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.
