Charger Operating Instructions:

  1. Ensure the charger power cable is plugged securely into the charger (models with a removable cord).
  2. Ensure that the positive and negative charger leads are not near each other and plug charger directly into a functional wall socket.
    Note: Do not plug the charger into power strips, extension cords, or surge protectors as they may interfere with the charger's ability to deliver a full charge cycle.
  3. LED will be Green. This indicates that the charger has power.
    Note: If the LED is red, flashing, flickering or not on at all, discontinue use and contact Dakota Lithium Support.
  4. Clip charger leads to the battery terminals. Red to red (+) and black to black (-).  Or connect the SB50 connector if so equipped.
    Note: Avoid allowing the charger leads to make contact with each other. This may permanently damage the charger.
  5. LED will turn red on charger, indicating that charger is delivering power to the battery.
    Note: If the LED does not turn red once clipped to the battery, use a DC voltmeter to check the output voltage of the charger and battery. If the voltage reading is below the charger specification, contact Dakota Lithium Support.
  6. The LED will turn green when the battery is fully charged. You can now disconnect the charger from the battery.
    Note: Do not leave the charger on fully charged battery for longer than 16-24 hours.
  7. Unplug the charger from the wall and store in a safe area.
