Question about Vector VEC010S Jump Start System 300 Amp starting power

1 Answer

Recharging the Vector Start-It compact elite Jump Starter 12 volt

Do I need to charge it with the power switch ''on''
I have been charging it now for 4 hours, while the switch was on ''off''....but the battery status is still at ''low''

Also...I read that even if the ac adapter doesn't seem to work, and I lost the 12 volt dc adapter to plug into the cigarette lighter of my van, I could recharge it by connecting it to the battery of my van while it's running. Is that correct?

    Exactly the same situation.  I'm going on a 1000 miler to Mexico and will try to recharge enroute.  I remember reading that the car charger, if it works, won't shut off automatically when it reaches full, the way the house charger is supposed to, so I'll keep a eye on it if it seems to be working.

Yeah from what im to understand... you charge it overnight, and yes another way to use it (and possibly better way) is connecting to the battery directly..... it should work on your van fine i think, its worth a shot, hope this helps :)

VEC012POB Manual


Vector sold to Black & Decker who then sold to Bacchus. The only manual I find with the same number you show is NOT yellow and has no USB connection. It is charged by a 110 volt wall wart charger that plugs into a receptacle on the unit, or a 12 volt cigar lighter cable that plugs into the 12 volt port on the unit. Here's a brochure for the model number you provoided:

How do you recharge the vector? Don Rutledge


VECTOR VECO12B, JUMP´N CHARGE SMART BATTERY CHARGER.

Hola a todos, yo he comprado recientemente (Febrero 2011) este sistema. Yo he tenido el mismo problema el cual no carga la bater?a interna del sistema. El sistema de carga de bater?as funciona bien pero el sistema de jump-starter no funciona.

Luego de hacer varias pruebas, de leer en internet y analizar el problema, yo llegu? a la conclusi?n de que la bater?a interna esta da?ada o fuera de especificaci?n.

Que sucede? Lo que pasa es que la bater?a interna del jump-starter se encuentra en un nivel de tensi?n (Voltios) se encuentra demasiado baja, lo cual no es suficiente para que el cargador lo vea como suficiente para iniciar la carga, muestra la falla F01 o F02.

Lo que yo realice fue lo siguiente: usando el cable de carga de 12 volt DC, yo coloque un extremo conectado al salida de 12 volt DC desde jump-starter y el otro extremo del cable yo lo conect? con los cables auxiliares a una bater?a externa. Esto hace que se conecte la bater?a interna del jump-starter, con la bateria externa. Esto sin usar los cables de pinzas para bater?as.

Bajo esta condici?n yo conect? el jump-starter a una toma de 110 volts AC y yo lo encend? y luego yo seleccion? el nivel de carga (2, 4 o 6 Amps). El cargador inici? la carga de las dos baterias, (la bateria interna del jump-starter y la externa).

Esto hace que la corriente de carga se distribuya equitativamente (dependiendo de la impedancia de cada bater?a) entre las dos bater?as.

Yo lo deje en esa condici?n por 12 horas, siempre chequeando la condici?n del sistema.

Luego de ese tiempo, yo desconect? el sistema y yo medi en el socket de 12 volt DC, la bater?a interna y subi? a un nivel de 11,50 volts DC. Desde ese momento el jump-starter, comenz? a reconocer la bater?a interna como buena, y yo lo deje dos horas carg?ndose a si mismo, y luego de esto, el nivel de tensi?n era de 14,40 volts DC.

Yo apagu? el cargador y el sistema quedo cargado dispuesto para trabajar.

De todo esto yo deduzco que el problema era la bater?a interna la que no tenia suficiente nivel el?ctrico para que iniciara el cargador de baterias su trabajo.

Saludos, yo espero que esto le sea de ayuda para todos.

VECTOR VECO12B, Jump'n CHARGE SMART BATTERY CHARGER.
Hello everyone, I recently purchased (February 2011) this system. I have had the same problem which does not charge the internal battery system. The battery charging system works fine but the jump-starter system does not work.
After various tests, online reading and analyzing the problem, I came to the conclusion that the internal battery is damaged or out of specification.
What happens? What happens is that the internal battery jump-starter is in a voltage (V) is too low, which is not enough for the charger to see it as sufficient to start charging, it displays the fault F01 or F02.
What I made was this: using the power load of 12 volt DC, I placed one end connected to 12 volt DC output from jump-starter and the other end I connected with the auxiliary cable to an external battery . This makes connecting the internal battery jump-starter, with the external battery. This without using the battery cable clamps.
Under this condition I connect the jump-starter to a power of 110 volts AC and I turned it on and then I select the level of charge (2, 4 or 6 amps). The charger begins charging the two batteries (internal battery jump-starter and external).
This makes the load current is distributed equally (depending on the impedance of each battery) between the two batteries.
I leave it in that condition for 12 hours, always checking the condition of the system.
After that time, I disconnect the system and I measurement in the 12-volt DC socket, the internal battery and up to a level of 11.50 volts DC. Since then the jump-starter, began to recognize the internal battery as well, and I leave two hours charging himself, and after that, the level of tension was of 14.40 volts DC.
I turned off the charger and the system is loaded ready for work.
From all this I deduce that the problem was the internal battery which did not have enough power level to initiate the battery charger work.
Greetings, I hope this is helpful for everyone.
Ali, from Venezuela.

I have a power on board veco12pob 450 amp jump starter unit and my question is what kind of adaptor do i need . I would like to know the volts and amps.


I have the same problem: today I tried a 12 volt, 1500 milliamp (1.5 amp) power cord and it has charged mine halfway, so far. It fits the plug in, but not certain, yet, that it has enough power to fully charge.

My vector start-it elite jump starter is not holding charge even after days of charging. Why?


Hi Ydja,

The batteries on these jump boxes don't last very long. I've been through three of them. Never again.

Now I just carry an extra battery. It's more powerful and has laste longer than the three jump boxes put together.

Best regards
Mike

I lost the AC adapter for my Vector Compact Elite 300 amp jumpstarter (veco11). What output adapter should I use to charge it? I have a 12 volt that doesn't seem to work.


You need about 14 volts to charge a 12 volt battery. The original charger MAY have some form of current limiting in it.

ALSO pay attention to the polarity of the charger.
