◎ SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
1. Do not attempt to charge incompatible types of rechargeable batteries. This charger is
designed to only charge and discharge Nickel Cadmium, Nickel Metal Hydride, Lithium
Ion, Lithium Polymer, and Lead Acid batteries.
2. Do not attempt to charge a dead or damaged battery.
3. 12V input from Pb battery or reliable 12V power supplier that can supply more than 7A
current is needed
4. Make sure to place the charger on a firm level surface for charging.
5.Do not attempt to charge batteries at excessive fast charge currents. Check with your
battery manufacturer for the maximum charge rate applicable to your battery.
6. Do not allow water, moisture or foreign objects into the charger and use in a well ventilated area
7.Do not place the battery or charger on or near a flammable object while in use. Keep
away from carpets, cluttered workbenches, etc.
8. Do not leave the charger unattended while charging. Disconnect the battery and
remove input power from charger immediately if the charger becomes hot and keep
the charger and battery cool down before reconnecting. Young children should be
supervised to ensure that they use the appliance safely
9. Do not disassemble the charger.
10. If lead-acid battery is used to charge battery, the battery terminal shouldn’t be con
tacted to the chassis
11. Do not use automotive type battery chargers to power the charger.
12. Do not cover the air intake holes on the charger as this could cause the charger to
overheat.
13. Connect the input leads to a 12V power supply first, then connect the battery.
14. Do not attempt to charge non-rechargeable batteries.
15. Please comply with LiIon, LiPo, LiFe safety before charging
16. Do not use the damaged AC Power cord.

1. Connect charger to 12V DC power supply
2. Connect the charge cable to OUT PUT terminal in the charger and battery, you need
to double check the polarity( Red +, Black - ) and the input voltage. If the input voltage
is below 11V or above 15V, the charger will show “BATTERY VOLTAGE ERROR” message.

◎ BATTERY CHARGE TIME CALCULATION
If you know the battery capacity, you may estimate charge time approximately
Charge time (minute) = [ Capacity (Ah) / Charge current (A) ] x 60
Ex) If 7.2V 2000mAh NiCd battery is charged with 3.0V, charge time is (2.0/3.0)x60, approx 40 minutes It is just for your reference, not the correct time
17
◎ NEW BATTERY CHARGE
When the new NiCd/ NiMH are charged at the first time, charge process might be terminated within minutes, it is not because charger or battery have a problem, but because
battery is not stabilized yet. In this case, you need to charge battery after increasing the
delta peak value or to charge battery after discharging and cooling down battery.
Do not use the battery, if the charged capacity of battery exceeds battery capacity in
specification. If such a phenomenon arises, repeat to charge and discharge more over 5
times and charge again. Such a phenomenon might arise till the third time charge.
◎ Pb BATTERY SAFETY
Pb battery needs to be charged every day. If the charged capacity of battery is dropped
below 50%, this battery might not be recharged. The average charge time of Pb battery
is 4~5 hours. Do not charge Car battery, the charger might get the serious damage
◎ LiIon, LiPo, LiFe BATTREIES SAFETY
1. Always charge the batteries that have Lithium ion or Lithium polymer mark and do not charge
the batteries that have Lithium mark. Failure to do so will damage the batteries and may
cause fire or personal injury.
2. Always charge the batteries that the cell voltage ( 3.3V / 3.6V / 3.7V ) is written
3. E
nsure that the charger and battery are placed on a non-flammable surface whilst charging.
4. N
ever charge Lithium ion/Polymer/Fe batteries inside a vehicle whatever the circumstances.
5. Always ensure that the charger is correctly set for the battery being charged, checking both
voltage and capacity. Be particularly careful if using a series/parallel battery pack, or if using
packs of different specifications with the same charger.
6. N
ever charge at a rate higher than that recommended by the cell manufacturer, this can be
very dangerous.
7. D
o not leave Lithium ion/Polymer/Fe batteries unattended whilst they are charging. Monitoring the batteries during charging is very important.
8. Always monitor the temperature of the battery being charged every few minutes. If the battery
becomes hot to the touch, disconnect it from the charger immediately and allow to cool. Do
not recommence charging until the battery and charger have been checked for compatibility
and the charger settings have been confirmed as being correct.
9. In the unlikely event of the Lithium ion/Polymer/Fe battery catching fire DO NOT use water to
attempt to put the fire out, instead use sand or a fire extinguisher designed for electrical fires.
10. W
hen used correctly, Lithium ion/Polymer/Fe battery packs are as safe as any other type of
rechargeable battery pack. However they do require different charge regimes to the longer
established Nickel Cadmium and Nickel Metal Hydride technologies and have the potential
of catching fire if severely mistreated.
11. If Lithium Polymer battery packs are short-circuited or severely over-charged elemental Lithium may be deposited internally, and if the battery pouch is damaged this can escape from
inside the battery. If this occurs a fire may be caused, as elemental Lithium is highly reactive
when exposed to water or moisture, producing flammable hydrogen gas and corrosive
fumes. Elemental Lithium is not produced unless the battery pack is severely mistreated, so
in normal usage there is no likelihood of explosion or fire.
12. L
ithium Ion/Polymer battery packs must NEVER be discharged below 3 volts per cell (LiFe
2.0V) as this will result in damage to the cells. If the voltage is allowed to drop below 3 volts
per cell the battery voltage may seem to recover following a charge, but the battery may
not then give its full nominal capacity and a reduction in performance is likely - allowing the
voltage to drop below 3 volts per cell will invalidate all warranty claims.
18
13. Never charge Lithium Polymer battery packs at greater than 4.2V per cell, Lithium Ion
at 4.1V volts per cell or LiFe at greater than 3.7V per cell as this will cause irreversible
damage to the cells and will invalidate all warranty claims.
14. Never charge Lithium battery packs above their maximum charge rate. This can damage the pack and can be dangerous. Generally, Lithium Polymer packs should not be
charged above 2C (2 x Capacity). However, some newer packs do allow charging at up
to 5C, but charging at these higher rates will reduce the life of the pack.
e.g Pack of 2500mAh capacity : 2C = 5000mAh = 5A max charge current.
15. Do not use discharge rates in excess of those specified with the battery pack as this
will result in a significant drop in voltage under load and will dramatically reduce the
number of charge/discharge cycles the battery pack will give. If disposing of Lithium
battery packs ensure that the pack is fully discharged by using a light bulb, electric
motor or similar to completely discharge the pack.
Do not allow any Lithium battery pack to short-circuit as this is
likely to result in a minor explosion and consequent fire.
16. Before charging any Lithium battery packs they should be closely inspected for any
damage, such as punctures in the sleeving or if the battery has swollen or expanded
in size. If any such damage is detected Do not charge, even if the battery otherwise
appears to be brand new.
17. Before commencing charging always double check the settings on the charger to
ensure it is set correctly for the battery pack to be charged. Using the wrong settings
is likely to result in damage to the battery pack being charged and could result in the
battery catching fire.
