Thank you for purchasing the BC-119N DESKTOP CHARGER. The BC-119N charges a Ni-Cd or Ni-MH battery pack in approx. 12 hrs., or a Li-Ion battery pack in approx. 23 hrs. Please read these instructions thoroughly before operating the BC-119N.
There are 2 desktop charger adapter types for the BC-119N. One has a PCB, the other does not. The non-PCB types require an additional PCB (AD-75 or AD-88). For some versions, the AD-75 or AD-88 is already installed in the BC-119N. D For the PCB types: Connect the plugs of an appropriate desktop charger adapter and the BC-119N, then installed the adapter with the screws (supplied with the adapter). For some versions, the desktop charger adapter is already installed. Installing the PCB type adapter D For types requiring the AD-75/AD-88: Install the optional AD-75 or AD-88 to the BC-119N with 4 screws (supplied with the AD75/AD-88), then attach a desktop charger adapter to the BC-119N. See the transceivers instruction manual for an approved desktop charger adapter. Installing the AD-75/AD-88


R WARNING! To reduce the risk of injury, charge only specified Icom Ni-Cd, Ni-MH or Li-Ion rechargeable battery packs. Other types of battery packs/cases may burst, causing damage and personal injury. R USE INDOORS ONLY! NEVER expose the charger to rain, snow or any liquids. NEVER let metal, wire, etc. touch any internal part of the charger. NEVER incinerate used batteries. This may cause an explosion. NEVER use the charger when it is covered by objects which impede heat dispersal. Place the charger in a secure place to avoid inadvertent use by children. AVOID charging in conditions of extreme cold (under 10C; +50F) or extreme heat (over +40C; +104F). Batteries may not charge under extreme temperatures. Keep the charger away from TV sets or radios to prevent interference. R NEVER attempt to charge alkaline or dry cell batteries. They may burst causing damage and personal injury. Information (U.S.A. only)
The Ni-Cd battery that you have purchased is recyclable. At the end of its life, under various state and local laws, it may be illegal to dispose of this battery into the municipal waste stream. Call 1-800-822-8837 for battery recycling options in your area or contact your dealer.
Make sure battery and charger contacts are always clean, otherwise batteries may not fully charge. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS! These instructions contain important safety and operating details for the BC-119N. An appropriate desktop charger adapter must be purchased separately to charge your Icom battery packs. In order to get the maximum life out of your Ni-Cd batteries: 1. Avoid overcharging batteries must be removed from the charger to stop charging. Batteries should not be charged for more than 15 hours after the LED indicator turns green. 2. Use the batteries until they become almost completely exhausted under normal conditions. If your batteries seem to have no capacity even after being fully charged, completely discharge them, then fully charge them again. If they still do not retain a charge (or very little), new batteries must be purchased.
Some versions of the BC-119N which display the CE symbol on the serial number comply with the essential requirements of the 89/336/EEC directive for Electromagnetic Compatibility. This compliance is based upon the harmonised CENELEC generic standard EN50 081-1: 1992 and EN50 082-1: 1991.

The BC-119N may be able to be used with future transceivers not listed above. See the transceiver instruction manual for the appropriate adapter information.
NOTE for Ni-Cd/Ni-MH battery packs: The BC-119N rapidly charges a battery pack to a specified level, not a completed level, to prevent over-charging. Leave the battery pack in the charger for a few more hours (up to 15 hours; depending on battery condition) after the LED indicator turns green, to charge the battery completely.
Recommendation for Li-Ion battery packs: Li-Ion batteries are different from Ni-Cd batteries in that it is not necessary to completely charge and discharge them to prolong the battery life. Therefore, charging the battery in intervals, and not for extended periods is recommended.
