Switch on the power from the mains, the blue LED lights up indicating the charger is active and ready for use. STEP 2: CONNECTING THE BATTERIES TO THE CHARGER • Ensure that batteries are in good condition before charging them. DO NOT attempt to charge any battery that has sign of rust, chemical leakage or deposit on the terminals. These should be disposed of immediately to avoid subsequent damage to charger and/or electronic devices. o Although battery leakage found on some faulty, damaged or old batteries will typically not cause immediate damage to unprotected skin, it is best to avoid contact, or if contact occurs, immediately wash the exposed area with soap and water. 10 ENGLISH ENGLISH • Temperature protection via built-in cooling fan, AAA-Size 9V AA-Size C-Size STEP 3: OBSERVING THE CHARGERS STATUS. • LCD INDICATORS: Refer to page 4 for a full list of explanations of the essential indicators. • LED INDICATORS: Once batteries are firmly in contact with the chargers battery terminals, the charger’s indicator lights will be activated, showing the different status as follows: Channel 1 Power Channel 4 DC-OUT Channel 2 Channel 3 o o o o USB BLUE LIGHT ON – Power is ON and the charger is ready for use. GREEN LIGHT FLASHING – Battery is being charged. GREEN LIGHT ON – Charging is finished and battery is ready for use. GREEN LIGHT OFF – No battery present or improper battery connection 11 ENGLISH • Place used batteries to be charged into the charger slots according to their different sizes as follows and ensure all batteries are connected correctly to the charger. Pay attention to battery polarities. o AAA, AA, C, D and 9V batteries can be inserted into any of the four main slots. o When charging of “C” and “D” size high capacity batteries, the lid is designed to be left open which helps to cool the batteries being charged. STEP 4: INTERACTION WITH LCD CONTROL PANEL. o CHANNEL SELECT BUTTON - when pressed will move the focus point of the LCD screen from the left to the right channel in succession and the cycle repeats as follows: Æ CHANNEL 1 ð CHANNEL 2 ð CHANNEL 3 ð CHANNEL 4 Ê The selected channel shows the charging status and voltage condition of the battery in it under the STATUS heading. o DC-OUT SELECT BUTTON - when pressed the variable DC voltage output at the back of the charger changes from lowest to highest level in succession and the cycle repeats as follows: Æ 4.2V ð 6V ð 8.4V Ê The selected DC voltage output is regulated at a set level to match the required power input setting of the appropriate digital device being powered or charged. DC-OUT CHARGING FUNCTION The REZAP® PRO is equipped with a variable voltage, DC-OUT socket at the back of the charger. This socket outputs three different preset regulated voltage levels of 4.2V, 6V and 8.4V which can be selected by the DC-OUT select button, located on the control panel. Linking via a 1-IN, 6-OUT multiheaded DC-OUT cable (described in details on page 5), allows the charger to power a range of otherwise unpowered devices or charge up different battery packs in many self-powered devices. 12 ENGLISH o GREEN LIGHT TURNS OFF AFTER FLASHING – Battery is faulty, exhausted and or is no longer rechargeable. Prompt dispose of these batteries to avoid eventual battery leakage. o RED LIGHT ON – USB or DC-OUT ports on active mode when there are devices connected to these ports on the charger. o RED LIGHT OFF – No Devices connected to the USB or DC-OUT ports. • VOLTAGE SELECTION: Select 4.2V – to power devices accepting 3.0V – 4.5V input. Select 6V – to power devices accepting 5.0V – 6.5V input. Select 8.4V – to power devices accepting 7.0V – 9.0V input. CAUTION: • When the DC-OUT function is used to power or charge external digital devices, proceed with caution and ensure the selected voltage does match with the required input voltage of the device. Failure to do so may result in the damage of the device being powered. • In general most mobile phones and small sized digital devices are charged using DC-OUT voltages of 4.2 and or 6V whereas bigger sized devices such as portable DVDs, 2-Way Radios and Digital Video Cameras are charged using the 8.4V setting. • ALWAYS select DC-OUT voltage first and then plug in the device. Once a device is plugged in, the selected voltage will be locked in and further pressing of the DC-OUT button will have no effect. This feature ensures accidental change of the DC-OUT voltage will not happen. Further change in voltage can only be made by first unplugging the device and reselecting a different voltage. • DO NOT MODIFY OR WIRE the DC-OUT cable and try to connect it directly to any type of battery packs or cells. Such actions are dangerous. These batteries should only be charged within the devices from which they are used in. Batteries not supported (such as notebook/laptop battery packs) are outside the scope of this charger and should not be forcibly charged in this charger. 13 ENGLISH • DC-OUT DEFAULT VOLTAGE: o By default, the DC-OUT setting is initialised at the lowest level of 4.2V when the charger is first powered ON. The REZAP® PRO is also equipped with two high powered USB ports located at the back of the unit. By using standard USB cables that come with many digital devices at time of their purchase, the charger can power a range of otherwise unpowered devices or charge up different battery packs in many 5-volt, self-powered devices. DYNAMIC BATTERY TESTER FUNCTION The REZAP® PRO has a built-in dynamic battery tester function, which constantly monitors and measures the voltage conditions of all batteries being charged. This information is always there in the system and readily available on-demand, at a touch of a button will be displayed on the LCD screen. Notes: • Rechargeable and Alkaline batteries are rated at 1.2V and 1.5V respectively. FULL charge condition for NiCd and NiMH batteries only show a voltage reading between 1.34V to 1.44V whereas alkaline batteries show 1.5V or more. • Some exhausted and or faulty alkaline batteries often show a false voltage of up to 1.5V or higher when measured by means of a volt meter or the built-in tester function, however when these are put to use, they quickly die out. These batteries are considered no longer useful and should also be disposed of straight away to avoid eventual battery leakage. • During the charging of alkaline batteries, the charging voltage can rise up to 1.8V or higher. This is quite normal and should not be alarmed. Once the charging process is finished, the battery voltage will stablise and drop down to a lower level. 14 ENGLISH ENGLISH DUAL USB CHARGING FUNCTION • Charge only Alkaline, RAM (Rechargeable Alkaline Manganese), NiCd and NiMH batteries. DO NOT charge Carbon Zinc (such as those with no battery type printed on them or those labelled as SUPER HEAVY DUTY or GENERAL PURPOSE) or primary Lithium batteries (such as those used in cameras, 3V or 6V and labelled – LITHIUM) in this charger (Refer to Table 1 for details of various different battery types and how to recognize them). These unsupported battery types will be rejected or not properly charged if put into the charger. • Charge alkaline cells before they go completely flat. If the cells are discharged beyond the point of return (less than 0.9V), chances are that they will not be revived properly. Most electronic devices cut off at the 0.9 volt level; however devices such as torches, radios, clocks, remote controls or the like do have the tendency to drain the batteries completely. • Alkaline cells should be disposed of promptly if they are rejected by the charger (green light turns off after flashing) or their service life is very short after recharged. • After batteries are charged, only batteries that show the same voltage strength should be used together. For alkaline batteries, use those with voltage strength above 1.44V together and for rechargeable batteries, use those with voltage strength above 1.30V together. Mixing weak or partially charged with fully charged batteries will result in your device not functioning properly or not powering on at all. Also remember not to mix different battery types together (eg: Alkaline with rechargeable). • For best results, charged alkaline cells should be promptly removed within a few hours after charging is completed. Continuous connection to the metal plates (whether the charger is ON or OFF) for a prolonged period will shorten battery life. Recharged alkaline cells should be used as soon as possible as they are not suitable for long term storage due to their rapid self discharge. 15 ENGLISH IMPORTANT NOTES WHEN USING THE REZAP® PRO CHARGER: • The charger has four main slots with four corresponding green lights. Only put one battery per slot. Do not try to put one battery on top of another in a single slot. • 9V alkaline batteries are not charged using “individual cell” technique due to their internal structure (multiple cells linked together in series to give a higher battery voltage). Any fault or weakness amongst the cells can result in the battery being poorly recharged or not useable at times. Do not hold high expectation on these batteries. • 9V alkaline batteries when charged tend to expand slightly at their two ends. This is normal considering their outer case constructions are not made as strong as those of 9V rechargeable batteries. • Cycle life is based on the battery receiving proper care and also depends on the depth of discharge. In general, shallow discharges provide more cycles than deep discharges. CLEANING Turn the power off and unplug the power supply before cleaning of the charger. • The Plastic Body can be cleaned with a damp cloth and then wiped dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any abrasive or solvents on any plastic surface. • The battery compartment contacts can be cleaned using a piece of cloth or used toothbrush dampened with Methylated Spirits solvent (available from most hardware stores). Alternatively a clean pencil eraser can be used to rub off any dirt and or deposit that might adhere to them. 16 ENGLISH • Different brands of alkaline cells may give different results, depending on the chemical composition used in making the batteries. Do not be surprised to find that some top brand alkaline cells may yield fewer cycle lives than less well-known brands. Try different brands of batteries and decide for yourself the brands that work best in your applications and in the REZAP® PRO charger. EXTENDING BATTERY LIFE • Keep extra batteries around for your convenience. Store batteries in a dry place at normal room temperature. • When storing battery-powered devices for long periods (i.e., more than a month), remove the batteries. This can prevent damage to the device from possible battery leakage. Also, the batteries can be used for other applications while the batteries are still "fresh". Batteries should also be removed from equipment while it is being powered by household (AC) current. • When using single-cell rechargeable NiCd batteries, be sure to discharge the cell completely before recharging it, thus counteracting the "memory" effect. • Do not use batteries in high-temperature situations (unless the battery is designed for that temperature range). Store batteries as far away from heat sources as possible. The electrical potential of the battery will degrade rapidly if it is exposed to temperatures higher than those recommended by the manufacturer. • Follow instructions on your equipment regarding proper insertion of batteries, making sure that the (+) and (-) terminals are aligned correctly. • Remove worn-out batteries from equipment immediately to prevent possible damage from battery leakage. Always replace all batteries at the same time. Mixing old and new batteries or mixing types (such as alkaline with Carbon Zinc) will reduce overall performance and could cause leakage or rupture. 17 ENGLISH • When storing batteries, remove any load or short circuit from their terminals. GENERAL BATTERY SAFETY TIPS • Do not short-circuit a battery. A short-circuit may cause severe damage to the battery. • Do not incinerate, expose the battery to moisture, rain or sources of extreme heat. • Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. The metallic components of the battery will not burn and the burning electrolyte may splatter, explode, or release toxic fumes. • Do not store batteries loosely or carry them loose in your pocket or purse. They can be shorted by contact with metal objects and leak or rupture. • Do not let young children play with batteries, especially button and or 9V cells; these could accidentally be swallowed or licked at and may result in burns that may range from simply uncomfortable to serious. • Do not allow direct body contact with battery chemicals. Acidic or alkaline electrolyte can cause skin irritation or burns. If acidic or alkaline electrolyte contacts skin or clothing, wash immediately with soap and water. If it enters the eye, immediately flood the eye with cold running water for at least fifteen (15) minutes and seek medical help immediately. • Make it a habbit to wash hands straight after handling batteries, especially used ones as they may have developed a thin film of acidic or alkaline electrolyte around them.
