The all new Patent Pending Start Pac model Li2000QC utilizes the latest technology in Lithium batteries. These batteries provide the same power as the lead-acid type but are 42% lighter and 32% smaller. In addition, lithium batteries have two other major advantages: twice the battery life of lead-acid batteries, no sulphation problems (can be left in a discharged state without causing damage to the battery plates).
This compact portable Lithium Ion starting unit is a full 28VDC battery pack and will provide superior starts on small to medium size turbine engines. It has a built in charger with a total of 3.5 amps output and a recharge time of approximately 6 hours.
Per the manufacturer, the Start Pac LI2000GC is only designed to be used to start the aircraft. Any other use that draws more than 3 amps will damage the unit. This is not to be used as a GPU.
This is not normal. This would mean that the charger cannot see the battery and it is not charging. It could be either one of two things. The terminals on the top of the battery are possibly dirty. You would need to take the top off to the clean the terminals. After they have been cleaned, put the top back on and try to recharge the battery. If this still does not work, contact Start Pac with the serial number so they can figure out how old the unit is. This would mean it is possibly a component failure in the system.
The units weight is about 30 lbs. We recommend he carry his Start Pac in the cabin where its warm. If you let this cold soaked it will not work well. Try to keep the Start Pac from 70-900F. You can carry it in your own aircraft but not on a passenger aircraft.
Input power is 110v.
