Instruction Leaflet
Professional Broadcast Equipment
This leaflet contains important safety and operating instructions.
Please read these fully and note all warnings before using the charger.
Please follow all instructions and retain this leaflet for future reference.
PAG V2 chargers are not intended for any use other than the charging of
batteries as detailed in 'Specification'.
IMPORTANT: Use only on AC supplies 100-250V, 50/60Hz.
Supply connection to the unit should be made using only the standard
lead supplied with this equipment.
Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched, particularly at
plugs. Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when unused for
long periods of time.
Ensure that the ventilation slots are not obstructed when in use, e.g. do
not site the charger on a deep pile carpet, or use it in the inverted
position and ensure nothing covers the charger when it is in use.
WARNING: Indoor use only. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do
not expose this apparatus to rain or moisture.
Although the charger is reverse polarity and short circuit protected,
extreme care should always be taken not to short circuit the battery itself.
Rechargeable batteries can deliver power at a very high rate, and short
circuiting even a partially charged battery could result in a fire or personal
injury. PAG supplies a range of connector leads for most charging
requirements, and does not accept responsibility for any other form
of charging connection.
Do not disassemble the charger. There are no user-serviceable parts inside.
Incorrect re-assembly may result in a safety hazard.
Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is required
when the apparatus has been damaged in any way, such as the supply cord
or plug, when liquid has been spilled, the apparatus has been exposed to
rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has been dropped. In this
event you should seek advice from your nearest PAG Dealer, or direct from
PAG Ltd., London, by telephoning +44 (0)20 8543 3131.

Operating Instructions
IMPORTANT: Note Section 4.10, Supply Failure. PAG V2 Chargers may be
disconnected from the supply at any time in complete safety and without
damage to the charger or any batteries connected.
Connect the charger to a suitable supply using the standard lead. The blue
mains LED will illuminate.
On power-up the charger will automatically run a self test program and
then the Recovery Charge program. Any batteries that are connected to the
charger but which do not require the Recovery Charge program will be
charged as normal.
With no batteries connected, battery status indicators will not be lit
('absent' indication).
The first battery to be connected, irrespective of the channel chosen, will
be the first battery to be charged.
Charging will automatically commence and the battery status indicator will
blink YELLOW ('charging' indication) to show that the charging program is
being executed. The battery status indicator will light RED ('waiting'
indication) on the other channel if it has a battery connected.
When a Lithium-Ion battery has been charged to approximately 80%, the
charge current is reduced and the status indicator will blink YELLOW and
GREEN alternately. At this stage, the battery can be removed if it is
required urgently, or it can be left to charge fully. NOTE: the final 20% of
charge may require as much time as the first 80%, due to the fact that a
Lithium-Ion battery must receive a reduced charge rate during the final
The battery status indicator will light GREEN ('ready' indication) when a
battery has received as much charge as it can safely accept.
The charger will now select the battery connected to the other channel,
and the charging process will be repeated.
Qualified electronics engineers who wish to gain access to internal
assemblies should note that parts of the power circuit retain a high
voltage even after the mains supply has been disconnected. Wait for a
period of five minutes following disconnection before commencing
disassembly and be aware of charged capacitors.
When the charger is correctly connected to a mains supply and the display
is not functioning, it may be that a supply fuse has become open circuit.
Equipment supplied for use in the UK is supplied with a standard UK mains
cordset, complete with a moulded, fused plug. If this fuse has become
open circuit it should be replaced by another of the correct rating (see
If the replacement of the fuse fails to correct the above symptoms, do not
attempt further fuse replacement. It is likely that a fault has developed.

PAG V2 Chargers feature a fail-safe shutdown mode. In the unlikely
event of an internal malfunction, the battery status indicators will cycle
with a continuous colour change and the blue mains indicator will blink a
number of times to show that the charger is in shutdown mode. This could
be the result of any number of undesirable situations from which the
system is protecting itself, such as the obstruction of ventilation slots
causing inadequate cooling, or the microcomputer's detection of an
internal fault. In these cases the charger should be disconnected from the
supply, any obstruction of the air vent system removed, and the unit
allowed to cool before reconnecting to the supply. Should the charger reenter the fail-safe shutdown mode, more detailed investigation is required.
The mains indicator will blink a number of times (the pattern is repeated
continuously). Make a note of the number of blinks in the sequence (the
'error message'), and seek advice from your nearest PAG dealer or direct
from PAG Ltd., London.
If the blue mains indicator flashes on/off rapidly (twice per second) but
the battery status indicators are functioning normally and the charger
appears to be operating correctly in every other respect, then it is likely
that the charger requires re-calibrating. In this event it should be serviced
by your nearest PAG dealer or by PAG Ltd., London.
Unqualified personnel should not attempt further investigation (see paragraph 5.1). Any such interference would invalidate the guarantee and
invariably cause more damage than the original fault.
4.10 Batteries may be removed, and others connected at any time, without
affecting the operation of the charger.
4.11 The charger will continue to monitor the status of both charging channels.
It will not attempt to charge batteries which are ready or faulty. If a
battery is now disconnected, the battery status will revert to the absent
state. If a new battery is connected to the free channel, the status will
change to waiting and the charging sequence will be initiated
automatically. The order in which batteries are connected is therefore
immaterial; the charger will ensure that both batteries are charged in due
4.12 If the charger detects a severely faulty battery while the charging program
is running, the battery status indicator will flash RED (‘faulty’ indication).
This could be caused by one of several conditions, such as a very old or
damaged battery, a short circuit battery, or an excessively high or low
voltage battery.
Notwithstanding any provision of any agreement the following Warranty is
exclusive: PAG Limited warrants each V2 Charger it manufactures to be free
of defects in material and workmanship under use and service for TWO
YEARS from the date of purchase. This warranty extends only to the
original purchaser. This warranty shall not apply to fuses or any product
or parts which have been subject to misuse, neglect, accident or abnormal
conditions of operation.
In the event of failure of a product covered by this warranty, PAG Limited
will repair and calibrate equipment returned to an authorised Service
Facility within the period of the warranty, provided the warrantor's
examination discloses to its satisfaction the product was defective.
The warrantor may, at its option, replace the product in lieu of repair.
With regard to any equipment returned within this period, said repairs or
replacements will be made without charge. If the failure has been caused
by misuse, neglect, accident or abnormal conditions of operation, repairs
will be billed at a nominal cost. In such a case, an estimate will be
submitted before work is started, if requested.
The foregoing Warranty is in lieu of all other warranties, express or
implied, including but not limited to any implied warranty or
merchantability, fitness or adequacy for any particular purpose or use.
PAG Limited shall not be liable for any special, incidental, or consequential
damages, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise.
4.13 The charger will not recognise the connection of a battery which has a
voltage substantially outside of its range.
4.14 If the internal protection circuit of a PAG Li-Ion battery should turn off
for any reason, the battery display will not operate, and there will be no
voltage at the battery terminals. The PAG V2 incorporates a Recovery
Charge program which will automatically turn the protection circuit back
on again.
4.15 If the charger should become too hot during use the microcomputer will
shut the charger down to a safe condition and this will be shown by the
battery status indicators cycling with a continuous colour change (see
Section 5.4 ‘Servicing and Repairs’ below).
4.16 If the AC mains power fails during operation, the charger will shut down
safely; no damage will occur to either the charger or the batteries. When
the mains power is restored the charger will default to the main charge
