Series V5+ Battery Charger
- Input Voltage: 100-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz
- Charger Type: Ni-Cd/Ni-MH Battery Packs
- Charging Current: max. 1.8A
- Trickle charge current: 100mA ±50mA)
- LED indications
Charging begins when the battery pack is connected to the charger. The LED will be orange before the fast charge starts and the LED changes to red. When the cells are fully charged and the voltage drops (because of the -dV signal from the cells), the charger will go into a top-off charge mode before switching to trickle charge mode.
During the top-off charge session, the LED will be green with short, intermittent orange flashes. When the top-off charge is complete, the charger will go into trickle charge mode, changing the LED color to green. The charge current is now reduced to a safe level, permitting the charger to stay connected to a battery pack without damaging the cells. Trickle charging in excess of 24 hours is not recommended. If the safety timer disconnects before -dV, the top-off charge will not be engaged. The charger will then go directly to trickle charge mode and the LED will be green in color. If the battery voltage is far below normal, the charger will stop the fast charge current and switch to trickle charge mode. The LED will then indicate "error" by flickering green and orange.
If the mains are turned off, the charger will reset and start a new charge cycle if the mains are turned on again. Allow approx.
3hrs at 1.8A to fully charge a battery pack.
