GROUNDING AND AC POWER CORD CONNECTIONS This battery charger is for use on a nominal 120 volt circuit and has a grounded plug. The charger must be grounded to reduce the risk of electric shock. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. The plug pins must fit the receptacle (outlet). Do not use with an ungrounded system. DANGER: Never alter the AC cord or plug provided if it does not fit the outlet, have a proper grounded outlet installed by a qualified electrician. An improper connection can result in a risk of an electric shock or electrocution. NOTE: Pursuant to Canadian Regulations, use of an adapter plug is not allowed in Canada. Use of an adapter plug in the United States is not recommended and should not be used. 9. ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS connect NEGATIVE (BLACK) charger clip to free end of cable. 7.5 Do not face battery when making final connection. 7.6 When disconnecting charger, always do so in reverse sequence of connecting procedure and break first connection while as far away from battery as practical. 7.7 A marine (boat) battery must be removed and charged on shore. To charge it on board requires equipment specially designed for marine use. USING AN EXTENSION CORD The use of an extension cord is not recommended. If you must use an extension cord, follow these guidelines: Pins on plug of extension cord must be the same number, size, and shape as those of plug on charger. Ensure that the extension cord is properly wired and in good electrical condition. Wire size must be large enough for the AC ampere rating of charger, as specified: Length of cord (feet) AWG* size of cord *AWG-American Wire Gauge 9.1 Remove all cord wraps and uncoil the cables prior to using the battery charger. 10. CONTROL PANEL BATTERY TYPE SELECTOR Use this switch to select the type of battery. AGM The Absorbed Glass Mat construction allows the electrolyte to be suspended in close proximity with the plate s active material. In theory, this enhances both the discharge and recharge efficiency. The AGM batteries are a variant of Sealed VRLA (valve regulated lead-acid) batteries. Popular uses include high-performance engine starting, power sports, deep-cycle, solar and storage batteries. Standard Used in cars, trucks and motorcycles, these batteries have vent caps and are often marked low maintenance or maintenance-free. This type of battery is designed to deliver quick bursts of energy (such as starting engines) and has a greater plate count. The plates are thinner and have somewhat different material composition. Standard batteries should not be used for deep-cycle applications. 7 CHARGE RATE SELECTOR Use this switch to select the desired charge rate. The charge rate is measured in amps. 10A 2A CHARGE RATE For charging small and large batteries commonly used in automotive and marine deep-cycle batteries. The charger will automatically adjust the charging current, based on battery size, in order to charge the battery completely, efficiently and safely. Not intended for industrial applications. 50A ENGINE START Provides high amperage for cranking an engine with a weak or run-down battery. Always use in combination with a battery. AMMETER The ammeter indicates the amount of current, measured in amps, that is being drawn by the battery. As a battery takes 11. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS WARNING: A spark near battery may cause an explosion. IMPORTANT: Do not start the vehicle with the charger connected to the AC outlet, or it could damage the charger. NOTE: This charger is equipped with an auto-start feature. Current will not be supplied to the battery clamps until a battery is properly connected. The clamps will not spark if touched together. CHARGING A BATTERY IN THE VEHICLE 1. Turn off all the vehicle s accessories. 2. Keep the hood open. 3. Clean the battery terminals. 4. Place the charger on a dry, nonflammable surface. 5. Lay the AC/DC cables away from any fan blades, belts, pulleys and other moving parts. 6. Connect the battery, following the precautions listed in sections 6 and Connect the charger to an electrical outlet. 8. Select the battery type and charge rate. 9. When charging is complete, disconnect the charger from the AC power, remove the clamps from the vehicle s chassis, and then remove the clamp from the battery terminal. on a charge, it draws less current from the charger. Correspondingly, the meter will show less current being drawn by the battery. When the current stops decreasing, the battery is charged. LED INDICATOR Solid The charger is connected to a battery and is charging. Pulsing The battery is fully charged and the charger is in Maintain mode. Fast Blink (4 times per second) The charger is ready to crank the engine in Engine Start mode. Slow Blink (Once per second) The charger is in Engine Start Cool Down mode. Two Blinks (followed by pause) The charger is in Abort mode. CHARGING A BATTERY OUTSIDE OF THE VEHICLE 1. Place battery in a well-ventilated area. 2. Clean the battery terminals. 3. Connect the battery, following the precautions listed in sections 6 and Connect the charger to the electrical outlet. 5. Select the battery type and charge rate. 6. When charging is complete, disconnect the charger from the AC power, disconnect the negative clamp, and finally the positive clamp. 7. A marine (boat) battery must be removed and charged on shore. AUTOMATIC CHARGING MODE When an Automatic Charge is performed, the charger switches to the maintain mode automatically after the battery is charged. ABORTED CHARGE If charging cannot be completed normally, charging will abort. When charging aborts, the charger s output is shut off and the LED will blink (two blinks followed by a pause). All charger switches become non-functional. To reset after an aborted charge, unplug the charger from the AC outlet, wait a few moments and plug it back in. 8 COMPLETION OF CHARGE Completed charge is indicated by the green LED inside the meter. When pulsing, the charger has switched to the Maintain Mode of operation. MAINTAIN MODE (FLOAT-MODE MONITORING) When the LED pulses, the charger has started Maintain Mode. In this mode, the charger keeps the battery fully charged by delivering a small current when necessary. If the charger has to provide its maximum maintain current for a continuous 12 hour period, it will go into abort mode (see Aborted Charge section). This is usually caused by a drain on the battery or the battery could be bad. Make sure there are no loads on the battery. If there are, remove them. If there are none, have the battery checked or replaced. MAINTAINING A BATTERY The charges and maintains 12 volt batteries, keeping them at full charge. NOTE: The maintain mode technology allows you to safely charge and maintain a healthy battery for extended periods of time. However, problems with the battery, electrical problems in the vehicle, improper connections or other unanticipated conditions could cause excessive current draws. As such, occasionally monitoring your battery and the charging process is required. USING THE ENGINE START SETTING Your battery charger can be used to jump start your car if the battery is low. Follow all safety instructions and precautions for charging your battery. Wear complete eye protection and clothing protection. WARNING: Using the ENGINE START setting WITHOUT a battery installed in the vehicle could cause damage to the vehicle s electrical system. NOTE: If you have charged the battery and it still will not start your car, do not use the Engine Start setting, or it could 12. MAINTENANCE AND CARE A minimal amount of care can keep your battery charger working properly for years. Clean the clamps each time you are finished charging. Wipe off any battery fluid that may have come in contact with the clamps to prevent corrosion. Occasionally cleaning the case of the charger with a soft cloth will keep the finish shiny and help prevent corrosion. damage the vehicle s electrical system. Have the battery checked. 1. With the charger unplugged from the AC outlet, connect the charger to the battery, following the instructions given in the CHARGING A BATTERY IN THE VEHICLE section. 2. With the charger plugged in and connected to the battery and chassis, set the Charge Rate Selector to the 50A Engine Start setting. 3. Crank the engine until it starts or 10 seconds pass. If the engine does not start, wait 3 minutes before cranking again. This allows the charger and battery to cool down. NOTE: During extremely cold weather, or if the battery is under 2 volts, charge the battery for 5 minutes before cranking the engine. 4. If the engine fails to start, charge the battery for 5 more minutes before attempting to crank the engine again. 5. After the engine starts, unplug the AC power cord before disconnecting the battery clamps from the vehicle. NOTE: If the engine does turn over but never starts, there is not a problem with the starting system; there is a problem somewhere else with the vehicle. STOP cranking the engine until the other problem has been diagnosed and corrected. ENGINE STARTING NOTES During the starting sequence, the charger is set to one of these states: Cranking When cranking is detected, the charger will automatically deliver up to its maximum output as required by the starting system for up to 10 seconds or until the engine cranking stops. Cool Down After cranking, the charger enters a mandatory 3 minute (180 second) cool down state. Coil the input and output cords neatly when storing the charger. This will help prevent accidental damage to the cords and charger. Store the charger unplugged from the AC power outlet in an upright position. Store inside, in a cool, dry place. Do not store the clamps on the handle, clipped together, on or around metal, or clipped to the cables. 9 13. TROUBLESHOOTING PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSE REASON/SOLUTION The charger will not turn on when properly connected. AC outlet is dead. Poor electrical connection. Check for open fuse or circuit breaker supplying AC outlet. Check power cord and extension cord for loose fitting plug. Battery clamps do not spark when touched together.
