If you follow these steps, you can keep your entry jump starter in good working condition and have a long service life. Keep these steps in mind to extend the life of your jump starter by a factor of 2-3 compared to not following the life of these starters.
1. Keep the jump starter in a charged state and avoid keeping the unit in a high discharge state for a long time. Keep in mind that the Quick Start battery has no storage issues and will not be subject to frequent charging even if it is only slightly discharged. The best practice is to charge the starter after each use. Even if this charging frequency is impractical, if you use the unit frequently, you should charge it every night. In the case of occasional use of the jump starter, please charge it every 3 months to ensure that the battery is not discharged for a long time.
2. Check the duty cycle of the jump starter. Each jump starter has a duty cycle in which the vehicle can only be shaken after a certain amount of rest time (for a jump starter) is required – for details on the jump starter, see Operator manual. For almost all jump starters, the recommended duty cycle is 6 seconds of start-up time and then rest for 3 minutes. This avoids excessive heat build-up in the starter battery, which can damage its internal structure and shorten its service life.
3. Store the jump starter in a medium temperature environment with a temperature between 50 ̊F and 70 ̊F (10 ̊-20 ̊C). Like a car battery, exposure to extreme temperatures can adversely affect the starter battery, both short-term and long-term. For example, a jump starter stored at 20 ̊F has a smaller jump start power than a jump starter stored at 60 ̊F. In the long run, prolonged exposure to high storage temperatures (>90 ̊F) will reduce the life of the quick start battery.
4. It is important to disconnect the jump starter from the running vehicle as soon as possible after the successful start of the jump. Always keep in mind all safety procedures and proper disconnect sequence. The typical output power of a vehicle alternator is much higher than the recommended charging rate of a jump starter battery. Charging the battery (any battery) at a rate higher than the recommended charging rate can compromise its long-term health. Many technicians keep the trip starter connected after a successful start, which is considered a quick and easy way to fully charge the device, but this should be avoided.
5. So far, our focus has been on the battery, which is the heart of the starter and the most critical component that affects its durability and longevity. In other words, other factors should be kept in mind. Keep in mind that many of the batteries that the starter is in contact with are not in good condition, which can cause battery acid on or around the column. In this case, after the battery-equipped vehicle is beating, wipe the clip with a clean cloth (especially the positive pole, which is the only clip that should be in contact with the battery) to remove residual battery acid. For fixtures with a high degree of acid contact, a mixture of baking soda and water can be used with a wire brush.
Following these simple steps can greatly extend the life of the starter and help ensure that the starter can be serviced every time you need it.
