AC and DC Power

The Schumacher PP-2200 is designed to serve all of your portable AC and DC power needs. The unit’s front control panel holds two three-pronged AC outlets which are powered by its built-in 400-watt inverter and cooling fan. Together these allow for safe, effecient conversion of the DC oriented power of the 22Ah battery into AC power suitable for electrical devices that exhibit a power draw of 400-watts or less. In the event of a power draw in excess of 400-watts, the inverter is designed to automatically shut down. This safety feature prevents damaging the inverter while testing devices and equipment. The unit’s front control panel also contains a convenient inverter on/off switch which allows users to keep devices plugged without causing an uneccessary drain on the internal battery. After plugging in, simply flip the switch on when you need AC and flip it off when you are finished. Access to DC power is even easier via the side-oriented DC cigarette lighter style outlet. Providing a full 12-volts/15-amp max, this power is always on, meaning that all you need to do is plug in your device via its DC power adapter (not included) and let the power flow.

Maintaining Your Charge From Anywhere

Maintaining the charge within the Schumacher PP-2200 is a breeze as well. After use, and when near to a standard wall outlet, simply connect the PP-2200 to it via the included AC wall charger. Once a full charge has been attained the unit will automatically go into maintain mode and maintain the battery at full charge without damaging it if you choose to leave the PP-2200 plugged in. You can even charge the internal battery of the PP-2200 while driving using the male-to-male charger cable (p/n: 38-99-001564 – sold separately). To do so insert one end of the accessory cable into the 12-volt DC power outlet and the other end into the vehicle’s accessory outlet (lighter socket), ensuring that the DC charging accessory is unplugged when your vehicle’s engine is not running to prevent car battery drainage. Either way that you choose to charge the PP-2200 you can monitor the units charging status right from its control panel with the push of a button.
