DC 1–14 Cell Variable Rate
Peak Prediction Charger
Cycle Process (Charge After Discharge)
Step 1. Push the Start/Select button twice and the Pinnacle will beep twice and will begin discharging
the battery. The orange LED will remain on and the red LED will flash. This means the unit has begun the
cycle mode—charge after discharge.
Step 2. After the battery packs are discharged under constant voltage, the charger will beep once and
advance to trickle mode for a short period of time. The orange LED will shut off and the green and red
LED will flash.
Step 3. The charger will beep again and advance into a fast charge mode and only the red LED will
remain on during charging mode.
Step 4. After charging is complete, re-peak once to check charging.
Step 1. Push the Start/Select button three times and the unit will beep three times, indicating discharge
mode. The orange LED will remain on.
Step 2. The battery will start discharging at this point and the discharge current is dependent on the
number of cells (6–7 cells will discharge at about 2–3 amps).
Step 3. When the voltage drops below .9-volt per cell, the discharge process is complete and the unit
will beep once and advance into trickle charge mode.
