    Default Clarke Jumpstart 910 mains power help

    I seem to have lost the mains charger for my Clarke Jumpstart 910 and there doesnt seem to be any available online, and dont really fancy calling their helpline as that can be ag. It requires a 230/12v transformer but i dont know how to work out what ampage it needs to be as i was going to try and get a cheap one from maplins, the internal battery is a 12v 17ah if it helps. Any input welcome

    Isn't there an 'input' section on the rating plate that gives the voltage and amps required?

    If not and if it was me, I'd phone the helpline and ask how much a new one is - just so you know what price you're aiming to beat if nothing else. Often these parts are expensive, but you never know... 020 8988 7400.

    Also, they're a current item so you could try to view one and read the spec off the mains unit.

    I've got one of these which looks identical to the Machine Mart one although its badged under another name - Rolson
    On the charger it says :-
    Model FYB-DC 15V 500
    INPUT 230 -250 volt 50Hz
    Output 15V DC - 500ma

    Hope that helps mate

    Why not just put a normal car battery charger on the jump start crocodile clips and charge it that way ?, I have 2 jump packs and charge them both this way and its faster and they get a better charge too

    Would think so - its only a small car battery that's inside them - wouldn't leave it on charge too long as you will cook it. That's the beauty of the charger that's supplied - its only a trickle charge - thats a lot slower to charge - but that can be left on for a long period and it won't do any harm.

    Well it turns out the internal battery is shot, had it attached to a running car and stored no charge, so looking at £30 for new battery and £15 mains chrger, almost not worth fixing. Its a shame as its dead handy tool.
