The Radient Primal Multi-Chemistry charger is a revolution in entry level R/C battery chargers that focuses on simplicity, capability, and safety. Beginning with Safe Start charge initiation sequence, charging your batteries has never been easier or safer. The possibility of starting a charge in the wrong chemistry mode has been virtually eliminated with built-in connection analysis and two button start. The Primal will charge batteries up to 4 Amps but also will reset the charge current back to a 0.5 Amps after a charge cycle, reducing the risk of charging smaller batteries at higher currents. Utilizing Safe Peak technology, the Primal also determines the optimal charging mode to offer both peak detection voltage and balance charging, while optimizing battery life cycle. Additionally, the unique case design reduces the risk of blocked side vents for cooling and maintains stability while operating the charger. No other charger combines the simplicity of AC input, capability of multi-chemistry, and safety of charging LiPo batteries with such style and affordability.
Safe Start Technology helps ensure that a proper charge mode and a safe charge are used for each charge cycle and battery. The charger will not allow charging of LiPo batteries without utilizing the Safe Peak Balancing, nor will it allow you to accidentally charge a NiMH battery in LiPo mode. To keep your batteries from being charged incorrectly, the charger automatically resets the charge current to 0.5A for every charge cycle, ensuring the user selects the proper setting.
Safe Peak technology optimizes the charging modes for each battery. NiCd and NiMH packs are charged to their maximum performance voltage by fully exploiting the delta-peak for each battery, thus helping to preserve longevity. LiPo batteries are balance charged to within 0.05V per cell, helping to prevent the catastrophic failures sometimes seen with other technology.
