Description: The CR-1 Smart Charger was designed to give enthusiasts the ability to charge and operate your battery-powered engine right from your box-car, gondola, coal hopper, or tender. One of the best features of the CR-1 is it’s ability to charge multiple battery chemistry’s (NiCd, Nimh, Lithium-ion, Polymer & Prismatic) all from one charger.
Features: Intelligent charger designed for all types of Nickel (6 – 15 Cells) Lithium (3 – 6 cells) Battery packs including Lithium-Ion, Polymer & Prismatic. Worldwide input AC power from 110V — 240V. 1000 mA (1A ) constant charging current. Charging time for 4000mAh Nimh battery pack is about 4 hours. Charging time for 5600mah Lithium battery pack is about 5 1/2 hours. Built in IC to cut off power automatically when battery is fully charge. Two pins male connector is for connecting to Li-Ion battery pack. 1 amp Switch Mode Power Supply is include Compact size and lightweight. The CR-1 is perfect to charge five different battery chemistry’s.
Red LED: Indicates battery is charging. Green LED: Indicates full charge and automatically turns the charger to off. Green / LED Off: Charge Complete, Power Save Mode. Quick “One Flash” Green: Indicates charger is connected to the battery. Flashing Green: Intermittent contact with battery, check connection. Green / Red / No LED Indication: The fuse is blown or there is something wrong with the CR1. Flashing Red LED: Charger can not charge the battery, incorrect dip-switch settings. Flashing RED / Green LED: Your battery is below nominal voltage and the Charge LED indicator will flash Red/Green continuously until the voltage rises above the PCB cut off limit. Once above the limit, the CR-1 will turn to a steady Red LED and charge your battery fully.
Please DO NOT use this charger with any Lithium battery pack that doesn’t have a built-in protection circuit board/module (PCB/PCM).
Lithium Battery Warning
CR-1 Instruction Manual
Lithium Battery Warranty: Do not use a Nickel based charger to charge a lithium battery. Charging a lithium battery with a non-designated charger will void your warranty and possibly cause a fire. When charging your lithium batteries you should always remain in constant observation to monitor the charging process and reaction to potential problems that may occur. Failure to do so may result in fire. Some lithium chargers on the market may have technical deficiencies that may cause it to charge your lithium battery incorrectly or at an improper rate. (over 1 amp per hour charge) It is your responsibility to assure the charger you purchased works properly and is preset to the correct setting.
If at any time or for any reason your lithium battery is warm to the touch, or you witness your battery starting to balloon, swell-up, smoke or get hot, discontinue the charging process immediately and disconnect the battery from the charger and observe it in a safe place outside of your home or garage. If this occurs, turn the charger off, take the battery outside and/or out of the device your’re using it in, place the battery on a concrete surface and call the manufacturer. Check your chargers “per cell setting” and make sure you have selected to correct number of cells that reflects your batteries voltage, ie: (7.4V = 2 cells, 11.1V = 3 cell, 14.8V = 4 cells, 18.5V = 5 cells, 22.2V = 6 cells). Also, make sure you have the correct charger (Nickel, Lithium, SLA, Zinc) for your batteries chemistry.
Wire lead shorts can cause fire! If you accidentally short circuit the wire leads to the PCB, the battery must be placed in a safe area for observation for approximately 15 minutes. If a short occurs and contact is made with metal (such as rings on your hand) severe injuries may occur due to the conductibility. A battery can still ignite even after 15 minutes. If for any reason you cut the quick connector terminal from the lithium battery, the warranty is voided.
Never store or charge your battery-pack inside your car in extreme temperatures, since extreme temperatures could ignite and cause a fire. Never drop your battery. If you installation your lithium battery within an enclosed environment, we suggest you add air vents to the structure or place a fan within the structure to help circulation.
