FEATURES
  • Four independant outputs—like having four chargers in one!
  • Carge up to four 4-cell LiPo packs simultaneously
  • Input voltage boost to handle 3 and 4-cell packs with ease
  • Set teh battery capacity on each output with an adjustment dial, 300mAh to 3000mAh
  • Charge current sets automatically, based on the battery mAh seelction (300mA to 3000mA)
  • Automatically detects the number of cells on each output—no switch to set
  • Pushbutton start for each output
  • Uses the constant-current/constant-voltage charge technique for each output
  • Each output has a built-in 3 hour safety timer
  • Tri-color LED and audible indicatore sfor each output indicates charge status, as well as for improper input voltage, output reverse polarity, open-circuit, and more
  • Built-in fan keeps carger cool for efficient operation and extended lifetime
  • Rugged metal case for durability
  • Reverse polarity and current overload protection on input (20A spade fuse included)
  • 12V DC only input
  • Does not include charge leads
  • This charger requires a power supply.

Capable of charging 4 separate lithium-polymer packs simultaneously, the PolyCharge4 charger is specially designed for todays electric flight modeler. Adjustable capacities from 300 to 3000mAh, tri-color LED indicators and ease of use make this a must-have item! Audio sound cues indicate charge completion and errors, while each individual ports status can be read at a glance by the LED

Do not use this charger with NiCd, NiMH or Lithium Ion batteries

VENDOR TECHNOTES
                    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
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.

SPECS: General Specifications:
Input Voltage: 12-15V DC
Number of Outputs: 4
Input Connectors: Alligator clips, hard-wired directly to charger
Case Size: 8.2" x 1.5" x 5" (208x38x126mm)
Weight: 21.8oz (617g)

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.
