The Scout LiPo battery charger can charge a battery via AC or DC power sources. The battery charger features an AUTO function that set the feeding current during the process of charging or discharging. Especially for Lithium batteries, it can prevent the overcharging which may lead to an explosion due to the user’s fault. It can disconnect the circuit automatically and alarm once detecting any malfunction. All the programs of this product were controlled through two way linkage and communication, to achieve the maximum safety and minimize the trouble. All the settings can be configured by users!
Note: Charger includes an XT60 charging cable.
Internal independent lithium battery balancer
Scout Charger employs an individual-cell-voltage balancer. It isn’t necessary to connect an external balancer for balance charging.
Balancing individual cells battery discharging
During the process of discharging, the charger monitors and balance each cell of the battery individually. Error message will be indicated and the process will be ended automatically if the voltage of any single one cell is abnormal.
Adaptable to various type of lithium battery
Scout Charger is adaptable to various types of Lithium batteries, such as Li-ion, LiPo and the new LiFe series of batteries.
Fast and storage mode of lithium battery
Purposes to charge Lithium battery varies, ‘fast’ charge reduce the duration of charging, whereas ‘store’ state can control the final voltage of your battery, so as to store for a long time and
protect useful time of the battery.
Delta-peak sensitivity: The automatic charge termination program based on the principle of the Delta-peak voltage detection. When the battery’s voltage exceeds the threshold, the process will be terminated automatically.
Automatic charging current limit
You can set up the upper limit of the charging current when charging your NiCd or NiMH battery; it is useful for the NiMH battery of low impedance and capacity in the ‘AUTO’ charging mode.
The charging capacity is always calculated as the charging current multiplied by time. If the charging capacity exceeds the limit, the process will be terminated automatically when you set the maximum value.
The battery’s internal chemical reaction will cause the temperature of the battery to rise. If the temperature limit is reached, the process will be terminated.
* This function is available by connecting optional temperature probe, which is not included with this charger.
Processing time limit:
You can also limit the maximum process time to avoid any possible defect.
Input power monitoring
To protect the car battery used as DC input power from being damaged, its voltage keeps being monitored. If it drops below the lower limit, the process will be ended automatically.
The maximum five batteries’ data can be stored for users’ convenience. You can keep the data pertaining to program setting of the battery of continuous charging or discharging. Users can call out these data at any time without any special program setting.
1 to 5 cyclic and continuous process of charge>discharge or discharge>charge is operable for battery refreshing and Balancing to stimulate the battery’s activity.
