Part: 9.1600.010

Champion Frame type 12v DC Charging Leads

These leads are designed for frame type Champion generators to give a 12v DC charge as and when required for applications like charging batteries.

It is compatible with the following Champion models:

  • CPG3500
  • CPG4000E1
  • CPG6500
  • CPG9000

Please note: This product is ONLY suitable for frame type generators and can be used on any inverters. This port and leads are NOT designed for use with sensitive 12-18v equipment and should never be used for these applications, the output is unregulated and will damage sensitive equipment. AC power & DC power MUST never be used at the same time, using AC & DC together will result in damage to generator and possibly equipment always use one or the other only at a time.

Specificatons:

  • Voltage – 12-14v
  • Amperage – 8.3A
  • Charging time - 3 hours Max

Starting vs Max vs Running Watts

Most motor-driven products that you will connect to your generator need extra watts when they start, this is known as starting watts.

The Starting Watts listed on your generator is the wattage the generator can output for an average of 6 seconds (Inverter) or 10 minutes (Open Frame Type).

Once this period is over, and if the wattage has not reduced the Overload Protection will activate and the generator will trip using the following methods circuit breaker (frame type) and flashing overload light (Inverter), if this happens the power (wattage) needs to reduced or disconnected immediately and the generator needs to be reset by stopping the generator and turning everything to the ‘OFF’ position and leaving for minimum 2 minutes (Inverter Only).

The Maximum Watts listed on your generator is the MAX watts output the generator can run at – however it is not recommended to run your generator at the  maximum watts for periods more than average 5 minutes (Inverter) and 60 minutes (Open Frame Type). Once this period is over, and if the wattage has not reduced the Overload Protection will activate and the generator will trip using the following methods circuit breaker (frame type) and flashing overload light (Inverter), if this happens the power (wattage) needs to reduced or disconnected immediately and the generator needs to be reset by stopping the generator and turning everything to the ‘OFF’ position and leaving for minimum 2 minutes. While working in the max zone on an Inverter you will have solid red overload light this is normal.
