Bought Together Often


The TDB013 OBD Power Booster and Protector has been designed to protect your investment
from being damaged by issues with the vehicle you are testing. Many vehicles
can exhibit unknown problems and plugging in a piece of equipment worth
thousands of pounds is sometimes a gamble.

With jump packs, booster packs and car chargers the amount of
interference, Voltage spikes and Voltage surges can easily damage expensive

The TDB013 adds an additional level of insurance, and offers
the protection you need. The TDB013 will take the damage rather than your
expensive diagnostic equipment, and it won’t leave you without your equipment
for days and maybe even weeks while you get it repaired.

An additional clever feature of the TDB013 is its ability to
manage the supply voltage that is on Pin 16 of the OBD port. This varies
depending on the vehicle, condition of the battery and the wiring from the
battery to the OBD port. It is not uncommon to have only 11 volts at the OBD
port when the battery is at 12 Volts. The TDB013 will maintain 12 Volts to your
diagnostic equipment regardless whether the OBD port is at 10 Volts or even 15
Volts. It will maintain a fixed 12 Volts DC to pin 16.

This means it will smooth out any changes in Voltage due to
overcharging, boost packs or battery chargers which can cause havoc with
anything connected to the vehicle.

In additon if the battery level is a little on the low side,
and the diagnostic equipment requires 12 Volts to function, then have a fixed
12 Volts even when the battery is at 10 Volts can be a real plus when trying to
diagnose a vehicle problem.
