of reliable service when used to charge the specifi ed battery packs.
Capable of charging Li-ion and Ni-MH battery packs when
either attached to or removed from the transceiver.
Easy to use design allows you to start charging by simply
sliding the battery pack into the charging slot.
Overcharge protection. Protects against reduced battery pack
life caused by excessive charging. After the rapid charge
cycle has fi nished, the charger automatically switches to trickle

For other battery packs, please contact your dealer or refer to the
catalog of the transceiver.
Using the transceiver while charging its battery pack will
interfere with correct charging.
If the operating time of a battery pack decreases although the
battery pack is fully and correctly charged, the battery pack life
is over. Replace the battery pack.
The ambient temperature should be from 41°F/ 5°C to 104°F/
40°C while charging is in progress.
When the ambient temperature is in the upper limits (close
to 104°F/ 40°C), the charging time may become longer than
The charging times provided are obtained when a battery
pack discharged to 1 V/cell x 6 (Ni-MH) or 3 V/cell x 2 (Li-
ion) is charged at normal temperatures. This charging time
varies depending on the degree of discharge and the ambient
charging temperature.
This charger may be suitable to charge battery packs not listed
herein, due to further technology development. Check your
transceiver Instruction Manual to confi rm whether this charger
is suitable for your battery pack.
If the battery pack contacts are not properly mated with the
charger terminals, the indicator may fl ashing red or may remain
unlit. To resolve this problem, reinsert the battery pack after
cleaning the batter pack contacts and the charger terminals.
Repeatedly recharging a fully charged battery pack, or almost
fully charged pack, shortens its operating time. To resolve this
problem, use the pack until it is completely discharged, then
recharge the pack to full capacity (Ni-MH) .
The battery life in charge/discharge cycles is approximately
300. However, overcharging and excessive discharging
shortens the battery pack life.
When using this equipment near a radio or television, you may
experience interference with reception.

Do not use an extension cable unless absolutely necessary.
Improper extension cables can cause fi re or electric shock. If
an extension cable is required, observe the following points:
a) The quantity, size, and shape of pins on the extension cable
plugs must be the same as on the AC adapter supplied with
the charger.
b) The extension cable must be properly wired and in good
electrical condition.
c) The wire size must be adequate to carry the current
required by this charger.
Extension cables shorter than 100 feet:
• Wire size must be 18 AWG or larger
Extension cables 100 to 150 feet, inclusive:
• Wire size must be 16 AWG or larger
Always remove the AC adapter from a wall outlet before
attempting to inspect or clean the charger. Removing the
battery packs or changing the controls does not remove the AC
voltage from the charger.
