This is an IntelliPeak AC/DC Pulse Charger for Charging/Discharging Nickel-Cadmium (NiCd) and Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) Battery Packs.
FEATURES: Peak charges nickel-cadmium and Nickel-metal Hydride batteries using two specialized peak charging technologies, plus discharging and cycling features not commonly found in other chargers. "Negative Delta V" peak detection for NiCds, plus advanced "Zero Delta V" peak detection technology specifically for NiMHs, providing full charges without overcharging. Built-in Artificial Intelligence to eliminate false peaks. Auto-selects peak detection method by identifying cell chemistry. Auto-identifies the quantity of cells being charged. Computerized control, 8-bit 4MHz CPU with 8K ROM, 1K RAM, 1-channel 16-bit analog-to-digital converter. High efficiency P-Channel MOSFET drive transistors. 11-15V DC input. Incredibly small, detachable, 12 volt 7 amp AC power supply with built-in cooling fan for at home use. Output: 4-7 cells on DC, 4-8 cells on AC. Adjustable fast charge current of 0.5-6.5 amps. Pulsed fast charge, with 8-bit pulse width modulated current control output. 100mA trickle charge. Discharge voltage cutoff :2.6volts 10 and 2 amp fixed discharge rates, selectable by switch. Fixed 2.60V discharge cutoff voltage (see COMMENTS). Not designed for discharging A or AA size (and smaller) cells (see COMMENTS). Cycle functions: Select a single discharge/charge cycle for periodic pack conditioning, or continuous "auto-repeat" cycles for reviving batteries that have developed a memory, or for breaking in a new pack. Four multi-function, high intensity LED indicators. Status light glows during charge and flashes when nearing peak. Audible mode select tone signals for easy set-up. Twin built-in miniature fans keep the charger cool, increasing efficiency and lifespan. Reverse polarity and overload protection. Designed to charge sub-C battery pack. One Year Warranty

Fixed discharge cutoff voltage- The IntelliPeak Charger has a fixed discharge cutoff voltage setting of 2.60V. This cutoff voltage is not adjustable. If a specific discharge cutoff value other than 2.60V is desired, monitor the pack voltage during discharge with a separate voltmeter (or the built-in LCD on the IntelliPeak Pulse Charger) and manually terminate discharge at such point as desired.
NiMH Battery Care and Handling: It is important not to allow NiMH batteries to overheat while being charged. Heat can adversely affect the performance of NiMH batteries. The Zero Delta V technology is designed to allow for high rate, 6.5A fast charge without adverse heating of the NiMH battery. If overheating is observed, disconnect the battery from the charger immediately and reduce the charge rate for future charging needs. -Also, Do Not Deep-Cycle NiMH batteries. Permanent damage could result. Store NiMH packs with some voltage remaining on the cells. -Use a NiMH battery pack no more than three cycles per day, with a two to three hour break in-between for cooling. More frequent use is likely to overheat the pack. WARNING: Do Not leave charger unattended during fast charge. If the battery or charger becomes hot at any time, disconnect the battery from the charger immediately. -Do Not charge 4 or 5 cell batteries at a rate greater than 4.5 amps as this could cause excessive heating in the charger itself.
