Connecting the charging leads with C3LP Lipoly charger

Hi Friends,

This is the Supplements for the manual of GWS C3-LP Lipoly Charger.

Warning : Users need to take great care for the following instructions when using the enclosed ''balance charging leads'' with this C3-LP (GWCHG004) Lipoly Charger. Never leave the charging Lipoly battery pack with the charger unattended during charging.

1. Be sure to connect the enclosed “balance charging leads” with the Lipoly battery pack correctly. The 7.4V leads, with white 3-pin plug, is for 2-cell 7.4V Lipoly battery pack, while the 11.1V leads, with white 4-pin plug, is for 3-cell 11.1V Lipoly battery pack. The JST red 2-pin plug is for connecting with the Lipoly battery pack. The wrong connections with the Lipoly battery pack and this charger will cause overcharging or even explosion and fire.

2. Be sure to plug ONE of the two balance charging leads, the 7.4V with 3-pin plug one or the 11.1V with 4-pin plug one into this charger ONLY during each charging. Make sure to EITHER plug the 3-pin plug into the 3 pin port/socket, OR plug the 4-pin plug into the 4-pin port/socket of this charger. Never plug both of these two leads / plugs into this charger during charging. Otherwise, there will be overcharging issue or even explosion and fire.

3. Do not connect any ruined, short circuit inside, Lipoly battery pack with this charger directly or indirectly.

It'd be much better to connect the lipoly battery pack with this charger directly without using any of the enclosed balance charging leads. Use the enclosed "Balance Charging Lead" ONLY when the plug of the Lipoly battery pack does not fit this charger, and make sure you have followed these instructions thoroughly.

There'd be no this issue at all if your Lipoly battery pack was also with 3-pin (7.4V) or 4-pin (11.1V) leads/plug, you just plug the plug into this C3LP Lipoly charger for charging. But never plug both 7.4V and 11.1V ones into this charger. Its manual has stated the same already.

Would you contact service@gws.com.tw if you do not understand this issue.
