ACS110 Charger for ADCON Battery Packs
The device features a connector to plug into the internal batteries of ADCON's A72x, A73x and A75x RTU's. An optional adapter allows to connect batteries used with (the now obsolete) A730MD and A730SD devices. A 5-pin adapter cable with an integrated circuit that protects against excessive voltage but allows charging of batteries without opening the RTU, is also included.
Specifically when charging batteries with solar panels an optimum charge and discharge cycle can usually not be maintained, as is the case with most outdoor equipment. Over time memory effects can develop some negative effects reducing the batteries capacity.
It is thus recommended to recondition batteries at least once a year. A reconditioning cycle will fully discharge and charge your battery at a slow pace. Repeat this cycle 2 to 3 times if your batteries are 2-3 years or older. This will help to extend the lifetime of your batteries and to bring them back to full charge.
