With an implemented back-light in the large LCD screen, the readout function is enabled in the dark, giving you the possibility to use the charger at any place and at any time.
Large LCD Display Screen
A large LCD screen provides clear, accurate, and precise display of the charging status. The USB output and DC 12V input display charge mode provide a clear insight into the way in which the charging mode is used to charge your professional battery. With an implemented backlight, the readout function is enabled in the dark.
Dual Bay Charging Option
The charger have possibility to charge One or Two Batteries Simultaneously in the same time. Intelligent Control MCU can automatically identify the voltage and number of Batteries that is put on the charger, going intelligent charge when being charging, and prevent overcharge, depending if you chose Boost or standard charging mod on Boost push button.
Intelligent charging systems integrate the control systems within the charger and the electronics within the battery to allow precision control over the charging process. As a safety precaution with high-capacity batteries, a pre-charging stage is used. The charging cycle is initiated with a low current. If there is no corresponding rise in the battery voltage, it indicates that there is possibly a short circuit in the battery (zero volt activation). Constant current/constant voltage (CC/CV) charging mode is an effective way to charge lithium batteries. When a lithium battery is nearly empty, we take constant current to charge it. Charger CPU automatically adjusts charging current to be lower than the max charging current that the battery can accept. With constant charging, the voltage of the battery rises slowly until it reaches a maximum voltage at which point the charger switches the charging method to “constant voltage” and reduces the charging current. When the battery is fully charged, this state is stopped.
Boost Charging Mode
Boost Charging Push button provide HIGH speed Charging Mode. In High speed charging Mode, charger provide 1.5A current Power per one battery Slot or 0.8A per two Battery Slots. In standard Charging Mode the current power is 1A per one slot and 0.5A per two slots. When Boost Charging mode is active it will be displayed (with boost charge ico) on the Charger LCD Display, in this charging mod, you can faster charge your battery pack, that will safe you time, when you need it, on the field.
The circuit in the battery pack has multiple protections: abnormal current protection, voltage protection, short circuit protection, and overheating protection. This allows for the battery to have a longer operational life and a safer use for professional purposes.
No Memory Effect
Hedbox batteries provide the advantages of lithium-ion, meaning it can be charged or discharged at anytime without developing a memory effect. This means the battery never loses its ability to hold a full charge.
Hedbox batteries are fully in compliance with European Union RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) regulations and are 100% free of lead, cadmium, and mercury. Hedbox products take part in actively protecting the environment and preserving the highest standards of environmental protection
Please note this charger is fitted with plates for Sony BP-U type batteries – it will not work with any other model of battery.
