A new range of jumpstarters from Projecta now on sale in Australia and New Zealand offers higher performance and more reliability.
Designed by New Zealand and Australia’s leading battery maintenance and power equipment supplier, the new jumpstarters are robust and compact in design, featuring high quality AGM batteries, intelligent microprocessor-controlled safeguard protection and convenient 12-Volt accessory sockets.
The range includes 12V 900A, 12V 1200A, 12V 2000A and 12/24V 2200A jumpstarter that cater for passenger cars, crossovers and 4WDs, with the top unit capable of starting large petrol engines and 24V diesel engines up to 7 litres.
The new jumpstarters feature automatic 240V and 12V in-car charging to ensure optimum battery performance and long service life. The premium 2000A and 2200A models offer built-in 5-stage charging electronics for fast and comprehensive charging, which is ideal for performance batteries. These two models also feature advanced microprocessor-controlled protection, preventing the jumpstarter from misuse through over-discharging or cranking, which could damage the high performance AGM battery. In these situations the jumpstarter will shut down until re-charged or re-set by use of the over-ride button.
Polarity and surge protection are standard throughout the range, providing important protection for the user and the jumpstarter itself by preventing expensive and irreversible damage. The convenient over-ride button enables the unit to start a vehicle with a flat battery or with no battery at all.
L.E.D indicators are provided in the two smaller models displaying the battery state of charge, correct connection and re-charging status, whilst the two larger models have LCD Volt displays, showing the battery status at the push of a button.
Projecta says the use of high performance premium AGM batteries with high cranking capabilities, coupled with heavy duty leads and clamps, provides outstanding jumpstarting. They can also be used as a portable power supply for running camp lighting and the larger models for powering fridges.
The Projecta high performance jumpstarters are available from leading automotive outlets throughout New Zealand.
