Warnings and safety notes

Never leave the charge unsupervised when it is connected to its power supply.If any
maifunction is observed immediately terminate the process and refer to the operation

Keep away the unit from dust ,damp,rain,heat direct sunshine and vibration.Do not
drop it.

The circuit of the unit is designed to be power by a 12V DC only.

This unit and the battery to charge or discharge should be set up on a
head-resistant,non-inflammable and non-conductive surface.Never place them on a
car seat,carpet or similar,Keep all the infalmmable volatile materials well away from
operating area.

Be sure to understand the information of the battery to be charged or discharged
accurately.If the program is set up incorrectly the battery can severely be
damaged.Especially Lithium battery can cause a fire or an an explosion by

To avoid short-circuits between the charge lead,always connect the charge cable to
the unit first and only then to the battery to be charged or discharge.Reverse the
sequence when disconnecting.

Do not connect more than one battery pack to the charge lead at any one time.

Do not attempt to charge or discharge the following types of battery.
-Battery pack,which consists of different types of cell(including different manufactur-
-Battery,which is already fully charged or just slightly discharged.
-Non-rechargeable batteries(Explosion hazard).
-Batteries that require a different charge technique from NiCd,NiMH,Lilo,LiPo,LiFe
or Pb
-Faulty or damaged battery.
-Battery fitted with an integral charge circuit or a protection circuit.
-Batteries installed in a device, or which are electrically linked to other components.
-Batterise that are not expressly stated by the manufacturer to be suitable for the
currents the charger delivers during the charge process.

Please bear in mind of checking the following point before charge operation.
-Did you select the appropriate program,which are suitable for the type of battery?
-Did you set up adequate current for charging or discharging?
-Lithium battery pack can be composed with parallel and series circuits mixed.You
have to check the compostion of the battery pack carefully before charging.
-Are all connections firm and safe,or is there an intermittent contact at any point in
the circuit?

A specific quantity of electrcal energy is fed into the battery during charge
process.The charge quantity is calculated by multiplying charge time.The maximum
permissible charge current varies according to the battery type or its
performance,and can be found in the information provided by the battery
manufacturer.It is only allowed to charge batteries at rates higher than the standard
charge current if they are expressly stated to be capable of quick-charge.
-Connect the battery to charge to output terminal of the charge using suitable
charge lead.They are red,positive (+) and black,negative (-).Since the charge cannot
detect the difference between the internal resistance of the battery pack,cable
resistance and connector transfer resistance,the first requirement if the charger to
work properly is that the charge lead should be of adequate conductor
cross-section.And also high-quality connectors(normally gold-contact type)must be
fitted to both ends.
-Refer to the information provided by the battery manufacturer regarding charging
methods,and verify the recommended charge current and charge time.Especially for
lithium batteries,you have to follow the charge instruction provided by the manufac-
turer strictly.
-Do not attempt to disassemble the battery pack arbitrarily.
-You have to pay attention to verify the capacity and the voltage of the Lithium
battery pack,It may be composed of parallel and series connection mixed.In parallel
link the capacity of the battery pack is multiplied by the number of cells but the
voltage remains same.That kind fo voltage imbalance causes a fire or explosion
during charge process.We recommend you compose the Lithium battery pack in
series only.

The typical purpose of discharge is to determine the residual capacity of the
battery,or to lower the voltage of battery to a defined level.When you discharge
