10 AMP ON BOARD BATTERY CHARGER
Two Outputs
OWNER’S MANUAL
Connections at a glance:
For the best charging results both 12 Volt independent batteries should be equally
discharged. The charger will supply 5 Amps to each battery output for a total of 10
Amps. When unequally discharged batteries are connected to the outputs, the charger
will automatically steer more current to the battery that needs it. We recommend that
you make the connections in the following order:
1. Charger POS (red wire with fuse) to battery “ + “.
2. Charger NEG (black wire) to battery “ - ".
3. Plug AC line cord into a GFCI protected wall socket.
4. Remove connections in the reverse order.

1. INTRODUCING THE CHARGER
The GUEST ChargePro 2611 is designed to both recharge your batteries, and extend
your battery’s life in applications where it is stored for long periods of time. The 2611 is
a “3-stage” electronic battery charger with two independent outputs. Rainproof,
lightweight, silent, and completely automatic, it produces 12 Volts DC at a full 10 Amps,
while using much less AC current than older chargers. Unlike automotive “trickle”
chargers, the 2611 will not boil off the electrolytes in lead-acid batteries when left
unattended. When the 2611 is attached to your batteries and plugged into a standard
115 Volt / 60 Hz AC outlet, the red and green LED’s let you know the unit is recharging
and maintaining your batteries. This sophisticated device is ideal for recharging and
maintaining the 12VDC batteries in your boat, electric vehicle or cart, ATV, snowmobile
or motorcycle.
2. IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
This manual contains important safety and operating instructions for the charger. Read
the entire manual before using. Also read all instructions and cautions for and on the
charger, batteries and equipment in the vicinity of the batteries.
WARNINGS
THIS CHARGER SHOULD BE USED TO CHARGE ONLY SINGLE OR DUAL 12
VOLT DC LEAD ACID OR GEL CELL TYPE BATTERIES. USE ON OTHER THAN A
12 VDC (OR 24 VDC) SYSTEM CAN CAUSE THE BATTERIES TO EXPLODE AND
CAUSE PERSONAL INJURY.
RISK OF EXPLOSIVE GASES! WORKING IN THE VICINITY OF LEAD ACID
BATTERIES IS DANGEROUS. BATTERIES GENERATE EXPLOSIVE GASES
DURING NORMAL OPERATION. THEREFORE IT IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE
THAT EACH TIME BEFORE USING YOUR CHARGER YOU FOLLOW THE
INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY.
Personal Safety Precautions
Adhere to the following personal safety precautions when installing or working with the
chargers:
1. Someone should be within voice range or close enough to come to your aid when
you work near a lead-acid battery.
2. Have plenty of fresh water and soap nearby in case battery acid contacts skin,
clothing, or eyes.
2
3. Wear complete eye protection and clothing protection. Avoid touching eyes while
working near a battery.
4. If battery acid contacts skin or clothing, wash them immediately with soap and water.
If acid enters the eye, flood the eye with cold, running water for at least ten minutes
and get medical attention.
5. Never smoke or allow an open flame in the vicinity of the battery.
6. Do not drop a metal tool onto the battery. It may spark, short circuit the battery and
may cause an explosion.
7. Remove all personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and watches
when working near a lead-acid battery. A battery can produce short circuit currents
high enough to weld a ring or the like to metal, causing a severe burn.
Preparing to Charge Precautions
Before charging a battery with the charger, read the following precautions:
1. Do NOT operate the charger if the cables, or an LED, are damaged.
2. Make sure all accessories on the product you are charging are OFF.
3. If the battery or batteries must be removed from the product, always remove the
grounded terminal from the battery first.
4. Be sure the area around the battery is well ventilated while the battery is being
charged. Gas can be forcefully blown away using a piece of cardboard or other nonmetallic material as a “hand fan”.
5. Clean battery terminals. Be careful to keep corrosion from coming in contact with
eyes.
6. Add distilled water in each cell until battery acid reaches levels specified by the
battery manufacturer. Do not overfill. For a battery without cell caps, carefully follow
the manufacturer’s recharging instructions.
7. Never allow the ring terminals to touch each other.
8. NEVER charge a frozen battery.
Grounding Precaution
DANGER
Do not operate this charger with a two bladed adapter plug. Doing so can result
in serious personal injury.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of shock, connect only to a properly grounded outlet.

3. INSTALLING THE CHARGER
Choosing Charging Location
The charger should have at least eight inches of unobstructed area on all sides of the
unit for effective cooling. The case of this charger will become warm during operation.
Do not install the charger on carpeted, upholstered, or varnished surfaces.
Mounting the Charger
1. Use corrosion resistant #10 dia. bolts, backed by a flat washer, and secured to the
mounting surface with a split-ring lock washer.
2. Hold the charger to the mounting surface and mark the holes.
3. Remove the charger and drill the mounting holes.
4. Align the charger and assemble the mounting hardware. Secure.
Making DC and AC Connections
This battery charger is ideal for installations using one 12 Volt lead-acid or gel-cell
battery or two independent 12 Volt lead-acid or gel-cell batteries connected in 12 or 24
VDC systems. Some of the most popular configurations are shown below:
#1
#1
One 12 Volt battery or two 12 Volt
batteries connected in parallel: Join the
two black NEGATIVE wires to the
battery “ – “. Join the two red
POSITIVE wires to the battery “ + ”.
#2
Two 12 Volt batteries connected in
series as a 24 Volt DC system: Attach
the red POSITIVE output wires to each
battery “+“.
Attach the black
NEGATIVE output wires to each
battery “ – “. Refer to the picture to the
left.
#2
To Trolling
Motor
#1
#2
24 Volt POSITIVE
24 Volt NEGATIVE
Check polarity of the battery posts. The POSITIVE (POS., P, +) battery post usually
has a larger diameter than the NEGATIVE (NEG., N, -) post.
Refer to the pictures shown above for different configurations. After securing the
battery connections, plug the AC line cord into an available AC outlet that is protected
by a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) breaker.

4. OPERATING THE CHARGER
The LED Function Chart below describes the charging process.
Display
Operating condition
When the red LED is on, it indicates that your batteries are
discharged and the 2611 is recharging them at the "BULK" rate
(stage 1). This charging rate is 10 Amps.
While the red LED is on, the voltage measured (with the charger on)
will be approx. 11.5 to 13.2 Volts.
If the red LED stays on for more than 24 hours, refer to Problem 1 in
the troubleshooting section in this manual.
Red
Green
When both the green and the red LED’s are on, the 2611 is charging
at an "ABSORPTION" rate of between 3 and 9 Amps (stage 2). This
mode of charging gradually "tops off" your batteries, and reduces
harmful sulfating. While both LED’s are on, the voltage measured
(with the charger on) should be approx. 13.2 to 14.3VDC.
If both lights stay on longer than 24 hours, refer to Problem 2 in the
troubleshooting section in this manual.
Red
Green
When the green LED is on, the 2611 is charging at a "FLOAT” or
“MAINTENANCE" rate of less than 3 Amps, (stage 3). Your batteries
are now 90% charged and ready for use. This "float" charging
current will gradually decrease to as low as 0.1 Amps as the
batteries reaches 100% charge. They will now be kept at full charge
without over-charging.
If the green LED stays on when your battery is known to be low,
refer to Problem 3 in the troubleshooting section in this manual.
