This is the Great Planes ElectriFly Four Output DC Powered Battery Charger for Lithium Polymer Batteries only.
The instructions for the ElectriFly PolyCharge4 charger state the built-in fan turns ON when a load is present on any of the four outputs. This is incorrect. The fan turns ON any time input power is applied to the charger. We regret this error. **Do not use this charger with NiCd, NiMH or Lithium Ion batteries,** **They are not compatible.** **Damage from misuse or modification of this charger voids the warranty.**
FEATURES: Four outputs independently Charge 1-4 cell Lithium Polymer batteries Automatically detects number of cells on each output-no switch to set "Constant Current/Constant Voltage" Charge method Each output features push-button START/STOP control, three-hour safety timer and dial to set battery capacity from 300mAh-3000mAh Audio and tri-color LEDs provide warnings for improper input voltage and output reverse polarity Built-in cooling fan Reverse polarity and current overload protection on input One year limited warranty (USA and Canada only)
INCLUDES: One Great Planes ElectriFly Lithium-Polymer battery charger with alligator clip input connectors & banana jack Charge outputs Instruction manual
REQUIRES: A 12V-15V DC Power Supply such as the Rivergate 15A DC Bulldog or an automotive battery able to provide at least 14A continuous Charge leads w/banana plugs and battery connector to match battery Can use the following Charge leads:
GPMM3105....CHARGE LEADS, BANANA PLUGS TO BEC CONNECTOR
HCAP0101....FUTABA J Tx/Rx LEADS ALL RADIOS EXCEPT 9VAP
HCAP0102....FUTABA J Tx/Rx LEADS 9VAP ONLY
HCAP0105....JR Tx/Rx LEADS
HCAP0106....HITEC Tx/Rx LEADS
HCAP0108....CHARGE LEADS, BANANA PLUGS TO ALLIGATOR CLIPS
HCAP0110....Tx BATTERY WITH 9V CONNECTOR, FUTABA J Rx CHARGE LEAD Other charge leads would need to be fabricated using
HCAP0310 Banana Plugs and a battery connector to match the battery.

Output Specifications: Battery Type: 1-4 (3.7-14.8V) Lithium Polymer cells only Charge Control: Push-button Charge Termination: "Constant Current/Constant Voltage" Battery Capacity Range: 300-3000mAh (for batteries larger than 3000mAh, full Charge time will exceed one hour) Fast Charge Current: 300mA-3.0A Status Indicators: Tri-colored LED and audible buzzer Charge Output Jacks: Banana jacks Safety Timer: 3-hour maximum Charge time Fuse: 20A replaceable auto type spade fuse
COMMENTS: The maximum voltage LiPo cells can receive during Charge is roughly 4.20V. It is not uncommon that after Charging LiPo battery packs containing multiple cells for the voltage to be slightly less than 4.20V per cell. This is normal. Cells which repeatedly measure under 4.10V after being Charged may require further evaluation. Cells which repeatedly measure under 4.00V after being Charged may require replacement.
