The Black & Decker BB78 Simple Start is a portable device that can boost or jump a drained automobile or boat battery. The unit uses a rechargeable battery for power. The battery should be recharged after each use or at least once every six months to ensure it has enough power to jump a battery when needed. Black & Decker recommends only using the supplied charging adapter to recharge the unit.

Step 1

Press the "On/Off" button to turn the unit on.

Step 2

Plug the AC charging adapter's barrel tip into the DC charging port on the top of the Black & Decker BB7B Simple Start unit.

Step 3

Plug the opposite end of the AC charging adapter into an electrical outlet.

Step 4

Push the "Recharge Unit" button. The unit will then beep and the battery status LED indicator light will blink green, indicating the unit is charging.

Step 5

Unplug the AC charging adapter from the electrical outlet and the Simple Start unit when the battery status indicator light displays a solid green light, indicating the unit is fully charged. If the unit is fully drained, the unit can take up to 24 hours to recharge.
