Heavy-duty jumper

Projecta has released a 1500A, 12-volt jump starter, which uses a a special Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery, allowing for a full day’s operation without requiring a recharge.

The combination of the LiFePO4 battery and what Projecta calls “Rapid Recharge Technology” means the jump starter can accept charge directly from a vehicle alternator (provided the alternator is fully functioning), with the RRT automatically engaging when sufficient current is present.

In a case with an alternator current of 40A, 20 seconds of ‘Rapid Recharge’ will recover 80 per cent of the energy lost during a 200 Amp, five-second jump start. Once the battery has been fully recharged, the RRT automatically switches off to prevent overheating.
