Reverse the sequence when disconnecting. O Do not connect more than one battery pack to this charger at any one time. O Never attempt to charge or discharge the following types of batteries. • A battery pack which consists of different types of cells (including different manufacturers) • A battery that is already fully charged or just slightly discharged. • Non-rechargeable batteries (Explosion hazard). • Batteries that require a different charge technique from NiCd, NiMh, LiPo or Gel cell (Pb, Lead acid). • A faulty or damaged battery. • A battery fitted with an integral charge circuit or a protection circuit. • Batteries installed in a device or which are electrically linked to other components. • Batteries that are not expressly stated by the manufacturer to be suitable for the currents the charger delivers during the charge process. 09 O Please bear in mind the following points before commencing charging: • Did you select the appropriate program suitable for the type of battery you are charging? • Did you set up adequate current for charging or discharging? • Have you checked the battery voltage? Lithium battery packs can be wired in parallel and in series, i.e. a 2 cell pack can be 3.7V (in parallel) or 7.4V (in series). • Have you checked that all connections are firm and secure? Make sure there are no intermittent contacts at any point in the circuit. O Charging During charge process, a specific quantity of electrical energy is fed into the battery. The charge quantity is calculated by multiplying charge current by charge time. The maximum permissible charge current varies depending on the battery type or its performance, and can be found in the information by the battery manufacturer. Only batteries that are expressly stated to be capable of quick-charge are allowed to be charged at rates higher than the standard charge current. Connect the battery to the terminal of the charger: red is positive and black is negative. Due to the difference between resistance of cable and connector, the charger can not detect resistance of the battery pack, the essential requirement for the charger to work properly is that the charge lead should be of adequate conductor cross-section, and high quality connectors which are normally goldplated should be fitted to both ends. 10 WARNING AND SAFETY NOTES Always refer to the manual by the battery manufacturer pertaining to charging methods, recommended charging current and charging time. Especially, the Lithium battery should be charged according the charging instruction provided by the manufacturer strictly. Attention should be paid to the connection of Lithium battery especially. Do not attempt to disassemble the battery pack arbitrarily Please get highlighted that Lithium battery packs can be wired in parallel and in series. In the parallel connection, the battery's capacity is calculated by multiplying single battery's capacity by the number of cells with total voltage stay the same. The voltage's imbalance may cause fire or explosion .Lithium battery is recommended to charge in series. O Discharging The main purpose of discharging is to clean residual capacity of the battery, or to reduce the battery's voltage to a defined level. The same attention should be paid to the discharging process as charging. The final discharge voltage should be set up correctly to avoid deep-discharging. Lithium battery can not be discharged to lower than the minimum voltage, or it will cause a rapid loss of capacity or a total failure. Generally, Lithium battery doesn't need to be discharged. Please pay attention to the minimum voltage of Lithium battery to protect the battery. Some rechargeable batteries have a memory effect. If they are partly used and recharged before the whole charge is accomplished, they remember this and will only use that part of their capacity next time. This is a 'memory effect' It is said that NiCd and NiMH batteries are suffering from memory effect. NiCd has more memory effect than NiMH. Lithium batteries are recommended to be discharged partially rather than fully discharged. Frequent full discharging should be avoided if possible. Instead, charge the battery more often or use a battery of larger capacity. Full capacity cannot be used until it has been subjected to 10 or more charge cycles. The cyclic process of charge and discharge will optimize the capacity of battery pack.

There are three kinds of Lithium battery: LiFe(3.3V), Lilo(3.6V) or LiPo(3.7V). This information is of critical importance that you have to check the battery carefully to make sure it is set up correctly. If it is different from correct value, explosion can occur during charge process. DEC INC DEC INC NiMH Sensitivity D.Peak Default DEC INCDEC INC DDDDDD To avoid from erroneous setting by users, T6AC/T6 detects the cell count of Lithium battery automatically at the beginning of charge or discharge process. But battery that is deep-discharged can't be detected correctly. To avoid this error, the time term can be set to verify the cell count by the processor. Normally, 15 seconds are enough to detect the cell count correctly. You need to extend the time term limit for the battery of large capacity. But the charge or discharge process may come to an end within the time term because of the time limit decided by the wrong count if you set too long time limit for the battery of small capacity. This may cause fatal error. You have to extend the time term if the processor detect the cell count incorrectly at the beginning of charge or discharge process. Otherwise, default value is recommended to use. NiCd Sensitivity D.Peak Default DEC INC DEC INC USB/Temp Select Temp Cut-Off 80C This shows the trigger voltage for automatical charge termination of NiMH and NiCd battery.
