|The Plug & Jump is a very portable unit which can be carried in the aircraft at all times because it is so lightweight. It can be used to start the aircraft from an ordinary car using standard jumper cables. It comes in two models; The Universal Model is used for Cessna, Beechcraft, etc. (3 pin plug) and the Piper Model is a single pin. The Plug and Jump is a simple conduit of power from any external power source to the aircraft. It is not a battery in and of itself. The Plug n Jump can be used for either 28V or 14V systems.|
Works great. Tight fit but I want it that way so it stays but in the prop wash. A little dielectric grease also helps. Highly recommend for cold weather/backcountry flyers. I bring a little lithium jump box taht is about the side of VHS tape (if you remember those) and it works like an APU if I want it to.
I am only ordering this now, but Im quite happy to see that everything fits tight from the manufacturer. Its a heck of a lot easier to trim/sand down to the personal desired fit than get a plug thats supposed to be connect to long wires near the prop be loose, requiring electrical tape or somesuch to keep the plug from falling out.
very tight. just got it. don t know if one has to pry the females apart.
If you ever leave a Master Switch on at an airport that has no mechanic present, you will wish that you had one of these in the gear that you carry on your plane. I may never need to use one again, but I will always remember the good guy at Pearland Airport who had one in his plane on a recent Sunday morning.
Promptly delivered. Only concern is a very tight fit. Makes me wonder if I will have problems disconnecting the plug while in close proximity to spinning prop.
Exactly as advertised
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.
Per the supplier: Yes, it should work fine. The Cirrus has the 3-pin plug that this uses.
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.
Yes, this is normal. The negative post is loose and will have swivel effect.
No, a 12volt source can not jump a 24V system. You can use this unit for either 12 or 24 volt aircraft's, but the power source voltage needs to be the same as the aircraft.
The approximate dimensions are 11" Length x 3" Width x 2" thickness. Weight is roughly 1.6 lbs.
This product can be used for a Cirrus. However, it is not meant to be used for charging the battery from a charger. It is meant for a jump start from a car battery.
Yes, the plug and jump will work with most GA aircraft including Mooneys. Piper aircraft models will require part # 11-00972.
