Safety precautions
•
KEEP CHARGER AWAY FROM CHILDREN AND PETS AT ALL TIMES!
•
This charger is designed ONLY for NiCd, NiMH, Lithium(3.7V/cell), Lead-Acid (2.0V/cell) type cells.
DO NOT attempt to charge other types, or non-rechargeable batteries!
•
Always place the charger on a firm, level, and fireproof surface for charging.
•
Do not place the battery or charger on or near flammable materials while in use.
Keep away from carpets, cluttered workbenches, etc.
•
Do not exceed cell manufacturer’s suggested max charge rates
•
Do not use automotive type battery chargers to power the charger.
•
Do not leave the charger unattended while charging.
•
Disconnect the battery and remove input power from charger immediately if the charger becomes hot.
Allow the charger or battery to cool down before reconnecting.
•
Do not allow water, moisture or foreign objects into the charger.
•
Do not open the charger, nor attempt any repair. It is dangerous, and will void your warranty.
•
Do not obstruct the air intake holes on the charger.
•
ALWAYS follow correct connection sequence, as given below
CAREFULLY FOLLOW THE BATTERY PACK MAKER’S RECOMMENDATIONS AND SAFETY ADVICE!
Using the EOS 5i
The EOS 5i includes an Output Harness with two 4mm male “banana” connectors attached. First,
solder your chosen battery connector to the harness, taking great care to observe proper polarity.
ALWAYS FOLLOW this connection sequence, and reverse sequence to disconnect:
1) Connect OUTPUT harness to the sockets located on the
right side of the charger.
Take care that the Output Harness RED wire bullet connector
goes to the (+) socket, and the BLACK wire to (-) socket, as
pictured on right.
2) Connect Charger INPUT alligator clips to an appropriate DC power source:
a) A 12V automobile battery
b) A quality, low-noise DC power supply of 12~15V with 10A rating (5A for up to 3S lithium, 9NiCd)
DO NOT connect to any other types of power source: i.e. Car Charger, or AC wall outlet!!
The Charger will display INPUT VOLTAGE error message if under 11V or over 15V. If this happens, please
recheck the input power supply to make sure adequate power is present.
3) Set the battery type using the charger configuration
buttons.
*The INC and DEC buttons are used to Increase or
Decrease values, such as Charge Current or LiPo Cell Count
*The INC and DEC buttons are used to select MODE, such as Charge, Discharge, or Cycle
*The BATT TYPE and ENTER buttons both have two modes: SHORT press or LONG (~1 second) press
•
Short press BATT TYPE:
Scroll battery types
•
Long press BATT TYPE:
View input/output Data
•
Short press ENTER:
Scroll settings for a battery type. Values will blink when selected. If nothing is
changed, blinking will stop. Short press Enter until re-selected, then INC/DEC to change values.
•
Long press ENTER:
START charging (or discharging, or cycling)
Let’s start by using a NiMh battery as an example:
When the charger is first connected to input power, it will display the previously used battery configuration.
This is especially convenient if you often charge the same type of battery.
1) If NIMH is not shown, short push the BATT TYPE button to scroll through all battery types.
Stop when
you reach NIMH.
2) Short press the ENTER button to select “C”, charge rate in Ampere
3) Press INC or DEC buttons to choose the proper rate for your battery pack.
Charging NiCd and NiMH is mostly automatic, and the setup routines are the same for both.
You only need to consult the
documentation for your battery pack (or ask your dealer) to determine the proper charge current in Ampere (A).
is given in mA, note that 100mA equals 0.1A:
so 900mA would be 0.9A, for example.
4) Attach your NiMH battery to the EOS 5i Output side harness, checking that +/- polarity is correct.
5) Long press ENTER button (hold down for about 1 second) to begin charging
NO BATTERY error - if battery not connected
OPEN CIRCUIT error - if the battery becomes disconnected from the charger after START
REVERSE POLARITY error - if the battery is connected in reverse
If the rate
In our NiMH charging example above, we pressed the ENTER button when “NiMH” was blinking, to go directly
to charge rate setting.
However, if you want to enter DISCHARGE or CYCLE modes, you can press the BATT
TYPE button to start NiMH blinking, then press INC/DEC buttons to scroll through the various modes.
Once
the mode is settled (like CYCLE), short press ENTER to start values blinking for editing.
Below are the flow charts for all the settings in the charger.
Have a play with no battery connected, to see
how to set all the parameters, for all supported battery types.

3S = 11.1V - three-cell series pack
4S = 14.8V - four-cell series pack
5S = 18.5V- five-cell series pack
NOTE: The EOS Series chargers have intelligent detection routines to help you avoid making mistakes, and
LOW or HIGH VOLTAGE errors are displayed if battery voltage does not match your setting.
HOWEVER, under
some circumstances, especially with over-discharged or damaged batteries, the safeguard could fail. Therefore,
be absolutely sure that you have correctly set pack voltage correctly before charging, every time!

Autocut occurs automatically at 3.0V per cell.
