I think you mean you want to charge the XP2260 (jump starter) with the 1200 (battery charger)? You shouldn’t need a battery charger to charge the XP2260 as it comes with its own charging adapter. I hope that answers your question. -Mark Reply Toky Ranaivoson July 26, 2014 • Hello, My name is Toky Ranaivoson and I created and patented a new type of clamp I think you should see. It’s the safest clamps ever produced. Clamps can safely touch and you can even hold the clamps in one hand without any fear of sparks when it’s connected to a live battery. It’s the first clamps of it’s kind. Please contact me back so that I can send you pictures. I also have a proposal for you if you are interested. Toky Reply Mark Ridgeway July 28, 2014 • Hi Toky, thanks for contacting us. CarBatteryChargersCentral.com is an affiliate site primarily and we don’t sell products of our own. I’m not sure we could write a post that would help you as we’re looking for retail products that are sold on Amazon and Ebay. Our parent, RFE Products Company, imports a variety of products that it resells in the U.S., but they are typically not parts of product, but whole products. Correct me if I’m wrong. -Mark Reply Jenny November 5, 2014 • Do you have car jump starter ? Could you pls send a procuct list with price list ?

Can you tell me where I can find one? Reply Mark Ridgeway March 6, 2015 • Hi Donna, Sorry for the delay. I thought I answered you via email, but the email did not go through. Here’s one on ebay – http://www.ebay.com/itm/Charger-AC-adapter-for-Peak-STANLEY-FATMAX-700-peak-350-AMP-J7CS-jump-starter-/141482989669 Here it is on Amazon – http://www.amazon.com/KHOI1971-CHARGER-ADAPTER-STANLEY-Compressor/dp/B00PLN6NDY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1424211545&sr=8-1&keywords=stanley+J7CS+ac+adapter Hope that helps! Best Regards, Mark Reply christel ellsberg March 28, 2015 • i have a honda fit 2013, i bought it last year new, the battery has died 3 times in the last 8 month, battery was replaced died again i like to buy a solar battery charger that keeps the battery going my battery in the car is 12 volt, 340 cca, 151r part#32500nc-00100m what is the best solar system to buy? Reply Mark Ridgeway March 28, 2015 • Chistel, your situation is very unusual. Something must be draining your battery or you have some other electrical problem. Just sitting there, your battery shouldn’t discharge fast enough to be dead that often. You should only need to hook it up to a maintenance charger if you’re going to leave your car parked and unused for a few months, like over the winter. Otherwise, if you’re sure you need a battery charger, I don’t recommend that you get a solar charger. They really aren’t designed for vehicles and if you get one that is, it will not be as efficient or cost effective as a regular AC trickle charger. If you’re off-the-grid and don’t have power to run a plug-in charger, then a good choice for a solar charger is http://www.amazon.com/ALLPOWERS-Maintainer-Automobile-Motorcycle-Batteries/dp/B00QRHDIPY/ref=zg_bs_387679011_20 or http://www.amazon.com/Sunforce-50107-Battery-Trickle-Charger/dp/B0091I1Q4Q/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1427563075&sr=8-6&keywords=solar+car+battery+charger If you have an AC power source, then I recommend that you get a “smart charger” like the Battery Tender Plus http://www.amazon.com/Deltran-Battery-Tender-021-0128-Charger/dp/B00068XCQU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1427563231&sr=8-1&keywords=battery+tender+plus or the Noco Genius 3500 http://www.amazon.com/NOCO-G3500-UltraSafe-Battery-Charger/dp/B004LWVEKS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1427563261&sr=8-1&keywords=noco+genius+g3500 I lean towards there being something wrong that is causing your battery to drain or not allowing power to reach the starter like an intermittent short. I hope this is helpful. -Mark Reply edwin vega October 1, 2015 • HELLO i WANT TO KNOW what solar panel do I need to charge my car battery ? please let me know TThanks Reply Mark Ridgeway October 3, 2015 • Hi Edwin, sorry for not getting back to you sooner. There are a lot of choices when it comes to charging your car battery because you can buy a solar panel and controller separately and pretty much easily build any setup you want. Solar panel chargers are not typically used for battery charging a 12V battery from near dead, but for battery tending and maintenance. So, I’m assuming you need a solar battery tender to keep a battery charged when it’s sitting for a long period. With that in mind, any of these 5W models would be a good choice. http://www.carbatterychargerscentral.com/solar-car-battery-charger-top-5-best-rated-5w-solar-battery-tenders/ Also, here’s the most popular model: http://www.carbatterychargerscentral.com/solar-powered-battery-chargers-most-popular-charger/ and here are some more popular models: http://www.carbatterychargerscentral.com/12-volt-battery-charger-top-5-solar/ Take a look, you should find just what you need! -Mark Reply JimMoore October 12, 2015 • Am looking for: Astro SP0616 Smart Plug 6 Gauge 16-Feet Booster Cables I have one set and really like it. Does not let me hook it up wrong. Where can I get a set? Regards, JimM Reply Toky Ranaivoson October 31, 2015 • Please check out my new product and if like it can you post it on your website? Reply D Wilson November 20, 2015 • The Prius starter battery has a single positive charging port under the hood, and the battery itself is apparently somewhere in the back. My question – the new Lithium jump starters say connect to positive and negative terminals which won’t be convenient, perhaps not possible, with the Prius – do the Lithium chargers work using a grounding bolt instead of a negative terminal, or do I need a lead acid battery charger? Toyota refuses to answer the question. Reply Mark Ridgeway November 20, 2015 • Hi D Wilson, Here’s a video that describes how to jump start your Prius. https://youtu.be/nxXL_g4ONrU I’m sure there are others. I’m not an expert on the Prius, but any jump starter should be able to function with the negative clip connected to ground. The reason that lithium jump starters specify being connected to the terminals is because most are sparkproof and reverse polarity protected which is why with jumper cables you always connect the negative cable to ground. Jumper cables can cause sparks when you try to connect them directly to the battery which could ignite gases around the battery and cause an explosion. I hope that helps! -Mark Reply Larry Reimnitz January 27, 2016 • Have a new 12117 battery minder and am confused about green maintenance button. What is if for and how does one know what position it is in after the button is pushed. I see no indicator lights that show regular charging or maintenance mode…. thanks. Larry Reply Mark Ridgeway January 31, 2016 • Hi Larry, According to the manual, when you press the green Maintenance button, the unit skips the constant power or bulk mode and goes right to Float mode (maintenance mode). Your indication that it is in Float mode should be a flashing green light. I attached the manual to an email and sent it to you in case you don’t have one. I hope that helps. – Mark Reply Leave A Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
