As a general rule, a battery should never be allowed to be left in a discharged state. (This causes unnecessary damage and greatly reduces the life of the battery). There is a popular misconception that a battery can rapidly re-charge itself in a short space of time. (This is simply not true for most batteries). If not properly re-charged after use, irreparable damage to the battery will occur if not maintained with a full charge. Previously the older type batteries could be serviced and the electrolyte (distilled water) added. Most common battery chargers were developed to charge these older type batteries. Most modern batteries are of a sealed maintenance free design, and require specialised charging. The battery charger must not subject the battery to over charging (gassing) as this will deplete the electrolyte and cause damage to the battery. Newer batteries such as Dry Cell, AGM and Gel batteries should never be charged with the older type battery chargers. The National Luna Battery Charger is suitable for all battery types Small Battery Mode CHARGING MODES For Batteries greater than 12Ah For Batteries less than 12Ah Mode 14.4V/0.8A This mode is suitable for batteries less than 12Ah. BOOST Mode 14.4V/5.0A This mode is used for Flooded (WET), MF, VRLA, AGM, GEL, Deep Cycle and Calcium batteries. Mode 14.7V/0.8A This mode is recommended for AGM batteries less than 12Ah. This mode is also suitable for charging batteries in sub-zero temperatures. Mode 14.7V/5.0A This mode is recommended for AGM batteries. This mode is also suitable for charging batteries in sub-zero temperatures. Mode 14.4V/0.8A + 16.0V/0.3A This mode is suitable to recover severely discharged batteries smaller than 12Ah. (Recommended to boost at least once a year). BOOST Mode 14.4V/5.0A + 16.0V/1.5A This mode is suitable to recover severely discharged batteries. (Recommended to boost at least once a year). BOOST Mode 14.7V/5.0A + 16.0V/1.5A This mode is suitable to recover severely discharged AGM batteries or charging in sub-zero temperatures. Mode 14.7V/0.8A + 16.0V/0.3A This mode is suitable to recover severely discharged AGM batteries smaller than 12Ah or charging in sub-zero temperatures.

Most vehicles are fitted with an electronic alarm system that requires power from the battery. In the event of the vehicle being left in storage and not used (i.e. being on holiday) the battery could be completely discharged, causing irreparable damage. Connecting a maintenance charger will keep the battery in peak condition. • Auxiliary - When camping, an additional auxiliary battery can be used to provide power for 12Volt lighting & refrigeration. (It can take up to 24Hrs to recharge the battery back to full capacity after use). - When a Dual Battery System is installed in a vehicle the main battery remains fully charged and only the auxiliary battery is being used (discharged). Even though the car is driven for, say 6Hrs, and the main battery is fully charged, the auxiliary battery has not had sufficient time to recharge completely. • Household - Should there be a power failure at home, back-up batteries used for motorised gates, computer UPS and alarm systems would need to be re-charged. 8 Step state of charge indicators Mode Button Max Time 3 seconds 10 hours 1) Diagnosis : This unique diagnostic function checks the status of a battery and ascertains if the battery can accept charging. 2) Recovery : A deeply discharged battery of over 2.0V can be recovered and charged with pulse charging of a small current. 3) Bulk : 80% of energy is returned in this phase with maximum charging current. 4) Absorption : With use of declining current technology charging up to almost 100% is achieved. 5) Analysis : Checks status of charge. If battery does not retain energy, it must be replaced. 6) Boost : Recovers severely discharged batteries under high voltage charge. 7) Float : Battery is fully charged and ready to use. The battery is maintained at maximum level by applying low current charge. 8) Maintenance Charge : The charger continuously monitors the terminal voltage in order to determine if a maintenance charging should be initiated to keep battery fully charged. (i.e. When the charger is permanently connected).
