In this article, we will explain some possible causes and solutions for your Pilot Instaboost charging issues. We will also show you how to replace the battery if it is damaged or worn out.


What is Pilot Instaboost?




Pilot Instaboost is a portable jump starter and power bank that can help you start your car or charge your devices in an emergency. It has a 12V, 400A lithium battery that can deliver up to 20 jump starts on a single charge. It also has a USB output, a DC output, an LED flashlight, and an emergency beacon.


Pilot Instaboost comes with a jumper cable with a safety chip, an auto charger, an auto socket, an AC charger, and a storage bag. You can charge it from a wall outlet or a car cigarette lighter. It has four blue LED lights that indicate the battery level and charging status.


Why Pilot Instaboost Won't Charge?




There are several reasons why your Pilot Instaboost might not charge properly. Here are some of them:


  • The battery is too low. If the battery level is below 25%, the Pilot Instaboost might not charge or turn on. You need to charge it for at least 3 hours until all four LED lights are solid-illuminated.



  • The charger is faulty. If the charger is damaged or not compatible with the Pilot Instaboost, it might not deliver enough power to charge it. You need to use the original charger that came with the Pilot Instaboost or a compatible one.



  • The connection is loose. If the connection between the charger and the Pilot Instaboost is loose or dirty, it might interrupt the charging process. You need to make sure the charger plug is firmly inserted into the Pilot Instaboost AC/DC input (3) and the wall outlet or car cigarette lighter.



  • The environment is too hot or cold. If the temperature is too high or too low, it might affect the battery performance and charging efficiency. You need to charge the Pilot Instaboost in a cool dry place and avoid direct sunlight or extreme heat or cold.



  • The battery is damaged or worn out. If the battery is defective or has reached its end of life, it might not hold a charge or deliver enough power to start your car or charge your devices. You need to replace the battery with a new one.



How to Replace Pilot Instaboost Battery?




If you have tried all the possible solutions above and your Pilot Instaboost still won't charge, you might need to replace the battery. However, this is not an easy task and requires some skills and tools. Here are some steps to follow:


  • Open the case of the Pilot Instaboost. You will need to cut away the plastic enclosure with a vibrating saw or a sharp knife. Be careful not to damage the internal components or expose yourself to battery chemicals.



  • Remove the old battery from the circuit board. You will need to cut away the wires that connect the battery terminals to the circuit board. Be careful not to short circuit the battery or cause sparks.



  • Find a compatible replacement battery. You will need to find a 12V, 400A lithium battery that has the same size and shape as the old one. You can try searching online for "Pilot Instaboost replacement battery" or contact Pilot Automotive for assistance.



  • Solder the new battery to the circuit board. You will need to solder the wires from the new battery terminals to the circuit board where the old ones were connected. You will need a 100W soldering iron and some soldering skills to do this properly.



Close the case of the Pilot Instaboost. You will need to use some silicone adhesive or epoxy glue to seal the case and insulate the components. You can also use some plastic cable ties to secure the wires


  • Test the Pilot Instaboost. You will need to charge the Pilot Instaboost for at least 3 hours until all four LED lights are solid-illuminated. Then you can try to start your car or charge your devices with it.



  • Dispose of the old battery properly. You will need to follow the local regulations for disposing of lithium batteries. Do not throw them in the trash or burn them. You can contact your local recycling center or battery retailer for more information.
