Kendrick Power Packs

Kendrick Power Packs These Power Packs have been popular for many years due to their high build quality and reliability. With proper care and maintenance, these packs will last many years. All our wiring connections are soldered (the battery terminal connections excepted). We use Schurter circuit breakers on all our power packs (2080 excepted) so there is no need to carry extra fuses. Our battery cases are all metal and powder coated (#2080 excepted which does not have a case). We use Deltran battery float chargers and include a tough padded cordura carry bag with each battery. The carry bags have a pocket to store the charger when not in use. Lastly, our packs are designed for easy battery replacement. For answers to Frequently Asked Questions see the Kendrick Power Pack FAQ Sheet.

Dual and Quad Power Pack

These batteries are for those who demand the most of a portable battery and want it to have high end features. The 2081 has 2 cigarette lighter jacks and the 2082 has 4, each one individually fused with a quality circuit breaker. There is an LED display to indicate remaining voltage. Pressing the red button next to the display will give the state of charge of the battery.

The power jacks have permanently attached plastic caps that will flip closed to keep dirt out of the jacks when not in use.

The cordura carry bags have a couple of bult in pockets to accomodate various batttery accessories, such as cables or the charger.

These Power Packs have the muscle to meet the demands of the modern amateur astronomer / imager. They are rugged, beautifully made and dependable. With proper care they will last for 5 years or 500 charges, whichever comes first. A battery float charger is included with these batteries.

The included charger will never overcharge your battery and may be left plugged into the battery for extended periods of time without harming the battery. We offer an optional 6 amp float charger that will charge the #2082 battery in 5 to 6 hours (not recomended for the #2081). Customers outside of North America will need to choose a battery charger with a plug that is appropriate for their country (see the shopping cart below).

When your battery dies, do not throw it away! The battery inside these units are easily replaceable! These batteries are closed with Philips Head screws and replacing a dead battery has never been easier. See our Battery Replacement Instructions. Owners of these power packs that are closed with rivets will follow the instructions as shown here. Owners of the Packs with Philips head screws will follow the same instructions but only require a Philips #8 screw driver instead of a drill and pop rivet gun.

Charging Your Battery

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not discharge your Kendrick battery below 11.6 volts as it may be damaged internally. When charging the battery, be sure to plug the charger into the battery first, then into a wall socket. Failure to do this will result in the battery failing to charge.

The charger will never overcharge the battery and may be left plugged into the battery for extended periods of time without harming the battery. We have a 6 amp float charger available that will charge the 2082 and 2083 family of batteries in 5 to 6 hours (not recomended for the 2081 or 2080 batteries). Customers outside of North America will need to choose a battery charger with a plug that is appropriate for their country (see the shopping cart below).

NEVER use an automotive charger to charge these batteries. It will ruin the battery. Automotive chargers charge at a higher voltage than other battery chargers. If the charger charges at 14.8 volts or higher, the electrolyte will begin to turn to gas and ruin the battery. In a normal car battery this is not a problem as the battery can be topped up. In a sealed battery (which ours is) the electrolyte that turns to gas will be vented through its seals and cannot be replaced."

A Note About Deep Cycle Batteries And Low Voltage Cut-Off

 

Warranty

Customers are strongly encouraged to inspect and test their battery immediately upon receipt. Check to make sure it is fully charged, that the LED display works correctly, that the charger works properly.Also, be sure to continue to check the voltage for several days after receiving it. It should hold its voltage. If it does not, contact Kendrick.

The battery is under warranty for three months from date of shipping. The rest of the battery pack is under warranty for 6 months after the date of purchase. Consequential damages for malfunctions, resulting from accident, misuse, abuse, failure to follow operating instruction, or unauthorized repairs will void this warranty.

Every battery is shipped in a heavy duty shipping box. Customers are requested to keep this box for the warranty period in case the battery should ever need to be returned for maintenance or warranty replacement. BATTERIES MUST BE RETURNED IN THEIR ORIGINAL SHIPPING BOX FOR WARRANTY REPAIRS/REPLACEMENT. Warranties for batteries will only be honored on batteries shipped in their original packaging.
