This Maxx Volts EL-1 HV Charger kit can be used to charge a Ford Escape hybrid battery that is drained or discharged to the point the vehicle will not start. This Hybrid Battery Charger system will charge the hybrid battery high enough to reach the minimum voltage threshold that will allow starting of the vehicle.
NOTE: It’s not a ‘plug-and-play’ full charging system kit with cooling fan support. It is a tool designed to be used to charge the hybrid battery high enough to re-start the vehicle so the vehicle's battery management system can take over. It is not designed be used to take the hybrid battery to 100% state of charge (SOC) and it is the user responsibility to disconnect the charger from the vehicle hybrid battery once the minimum voltage threshold has been met and the car will start.
This kit is designed to assist you with your Ford Escape if it won’t start due to a low voltage hybrid battery condition and is not for charging your hybrid battery to 100% SOC state of charge.
Kit includes a 1-piece wiring harness with leads for hybrid battery positive and negative connections. Kit also includes leads for (experimental use only) 12v AUX power and ground output for those who want to experiment with auxiliary external battery cooling fan and need a 12v supply source. Will support 12V 5A output conservatively. Not responsible for user exceeding the maximum rated output of AUX 12v output. Internally fused however service by manufacturer required if exceeding the 12v AUX output limit and a fuse blows.
