BatteryTuner Model B is for all types of 12v batteries.
Batteries do not need to be removed from the vehicle to safely connect
and use the BatterTuner Model B.
Connect the Red clamp to the positive battery terminal and the black to
Plug the AC power cord to a grounded outlet.
The need for battery tuning in all types of lead/acid batteries is
automatically detected when connected. The BatteryTuner will send radio
signal pulses at frequencies to restore the efficiency of the
battery's charge and storage capacities. This operation is
indicated by the yellow LED on constantly. When the battery is
tuned, this LED will flash.
The BatteryTuner Model B will automatically treat batteries when
will tune the battery only when the
battery has gone into float charge and the voltage is lower than 13V.
The process cycles every 4±0.5h until the voltage is higher than
13V. If it cycles 5 times and the voltage is still lower than 13V,
there will be a code “F01” present on the display panel, indicating
error. Battery tuning radio signal treatment and BatteryTuner
float charge and automatic settings are safe for all lead-acid liquid
batteries including sealed and flooded types.
BATTERYTUNER Model B CONTROLS:
DIGITAL DISPLAY MODE SELECTION
Press the Display Mode button to toggle digital display content as
* Current – When selected, charging current (A) will be displayed.
* Voltage – When selected, present battery voltage (V) will be
displayed. The voltage displayed is the present charging voltage.
* Battery Capacity % - When selected, approximate percentage of battery
charge will be displayed.
o At less than 50% battery capacity, the display will read “LO”
o The display will increase in 10% increments between 50% to 90%
o At full charge, the display will read “FUL”
CHARGE RATE SELECTION
Press the Charge Rate button to select desired charge rate as follows:
* 2-12 A Automatic Charge – To help extend the life of your battery and
ensure it is delivering its maximum potential, it is important to
charge the battery at a rate that is appropriate and safe for its
capacity. Charging a battery at too high of a charge rate, while fast,
may shorten the expected life of a battery. Charging a battery at too
low of a charge rate, while safer, takes longer and does not ensure the
battery will reach 100% of its capacity. Optimal Charge logic
automatically selects the ideal charge rate for your battery. In
Optimal Charge mode, the BatteryTuner starts charging at a low, safe
current. Gradually, the BatteryTuner increases current as the battery
demonstrates it can accept a higher current. This will result in a
safely charged battery reaching its utmost capacity.
8 A or 12 A Charge Rate – Use for faster charging of small-to-large
capacity automotive, marine, deep cycle and farm tractor batteries.
2 A Charge Rate - Use for charging motorcycle, ATV, snowmobile,
personal watercraft, garden tractor and golf car batteries.
2 A maintainer mode- use for maintaining a battery with large capacity.
The BatteryTuner Model B comes with 2 run connect charging leads for
extra versatility – standard clamps and ring terminals. The battery may
be charged and treated using any of the two connection options.
Warning: you can only select one charging method for charging at a time.
CHARGE STATUS INDICATOR
A blinking green LED light indicates that the battery is being charged.
A solid green LED light indicates that the battery is fully charged or
that the BatteryTuner is in Maintenance mode.
AUTOMATIC SHUT OFF
The BatteryTuner Model B is designed to automatically shut off once
battery charging is complete to prevent overcharging. When charging is
complete, the Charge Status LED light will stop blinking and the
digital display will read “FUL”.
COMPLETION OF CHARGING
Charge completion is indicated when the Charge Status LED stops
blinking and illuminates continuously (green). The digital display will
also show a “FUL” message. The BatteryTuner has stopped charging and
switched to Maintenance mode.
Once charging is complete, the BAtteryTuner Model B will automatically
go into Maintenance mode (also known as float mode monitoring).
In this mode, the BatteryTuner keeps the battery fully charged by
delivering a small amount of current, when necessary, to keep the
battery at peak charge. This process will resume for around 1
hour, and after that, the digital display will show read “FUL”, and the
DC clamps will automatically power down.
REVERSE POLARITY PROTECTION
If the cables are incorrectly connected to the battery, the Reverse
Polarity indicator will illuminate. Note: the BatteryTuner will not
begin treatment if the Reverse Polarity indicator is lit.
BATTERY TUNING MODE
If a battery is left discharged for an extended period of time, it
could become sulphated and unable to accept a charge. The Tuning Mode
may help reverse the effects of sulphation and restore a battery’s
ability to accept a charge. If the BatteryTuner Model B detects a
sulphated battery, it will automatically activate Battery Tuning mode.
This is indicated by a blinking yellow LED and the digital display will
show you ”-“ in turns. If successful, normal recharging will resume
after the battery is tuned. If the first attempt at desulphation
is unsuccessful, the BatteryTuner will make up to four more attempts.
If still unsuccessful at tuning the battery, fault code “F01” will be
displayed, indicating the battery will not accept a charge and should
If charging can’t be completed normally, charging will be aborted. The
digital display may show a fault code. To reset the BatteryTuner Model
B after an aborted charge, disconnect the battery or unplug the
The BatteryTuner continuously monitors battery condition and may report
certain charging failures as fault codes. Refer to the section called
“FAULT CODES” for a complete list.
COOLING FAN OPERATION
The BatteryTuner is designed to control its high speed cooling fan for
efficient operation. Consequently, it is normal for the fan to start
and stop during charging.
The BatteryTuner Model B is designed to shut itself off if overheating
is detected. Once the BatteryTuner cools down, it will resume charging

time, the green LED illuminates. If the battery is full charged or goes
into float mode, this green LED will illuminate steadily.
2Amp Maintainer – Use 2Amp port to do the battery maintenance.
Operation for the 2 Amp Maintainer
Connect the maintainer cord to the BatteryTuner and connect the clamps’
cable or ring cable to the battery; positive (+) to positive (+),
negative (-) to negative (-). Then connect the clamp cable or
ring cable to the maintainer port, the red LED will light up if you
connect the cables to the battery improperly, and the green LED will
light up if you connect the cables in the properly.
Note: The digital display only show you a moving/scrolling “8” when
using a 2Amp Maintainer cord. Do not use the battery maintainer and the
battery charger simultaneously.
BATTERY CHARGING TIMES
The built-in intelligent microprocessor will continuously monitor and
adjust the BatteryTuner to provide a fast, safe and efficient charge.
Note that battery charge times will vary depending on several factors
1. Battery State – Depending on the voltage of your battery, it may
take up to 10 hours to charge. Batteries with higher voltage can
usually be charged in a few hours.
2. Battery Rating – A higher rated battery will take longer to charge
than a lower rated battery under the same conditions. A battery is
rated in ampere-hours (Ah), reserve capacity (RC) and cold-cranking
3. Charge Rate – The charge rate is measured in amps. A battery charged
at a lower rate will take longer than a battery charged at a higher
rate. However, smaller batteries can be easily damaged by charging at a
rate which is too high for the capacity of the battery.
4. Temperature – Cold temperature will affect a batteries ability to
accept a charge. Charging in cold temperatures will increase the amount
of time required to charge a battery.
Use the following charge rates for capacity of the battery
2A for 8AH~20AH
8A for 32AH~80AH
12A for ≥48AH
If battery size is not known, charge at the 2amp rate. DO NOT
Clean cords and clamps each time you are finished using the
BatteryTuner. Wipe off any battery fluid or debris that might have come
in contact with the clamps to prevent corrosion.
Store the power and output cable neatly to prevent damage.
Occasional cleaning of the BatteryTuner case with a soft cloth will
help protect the finish.
Always unplug the BatteryTuner when not in use.
Keep the BatteryTuner stored in a cool, dry place.
