INTRODUCTION

The Technology Solutions 1136 4-Slot Battery Charger is intended for charging Varta Microbattery’s EasyPack 
(EZPack L and EZPack XL) rechargeable Li-Polymer battery packs. The charger can charge up to four batteries 
simultaneously. The four batteries can all be the same type, or can be two of each type. The charger senses which 
type of battery has been inserted and adjusts the charge rate accordingly. There is an individual charge status 
indicator for each battery slot. The charger also monitors the temperature of each battery pack and adjusts the 
charge rate to provide optimal charge rate whilst maintaining safe battery temperature.

The 1136 Battery Charger is powered by a Motorola 12 V power supply, part number 50-14000-148R or PWRS-
14000-148C.

INSERTING AND REMOVING 

THE BATTERY RETAINING CLIPS

FIGURE 2: 

Inserting the battery retaining clips

The battery retaining clips are required to hold the battery in position during charge. The clips do not determine the 
charge rate, but if they are not correctly positioned then the battery will not make the necessary electrical contact 
and will not be charged. It is possible to have the front and back battery compartments set for the same or different 
battery packs. It does not matter which compartment is set for which battery type.

The clips can be inserted in one of two slots. The front slot (nearest the charge status indicator) is for the smaller 
EasyPack L battery. The rear slot (furthest from the charge status indicator) is for the larger EasyPack XL battery. 
Insert the clip with the hook at the top nearest the charge status indicator.

Push the clip vertically downwards into the appropriate slot. When it is fully inserted it will click and lock into place.

If the clip needs to be moved to reconfigure the charger, pull it vertically upwards so that it releases and then lift it 
out of the charger.

Clip at front for EasyPack L

Clip at back for EasyPack XL

1) Align the battery 

retaining clip with 

the required slot.

2) The hook at 

the top of battery 

retaining clip must 

face forwards 

towards the charge 

status indicator.

3) Push the battery 

retaining clip down until 

it clicks into position.

INSERTING AND REMOVING A BATTERY

Insertion

Removal

Slide battery in to 

compartment, gold 

contacts and label 

to the front.

Ensure battery 

hooks under battery 

retaining clip.

Pull the top of the battery 

forwards and lift the battery 

out of the compartment.

FIGURE 3: 

Inserting and removing a battery

To remove the battery, pull the top forwards 
towards the charge status indicator so that it is 
clear of the hook on the battery retaining clip. Lift 
the battery out of the charge compartment.

Insert the battery with the gold contacts next to the 
label facing towards the charge status indicator for 
that battery compartment. Slide the battery down 
into the compartment and push it backwards to 
make sure it hooks under the battery retaining clip.

CONNECTING THE POWER SUPPLY

Use only one of the recommended Motorola power supplies (part number 50-14000-148R or PWRS-14000-148C).

Plug the power supply into the socket on the back of the battery charger. Use an appropriate mains lead to connect 
the power supply to the mains. It is recommended that when the charger is not in use that the power supply is 
turned off and disconnected from the mains.

When the charger is powered the blue indicator on the front of the charger lights.

CHARGING BATTERIES

Ensure that the battery retaining clips are positioned correctly for the required battery type (Section 3) and that the 
power supply is connected (Section 5).

Insert the battery or batteries (Section 4). Batteries can be inserted and removed at any time. It is not necessary 
to turn the charger power supply off to insert or remove a battery. Each charge compartment is independent of the 
others. A fully charged battery can be removed whilst other batteries are still charging. A battery can be inserted 
whilst other batteries are charging.

When a battery is inserted the charger senses whether it is an EasyPack L or EasyPack XL battery based on the 
Identification Resistor built into the battery and selects the appropriate charge rate. The charger performs a test of 
the battery to make sure it is safe to charge. So long as no problems are detected the charger starts to charge the 
battery. Charge in progress is indicated by a slow flash of the charge status indicator.

When the battery is fully charged the charge status indicator changes to light continuously.

If a fault is detected with a battery, or if the battery temperature is too high or too for safe charging then the charge 
status indicator shows a fast flash.

If the charger is located somewhere hot then it is possible that the additional heating of the battery whilst it is 
charged will cause the charger to indicate a fault on a battery. This will automatically clear once the battery cools 
down again. The battery charger adjusts the charge rate of each battery as necessary to attempt to avoid this from 
happening. As a result, if the charger is used in a warm location the batteries will take longer to charge. Keeping 
the charger in a cool location will ensure the fastest possible charge times.

CHARGING BATTERIES

If all four compartments of the charger are used then the charger itself will warm up. This causes it to slow the 
charge rate down. This means that charging four batteries will take longer than charging one, two or three batteries. 
Approximate charge times for fully discharged batteries, assuming an ambient temperature of 20°C are shown 
below:

Batteries being charged

Approximate charging time

Single EasyPack L

150 minutes

Single EasyPack XL

220 minutes

Two EasyPack L

160 minutes

Two EasyPack XL

315 minutes

Four EasyPack L

180 minutes

Four EasyPack XL

360 minutes

TROUBLESHOOTING AND MAINTENANCE

For trouble-free service observe the following precautions when using the 1136 Battery Charger:

 

Do not store or use the 1136 Battery Charger in any location that is dusty, damp, or wet.

 

Do not attempt to use any other power supply than the recommended ones.

 

Do not attempt to charge other types of battery.
