GOOLOO GP37-Plus Jump Starter Safety Features
GOOLOO GP37-Plus comes with full set of safety features, including: short circuit protection, high temperature protection, reverse connection and reverse polarity protection, over-current/surge protection, over-voltage/surge protection and over-discharge protection.
All these features don't mean that this or any other jump starter is a toy - it can provide strong currents that can do plenty of damage, cause injuries or worse. So, read the manual and be careful when using it.
In order for GOOLOO GP37-Plus to be able to jump start an engine, it must be charged over 60% - this can be done by pressing power button once.
Next, plug the jumper cable into the battery pack and connect the jumper cable to the car battery (red clamp is positive/plus, black clamp is negative/minus - actually, ground in most situations!).
Now, wait for the indicator to turn green and only then start the car by turning on the ignition. And that is all.
Note: if the green light is blinking with buzzing sound, vehicle's battery is low. In this situation press 'Boost' button and wait for the Green Light to turn on (no flashing) - after that, start the engine within 30 seconds. If there is any red light turned on on the jump starter, DON'T start the engine - something is somewhere wrongly connected, so check everything!
