Features & Specifications
Specifications:
Many battery chargers are available on the market, but few of them are universal chargers that can be used
for all battery types.
Using our kit, batteries of different voltages and capacities can be charged both quickly and normally. In
order to ensure that the battery is fully discharged prior to charging, an automatic discharger is also fitted.
Features:
Charge current from 15mA to 750mA (selectable)
Charges both of Ni/Cd and Ni/MH batteries
Usable battery voltage: 1.2V / 2.8V / 3.6V / 4.8V / 6V / 7.2V / 8.4V / 9.6V
Quick charge in 52 mins
Normal charge in 14 hours
Automatic discharge and charge cycle
Usable mains adapter: 15VDC /800mA, type PS1508
Dimensions: 85 x 78 mm
Usable housing type: G311

Assembly hints
1. Assembly (Skipping this can lead to troubles ! )
Ok, so we have your attention. These hints will help you to make this project successful. Read them carefully.
1.1 Make sure you have the right tools:
•
A good quality soldering iron (25-40W) with a small tip.
•
Wipe it often on a wet sponge or cloth, to keep it clean; then apply solder to the tip, to give it a wet look. This is called ‘thinning’ and will
protect the tip, and enables you to make good connections. When solder rolls off the tip, it needs cleaning.
•
Thin raisin-core solder. Do not use any flux or grease.
•
A diagonal cutter to trim excess wires. To avoid injury when cutting excess leads, hold the lead so they
cannot fly towards the eyes.
•
Needle nose pliers, for bending leads, or to hold components in place.
•
Small blade and Phillips screwdrivers. A basic range is fine.

1.3 Soldering Hints :
1- Mount the component against the PCB surface and carefully solder the leads
2- Make sure the solder joints are cone-shaped and shiny
3- Trim excess leads as close as possible to the solder joint

Mount a shunt over the 1.2V selection (charge a 1.2V battery).
Connect a DC mains adapter of 15V/800mA (ex. PS1508).
Check that the "-" is on the outside edge of the connector.
Turn the trimmer, RV1, to its mid position.
Push the push button, SW1, the green LED should normally light up.
After 12 seconds, the LED should go out. If this is not the case, then
adjust the trimmer. To the left reduces the time, to the right
increases the time.
Remove the CAL shunt.

Normal charge (14h)
25. USE WITH NORMAL CHARGE (14h)
• Mount a shunt over the 14h position.
• Select the battery voltage to be connected using a shunt on the 1.2V to 9.6V connection.
• Select the charge current with a shunt between 15mA and 750mA. The charge
current of a battery can be determined by dividing the battery capacity by 10 (then
select the closest to the charge current).
ex. : A battery with a capacity of 500mA/h should be charged with a current of
50mA, thus choose 55mA.
Push on the push button in order to start the cycle. If the battery is not yet completely discharged, then the red
LED will light up to indicate that discharging has started. Charging will automatically start afterwards for 14h.

Fast charge (52 mins)
26. FAST CHARGE (52 mins)
• Mount a shunt over the 52 min position.
• Select the battery voltage to be connected using a shunt on the 1.2V to 9.6V connection.
• Select the charge current with a shunt between 15mA and 750mA. The charge
current of a battery can be determined by dividing the battery capacity by 10
(then select the closest to the charge current).
ex. : A battery with a capacity of 500mA/h should be charged with a current of
50mA, thus choose 55mA.
Push on the push button in order to start the cycle. If the battery is not yet completely discharged, then the red LED
will light up to indicate that discharging has started. Charging will automatically start afterwards for 14h.

Fast charge (52 mins)
NOTE:
Only use the quick charge facility in the event of an emergency, as this type of charging can reduce the
battery lifetime.
Never mix batteries of different capacities.
Never select two voltages or current settings simultaneously.
