PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS
1. Working in the vicinity of a lead-acid battery is
dangerous. Batteries generate explosive gases
during normal battery operation. For this reason,
it is of utmost importance that you follow the
instructions each time you use the charger.
2. To reduce the risk of a battery explosion, follow
these instructions and those published by the
battery manufacturer and the manufacturer of any
equipment you intend to use in the vicinity of the
battery. Review the cautionary markings on these
products and on the engine.
3. NEVER smoke or allow a spark or flame in the
vicinity of a battery or engine.
4. Be extra cautious to reduce the risk of dropping a
metal tool onto the battery. It might spark or shortcircuit the battery or other electrical part that may
cause an explosion.
5. Use this charger for charging LEAD-ACID batteries
only. It is not intended to supply power to a low
voltage electrical system other than in a startermotor application. Do not use this battery charger
for charging dry-cell batteries that are commonly
used with home appliances. These batteries may
burst and cause injury to persons and damage to
property.
6. NEVER charge a frozen battery.
7. NEVER overcharge a battery.
PREPARING TO CHARGE
1. Consider having someone close enough by 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 your skin, clothing or eyes.
3. Wear complete eye and body protection, including
safety goggles and protective clothing. Avoid
touching your eyes while working near the battery.
4. If battery acid contacts your skin or clothing,
immediately wash the area with soap and water.
If acid enters your eye, immediately flood the eye
with cold running water for at least 10 minutes
and get medical attention right away.
5. If battery acid is accidentally swallowed, drink
milk, the whites of eggs or water. DO NOT induce
vomiting. Seek medical attention immediately.
6. If it is necessary to remove the battery from the
vehicle to charge it, always remove the grounded
terminal first. Make sure all of the accessories in
the vehicle are off to prevent arcing.
7. Be sure the area around the battery is well
ventilated while the battery is being charged.
8. Clean the battery terminals before charging the
battery. During cleaning, keep airborne corrosion
from coming into contact with your eyes, nose and
mouth. Use baking soda and water to neutralize
the battery acid and help eliminate airborne
corrosion. Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
9. Add distilled water to each cell until the battery
acid reaches the level specified by the battery
manufacturer. Do not overfill. For a battery without
removable cell caps, such as valve regulated
lead acid batteries (VRLA), carefully follow the
manufacturer’s recharging instructions.
10.Read, understand and follow all instructions for
the charger, battery, vehicle and any equipment
used near the battery and charger. Study all of the
battery manufacturer’s specific precautions while
charging and recommended rates of charge.
11.Determine the voltage of the battery by referring to
the vehicle owner’s manual and make sure that the
output voltage selector switch is set to the correct
voltage. If the charger has an adjustable charge
rate, charge the battery in the lowest rate first.
12.Make sure that the charger cable clips make tight
connections.
CHARGER LOCATION
1. Locate the charger as far away from the battery
as the DC cables permit.
2. Never place the charger directly above the
battery being charged; gases from the battery
will corrode and damage the charger.
4. Never allow battery acid to drip onto the charger
when reading the electrolyte specific gravity or
filling the battery.
5. Do not operate the charger in a closed-in area or
restrict the ventilation in any way.
3. Do not set the battery on top of the charger.

and removing the A.C. plug from the electrical outlet. Never allow the clips to touch each other.
2. Attach the clips to the battery and chassis.
FOLLOW THESE STEPS WHEN BATTERY IS INSTALLED IN VEHICLE
1. Position the A.C. and D.C. cables to reduce the
risk of damage by the hood, door and moving or
hot engine parts. NOTE: If it is necessary to close
the hood during the charging process, ensure
that the hood does not touch the metal part of the
battery clips or cut the insulation of the cables.
2. Stay clear of fan blades, belts, pulleys and other
parts that can cause injury.
3. Check the polarity of the battery posts. The POSITIVE
(POS, P, +) battery post usually has a larger
diameter then the NEGATIVE (NEG, N, -) post.
4. Determine which post of the battery is grounded
(connected) to the chassis. If the negative post is
grounded to the chassis (as in most vehicles). If the
positive post is grounded to the chassis.
5. For a negative-grounded vehicle, connect the
POSITIVE (RED) clip from the battery charger to
the POSITIVE (POS, P, +) ungrounded post of the
battery. Connect the NEGATIVE (BLACK) clip to
the vehicle chassis or engine block away from the
battery. Do not connect the clip to the carburetor, fuel
lines or sheet-metal body parts. Connect to a heavy
gauge metal part of the frame or engine block.

CONTROL PANEL
Charge Rate Selector Switch
Use the Charge Rate selector switch to select the
charge rate or engine starting setting you require.
• 2A Slow Charge Rate – Intended for charging small
batteries such as those commonly used in garden
tractors, snow mobiles and motorcycles.
• 10A Fast and 40A Rapid Charge Rate – Use
for charging automotive, marine and deep-cycle
batteries. Not intended for industrial applications.
• 100A and 200A Engine Start – Provides 100 or 200
amps for cranking an engine with a weak or run down
battery. Always use in combination with a battery.
Timer
• Timer Setting: The timer allows you to set a specified
time for charging. After the timer expires, the charger
stops charging your battery. The main function of
the timer is to prevent over charging while allowing
a battery time to obtain a satisfactory charge. To
properly set the timer, you must know the size of
the battery in ampere hours or reserve capacity in
minutes and the state of charge. It is important that
you determine the appropriate state of charge of
your battery as specified in Section "CALCULATING
CHARGE TIME" and set the timer accordingly.
• Hold: This position defeats the timer function,
allowing for continuous operation. Be sure to
monitor the charging progress and stop it when
the battery is charged. Not doing so may cause
damage to your battery or may cause other
personal property damage or personal injury.
Ammeter
The Ammeter indicates the amount of current,
measured in amps, that is being drawn by the battery.
As a battery takes on a charge, it draws less current
from the charger. Correspondingly, the meter will show
less current being drawn by the battery. When the
current stops decreasing, the battery is charged. The
start area of the meter indicates a high rate of current
being drawn from the charger. When cranking an
engine, the meter needle will be at the extreme right
side of the start area. The 2 amp charge rate may
indicate some activity on the meter, although the meter
does not have the resolution to display this low rate.

CALCULATING CHARGE TIME
The Hydrometer or Electronic Method
To find the time needed to fully charge your battery, determine the battery’s charge level with a hydrometer or electronic
Percent-of-Charge Tester. The following table will help you convert hydrometer readings to percent of charge values.
SPECIFIC GRAVITY
1.265
1.225
1.155
1.120
PERCENT OF CHARGE
100%
75%
25%
0%
PERCENT OF CHARGE NEEDED
0%
25%
75%
100%
When you know the percent of charge and the Amp Hour (AH) rating of your battery, you can calculate the
approximate time needed to bring your battery to a full charge.
To convert Reserve Capacity to Amp Hours, divide Reserve Capacity by 2, and add 16:
Example:
Amp Hour Rating = Reserve Capacity/2 + 16
NOTE: The Reserve Capacity can be obtained from the battery specification sheet or the owner’s manual.
To calculate the time needed for a charge:
1. Find the percent of charge needed. (A battery at 50 percent charge that will be charged to 100 percent needs
another 50 percent (.50)).
2. Multiply the Amp Hour Rating by the charge needed (.50) and divide by the charge rate.
3. Multiply the results by 1.25 and you will have the total time needed, in hours, to bring the battery to full charge.
4. Add an additional hour for a deep-cycle battery.
Example:
(Amp Hour Rating x % of charge needed)/Charger Setting x 1.25 = hours of charge
(100 (Ah Rating) x .50 (charge needed))/20 (Charger Setting) x 1.25 = 3.125 hours
(100 x .50)/20 x 1.25 = 3.125
You would need to charge your 100-Ampere Hour Battery for a little more than 3 hours at the 20-Amp charge
rate using the above example.
The Chart Method
Use the following table to more accurately determine the time it will take to bring a battery to full charge. First,
identify where your battery fits into the chart.
NR means that the charger setting is NOT RECOMMENDED.
Find your battery’s rating on the chart below, and note the charge time given for each charger setting. The times
given are for batteries with a 50% charge prior to recharging. Add more time for severely discharged batteries.
