Which battery profile should my charger use?
The recommended battery profiles for different types of batteries are listed in the ChargerConnect™ App Users Guide which is located within the app (drop down menu>help) and on our public website
What is a battery profile?
Battery profiles are series of charge instructions that battery chargers use to fully recharge the energy that is stored within a battery. Some batteries require Current – Voltage – Current (IEI) charge routines while others may require Current – Voltage – Float (IE) charge instructions
Can I change my charger’s battery profile myself?
Battery profiles for Summit II chargers can be changed using the ChargerConnect App. Instructions for this procedure are listed in the users guide
There are flashing lights on my charger, what do they mean?
The LED Lights on your charger indicate the charge status, complete charge or any faults that may have occurred during a charge cycle. Please see the Summit II users manual for a complete list of these LED light codes
Where do I find a list of the profiles that are pre-loaded into my charger?
The battery profiles can be viewed in the ChargerConnect App. See the Apps user manual for instruction to identify the profiles that are pre-loaded into each charger.
Can I purchase extra DC Cordsets for my charger?
Yes, additional DC Cordsets can be purchased by contacting the Lester Electrical sales department at 402.477.8988
Can the charger use 120 /240 VAC?
Summit II Chargers are design to accept both 120 and 240 VAC input
Can I charge lithium batteries with a Summit II Charger?
Yes, The standard Wet Cell battery profiles are used (IEI) and the maximum voltage is regulated by the lithium battery controller that is part of your power cell package
What is CAN bus?
Controller Area Network (CAN) is a communication protocol that allows devices to communicate with each other without a host computer. Many electrical vehicles use this form of communication to monitor various systems o make the vehicle operate efficiently
Does my charger have CAN bus?
All Summit II Chargers are CAN bus compliant
Why is there a blue wire do on my onboard wiring harness?
On-board Summit II Chargers are shipped with a universal mounting harness. The blue wire in the harness is used to control an external lockout device that will keep the vehicle from moving during a charge cycle. Please consult the vehicle manufacturer for information in regards to this connection
How long will it take my multi-volt charger to detect the proper voltage required?
Multi-volt chargers will detect the battery pack voltage within 10 minutes of initial power up. To determine the status of this feature, establish the blue tooth connection using the ChargerConnect App, go to the dashboard and find the section below the fuel gauge that indicates a percentage of Auto Battery Voltage Detection. When this measurement reaches 100% the battery voltage has been detected
What is the difference between onboard and shelf mode charger settings?
Onboard chargers initiate the charge sequence when AC voltage is detected by the charger. Shelf mode charger require the detection of DC voltage to initiate the charge
Can I install remote LED’s on my Summit II Charger?
An accessory package may be purchased to install remote LED’s on any Summit II Charger. These remote LED’s allow the user access to valuable information if the charger is installed in an area without easy access
