The Mach 1 Speed Charger is a highly advanced and fully automatic battery charger which is compatible with 3.6 & 6.0 Volt NiCd
/NiMH batteries for camcorders from Sony, JVC, Panasonic, Sharp, Hitachi, RCA and other manufacturers.
The Mach 1 Speed Charger features microprocessor controlled Neotherm

than twice as fast as other chargers. Not only will it charge the battery safely and reliably, it will prolong the battery life. Charging
progress, MAX charge and error conditions are all provided by the LED indicators.
Flexible power input allows you to use the Mach 1 Speed Charger from home or overseas with its 110V-240V AC Universal Power
Supply, or on the road using the DC Cigarette Lighter Adapter included.

work with. If the charger base does not already have the adapter plate you want attached, you will need to remove the adapter plate
first by pushing down on the plate and sliding it to the rear of the charger base (away from the LED indicators). Then, attach the
selected adapter plate to the charger unit by aligning the arrows on the sides of the adapter plates and the charger base as shown.
While pressing down lightly on the adapter plate, slide the plate toward the front of the charger base until it locks.
Plug-in, either the AC Adapter or the DC Cigarette Lighter power adapter, and connect the other end of the power adapter cable to the
power input jack on the rear of the charger unit.
Together, the three LED’s on the front of the Mach 1 charger will indicate the status of the battery and the charger. See the
