Model Number: GENIUS10
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
The GENIUS10 has nine (9) modes: Standby, 12V, 12V AGM, 12V LITHIUM, 6V, 6V AGM, REPAIR, SUPPLY and Force. Some charge modes must be pressed and held for three (3) to five (5) seconds to enter the mode. These "Press and Hold" modes are advanced charging modes that require your full attention before selecting. It is important to understand the differences and purpose of each charge mode. Do not operate the charger until you confirm the appropriate charge mode for your battery. Below is a brief description:
(Peak Voltage Measured At 25°C, Amperage Rating Is Bulk Amperage When Above 0°C)

[From Standby Press and Hold 3 Seconds With Clamps Connected to the Battery]
Using 6V. [Press & Hold for 3 seconds]
6V charge mode is designed for 6-volt lead-acid batteries only, like Wet Cell, Gel Cell, Enhanced Flooded, Maintenance-Free and Calcium batteries. Press and hold for three (3) seconds to enter 6V Charge Mode. Consult the battery manufacturer before using this mode.
Using 12V Lithium.
12V Lithium charge mode is designed for 12-volt lithium-ion batteries only, including lithium iron phosphate.
USE THIS MODE WITH EXTREME CARE. THIS MODE SHOULD ONLY BE USED WITH 12-VOLT LITHIUM BATTERIES THAT HAVE A BUILT-IN BATTERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (BMS). LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES ARE MADE AND CONSTRUCTED IN DIFFERENT WAYS AND SOME MAY OR MAY NOT CONTAIN A BATTERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (BMS). CONSULT THE LITHIUM BATTERY MANUFACTURER BEFORE CHARGING AND ASK FOR RECOMMENDED CHARGING RATES AND VOLTAGES. SOME LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES MAY BE UNSTABLE AND UNSUITABLE FOR CHARGING.
Using 13.6V Supply. [Press and Hold 3 Seconds With Clamps Not Connected]
13.6V Supply converts the charger to a constant current, constant voltage DC power supply. It can be used to power 12VDC devices, tire inflators, seat heaters and more. As a power supply, it can also be used to retain a vehicle's on-board computer settings during battery repair or replacement. 13.6V Supply provides 13.6-volts at 10A with overload protection at 12A (Max).
USE THIS MODE WITH EXTREME CARE. SUPPLY MODE DISABLES SAFETY FEATURES AND LIVE POWER IS PRESENT AT THE CONNECTORS. DO NOT TOUCH CONNECTIONS TOGETHER. RISK OF SPARKS, FIRE, EXPLOSION, PROPERTY DAMAGE, INJURY, AND DEATH.
Using 12V Repair. [From Standby Press and Hold 3 Seconds With Clamps Connected to the Battery]
12V Repair is an advanced battery recovery mode for repairing and storing, old, idle, damaged, stratified or sulfated batteries. Not all batteries can be recovered. Batteries tend to become damaged if kept at a low charge and/or never given the opportunity to receive a full charge. The most common battery problems are battery sulfation and stratification. Both battery sulfation and stratification will artificially raise the open circuit voltage of the battery, causing the battery to appear fully charged, while providing low capacity. Use 12V Repair in attempt to reverse these problems. For optimal results, take the 12-volt battery through a full charge cycle, bringing the battery to full charge, before using this mode. 12V Repair can take up to four (4) hours to complete the recovery process and will return to Standby when completed.
USE THIS MODE WITH CARE. THIS MODE IS FOR 12-VOLT LEAD-ACID BATTERIES ONLY. THIS MODE USES A HIGH CHARGING VOLTAGE AND MAY CAUSE SOME WATER LOSS IN WET (FLOODED) CELL BATTERIES. BE ADVISED, SOME BATTERIES AND ELECTRONICS MAY BE SENSITIVE TO HIGH CHARGING VOLTAGES. TO MINIMIZE RISKS TO ELECTRONICS, DISCONNECT THE BATTERY BEFORE USING THIS MODE.
Force Mode. [Press & Hold for 5 seconds]
Force mode allow the charger to manually begin charging when the connected battery's voltage is too low to be detected. If battery voltage is too low for the charger to detect, press and hold the mode button for 5 seconds to activate Force Mode, then select the appropriate mode. All available modes will flash. Once a charge mode is selected, the Charge Mode LED and Charge LED will alternate between each other, indicating Force Mode is active. After five (5) minutes the charger will return to the normal charge operation and low voltage detection will be reactivated.
USE THIS MODE WITH EXTREME CARE. FORCE MODE DISABLES SAFETY FEATURES AND LIVE POWER IS PRESENT AT THE CONNECTORS. ENSURE ALL CONNECTIONS ARE MADE PRIOR TO ENTERING FORCE MODE, AND DO NOT TOUCH CONNECTIONS TOGETHER. RISK OF SPARKS, FIRE, EXPLOSION, PROPERTY DAMAGE, INJURY, AND DEATH.
Connecting to the Battery.
Do not connect the AC power plug until all other connections are made. Identify the correct polarity of the battery terminals on the battery. Do not make any connections to the carburetor, fuel lines, or thin, sheet metal parts. The below instructions are for a negative ground system (most common). If your vehicle is a positive ground system (very uncommon), follow the below instructions in reverse order.
Auto-Memory: The charger has built in auto-memory and will return to the last charge mode when connected. To change modes after the first use, press the mode button.
The estimated time to charge a battery is shown below. The size of the battery (Ah) and its depth of discharge (DOD) greatly affect its charging time. The charge time is based on an average depth of discharge to a fully charged battery and is for reference purposes only. Actual data may differ due to battery conditions. The time to charge a normally discharged battery is based on a 50% DOD. Temperature will also impact charging times. The GENIUS10 features thermal compensation that automatically adjusts charging profiles to maximize charging performance.
|Battery Size||Approximate Time to Charge In Hours|
|Ah (Amp hour)||6V||12V|
Understanding Charge LEDs.
|25% Red LED ||The 25% Charge LED will slowly pulse "on" and "off", when the battery is less than 25% fully charged. When the battery is 25% charged, the red Charge LED will be solid.|
|50% Red LED ||The 50% Charge LED will slowly pulse "on" and "off", when the battery is less than 50% fully charged. When the battery is 50% charged, the red Charge LED will be solid.|
|75% Orange LED ||The 75% Charge LED will slowly pulse "on" and "off", when the battery is less than 75% fully charged. When the battery is 75% charged, the orange Charge LED will be solid.|
|100% Green LED ||Pulsing Green LED - Bulk charge complete, optimizing battery for extended life. Solid Green LED - When the battery is 100% charged, the Charge LED will be solid green.|
|Maintenance Green LED ||After the battery is fully charged, the charger will continue monitoring the battery, and provide ongoing maintenance and optimization. The 100% Charge LED will pulse "on" and "off" slowly during these cycles. The charger can be left connected to the battery indefinitely.|
Understanding Error LEDs
Error Conditions will be indicated by the following LEDs.
|Solid||Charger is in Standby mode or Battery voltage is too low for charger to detect.|
|Solid||Battery voltage is too high for the selected charge mode. Check the battery and charge mode.|
|Solid||Possible battery short / Battery will not hold a charge. Have battery checked by a professional.|
|Solid||Reverse polarity. Reverse the battery connections.|
|Flashing|| Charger internal temperature too high / Charger will resume function once the Charger internal temperature drops. |
