Tech Notes
 
NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
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

GPMM3105....CHARGE LEADS, BANANA PLUGS TO BEC CONNECTOR

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.
