Battery charge/refresh station - part 1:
This microprocessor controlled charger is suitable for Nickel-Cadmium (NiCd) as well as Nickel-Metal-Hydride (NiMH) batteries and battery packs. The charger is capable of topping up 1 to 10 cells using a charging current of up to 3 A. The end of the charging process is automatically detected, as is the adaptation of the charging current when the full actually available capacity is reached. Thanks to a special pulsedriven charging process, discharging is not required before the battery is connected. In addition to the charging function, automatically followed by trickle charging, the station also features a charge/discharge cycle mode and a refresh mode for ‘tired’ or ‘presumed dead’ batteries.
