Need ac female to ac female adapter

I have just purchased a Master Craft 4-in-1 1000-Amp/500 running watts Power Station, but the @#$& manufacturer has made the charging plug also the only AC port.

This means I have to buy an adapter before I can use it to power my laptop.

I have tried searching online for an ac female to ac female adapter, but get nothing.

If anyone knows where I might find such an adapter (inexpensive), I would like to know.

Thanks.

I think they built it that way because that male plug is only for charging. I can almost guarantee that it does NOT provide 120 VAC output. With the exposed contacts it would be extremely dangerous.

What you have is a battery powered air compressor that has a cigarette lighter socket. Here are the specs I found and nowhere does it mention providing 120 VAC.

12-volt sealed lead-acid AGM rechargeable battery delivers 1000-amp peak/500-amp starting power
12Ah battery capacity
12-volt DC output with 12-amp self-recover protection fuse
2.4-amp USB output
150 psi air compressor for inflating vehicle tires, trailer tires and recreational inflatables
Compressor hose with tire fitting has handy storage compartment
LED flashlight
Reverse polarity audio alarm with LED
LED battery status indicator
On/off switch
30" 6-gauge cable with 400-amp clamp
Includes 6-ft. 12-volt DC charge cord with cigarette plug

That is only used for jump starting and low voltage use.
I don't think it has an provisions for 120v out.

I can't find a manual for that unit online but I going to GUESS that the plug you see is to plug the unit into a wall receptacle and recharge the internal battery.

As stated, that it is for charging of the unit only. I use a different brand, but it's the same style.

OK. I feel like a complete dunce.

I guess it never occurred to me there could be a portable power station without an AC port. Really sorry for the bother.

I'm definitely going to return it.

Thanks.

Fen, I don't think you mentioned what purpose you had in mind.
