Products: Dynamite ProphetTM Sport Duo 50Wx2 AC Battery Charger

Problem: Connecting battery packs across channels or selecting the incorrect battery type during charging may
result in a fire.

What to Do: Always confirm the position of the Battery Type Switch matches the battery type that you are charging.
When connecting the battery to the charger, always connect the battery charge lead and the battery balance
lead to the same channel. Contact Horizon Hobby Product Support if you have any questions.

CAUTION: Before charging, always ensure you have chosen the correct battery chemistry type for the
battery you are charging.

1. Use the Battery Type Switch to select the battery type (Ni-MH/Li-Po/Li-Po Fast) for the battery you wish to
charge. The 4-Digit LED Indicator will display the battery type for 2 seconds, then show the charge current
selected by the Charge Current Dial.

CAUTION: Always ensure the battery charge lead and the balance lead are connected to the correct
charge port (Ex. The battery is connected to Charge Lead #1 and Balance Port #1).

2. Connect the JST_XH Balance Adapter to the Balance Circuit Adapter Board Connector.

3. After charging begins, the 4-Digit LED Indicator will cycle between displaying the currently selected battery
type and “0000” for 30 seconds.
