115 V socket 1 provides an alternating

115 V socket 1 provides an alternating voltage of 115 V, so that small electronic devices can be connected. These devices, such as games consoles, chargers and laptops, together should not consume more than a maximum of 150 W.

Requirements for operation of these devices:

the plug of the electronic device must be inserted fully into 115 V power socket 1.
the maximum wattage of the device to be connected must not exceed 150 W.
the on-board power supply is within a permissible volt range.
the 12 V sockets in the rear and the cargo compartment are operational.

Ensure that you do not pull on the cord.

Close flap 3.

Possible causes of malfunction:

the on-board power supply is not within a permissible volt range.
the temperature of the DC/AC converter is temporarily too high.
some small electronic devices have a constant nominal power of less than 150 W, but a very high inrush current.

These devices will not work. If you connect such a device, 115 V power socket 1 will not supply it with power.

If indicator lamp 2 still does not light up, contact a specialist workshop, e.g. an authorized Mercedes-Benz Center.
