The Intellicharger i2 is a universal, automatic smart-charger compatible with almost all types of rechargeable batteries thus eliminating the need to own several chargers. The i2 is able to automatically identify Li-ion, Ni-MH and Ni-Cd rechargeable batteries and apply an appropriate charging mode (Constant Charge Current (CC), Constant Charge Voltage (CV) and Trickle Charge). Each of the i2’s two micro processor-controlled charging slots is capable of monitoring and charging batteries independently. Additionally, yellow and blue power/charging status indicator lights could visibly indicate battery status and charging process.
Buying: We would always advice you to buy batteries in sets of 2 and also use/charge in sets of 2 for optimal performance. Also please do not mix and match the sets. This way you can get the best battery life and performance. If one battery fails for any reason in a set of 2, buy another set and keep the single old battery(s) as a spare. Practice this even for single cell lights.
Charging: Initially do not use your batteries(rechargeable) uncharged even though the batteries come factory charged, they need 4-5 full charging cycles to give you the best performance. Meaning charge them to 100% when you receive them, let them discharge completely when you start using, recharge 100% again, repeat this strictly atleast 4-5 times to make the most from the batteries. Quality batteries will survive a very long time for normal users - meaning till you forget when you bought them. Also make sure you are inserting the +/- sides in the right position, do that the wrong way and you are likely to blow the battery and charger.
Usage: Handle batteries carefully, its easy to break batteries. We will check all batteries before sending them out if they are healthy or not. If they are dead on arrival, do let us know. But if you happen to drop them once from a considerable height like 3-4 feet on the floor, they will most likely die.
