Charging the Li-ion Battery Pack
The battery pack is not charged at the factory; charge it before use.
Initially charging
the battery pack after purchase or extended storage (greater than 2 months)
will not bring
the battery pack to its normal operating capacity. After repeating the
charge/discharge
cycle two or three times, the operating capacity will increase to normal.
CAUTION
DO NOT RECHARGE THE BATTERY PACK IF IT IS ALREADY
FULLY CHARGED.DOING SO MAY CAUSE THE LIFE OF THE
BATTERY PACK TO SHORTEN OR THE BATTERY PACK MAY
BE DAMAGED.
AFTER RECHARGING THE BATTERY PACK,DISCONNECT IT
FROM THE CHARGER.
CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK FOR MORE THAN 5 DAYS
MAY REDUCE THE BATTERY PACK LIFE DUE TO
OVERCHARGING.
Note:
The ambient temperature should be between 41 and 104°F (5 and 40℃)
while charging is in progress.
Charging outside this range may not fully charge the battery.
Always switch OFF the transceiver equipped with a Li-ion battery pack
before charging. Using
the transceiver while charging its battery pack will interfere with correct
charging.
The battery pack life is over when its operating time decreases even
though it is fully and correctly charged. Replace the battery pack.
P4
Charging Information
Plug the AC adaptor cable into the adaptor
jack located on the rear of the charger.
Plug the AC adaptor into an AC outlet.
Slide the Li-ion battery pack or transceiver with a Li-ion battery pack into
the charger.
Make sure the battery pack contacts are in contact with the charging
terminals.
The charger LED lights Red and charging begins.
After charging the supplied MAX-10 battery pack for 12 hours, remove
from the charger. Thereafter green light indicates charged battery.
The charger does not turn OFF automatically after charging is completed.
Unplug the AC adaptor from the AC outlet.
Note:
It takes approximately 12 hours to fully charge the MAX-10 (6v /
1200mAh) battery pack. for the first time.
P5
Installing/Removing the Battery Pack
The average life of the supplied MAX-10 Lion battery pack is up to 16
hours use.
Average times are calculated using 5% transmit time 5% receive time,
and 90% standby time. (5/5/90 cycle)
CAUTION
DO NOT SHORT THE BATTERY TERMINALS OR DISPOSE OF
THE BATTERY BY FIRE.
NEVER ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE CASING FROM THE
BATTERY PACK.
Match the four grooves of the battery pack with the corresponding guides
on the back of the transceiver.
To remove the battery pack, pull back on the release latch and slide the
pack away from the transceiver.
Slide the battery pack along the back of the transceiver until the release
latch on the base of the transceiver locks.
P6
.
Installing the Belt Clip
If necessary, buckle the belt clip to the back of the battery pack.
Note: If the belt clip is not installed, its mounting location may get
Warm during continuous transmission or when left sitting in a hot
environment.
CAUTION
DO NOT USE GLUE WHICH IS DESIGNED TO PREVENT SCREW
LOOSENING
WHEN INSTALLING THE BELT CLIP, AS IT MAY CAUSE
DAMAGE TO THE
TRANSCEIVER.ACRYLIC ESTER, WHICH IS CONTAINED IN
THESE GLUES, MAY
CRACK THE TRANSCEIVER'S BACK PANEL.
P7
Installing the Cover over the Speaker/ Microphone Jacks
If you are not using a speaker / microphone, install the cover over the
speaker Microphone jacks using the supplied 3 x 6 mm screw.

AUXILIARY FUNCTIONS
Time-out Timer
The purpose of the Time-out Timer is to prevent any single person from
using a channel for an extended period of time.
If you continuously transmit for 300 seconds, the transceiver will stop
transmitting and a tone will sound.
To stop the tone, release the PTT switch. You can press the PTT switch
again to resume transmitting.
Battery Save
The Battery Save function decreases the amount of power used when a
signal is not being received and no operations are being performed (no
keys are being pressed, and no switches are being turned). While the
channel is not busy and no operation is performed for 10 seconds, Battery
Save turns ON.
When a signal is received or an operation is performed, Battery Save
turns OFF.
Low Battery Warning
Low Battery Warning alerts you when the battery needs to be recharged.
While transmitting, if the battery power goes below a predetermined
value, the LED will blink red. When a tone sounds, the transceiver stops
transmitting.
Replace or recharge the battery pack.
P11
Monitor
When no signals are present, the squelch on the transceiver automatically
mutes the speaker so you will not hear background noise.
To manually deactivate the squelch, press and hold the Monitor key.
This is useful when you want to adjust the volume level, or when you
need to hear a weak signal.
The LED indicator lights green while the Monitor key is pressed.
Quiet Talk (QT)
Some channels may have pre-programmed QT tones.
A QT tone is a sub audible tone which allows you to ignore (not hear)
calls from other parties who are using the same channel.
When you receive a signal that has a tone different from the one set up in
your transceiver, you will not hear the signal.
Likewise, signals that you transmit will only be heard by parties whose
QT tone matches the tone set up in your transceiver.
Note:
Although using channels set up with QT tones relieves you from listening
to unwanted calls, it does not mean your calls will be private.

Electromagnetic interference / Compatibility
During transmissions, your radio generates RF energy that can possibly
cause interference with other devices or systems. To avoid such
interference, turn off the radio in areas where signs are posted to do so.
DO NOT operate the transmitter in areas that are sensitive to
electromagnetic radiation such as hospitals, aircraft, and blasting sites.
We hope your Max-555 Transceivers will provide years of
trouble free operation!
