Does the universal plug n jump # 11-00971 connect to the exterior 12 volt connection on the left side of my Cessna? Can I connect a battery tender to the plug n jump?
The Plug N Jump, 11-00971, has a Cessna type plug that goes into a standard 3-pin power receptacle. A BatteryMinder, not a Battery Tender, is recommended to use on aircraft batteries, and is recommended to be used on the battery. If it is a sealed battery, it can be used with the battery in the aircraft, but if you have a wet battery, it should be taken out of the aircraft to be charged or maintained.
Will this Universal Plug N Jump work with a Cirrus? Part # 11-00971
Per the supplier: Yes, it should work fine. The Cirrus has the 3-pin plug that this uses.
My Cessna 172M has power receptacle part number AN2552-3A with 2 pins...can I use the lightweight portable jump connection 11-00971?
Per the supplier: Yes, it should work fine on a 172. We advise that you look inside the port all the way. There should be a short third pin called the solenoid pin that would make it a three pin receptacle.
The negative terminal is spinning and rotating, is this normal?
Yes, this is normal. The negative post is loose and will have swivel effect.
Will I be able to use the plug using a 12V car battery to jump start my C182 24V system?
Yes, the plug and jump is designed to be used with car batteries and 14 or 28V systems.
