The AC/DC-6, 3 & LC Universal
Rapid Chargers are quadchemistry “intelligent” charger
units for two-way portable radio
batteries. Your new charger
can be used with either the AC
110/240V wall plug or the DC
vehicle cigarette lighter cable
(optional on LC model).
The AC/DC-6, 3 & LC utilize a self switching
power supply unit for international use. Simply
insert the cable type for your area or use a
plug adapter and the unit can be used in any
The Universal feature of the AC/DC-6, 3 & LC
allows the user to charge six, or three different
model radios/batteries at the same time. A
wide selection of cups are available for most
new and discontinued radio models.

Mounting Brackets (AC/DC-6, AC/DC-3 only)
Optional vehicle mounting kits
are available. The kit includes
a mounting bracket and bungy
cord restraint straps to secure
the radios while in transit. The
quick release feature allows the
user to remove the charger unit
without the use of any tools in
the event they want to use it in
AC mode or move it between
Quick release wall mount
brackets for the AC/DC-6
& 3 chargers are also
available. The heavy duty
coated steel bracket is easily
mounted on the wall using
the included hardware. The
design allows the user to
easily mount or remove the
AC/DC-6 & 3 charger from
the bracket by inserting or
removing the rubber stopper
strip. This feature allows the
user to quickly remove the
charger for use in DC mode
when necessary. Perfect for
public safety, security, film
production etc.

PLEASE read carefully before using your charger
The single metal pin inside the bottom of
each charger bay is designed to detect
Li-Ion and Li-Po battery chemistries and
apply the correct charging algorithm
to avoid any overheating issues. It is
therefore necessary to ensure that the
four sensor pin contact holes are always
exposed when charging Li-Ion batteries. When charging NiMh or
NiCd chemistry batteries, please cover the access holes with the
supplied adhesive strip or electrical tape to ensure maximum
charging performance.
Your charger is factory set for charging Li chemistry battery

1) Your IMPACT™ charger should come with the adapter cups
installed. If the cups are not installed or you are changing
the cups, please refer to instructions on pg 4 then simply
insert the cups into each charger bay making sure to line
up the four silver contact points on the bottom of the cup
with the four metal contacts on the base of the charger bay.
Secure each cup with the Phillips screw provided. DO NOT
USE POWER TOOLS. Hand tighten the screw using a Phillips
screw driver to ensure the cup fits firmly into the charger
2) Insert the AC power cable into the power cable port or the
DC cigarette cable into the DC port.
3) Plug the power cable into the wall socket or the DC cable into
the vehicle cigarette lighter socket.
4) Turn on the charger with the ON/OFF power switch.
5) The unit will perform a self diagnosis indicated by all six RED
LED lights flashing once.
6) Insert a battery, or radio with battery attached, into the
charger cup.
7) The red LED light will illuminate indicating the charge cycle
has begun. The red light will stay illuminated until the
charge cycle is complete at which point the green LED light
will illuminate indicating that the battery is fully charged.
8) Remove the battery/radio for use.

Troubleshooting Tips
“The charger does not power up when plugged in.”
Ensure that the power switch is turned on; unscrew fuse
holder and check fuse. Replace with the same 15amp fuse if
necessary, check that power cables are inserted firmly into cable
ports and that the power to the wall plug is on.
“LED light is flashing red.”
This indicates a fault with the battery. Check the bay using
another battery. If the bay operates correctly, the battery is not
charging sufficiently and will need to be replaced.
“LED stays red then goes green then off.”
Some Li-Ion batteries have internal protection breakers that
send a message to the charger to turn off when the battery
is fully charged. The battery will be charged and ready for
use. If the battery is left in the unit for an extended period,
the charge level of the battery will decrease and the charger
will begin charging automatically. To restart charging cycle,
attach battery to radio, power radio for minimum of 5 minutes
and then reinsert battery. The charge cycle will begin charging
“One (or more) bay(s) is not working, the LED lights are
not illuminating at all.”
To determine if the fault is in the charger or just the cup,
remove the cup from the non-working bay and swap it with
a cup in a bay that is working correctly. If the same bay LED
is still not illuminating then the processor for that bay may
be faulty. If the faulty bay has moved to the bay that was
previously working, the cup is possibly defective. Contact your
authorized IMPACT™ dealer for assistance.
“My Motorola CP 150/200 battery does not fit in the
MOT-11 cup.”
There is a built in spacer in the floor of the cup. Carefully
remove the spacer by pulling the edges away from the side walls
of the cup. Turn the spacer around 180 degrees and re-insert.
