BEFORE CHARGER

Please read the charger instruction book before charging.

Voltage

Ensure they are at or above the minimum safe starting voltage

Check Battery

Check the battery packaging, wires and connectors for defects, which may cause a short circuit and eventual battery failure.

Connection

Check the polarity of the battery cable and charger lead carefully before the connection to avoid any short circuit.

Charger

Always verify the charger is in good condition. A poor quality charger can be dangerous.

 

HOW TO CHARGE LIPO BATTERIES

CHARGER MODE

User should Always charge Batteries in an open area away from flammable materials, liquids and surfaces.

NEVER CHARGE

A. Batteries inside of the model.

B. Batteries below freezing (0°C, 32°F).

C. Batteries are hot to the touch (above 100°F).

D. Overcharge Batteries beyond the capacity.

SETTING

A. Set the charger to the proper cell count and/or voltage.

B. Set the charger to the amp charge rate.

C. Never be set to charge Batteries at a rate greater than 1C.

SUGGESTION

A. Use suitable and good quality lipo balance charger, please don’t use cheap and low quality chargers.

B. When charging, please make sure the surroundings is clean, without sundries around.

C. Don’t charge without monitoring.
