Special Features

Optimized Operating Software
The RDX1 “auto” feature sets the charge and discharge current for you automatically,
preventing overcharging which can damage your battery. In the event
of an error, the RDX1 instantly disconnects the circuit and sounds an alarm.
This feature can be set by the user and controlled through the two-way link for
maximum safety.

Program Select

The charger can store up to 10 different charge/discharge profiles for your
convenience. You can keep the data pertaining to program settings of the battery
for continuous charging or discharging. Users can call out this data at any
time without setting any additional programming.

Internal Independent Lithium Battery Balancer

The RDX1 features a built-in cell voltage balancer so you don’t need to fuss with
external balancers while charging.

Balancing Individual Cells During Discharging
When used with a balancing board the RDX1 can monitor and balance each
cell in the pack individually while discharging. If the voltage of any single cell
is abnormal, the RDX1 will display an error message and the process will end

Adaptable to Various Types of Lithium Batteries
The RDX1 will charge and discharge a variety of Lithium batteries such as Li-ion,
LiPo, LiFe and the new higher voltage LiPo, (LiHV) batteries.

Multiple Lithium Battery Charge Modes
The RDX1 features four methods of charging: Regular charge, Fast charge, Balance
charge and Storage charge modes. We highly recommend using balance
charge as it is the safest and best way to charge lithium chemistry batteries. If
you plan on not using your Lithium chemistry batteries for an extended period
of time, Storage charge mode is recommended to optimize your packs for long
term storage and maximum lifespan.

Input Power Monitoring

The RDX1’s input voltage is monitored to protect the battery from becoming
damaged. The process ends automatically if it drops below the limit.

Capacity and Temperature Limits

The charge process will terminate if either the charging capacity or battery
temperature exceeds the limit set by the user. The temperature function
requires an optional temperature probe, which is not included with the RDX1.

Processing Time Limit

Protect your battery by setting a maximum time limit for charging and

Cyclic Charging/Discharging
A battery can be cycled 1 to 5 times consecutively. This process is good for
refreshing and balancing your battery.

Maximum Safety
Our delta-peak voltage detection program ends the charge cycle whenever a
battery’s voltage exceeds the set threshold.

Automatic Charging Current Limit

Charging current can be set by the user when charging Lithium, NiCd or NiMH
batteries. The ‘AUTO’ charging mode, however, is recommended when charging
NiMH batteries with low impedance and capacity.

LiPo Battery Meter

The user can check the battery’s total voltage, the highest and lowest as well as
each cells voltage.

PC Control Using Charge Master Software

The free Charge Master software gives you unparalleled ability to operate the
charger through the computer. You can monitor pack voltage, cell voltage and
other data during the operation. Additionally, you have the ability to set up the
charger and update the firmware.
