using the existing nut and bolt that holds the terminal in place. This is a
permanent connection and should be done with care. Always remove the
ground terminal first. Leave this terminal disconnected as you work with
the positive terminal. After the Terminal Lug has been installed on the
positive post then connect the negative. After connecting the wires turn on
the battery charger and monitor that the Power LED comes on. Next, watch
the Battery and Fault LEDs on the charger or maintainer. If connected
properly to a battery that is chargeable, the Battery LED will come on and
the Fault LED will not. If this does not happen there is either a problem
with reverse polarity, a non-chargeable battery, or a short circuit. Disconnect

WARNING - Good ventilation is advised. If you are working with a
battery that is still mounted on or in the vehicle make sure you place the
charger away from the battery itself. Do not expose the charger or
maintainer to rain, snow, or high heat. If used outside it should be in a dry
cool location. If the battery is removed from the vehicle, find a safe
ventilated non-flammable location such as a metal work bench. Never

Charger Maintainer Tester Rejuvenator Alarm Monitor
Tester Alarm Monitor Voltmeter
This product supports a variety of functions covered in other sections
of the manual. Mounting or locating a place for the charger is the first
thing to do. Please read the Warnings before using it. For basic use, first
find a AC outlet to plug it into, then choose the type of connection to the
battery and when connecting check that the Battery LED comes on and that
the Fault LED does not. This indicates that the charger has found a battery
and it thinks it can charge it. If the Fault LED comes on... check the polarity
of the wires... if they are correct then the battery is not capable of being
recharged. The Status LED flashes when charging is taking place and comes
on solid when the charger switches into maintenance and rejuvenation
mode. The Power LED indicates that AC Power is present. The LCD Display
switch turns on/off the LCD display but charging continues. The Load Tester
turns on/off the built-in load. This should be off unless discharging the battery or cycling of the battery is being preformed. Low Voltage Alarm monitors
the battery status.
The Tester can be used remotely or it can be mounted on a wall and
used in conjunction with most chargers and maintainers on the market. It
adds diagnostic capabilities to any companion charger or maintainer. As a
stand alone Voltmeter it can be used to diagnose the electrical system of a
vehicle or the charging system including the generator or alternator. It’s
Alarm monitoring capabilities allows it to be connected to any 12 volt
battery and monitor it’s condition. By simply installing this onto a battery
when the time comes to recharge the battery the Alarm will go off. This
happens when the voltage goes too low and before damage can occur to
the battery. The Load Tester allows unit to measure the capabilities of a
battery by putting a small load onto the battery plates and slowly
discharging the battery. This provides a way of slowly cycling a battery
from discharged to charged which can help to bring it back to life.

find a AC outlet to plug it into, then choose the type of connection to the
battery and when connecting check that the Battery LED comes on and that
the Fault LED does not. This indicates that the charger has found a battery

of the wires... if they are correct then the battery is not capable of being
recharged. The Status LED flashes when charging is taking place and comes
on solid when the charger switches into maintenance and conditioning
mode. The Power LED indicates that AC Power is present.
The Alligator Clip-on Cable connects directly to the battery post. It is
the most common way of connecting a battery charger to a battery for
temporary use. The only negative that this clip-on cable has is the fact that
it can be disconnected if the cable gets pulled our caught. It is not the best
approach for long term maintenance applications. Before connecting make
sure that the battery charger is plugged in and the Power LED is on. As you
connect to the terminals watch the Battery and Fault LEDs on the charger or
maintainer. If connected properly to a battery that is chargeable, the Battery
LED will come on and the Fault LED will not. If this does not happen there
is either a problem with reverse polarity, a non-chargeable battery, or a short
circuit. Disconnect the alligator chip-ons immediately.
We offer two lengths, both 6’ and 20’, additionally you can run up to
30’ total cable length on any of our systems so our extension cables can be
used to make the cable run longer if need be.
Make sure that battery terminals are clean and that the clip-on
connectors are making good contact and are firmly attached to the battery
posts.
