Be EXTREMELY careful to choose the correct voltage settings based on the cells and chemistry of the battery being charged. Failure to do so may result in battery damage, explosion, or fire!

CONFIRMING CHARGE CURRENT

It is critically important to understand the maximum charging current for the battery pack to be charged. Excessive charge current can significantly reduce the life of a battery, or in severe cases a fire or explosion.

The charge and discharge current of a lithium battery is determined by its “C” rating. Most batteries indicate the C rating of the pack on the main label. Multiply the C rating of the battery pack by the capacity to determine the safe and proper charge current. For example, a 1000mAh battery with a 5C rating means that the maximum charge rate should be 1000 (capacity in milliamps) X 5 (C rating) = 5,000mAh. Therefore, the maximum charge rate for a 1000mAh 5C lithium battery should be 5A (5,000mAh).

If it is not possible to determine the C rating, please assume that the pack is 1C and use that value to calculate a safe charge rate. Keep in mind that batteries vary, and therefore charging times will vary.

TASK SETTINGS

Power on the charger and connect a battery, the charger will enter into the standby page, then short press the roller wheel to activate the program setting menu. The items in the menu are as follows:

Battery Select battery chemistry
Cells Select number of battery pack cells
Mode Work mode: Charge / Discharge / Storage / Ext.DISC
Current Select desired charge current (0.1-16.0A), discharge current (0.1-3.0A)/Ext.discharge(0.1-15.0A)
TVC Terminal voltage control
Start Begin process
Back Return to previous screen or function

The default mode of the HERAKLES NEO is series charging, therefore you must connect the output wires to the battery pack that you wish to charge. For lithium packs, it is highly recommended to ALWAYS connect the balance leads and utilize balance charging. Although the HERAKLES NEO will charge without the balance function, a warning tone will sound to alert you that the balance connector is not in use.

  • Storage
    When selecting the storage function, the HERAKLES NEO will automatically begin charging if the battery pack voltage is below the ideal storage voltage. Likewise, the HERAKLES NEO will automatically enter the discharge mode if the battery pack voltage is higher than the ideal storage voltage.
  • Restoring an excessively discharged lithium battery pack
    If the HERAKLES NEO detects internal cell voltages that are too low to safely begin the charging process, it will automatically default to a 0.1A charge rate until the voltage has risen to a level that allows it to safely accept a fast charge rate.

CONFIRMING CHARGE CURRENT

  • Measuring Internal Resistance
    The HERAKLES NEO features the ability to monitor the internal resistance of each cell in a lithium battery pack. This feature is only operational when in the balance charging mode. Internal resistance can be use ful to determine the overall “health” and performance of a lithium battery, the closer the IR values are between the cells in the battery pack, the better that the battery will deliver its energy.
    NOTE: The process of charging a lithium battery is dynamic, therefore you will notice fluctuations in both charge current and IR during the charging process.

WORKING PARAMETERS DISPLAY

Rotating the roller wheel up or down during charging will switch the information displayed on the lower half of the LCD screen between cell voltage, cell IR and working parameters. Cell voltage and IR can only be displayed during the balance charging process.

Max Input Power: When the input power can not reach the charger`s maximum working power requirement (700W), to ensure stable and safe operation of the HERAKLES NEO, this value should be adjusted according to the input power source used for the charger. For example, when using a 20V/20A DC power supply, this value should be set to 400W (P=U X I).

Min Input Power: When the user takes a battery as the input power source, this setting can protect the battery from being over-discharged. When the charger detects an input voltage lower than the setting value, then the charger will stop the current task and remind the user with showing” DC IN TOO LOW”. For example, when using a 6S LiPo as a power source, we can set this value at 21.0V to protect the battery from being overdischarged.

SYSTEM SETTINGS MENU

Volume: When setting the buzzer volume to OFF, the operation sound will be shielded, but the error sound will not be shielded.

Power distribution: The total AC input power is 300W, the default power for each channel is 150W. The user can adjust the power for CH1 and CH2, the total power CH1+CH2=300W.

EXTERNAL DISCHARGE FUNCTION

HERAKLES NEO increases the function of external discharge to meet the users` demand for high-power discharging of batteries, HERAKLES NEO connected to an external discharger UP-D200 can achieve 200W discharge power, greatly improving the battery discharge speed and saving time.
Meanwhile, compared with the traditional discharger, the HERAKLES NEO has a balancing discharge function, which can effectively avoid single cell overdischarge, which will be safer safely and more reliable.

MOTOR TESTING FUNCTION

Motor Testing: Adjust the pulse width value of the ESC control signal, in order to adjust the Motor’s RPM value. According to RPM value and KV value to detect if the motor works well.

SERVO TESTING FUNCTION

Servo testing: By adjusting and changing the pulse width, it can be detected if the servo’s direction and angle are normal.

WIRELESS CHARGING FUNCTION

Supporting Mobile Phones: iPhone X iPhone XS Samsung S8 Huawei P30 Pro Xiaomi 9 etc.

WARNINGS AND ERROR MESSAGES

  • Error Message for Abnormal Battery Connection
    Unplug and re-connect all plugs to ensure proper connection and polarity. Check to make sure that all connectors are free of dirt, grease, or oxidation.
  • Error Message for Unstable Input Voltage
    Make certain that the battery socket is free from dirt or oxidation. Make sure that the Max Input Voltage is set correctly in the System menu.
