Inspired Energy CH5050 2 Bay Smart Battery Calibrator And Charger
The Inspired Energy CH5050 2 Bay Smart Battery Calibrator And Charger, is a standalone unit which provides the capability to carry out simultaneous charging and fuel gauge calibration on any two “N-Series” Inspired Energy batteries at the same time.
The CH5050 works with every smart, standard Li Ion and NiMH battery in the Inspired Energy “N-Series” portfolio irrespective of size, shape, voltage, or capacity. – So you can recharge a 12V NiMH battery while recalibrating the fuel gauge on a 3.6V Li Ion battery if you wish.
With its multi-voltage power supply, the CH5050 works throughout the world. Variants are available for use in North America (CH5050A) Europe (CH5050E), the UK (CH5050U).
Smart battery packs have a highly accurate on board fuel gauge. Under certain operational conditions this fuel gauge may drift and begin to lose accuracy. The onboard battery electronics keep a log of this drift and the CH5050 reads this value from the smart battery when the battery is inserted.
If fuel gauge recalibration is recommended by the charger (indicated by a flashing red LED), the user can press the button on the front of the CH5050 to initiate a recalibration cycle.
To recalibrate the fuel gauge & charge to 100%:
Place the battery into the slot & press the recalibrate button. When the blue LED stops flashing & remains solid, calibration is complete & the battery will be fully charged. Note: recalibration times are long. Do not remove the battery part way through or the process will need to re-start
A special version: CH5050CAL is available which will adjust the battery state of charge to 30% for Shipping under IATA Packing Instruction 965
Operation of the CH5050CAL is as follows:
To set the battery state of charge at ≤30% for shipping:
Place the battery into the slot. The battery state of charge will be automatically adjusted (by charging or discharging). When the green LED stops flashing & remains solid, the battery is at ≤30% SoC.
