is ideal for m_intaining
a fully charged
1, Keep tile AC power and battery conrlected
is fully charged,
2. The chargel
monitols the battery and tops it off as needed.
3, The Float Charge indicator
lights; the display shows charge current when topping
off the battery and returns to "FUL" when completed,
4. To view battery voltage,
press tile Battery Voltage button.
Note: Charging can be termblated by pressing the charge rate selector button at any
time when unit is charging. After AC power interruption,
chargittg restarts at 4
will default to "GEL",
is the process by which the fluid in each of a battery's cells is equalized.
This process occurs after charging
/_,_ W ARNINGS
* NEVER TRY TO EQUALIZE A GEL OR AGM
CELL. THE RESULTING
COULD CAUSE PROPERTY DAMAGE,
The frequency wllich the equalization
process needs to be run depends on the use of
the battery. The more the battery is used, the more undercharged
it becomes; thus the
more frequently the battery should be equalized.
1. Do not use this mode on sealed or valve regulated
batteries, This mode is only
meant for wet (unsealed/vented)
2. Make sure there are no flammable
sources near the recharging
3, Wear safety glasses, gloves and protective
4. Remove battery
MAKE SURE THAT THE BATTERY HAS GOOD
Tile process causes the release of hydrogen
of these gases presents a real danger of explosion.
5. Open the battery cap, if removable.
6, Fill the battery
to the manuf_]cturer's
Since batteries may rapidly
bubble while being chalged,
remember to lefill (only
with distilled water) after the equalization
process is complete and the voltage
7, Follow the steps in the "Charging
the Battery" section on page 5 of this manual.
8. Push the Battery Type Selector Switch until "WET"
(This mode will
only work if a WET battery
9. Choose tlle correct charge
rate and start charging.
You can check the battery
voltage by pushillg the Battery Voltage button. This wil! trigger the Battery Voltage
10, Push the Equalize button at any time and the battery will automatically
in 4 amp limited current. Note that in order to push the recessed buuon
you will need a small pin or ballpoint
11, Every hour, the temperature
battery is hot to the touch, stop the charging
and allow the battery to cool,
12. The w)ltage
rises, but does ilOt go over
Ol_ ambient temperature;
it will automatically
13. The "WET"
LED flashes while the charger
is in equalize
14. The digital
readout will show "FUL" whell the equalization
process is complete.
Tile EHgine Start function can supply ! 10 amps for engine starting.
1, Set the 4/10/20/40
AMP button to 40 amp mode and immediately
button switch to activate the Ellgille
2. The digital
display will countdown
3. When the "000"
count is reached and begins flashing oil the Display, the vehicle
is ready to start.
4. Crank the engine
irl 3 to B second
bursts. The high current engine starting function requires a resting/cooling
back to regular
5 seconds and will not allow operation
in this mode tot 4 minutes, Wait
4 to B
minutes before a second attempt at starting the engine, if needed.
5. During the rest period,
at 40 amps. After engine starts,
the steps outlined
at tile front of this
manual to disconnect,
battery begins to discharge,
lead sulfate, an insulator, begins
to build up on the battery's
internal plates. This reduces the ability
of tile battery to
hold a full charge.
When that battery
has an immediate
most of the lead
sulfate is dissolved
alld the plates are free of this illsulation.
If a bauery remains in a
over a longer period
of time, the lead sulfate changes to a hard
form, making a full charge difficult to achieve, Reconditioning
a sulfated battery.
