POWER SUPPLY
CONNECTING YOUR MACHINE TO THE POWER SUPPLY: (230V ONLY)
To eliminate the possibility of an electric shock your machine has been fitted with a BS
approved, non rewireable moulded plug and cable which incorporates a fuse, the value
of which is indicated on the pin face of the plug. If the plug is marked with the
symbol and the fuse needs replacing, an
approved BS1362 fuse must be used of
the same amp rating. If the plug is not
marked, a fuse with the
symbol,
BS Kitemark, or both
and
BS Kitemark, of the same amp rating should be used.
The fuse cover is detachable, never use the plug with the cover omitted. If a replacement
fuse cover is required, ensure it is the same colour as that visible on the pin face of the
plug (i.e. red). Fuse covers are available from your Draper Tools stockist.
If the fitted plug is not suitable, it should be cut off and destroyed. *The end of the cable
should now be suitably prepared and the correct type of plug fitted. See below.
*WARNING:
A plug with bare flexible wires exposed is hazardous if engaged in a live power socket
outlet.
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED.
The mains lead is coloured Green and Yellow - Earth, Blue – Neutral and Brown – Live.
As these colours may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the
terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured green and yellow must be connected to the terminal in your
plug marked with the letter ‘E’ or by the earth symbol
or coloured green or green
and yellow.
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with
the letter ‘N’ or coloured black or blue.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked
with the letter ‘L’ or coloured red or brown.
EXTENSION LEAD CHART:
Extension lead sizes shown assure a voltage drop of not more than 5% at rated load of

“lead-acid, lead-calcium and gel
filled batteries only”. Do not use for
charging dry-cell or Ni-Cad batteries
that are commonly used with home
appliances. For example, radios,
torches etc. These batteries may
explode and cause injury to persons
and damage to property.
2. PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS:
a. When working near a lead-acid
battery, someone should be within
range of your voice, close enough to
come to your aid.
i. NEVER charge or boost and frozen
battery.
j.
b. Have plenty of fresh water and soap
nearby in case battery acid contacts
skin, clothing or eyes.
NEVER allow clamps to touch one
another or to contact the same piece
of metal to prevent arcing.
3. OTHER IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS:
c. Wear complete eye, hand and
clothing protection. Avoid touching
eyes when working with batteries.
a. Do not use the charger in damp or
wet conditions.
d. If battery acid contacts skin or
clothing, wash immediately with soap
and water. If acid enters eyes,
immediately flood eye with cool,
clean running water for at least 15
minutes and get medical attention
immediately.
e. NEVER smoke or allow a spark or
flame in vicinity of battery or engine.
-4-
b. Keep out of reach of children.
c. Do not submerge in water.
d. Do not operate near flammables such
as petrol, paraffin, or thinners etc.
e. If the charger receives a sharp blow
or is otherwise damaged in any way,
do not disassemble. Have it checked
by a qualified service person. Return
to source.
SAFETY FEATURES
This battery chargers is fitted with the following safety features:
1. Polarity inversion protection.
2. Short circuit overload protection.
3. Thermal overload protection.
Explanation of Symbols Featured on Rating Label:
This is an indication that the machine is fitted with automatic overload protection.
NOTE:
After an extended period of charging especially in the "fast" charge mode, the thermal
cut-out protection may be activated. This is to allow the charger a sufficient amount of
time to cool down. Once the charger has sufficiently cooled, then charging will
recommence automatically.

BEFORE CHARGING YOUR BATTERY:
NOTE: We recommend that the battery is disconnected from the vehicle. This will avoid
any possible damage to the alternator. Loss of codes for audio and security systems can
be avoided by connecting a Draper Memory Saver (Part No.CMS1 - Stock No.38330) or
similar product before disconnecting the battery. Check the car battery voltage matches
that of the charger's capability.
Before connecting the battery charger to the battery ensure that the charger and battery
are on a level surface. If the battery has cell filled caps loosen and remove them to assist
the escape of charging gases. (If the battery being charged is a maintenance free, gel
filled or sealed battery, refer to the appropriate section below). Once the cell caps have
been removed, check the level of the electrolyte and top up if necessary.
MAINTENANCE FREE BATTERIES:
(Low Maintenance Batteries)
These batteries often have cells with no filler caps and therefore cannot be topped up
with distilled water.
GEL FILLED AND OTHER SEALED BATTERIES:
This type of battery normally contains gel electrolyte and may be referred to as "Dry
Fit". They are most commonly used in applications such as, electric golf trolley's,
mobility wheelchairs, camping, caravanning and marine activities etc. To charge this
type of battery, requires a charger fitted with a temperature sensor compensation which
allows continuous adjustment of the unsupervised charge to avoid overcharging and loss
of electrolyte by 'gassing' which can shorten the life of the battery.

OPERATION AND USE
It is recommended to remove the
battery from the vehicle. With the
machine disconnected from the power
supply, connect the positive red clamp
(+) to the positive terminal of the battery
and connect the negative black clamp
(-) to the negative/earth terminal of the
battery.
CONNECTING (FIG.1.):
Connect the battery charger to the
power supply, and press switch (A) into
the 'I - ON' position.
The display (B) will show the battery
voltage e.g. U07 would be 7 volts. It will

OPERATION AND USE
BATTERY CAPACITY SELECTION (FIG.3.):
Rotate dial (G) until the batteries Ah (amp
hour) rating is displayed (30 - 200Ah). The Ah
rating is usually marked on the battery by the
voltage information. Once set the charger will
input the appropriate current into the battery
according to it's size/capacity.
NOTE:
On all maintenance type batteries, remove the
filler caps and adjust the levels before
commencing charging. Failure to remove the
caps could lead to a build up of the explosive
gases which are released during charging.
Stand the battery on a suitable surface, in a
well ventilated area.
After the charge cycle is complete the display
will read 'END'. When this point is reached and
if the charger is left connected the buffer
function will monitor the voltage and if
necessary recommence a trickle charge to
keep the battery at the optimum level. During Fig.3.
the charge period, occasionally check the
battery condition is good. When charging is
complete, press the switch to the '0 - Off'
position. Disconnect the charger leads and
refit the battery as appropriate.
NOTE:
Ensure the maintenance caps (if applicable)
are replaced and tight.
THERMAL OVERLOAD PROTECTION
Fig.4.
(FIG.4.):
The thermal overload protection will activate
if a problem is detected to prevent the unit
overheating. When 'H00' is displayed the
charge current will stop until the unit has
cooled down.

OPERATION AND USE
NOTE:
If the charger is accidentally operated when
not connected to a battery, power to the leads
is denied to prevent sparking or short circuit.
FUSE (FIG.5.):
As an additional protection method the unit is
fitted with 30 amp blade fuse. If a problem is
encountered the fuse will blow to avoid
damage to the charger or battery. Fuse (H)
is a spare.
