The pac will have a door on both sides that hide the cables you hook to a battery to help jump start a car once it is charged up. The cord that you say has a cig plug on one end is used to charge it using your car plug. There is another door on the back of the Pac that holds all the accessories, extra fuses and the charging cords. It does not sound like you have the A/C adaptor to plug it into a wall outlet.. If this unit is old the internal battery may be bad these Pac's are notorious for battery failure. You can find these batterys on eBay for about $13.

    But where do you plug the 2 negative and positive ends at with the 2 very small connectors? I am not sure how old it is, but I could find an AC cord and try it. but need to know where to connect the 2 split ends with the positive and negative.

    The port to charge it is in the rear compartment.

My garmin nuvi 650 na keeps depleting its battery even though I just fully charge it on the computer. It also does not charge when I plug it in the cigarette lighter in the car. The screen turns dark...


well if you have the factory car charger. There is a fuse inside of it. This is indicated in the manual. But it could also be the cigarette lighter fuse in the car is blown. I would make sure the cigarette outlet has power. If the cigarette lighter has power and you have the factory power cable that has a fuse try this. f the unit will not charge in your vehicle, you might need to replace the fuse that is located at the tip of the vehicle adapter.
1. to change the fuse unscrew the black, round end piece on the vehicle power adapter and remove it. inspect the fuse to see if it is blown. If not end here.
2. if determined the fuse is blown remove the fuse (glass and silver cylinder), and replace it with a 1A fast blow fuse.
3.ensure that the silver tip is placed in the black end piece. screw on the black end piece
let me know how this works by following up with a comment and i can instruct you on where to go from here. Thanks.

I need to know how to charge a marlboro power pak in detail


There are two different ways. You can use either an AC outlet in your home, or a DC outlet in your car (cigarette lighter). Your battery may be dead inside the unit, as these particular power packs are notorious for battery failure. I've had to put two in mine since I've owned it. You can get them on eBay for about $13.

Can not figure out how to charge the Vector start it pro


Easy, just insert the "cigarette lighter style" plug from the A/C charger into the "cigarette lighter style" socket on the top of the unit, and then insert the A/C adapter in to a wall socket. It can also be charged in your car with a cord that has double "cigarette lighter style" plugs at ether end, one inserted in the Vector and the other in your cigarette lighter.
Wait, one more - clamp the units cables properly on to your cars battery terminals, then start your car. periodicly checking for full charge.
Hope it helps... Good luck

The best way is through the cigarette lighter port (You will need to buy a jumper cable with cigarette lighter plugs on both ends)And just plug it into another cars lighter port or a jumper pack port.This will put the 12 volts through the car needed to open the truck.

WE CHARGE THE MAGELLAN GPS AND TURN IT OFF. BUT WHEN WE GO TO USE IT AGAIN IT IS DEAD. I ONLY HAVE THE LIGHTER OUTLET TO HOOK UP FOR POWER SO WHEN I NEED TO PROGRAM IT IN THE HOUSE I DO NOT HAVE A WAY TO...


Hello kdiltzbook,

Most GPS units can be charged three different ways:

1. Connection to a computer via USB port
2. Connection to a automobile via cigarette lighter plug
3. Connection to a wall outlet via an AC adapter

Typically most GPS devices these days include only the USB cord. Some GPS units also include the cigarette lighter plug. For most GPS units the cigarette lighter plug and AC adapter are optional accessories have to be purchased in addition to the GPS.

You don't mention which model of Magellan GPS you have so I am not sure which cords your GPS should have included. It sounds like you have the cigarette lighter cord and the USB cord? I am sure that Magellan has an AC adapter available for your GPS. You will want to contact them directly (their website is http://www.magellangps.com) or visit an electronics store that sells Magellan GPS receivers (such as Best Buy™) to purchase the adapter.

However, most GPS receivers can be charged from the USB programming cord on the computer. However, ensure you are plugging the cord directly into a USB 2.0 on the computer itself NOT a port on a USB hub. (A USB hub may not output enough power to actually power and charge the GPS.)

You will also want to check and replace the fuse on the automobile plug.

I believe that both the USB and automobile cords should be charging the GPS. If neither adapter is charging the unit then the problem may be the GPS unit itself. The GPS may have a bad battery or problem with its charge circuitry. If that’s the case the unit may require factory service as the battery pack is generally not considered to be end user replaceable.


Best Regards,
Ken
