Charging the Battery with the
IMPRES Adaptive Charger – 2 of 8

 You are using the IMPRES Adaptive Charger and IMPRES or SMART Batteries


                            • The battery must be charged before use.

                            •    Memory effect is a phenomenon that causes a loss in battery
                                capacity or voltage due to repetitive shallow discharging or long-
                                term overcharging.

                            • This memory effect has been greatly reduced in your batteries
                              through the use of new cell technology.

                            • It is still recommended, however, that you discharge your battery
                              as much as possible before recharging it.

                            •    Recharging after each shift is good standard practice.

                            • When charging a battery that is attached to your radio, turn the
                              radio off to ensure a full charge.


                                                                                          Continued…

Using the IMPRES Adaptive Charger –
3 of 8


    IMPRES Charger

    •     Monitors the usage pattern of the IMPRES battery and,

    •     Stores that information in the IMPRES battery, then

    •     Performs a recondition cycle only when needed.

    •     Will not overheat the battery regardless of how long it is left in the charger.

    •     Charger monitors the battery and automatically “tops off” the battery, as required.


 NOTE:
 IMPRES batteries may be charged in conventional chargers. However, the Smart Energy features
 will not be enabled.




                                                                                                Continued....

    Using the IMPRES Adaptive Charges
    – Charge Indicator Lights - 4 of 8

Charge Indicator                       Description
Single Flash Green       Charger has successfully powered up.

Steady Red               Battery is in rapid charge mode.

Flashing Green           Battery has completed rapid charge (>90% available capacity). Battery is in Top-Off
                         charge (Trickle Charge) and requires approximately 1 hour.

Steady Green             Battery has completed charging and is fully charged.

Flashing Yellow          Battery is recognized by charger but is waiting to charge. (Either the battery voltage is too
                         low or the battery temperature is too low or too high to allow charging. When this condition
                         is corrected, the battery will begin charging).

Flashing Red             Battery is unchargeable or not making proper contact.

Steady Yellow            Battery is in recondition mode. The length of time the charger remains in this mode is
                         dependent upon the state of charge remaining in the battery when inserted. (Fully charged
                         batteries require more time to recondition–8 hours or more–than fully discharged batteries.)

Flashing Red & Green     Battery may be approaching the end of its rated service life. This is not a fault indication,
                         merely a notification to the user that the battery may soon no longer be able to yield
                         expected service and may need to be replaced.
                                                                                                        Continued....

 Using the IMPRES Adaptive Charges –
 Initial Battery Charge – 5 of 8



    Initial Battery Charge:

    1.     Must be in an IMPRESS Adaptive Charger to properly calibrate the IMPRES battery and enable
           the Smart Energy features. This process is indicated by a STEADY YELLOW indicator light.

    2.     The process is automatic and includes an initial reconditioning and then begins charging upon
           completion of this process.

    3.     To ensure optimum performance prior to the initial use, all new batteries should be left in the
           charger until the light turns solid green.

    4.     If this process is interrupted, the charger will calibrate the battery upon the next insertion.




NOTE:
New batteries (never used before) may prematurely indicate a full charge (STEADY GREEN indication).



                                                                                                        Continued....

Automatic & Manual Reconditioning – 6 of 8


Automatic Reconditioning of the Battery:

When the IMPRES battery is properly inserted into the charger, the charger determines if it is appropriate to
recondition the battery. If the battery needs reconditioning, the charger automatically indicates a STEADY
YELLOW. This process may take up to 8 hours or more to complete, depending upon the state of
charge and capacity rating of the battery when inserted.

NOTE: It important that the battery be allowed to complete the recondition/recharge process for it to be
      effective. Leave the battery in the charger until the charger indicates a STEADY GREEN.


Manual Reconditioning of the Battery:

Within 2 ½ minutes of the initial insertion of an IMPRES battery (STEADY RED indication), remove and
       reinsert the battery within 5 seconds to manually force reconditioning to occur. The charger indicator
       changes from a STEADY RED to a STEADY YELLOW. This forces the charger to recondition and
       automatically recharge the battery.

NOTE: Excessive use of this feature reduces the cycle life of the battery.


                                                                                                   Continued....

 Manually Terminating Reconditioning – 7 of 8

Manually Terminating Reconditioning:
     At any time during the reconditioning process (STEADY YELLOW indication), remove and reinsert the
     battery within 5 seconds. This causes the charger to terminate the reconditioning process and begin
     the charging process. The charger indicator changes to a STEADY RED.

NOTE:
     The conditioning charge feature creates an audible “ticking” sound in the receiving radio during the rapid
     and trickle charge modes of operation. This sound is caused by periodic discharge pulses to the battery.
     Changing the switch position located on the bottom of the charger from position “A” to position “B”
     reduces the frequency of the discharge pulses. This has a minimal impact on the effectiveness of the
     charger.

     Toward the end of the rapid charge cycle (STEADY RED indication), the battery voltage exceeds the
     normal operating voltage of the radio. Voltage returns to a normal level following the rapid charge mode
     or when the battery is removed from the charger.

     If the radio is turned on while the charger is in rapid charge mode, the radio becomes temporarily
     inoperable. This condition can be cleared by removing the radio from the charger and turning the radio off
     and on again.

     During the reconditioning process, the battery becomes fully discharged. As a result, the radio may not
     function during reconditioning mode.

                                                                                                   Continued....

– Special Features - 8 of 8



  Special Features:

  1.     If the IMPRES battery is charged for > 2 ½ minutes, the IMPRES Adaptive Charger retains
         the serial number of the IMPRES battery.

  2.     The battery can be removed from the charger for up to 30 minutes.

  3.     Once the battery is reinserted back into the charger, it will resume the charging process from that
         point when the battery was first removed.

Universal Connector Cover


                                 The universal connector cover protects the side
                                 connector near the antenna.

                                 To remove the cover:
                                 1. Turn the radio off.

                                 2. Carefully insert a flat-bladed screwdriver between the
                                    bottom of the cover and the connector.

                                 3. Holding the top of the cover with your thumb, push the
                                    screwdriver gently downward and lever the cover away
                                    from the radio.


                                 To install the cover:
                                 1. Turn the radio off.
