Q: What is the warranty for the Elite 3000?
A: The warranty is one year limited.
Q: Is the internal lithium battery user replaceable?
A: No. Any battery service must be rendered by Delta Force.
Q: How long will the battery hold its charge?
A: Up to one year. However, we recommend checking the battery level every 3 months to ensure it is over 10% charged.
Q: Can I use the Elite 3000 while it is charging?
A: Yes. You can use the system while it's charging.
Q: Can I fly on an airplane with the Elite 3000, or ship it myself?
A: No. The Elite 3000 cannot be carried on or checked onto passenger aircraft. Also, due to the size of the lithium battery, shipping the Elite 3000 needs to be facilitated by a hazmat certified shipper only.
Q: Can I connect lithium ion batteries to the Elite 3000?
A: No. Adding external batteries will negatively effect the lifespan of the battery. In addition, adding external batteries can be dangerous and is not allowed.
Q: The LCD is still on, but I’m no longer getting power from the Elite 3000 – Why?
A: The Elite 3000 is equipped with internal overload protection to prevent damage. In the event that the load power exceeds the rated power (2000 watts), the unit will turn off and an alarm will sound. Simply, switch the power button to OFF and allow it to cool for several minutes, then turn the system back on and reduce the power demand. *The same applies to both AC and DC loads.

Charging Your Elite 3000
The Elite 3000 has two ports for charging. Only connect one charge source at a time. Connecting two simultaneously will damage your system and may be dangerous.
•Port 1: AC Charging (the silver port)
This port is for AC charging ONLY. DO NOT USE THIS PORT FOR SOLAR CHARGING.
The Elite 3000 features a QUICK CHARGE 12.6V/30A battery charger. The charger has two small LED lights. The red light will be displayed when the system is charging. Once the light turns green, the system is fully charged.
*NOTE: The battery display may show 100% charge, but because of the unique CC/CV charging mode, the final charging time will take longer.
AC CHARGING TIME:
The AC charger provides 378 watts of power. This will charge your Elite 3000 in approx 5.5 hours from 70% depleted.
•Port 2: SOLAR/*WIND Charging (This is the black port)
The Elite 3000 has a 12V/30A charge controller built-in.
Maximum Input: Up To 360 Watts from solar or wind.
Please, only use 12V solar panels. If using more than one panel, connect panels in a PARALLEL wiring configuration only!
SOLAR CHARGING TIME:
In optimal conditions, the 360 watts will charge the Elite 3000 in approximately 6.5 hours, from 70% depleted.
*Charge times vary depending on the type of solar panels used, sun conditions, and angle of panels relative to the sun.
*See the section below for wind turbine charging.
Powering Your Devices
To power your devices, simply connect the device and turn on the appropriate, AC or DC power switch.
When you're done using your devices, please turn the Elite 3000 power switch to off or the system will continue to drain power from the battery.
Battery Type: The Elite 3000 uses an LG Lithium Polymer battery. This is a very lightweight battery with superior safety vs. lithium-ion NMC.
Best Practices: The Elite 3000 can power up to 2,000 watts from the AC outlets and 240 watts from the two DC ports. However, by sticking to lower power usage on a regular basis, you can maximize battery capacity and have achieve a longer lifespan.
Example: By using 50% battery power on a regular basis, you can expect to get 2,000 cycles from the battery. If you're using 70% of the battery power you can expect around 1,000 cycles.

SAFETY AND STORAGE GUIDELINES
NEVER connect solar panels or other charge sources exceeding 26 Volts (Open Circuit, abbreviated as VOC) to the Elite 3000.
NEVER connect solar panels in a SERIES wiring configuration. All solar panels must be connected in a PARALLEL wiring configuration.
NEVER store the Elite 3000 in environments exceeding 140 °F, such as a hot vehicle.
NEVER Use a external battery charger that is not supplied by Delta Force Power.
NEVER connect any external battery to the Elite 3000.
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING LITHIUM BATTERIES
In general, devices with large lithium ion batteries (like the Elite 3000) should be stored similar to a gas-powered generator: away from flammable items and on a cool, dry, non-combustible surface (such as a garage or storage shed).
When handling lithium batteries, do not short-circuit, crush, drop, mutilate, penetrate with foreign objects, apply reverse polarity, expose to high temperature or disassemble packs and cells. If a Lithium battery (or Elite 3000) overheats, hisses, bulges, or pops, immediately move the device away from flammable materials and place it on a non-combustible surface for at least 48 hours.
A Class-D fire extinguisher should be used to put out a lithium fire. If one is not available, DRY SAND or even DRY TABLE SALT can be safely used to douse the fire.
If you experience a lithium battery fire and the fire cannot be extinguished, allow the fire to burn out on its own in a controlled and safe manner. It is possible for burning lithium-ion batteries to reignite after being extinguished, so allow the device to remain on a non-combustible surface for at least 48 hours.
