Portable Power for All Your Devices

Invariably it seems that when you step away from the convenience of a household outlet, that will be the time that you need electricity the most. The Schumacher PP-2200 Portable Outdoor Power Unit provides just that in a package that is small enough and light enough to easily fit in any car or home emergency kit, while also being powerful enough to keep most devices running for hours at a time before needing recharging. The unit consists of a powerful 22Ah maintenance-free AGM lead-acid battery sealed within a compact and durable corrosion-resistant plastic case with a rugged handle. This allows for maximum power that is usable both inside and outside in most conditions. Whether for use on TVs, spotlights, small kitchen appliances, cell phones or rope lighting and more, the PP-2200 has all the power you need when away from standard household power sources.

AC and DC Power

The Schumacher PP-2200 is designed to serve all of your portable AC and DC power needs. The unit's front control panel holds two three-pronged AC outlets which are powered by its built-in 400-watt inverter and cooling fan. Together these allow for safe, effecient conversion of the DC oriented power of the 22Ah battery into AC power suitable for electrical devices that exhibit a power draw of 400-watts or less. In the event of a power draw in excess of 400-watts, the inverter is designed to automatically shut down. This safety feature prevents damaging the inverter while testing devices and equipment. The unit's front control panel also contains a convenient inverter on/off switch which allows users to keep devices plugged without causing an uneccessary drain on the internal battery. After plugging in, simply flip the switch on when you need AC and flip it off when you are finished. Access to DC power is even easier via the side-oriented DC cigarette lighter style outlet. Providing a full 12-volts/15-amp max, this power is always on, meaning that all you need to do is plug in your device via its DC power adapter (not included) and let the power flow.

Maintaining Your Charge From Anywhere

Maintaining the charge within the Schumacher PP-2200 is a breeze as well. After use, and when near to a standard wall outlet, simply connect the PP-2200 to it via the included AC wall charger. Once a full charge has been attained the unit will automatically go into maintain mode and maintain the battery at full charge without damaging it if you choose to leave the PP-2200 plugged in. You can even charge the internal battery of the PP-2200 while driving using the male-to-male charger cable (p/n: 38-99-001564 – sold separately). To do so insert one end of the accessory cable into the 12-volt DC power outlet and the other end into the vehicle's accessory outlet (lighter socket), ensuring that the DC charging accessory is unplugged when your vehicle's engine is not running to prevent car battery drainage. Either way that you choose to charge the PP-2200 you can monitor the units charging status right from its control panel with the push of a button.

Amazons policy is no return stating hazmat material.

Fully charged (after a couple of days) it ran a single 40 watt lamp for the same, about 6 to 8 hours.

This is a great product. Do yourself a favor, don't bother with the included charger. Buy a BatteryMinder desulphating conditioning charger with a cigerette adapter. You can leave it plugged in continuously and the battery will be maintained in peak condition. Also, the "hum" mentioned by another reviewer is the cooling fan for the inverter which comes on during high loads.

Update:
I've been using this battery to run astronomy equipment regularly for the last year - primarily via 12 volt plug. I've charged it exclusively with the BatteryMinder and it's always 13.6 volts when I disconnect it for use. No complaints with the battery. However, when I use it, the the alarm on the inverter seems to sound well before voltage is critically low - somewhere around 12 volts on my digital meter.

I am able to power my telescope, laptop, and Canon Eos for hours, and have still never gone below 3/4 charge. I have learned the key to success though, is the unit must remain on the charger when stored. They clearly warn you to charge at least monthly. Only negative is recharge takes a very long time (normally overnight. Wish it had 1 more cigarette adapter.

I use this unit to power my laptop, printer, wireless router, etc. I use it mainly for business because I always need a power outlet where one is not available. I bought two of these and will probably buy more!

This item was not new as stated. When I opened the packed the inner box was old and scratched. the box that contained the charging cord is old and falling apart. The pin on the charging cord is all scratched so you could see it was used many times.This seller is dishonest. The power pack itself has a huge crack in it going almost the whole width of it. the sticker on the power pack is old & scratched. I think they purposely packed this unit poorly to make it look like the shipper UPS damaged it but I don't think that is the case. This unit looks like it has been damaged & kicking around a warehouse for a long time. Amazons policy is no return stating hazmat material. I will now have to dispute it on my card. This is a bogus return policy and is illegal in my state.

I recently bought one, charged it as instructed, used it once and after that IT WOULD NOT CHARGE AGAIN! It was supposedly a new item! Called manufacturer but was told to contact AMAZON. Tried to get a replacement online (no tel.# to talk to an Amazon agent directly) but it's classified as hazardous and therefore CAN'T BE RETURNED OR REPLACED. It wasn't classified as hazardous when they send it to me. Where's the logic in that! Now I'm stuck with a DEAD SCHUMACHER !!! Amazon.com thank you for that. My advice: DO NOT BUY ONE UNLESS YOU ARE SURE IT IS AN ITEM THAT CAN BE REPLACED.

After charging the battery for 72 hours as directed, we switched it on, plugged in a light and were greeted with a loud beep and a green light, but absolutely no power. And since these batteries cannot be shipped back, there is no way to return them. A disappointingly shoddy product.

I purchased this unit a few months ago and used it a few times. Now it will not work and when I turn it on all I get is a high pitched tone. It shows fully charged, but as soon as you plug anything into it the high pitched tone sounds and there is no power. Not very happy because Amazon will not take it back or provide a way to return it for repair.
