Save these instructions: this manual contains important safety & operating 





Working in the vicinity of lead-acid batteries is dangerous. Batteries generate explosive gases 
during normal battery operation. It is therefore of the utmost importance that each time you 
are preparing to use the BatteryMate you first read & follow exactly the instructions provided. 
To reduce the risk of explosion, follow these instructions & those marked on the battery. 
Never smoke or allow  an open spark or flame near the battery or the vehicle's engine. 
Charge only 12 Volt lead-acid batteries. Do not use to supply power to an extra low-voltage 
electrical system nor to charge dry-cell batteries. Charging dry-cell batteries may cause them 
to b urst resulting in injury to persons & damage to property. Never charge a frozen battery.  






When charging watercraft batteries, always remove battery onto shore for charging. If


it is 

necessary to remove battery from vehicle to charge, always remove GROUNDED terminal 
from battery first. Make sure all accessories in the vehicle are off, so as not to cause an arc. 
Be sure area around battery is well ventilated while being charged. Forcefully blow away 
any fumes that have or may accumulate. Clean battery terminals. Study all battery 
manufacturers specific precautions such as removing or not removing cell caps while 
charging and recommended rates of charge. Add distilled water in each cell until battery 
acid reaches level specified by battery manufacturer. Do not overfill. For a battery without 
cell caps, carefully follow manufacturer’s recharging instructions. Determine the nominal 
voltage of the battery by


referring to information printed on the battery, or by examining 

owner’s manual of vehicle/equipment in which battery is or is to be installed.  

WARNING: DO NOT attempt to charge a battery of which the nominal voltage differs 
from the battery voltage for which the charger is intended; see data on label attached 
to charger.  





Position the battery charger on a sturdy, flat surface. DO NOT place charger directly above 
or below battery being charged. The gases from the battery are corrosive and will damage 
the charger. DO NOT allow battery acid to drip onto charger during filling or checking 
gravity. Acid contamination will destroy charger or cause it to operate incorrectly. DO NOT 
place battery or any object on top of charger. Place the battery as far away from the charger 
as the cord permits during charging. DO NOT place charger in a small, fully enclosed space. 
Ensure adequate ventilation. DO NOT expose charger to water, rain or snow.  






Connect the battery charger to the battery before connecting to AC mains power socket. 
First connect to UNGROUNDED post of the battery, then GROUNDED post. The BLACK 
clip on the battery charger output lead must be connected to NEGATIVE (NEG, N, -) post 
and the RED clip to POSITIVE (POS, P, +) post of the battery. When connecting the fina l 
clip, position yourself as far away from the battery as practically possible - then connect to 
post while facing away from the battery.

The battery charger has an automatic safety feature that will prevent it from 

operating if the battery has been inversely connected and will indicate the inverse 
connection by


illuminating the "INVERSE POLARITY" LED (light emitting diode), situated on 

the lower left-hand side of the LED indicator information panel. If


this LED is indicating, 

disconnect the battery clips in reverse order to the connecting instructions above, then 
reconnect correctly. When connections to the battery have been made, connect to AC 
mains power conforming the input voltage given on the label attached to the charger. 
Always disconnect following the reverse sequence of the connection procedure, breaking 
the first connection while facing away & at arm's length from the battery. NOTE: Do not 
allow battery clips to touch one another.  




When charging a battery which is installed in a vehicle; take special care in positioning AC 
and DC cords away from the hood, doors or moving engine parts that can pinch or damage 
the cords. Before connecting battery charger to battery, establish if the POSITIVE (POS, P, 
RED,+) terminal, normally the larger post on the battery, is grounded or if the NEGATIVE 
(NEG, N,  -) terminal is grounded to the vehicle chassis. (in most vehicles the NEGATIVE 
terminal is grounded). It is advisable to remove the grounded terminal from battery before 

DO NOT connect battery charger clips to any part of the vehicle other than to the 
battery posts or terminals. NEVER connect a battery clip to a carburettor fuel line or 
sheet-metal body parts.  

Make sure all accessories in the vehicle are off, so as not to cause an arc. 



. DO NOT operate vehicle whilst connecting or 

disconnecting battery charger or battery, or during charging.

Instructions for use:  
IMPORTANT: Read the whole of this text before using the 





A mounting bracket is included for fixing against a vertical surface so as to allow the 
BatteryMate to be positioned off the  workbench. Ensure that the bracket is firmly fixed so 
that the surface of the long arm projects horizontally and safely supports a downward 
force of 10 kg applied at the projecting end. Screws supplied with brackets should be 
used for securely attaching the charger to the bracket through the smaller of the holes in 
the longer bracket arm, when the charger is correctly located on the bracket. 


Mount the bracket in a position that allows batteries to he charged to be distanced 
as far as possible from th e BatteryMate & NOT


directly above or below it.  




This device is provided with an input voltage selector in the fuse drawer at the appliance 
power cord inlet receptacle. The voltage for which the selector is set is displayed in an 
aperture on the fuse drawer, which is located just above the power cord inlet receptacle. 
Rated mains input voltages of 230, 115 or 100 Volts can be selected. Normally the 
voltage for which the BatteryMate is set up should conform with the national standard 
mains voltage of the country of purchase.  


Disconnect the power cord and remove from the device. With a miniature screwdriver or 
similar tool, prise open the fuse drawer. Then remove the pale coloured insert on which 
the voltage selections are printed, rotate and replace it so that the correct input voltage 
is visible through the aperture. Replace the fuse drawer. Make sure it is closed. If a fuse 
blows, replace only with the same fuse type and rating as the original fuse. 




Batteries emit 

EXPLOSIVE GASES – prevent flames or sparks near batteries.

as far as practicable. PROTECT 






 Disconnect AC power supply before making or breaking battery connections. 

Battery acid is highly corrosive. Wear protective clothing and avoid contact. In case of 
accidental contact wash immediately with soap and water. Check that the battery posts 
are not loose. If they are, have the battery professionally assessed. If the battery posts 
are corroded clean with a copper wire brush; if greasy or dirty, clean with a rag damped 
in detergent. Only use the 


if the input & output leads and clamps are in 

good, undamaged condition.

BatteryMate combines in one single tool a LOAD TESTER for 12 V lead-acid batteries to 
accurately assess their state of charge and their underlying condition; a precisely 
controlled, state -of-the -art constant current CHARGER for the quickest technically 
achievable recharging of all 12 V lead-acid batteries regardless of type or condition; and 
the automatic assessment & RECOVERY of deep-discharged & even of many sulphated 
batteries. This is achieved by dual-stage constant current, then constant voltage 
charging during which the voltage and current are precisely monitored. The precise 
voltage-sensing monitor averages repetitive voltage samplings to erase false peaks, so 
as to accurately control the termination of the rapid constant current charging phase as 
also the automatic recovery action for batteries reluctant to accept a charge.  



Always TEST the battery FIRST, before charging, unless the battery is already too 
severely discharged to sustain a load test (see below). It is a waste of time to charge a 
battery which is internally damaged and therefore unable to adequately deliver the 
required starting current for long enough to start. A battery may be fully charged and yet 
unable to start the vehicle. On the other hand, a battery which has been unused for 
some time or which has been subjected to a continuous discharge for too long may have 
become deep-discharged or even sulphated, although it's basic status prior to  this was 
good. By load testing such batteries, once they


have been sufficiently recharged to 

sustain a test, one can establish whether complete re-charging will result in a usable 
battery in practice. If the battery is too severely discharged to sustain the indicated load 
test, then some recharging will be required before testing.  
Always TEST the battery AGAIN after charging it, to confirm that the battery will be 
capable of starting. A "fully charged" battery is not necessarily GOOD.  
BatteryMate's two separate functions: the TESTER & the CHARGER are further 
explained below.  


BatteryMate is very well protected against errors of operation and it is nearly impossible 
to damage it by operator error. Similarly, the operator uses BatteryMate with the 
absolute minimum of risk. However, please observe the cautions and warnings 
contained in these instructions.  

1)  Incorrect AC mains input, for example an input of 230 V to a BatteryMate intended for 

115 VAC input, will cause the fuse contained in the input power receptacle to blow, refer 

2)  In case of incorrect (inverse polarity) battery connections, the Tester & Charger are both 

disabled and an audible and visible warning LED will be activated. The warning LED is 
just below the range selector knob (red cap). Correct the connections & proceed.  

3)  In case of accidental short-circuiting of the clamps, the BatteryMate will be disabled, no 

fuses will blow, and sparks are automatically suppressed. Correct the short-circuit 
condition as soon as possible and proceed.  


background image


4)  In case of overheating, for example through heavy repetitive use of the load tester, the 

tester will be disabled. The action will be restored automatically after the BatteryMate 
has had time to cool down again. Duri ng the period of disablement this is indicated by 
the red LED on the control panel above the "egg-timer" symbol. The LED may continue 
to indicate temporary disablement for up to 20 minutes in case of severe heating.  

5)   In the period immediately following every load test carried out, the tester is disabled for 

up to 60 seconds (see below) to allow tester and battery to cool. Again the "egg-timer" 
LED will indicate the disablement and any subsequent test can be conducted only when 
it extinguishes. 

6)  Should for any reason the red LED above the load resistor symbol light when a load test 

(of 3s or 15s as selected) is NOT actually in progress, disconnect the battery 
immediately and send the BatteryMate to the distributor for checking. This may be a sign 
that the contacts of one of the relays controlling the test current selection are sticking 
during operation.  

7)  If all else fails, the BatteryMate is further protected by internal fuses which should only 

be replaced by qualified personnel.  



1)  The battery to be tested must be removed from the vehicle and from all electrical 

connections. For batteries with filler caps check that these are correctly in place. Check 
that the battery posts are clean, free of oxidation build-up & not loose.  

2)  Establish the  Ampère-hour capacity (normally the " 10 hour" or "20 hour" rating) of the 

battery and select the appropriate range according to the selection table on the decal 
above the control panel. If you do not know the Ah rating of the battery but do know the 
rated "Cold Cranking Ampère" rating (at 0°F or  –18°C), select the range whereby the 
test current indicated for that range is roughly half the "CCA" current of the battery to be 
tested. If neither the Ah rating nor the "CCA" rating are known, consult the battery 
supplier or distributors. If all else fails, look for another starter battery of similar type or 
dimensions whose ratings are marked on the casing to obtain a rough idea of the rating 
of the battery to be tested. Select the range accordingly. The rotary range selector is the 
knob with the red cap on the left side of the control panel.  

3)  Connect the red battery clamp to the positive (+) or red battery post, the black clamp to 

the negative (-) or black post.  

4)  Connect the BatteryMate to an AC input of the correct rated voltage, switch ON the main 

switch next to the input connection cable.  


5)  The yellow LED marked "3s" (next to the range selector knob) should light.  


6)  Start the test by depressing and releasing the TEST push-button beneath the "3s" LED. 

The red LED above the load resistor symbol will light for 3s during the test. A load test of 


background image


15 second test duration may be initiated by depressing the TEST button for a good three 
seconds, until the yellow " 15s" LED lights, then releasing it. The red LED above the load 
resistor symbol should light for 15s during the 15s test.  

7)  Immediately the red LED above the load resistor symbol indicates a test has begun, look 

at the LEDs on the TEST Voltmeter LED panel to the right of the TEST start button to 
see how many ha ve come on.  

8)  If all ten LEDS (or at least nine) light and remain on during the test, the battery is 

sufficiently charged and able to sustain starting load for at least the duration of the test. 
This indicates a GOOD battery.  

9)  If 7 to 10 LEDS indicate momentarily just as the test begins, but the LEDs then 

progressively and rapidly extinguish, the battery is significantly discharged.  

10) During the test, the approximate charging time required to restore the battery to a 

starting condition can be read off the  two time scales above (ambient temperatures 
exceeding 15°C/60°F) and below (colder ambients) the Test Voltmeter LEDS. The 
approximate required charging time is that indicated above (or below if colder than 
15°C/60°F) the highest LED which lights (the furthest to the right).  

11) If the battery is severely discharged, it is possible that it lacks sufficient power to register 

on the test scale. If after depressing & releasing the TEST button the red LED "Charge 
min 4h" lights, it is necessary to first charge the battery for at least 4 hours, at the charge 
current indicated for that battery on the range selection table on the decal above the 
control panel. (See step 2 above). A TEST should then be conducted.  

12) Testing involves the withdrawal of significant energy from the battery which must then be 

dissipated in the form of heat. Following each test the tester wilI be disabled for a period 
to allow the tester and the battery to cool, thus avoiding potential damage to either by 
immediate and repetitive re -testing. The periods of disablement are 20 seconds following 
a 3s test and 60 seconds following a 15s test. Disabled periods are indicated by the red 
LED above the egg-timer symbol.  

13) After charging a battery for the indicated charge time it is 





battery to determine if it has achieved a starting capability. During this re-TEST:  

a)  if at least nine LEDs light at the beginning of the test and remain on until the end of the 

test, the battery should be capable of sustaining the starting load for at least the 
duration of the test, indicating a GOOD serviceable battery.  

b)  if the number of LEDs which light immediately the TEST begins decrease by more than 

two LEDs during a 3s test or by more than four LEDs during a 15s test, the battery may 
well have a  degree of internal damage. Set the timer to at least the charging time 
indicated by the highest LED on at the end of the TEST, and charge the battery again. 
Then TEST again. If the TEST result is again similar to that described above, the 
battery is unserviceable.  


background image


14) If during a TEST following recharging the LEDs which light initially then extinguish 

rapidly, the battery is clearly unserviceable. 


If for any reason you observe overheating and perhaps even smoke coming out of the 
top having initiated a load test, switch off the power & disconnect the battery 
immediately, as this is symptomatic of a mechanically stuck relay. Send the 
BatteryMate in for checking.  




1)  The charge time selector is the knob with the yellow cap. Around it are marked the 

possible charge time selections, from 30 minutes (new battery) by half-hour to three 
hours, then by hour to 6 hours.  

2)  Select the charging time indicated during the test if you only wish to restore the battery 

to a state of charge normally sufficient to start the engine. 

3)  If you wish to charge the battery more thoroughly, and have sufficient time, set the timer 

to 6 hours.  

4)  Should the battery come to full charge before the selected time has elapsed, the voltage 

sensing circuitry will limit the charging voltage so as to just maintain the battery at full 
charge until the timer switches off the charger. There is absolutely no danger of 
overcharging the battery.  

5)  The elapsed charging time will be indicated progressively on the elapsed time (yellow) 

LED panel to the right of the time selection knob. When the timer switches off the 
charger, the duration of charging will continue to be displayed on this LED panel until the 
battery is disconnected or re-tested or re-charged, or until the AC electrical input is 
disconnected. Either of these actions will re-set the time elapsed LED panel to "zero".  

6)  The 4 LEDs just above the time elapsed LED panel indicate the status of the battery 

under charge. See clause 6 of "Charger Operation" below. These status indicator LEDs 
also continue to display the state of charge achieved until the battery is disconnected or 
re-tested, or until the AC input is disconnected.  



The 4-LED panel is only a convenient indication of 



status. It should not be relied on as a diagnosis  of battery condition, for which a final load 
test is essential. Batteries with certain types of defects may cause misleading indications 
on this 4-LED panel. In doubtful or confusing cases, do one or more 15 second load 
tests on the battery to check for "suspect" condition. If necessary, charge again & re -

8)  Do not alter the timer setting during charging, as the charger will automatically be 

disabled. In such cases, re-test the battery and re-commence charging accordingly.

1)  Maintenance-free "MF" motor-cycle batteries, also referred to as “AGM” (Absorbent Glass 

Mat) batteries) or as “GRT” (Gas Recombination Technolo gy) batteries, are valve -
regulated and are constructed with glass-mat separators (to effectively absorb and retain 
the acid electrolyte). They have important differences from "flooded" (with filler caps) & 
other types of lead-acid batteries. These differences significantly affect the correct method 
of charging "MF" motorcycle batteries. Automobile starter batteries marketed as 
"Maintenance-Free" are not usually constructed with glass-mat separators, & should not 
be charged on the BatteryMate’s “MF” charging selection.  


2)  The internal glass fibre separators leave less space for the battery acid than in 

"conventional" batteries without these separators. The electrochemical nature of "MF" 
batteries, is rather different from "other" lead-acid batteries as a result of these factors, 
and they are not only more powerful than other batteries of similar dimensions, but also 
retain starting power at very low temperatures far better than other batteries.   


3)  The dilute sulphuric acid electrolyte in motorcycle “MF” batteries is often more 

concentrated (denser) than the battery acid sold at auto chains & service shops. For this 
reason the acid for dry-charged “MF” batteries is delivered in a separate special pack with 
the battery. “Wet” “MF” batteries are filled with special acid and charged at the factory. 


4)  To prepare dry-charged “MF” batteries, the acid must be allowed to trickle into the battery 

at its own speed and the battery must then be allowed to stand for at least 20 minutes to 
allow acid absorption & reaction before being sealed with the sealing cap strip provided. 
Before being sealed any trapped air bubbles must be released by tapping the battery a 
few times. The battery has now achieved about 70% of it’s full electrical capacity. Before a 
new battery in this state is installed in the vehicle it should be brought to full charge on the 
BatteryMate using the 'new’ battery setting (30 minutes). Such batteries have a kind of 
memory effect in that if subjected to the full charge current from the vehicles’ charging 
system  before being given this pre-charge, the batteries tend to get “blocked” at about 
75% of potential capacity thereafter. These “dry-charged” MF motorcycle batteries are 
generally type-designated “YTX” or “YTL” or “YTH” if from Yuasa, with the “Y” replaced by 
another letter if from another manufacturer.  

5)  “WET” valve -regulated MF motorcycle batteries are filled with acid and pre -charged by the 

battery manufacturer. This has the advantage that the battery vendor or retailer does not 
have to perform this task so the customer does not have to wait as is the case when dry-
charged batteries have to be prepared. Wet “MF” batteries have the disadvantage that the 
self-discharge period is always greatly extended due to the transport distribution & 
warehousing before the retailer gets to sell the battery to the user. It is therefore essential 
for the vendor or retailer to re -charge these batteries before delivery to the user. In spite of 
great recent improvement in the ability of batteries to retain their charge over time, due to 
the prolonged interval between factory-commissioning of the battery & it’s sale to the user, 
it is possible that the battery has already self-discharged significantly.  

6)  Fully charged “Dry-charged” MF batteries such as the YTX types should measure 13,15 V 

across the terminals at 25°C. “WET” types of MF batteries typically have charged terminal 
voltages around 12,85 V & flooded batteries around 12,65 V. Logically, the charging 
voltage of dry-charged MF batteries therefore needs to be higher. The appropriate voltage 
is not achievable with "conventional" vehicle battery chargers.  



background image


7)  Properly commissioned "MF" batteries retain their charge during storage better than 

conventional batteries. This is especially the case with most of the recent new “WET” MF 
batteries. However, if left for excessive time without being re-charged, they tend to go into 
deep-discharge from which they are often very difficult to recover unless subjected to 
relatively high voltages. This level of applied voltage is only achievable by chargers such 
as BatteryMate which use the principle of "constant current". This means that the voltage 
is controlled and varied according to the reluctance or otherwise of the battery to accept a 
charge, so in "difficult" cases, the charger simply increases, (up to a specific & safe limit) 
the applied voltage until the reluctance of the battery is eventually overcome and the 
charge can be made to enter the battery, thus recovering it.  


8)  The “MF” push-button selector beside the symbol of the black battery inscribed "MF", 

increases the voltage level at which the constant current charging stage is terminated from 
14,5 V for most other batteries to 16,9 V for dry-charged MF batteries, see table below. 


9)  Push the “MF” button after pushing the charge button only when charging dry-charged MF 

motorcycle batteries (those delivered with separate special acid packs, typically type-
labelled "YTX-", "YTL-", “YTH-”  for Yuasa, or with the Y substituted by “C” or “G” for 
example, for some other manufacturers. For WET “MF ” batteries & all other batteries, or if 
in doubt, do NOT push the MF button.

1)  Before starting, it is important to establish whether or not the battery you are about to 

charge is an "MF" battery of the type described above, or another type of 12 V lead-acid 
battery. Do not attempt to charge any battery other than a 12 V lead-acid battery.  Refer 
to the previous section. If in doubt, do NOT push the MF button. 

2)  Make sure the range selector setting (knob with the red cap on the left of the control 

panel) is correct for the battery to be charged, according to the selection table. Sealed 
deep cycle or trolling type batteries, often called "SLA", require a lower charge current 
than those indicated on the range selection table for the relevant Amp-hour battery 


background image


capacity. The selections given on the range selection table  are appropriate for starter 
type batteries. A charge current of about half the charge current indicated for that Amp-
hour capacity should be OK for sealed deep cycle or trolling batteries. 

3)  Depress and release the "CHARGE" push-button.  

4)  If, and only if, charging an "MF" battery of one of the appropriate types described above, 

depress and release the push-button next to the "MF" black battery symbol below the 
"CHARGE" button. When the charger stops for whatever reason, the "MF" mode 
selection wilI automatically re-set to "Non-MF" mode. This is for safety reasons. Thus it 
is necessary to re-select the "MF" charge mode each time one starts to charge an "MF" 

5)  The charging current entering the battery can be read off the charging current LED panel 

to the right of the "Charge" button, one Ampère per illuminated LED.  

6)  The 4 charging status LEDs below the charge current LED panel indicate how well 

charged the battery is at any moment. This is not simply a question of the battery 
voltage. The first "low battery" symbol indicates a battery with excessive resistance, 
possibly deep-discharged or even sulphated, with the automatic high-voltage recovery 
action engaged. The second symbol indicates a battery under constant current "rapid" 
charge. The third symbol indicates that the voltage of the battery under charge has risen 
to the control point appropriate for that type of battery ("MF" or other) according to the 
selection of the "MF" charge button or not. At this point, the battery is about 75 % 
saturated & sho uld normally be able to start the engine. However this MUST be 
confirmed by conducting a load test. If you have time and wish to charge the battery 
more thoroughly, the battery may be left connected for the remainder of the unelapsed 
time. The charging mode will from now on be at a voltage limit of 13,8 Volts. Should the 
current fall of it's own accord to 10 % or less of the selected charge current during the 
remaining charge time, this is an indication that the battery is more than 90 % saturated, 
and the fourth LED above the ‘MF’ battery" symbol will light. 


SHAPE. Remember that a "fully charged" battery is not necessarily able to start the 
vehicle if internally damaged.  

8)  The LEDs indicati ng charge time elapsed and charge status achieved and "MF" charge 

mode will continue to indicate until the battery or the AC input are disconnected or until 
the battery is re -tested or re-charged so as to allow the operator to observe these 
parameters even though absent at the time the charging terminated.  


9)  Switch off the AC mains switch before disconnecting the battery clamps. 





If the indicated actual charge current is less than the charge current selected according 
to the range selection table, this is because the battery under charge has excessive 
resistance to accepting the charge, probably due to deep-discharge or possible 
sulphation. In such cases the BatteryMate will itself detect this and react automatically 
by increasing the applied voltage as required to enter at least some current into the 
battery initially. The maximum voltage is limited to 24 V. After a while the LED-ammeter 
should gradually start to indicate an increasing current as the resistance is overcome, 
until the indicated current and selected charge current correspond. Should the selected 


background image


time elapse before this occurs, re -commence charging with the timer set on maximum, 6 



 The special desulphating action described cannot engage for safety reasons, 

UNLESS you have FIRST TESTED the battery. 

If after this the selected charge current is still not entering the battery, the latter can be 
scrapped. Never dispose of scrapped batteries into the environment or rubbish. The 
contents are poisonous and dangerous. Scrapped batteries should be sent to a 
specialised recycler without delay.
