Rapid Charging technology- In case of standard battery chargers, the charging current is about 400 mA but our rapid type chargers can charge with current upto 1 Amp. This reduces charging time from the standard 6-10 hours to 2-4 hours depending on battery’s capacity.
Reverse polarity protection- Sometimes when the battery is inserted backwards it can cause a large amount of current flow through the charging circuitry, possibly destroying both the battery and charger. So the downstream circuit needs to be properly protected in order to survive with no damage. The positive voltage supplied to the input of the charger can pass through the forward biased protection diode and the protective fuse, back to the charger negative pole. In this concept the protection diode needs to be able to conduct high currents only until the fuse clears.
Short Circuit protection- A short circuit is an electrical circuit that allows a current to travel along an unintended path with no or a very low electrical impedance. This results in an excessive amount of current flowing into the circuit which can cause circuit damage, overheating, fire or explosion. The purpose of a battery short-circuit device is to automatically disconnect the battery circuit within the shortest time period when detecting a battery short-circuit condition through a short-circuit protection circuit, thus protecting the battery.
