Great Planes ElectriFly PolyCharge4 DC LiPo Charger (large view)
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

REQUIREMENTS

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.

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.
