CX1P International Single Extra Fast Charger USA, UK, Euro & AU
This Charger works at na Extra Fast rate from any AC wall voltage worldwide and includes plug adapters for most of the world. It charges larger Batteries very fast but is NOT recommended for the smaller sizes of Lumedyne Batteries or Cyclers.
This is the "fastest" charger we offer for any batteries because it is too fast for the smaller ones already. However, some of the biggest batteries take so long to charge, so it's good to have a very fast option.
This is NOT recommended for batteries older than from 2002 with serial number below 149300. If your battery is that old, contact Lumedyne directly.
The CX1P is international so it can run from any wall AC voltage worldwide.
It's small and simple. This is ONLY for use with the larger sizes of NICd and NiMh Batteries NOT for use with HV Cyclers and NOT for any Lithium products.
The CX1P includes four plug adapters that can be interchanged. We test every one with the USA plug before they leave our factory and you can easily exchange it with a simple release button on the base. The other three plugs are for: the United Kingdom with three squarest plugs, the European region with two thin round plugs, or to go down under to NZ or AU where the slanted blades would be used.
The charge plug is attached with a 1+ meter cord and does not interchange. We recommend that you don't wrap the cord tight around the charger when not in use because this puts a lot of unneeded stress on the molded strain-relief. So, either wrap it quite loose or not around the body of the charger at all.
The output of the Charger is about 15 volts under a normal load. The current is close to two amps which is too much for the smaller batteries. The charge plug is center positive. That being said, this is no ordinary power adapter and it does also feature a high current capacity with short circuit protection.
What that means for you is that it will work well with ONLY the large sizes of healthy batteries. If it is plugged into a bad battery that it cannot charge at all, it will blink on and off continuously rather than to fail the way that the classic chargers would when they were attempting to charge a bad battery.
If your old Charger just quit working or quit after getting very hot then the battery killed it, they are not serviceable. This Charger won’t fix a bad battery but at least it will protect itself from failure.
In 2002, we modernized the PEPI circuit inside of the batteries. The serial numbers below 149300 are the Classic “old” variety of PEPI circuits and should NOT be used with this Charger.
By 2008, we were finally able to start selling modern Chargers because the new batteries built since 2002 are fine with all types of chargers. The old Classic Batteries might not stop charging with a new Charger when the green light comes on and that would damage a battery very quickly, maybe even letting the “magic” smoke out. That stinks, literally. So we do NOT recommend using the modern Chargers with the old batteries unless they have been PEPI updated by Lumedyne while getting new battery cells.
THIS CHARGER IS ONLY FOR THE LARGER NICD AND NIMH BATTERIES
