The charger will estimate automatically whether the
battery recondition is needed. It will recondition the
battery only when the voltage is lower than 13V
and when the battery has gone into float
charge. The maximum output voltage is 18±0.3V
during the process of recondition. The process cycles
every 4±0.5h until the voltage is higher than 13V. If it
cycles 5 times and the voltage is still lower than 13V,
there will be a code "F01" present on the display panel,
indicating error. Please replace the battery.
14. Charging State LED Indicator: It is a green LED,
when battery is charged at a constant current or
a constant voltage, the green LED flash. When the
battery is full charged or goes into float charge, the
green LED illuminates.
Warning! Working in the vicinity of a battery is
dangerous. Batteries generate explosive gases
during normal battery operation. For this reason, it
is of utmost importance that each time before using
a battery charger, you read this guide and follow the
instructions exactly.

ensure the proper contacts between the terminals and
the charger's clips.
Before Charging
f Making sure the battery charger is disconnected from
the power supply.
f Making sure that the voltage of the battery matches
the rated output of the battery charger by referring to
the vehicle owner's manual.
f Check the polarities of the battery terminals: Positive
for the (+) symbol and Negative for the (–) symbol.
Note: If the symbols are indistinguishable,
remember that the positive terminal is the one not
connected to the vehicle chassis.
