Using a PAG charger to charge and manage your PAG batteries is always the best way to achieve the maximum number of cycles and the longest possible working life.

The 4-position PAGlink PL16+ is the ideal workshop charger for broadcast organisations and rental companies. It greatly reduces the number of chargers required to manage a large PAGlink V-Mount Li-Ion battery inventory.

4 fully-discharged 96Wh batteries will be fully-charged simultaneously in less than 6 hours; 8 in less than 12 hours.

The PL16+ is designed for charging simultaneously 16 x 96Wh PAGlink batteries in less than 24 hours. However, it is possible to charge a maximum of 32 batteries, 8 linked on each position, without user-intervention. The estimated charge time is approximately 48 hours.

The charging process is managed automatically by the PAGlink batteries and PAG’s Intelligent Parallel Charging software.

PAGlink batteries communicate their individual state-of-charge to the charger. The most discharged batteries are given priority until all the batteries reach a similar state-of-charge. The batteries are then charged simultaneously, using available current in the most efficient way, until they are fully-charged. They can be left safely on the charger until they are ready to use.

During charging, the percentage state-of-charge of each PAGlink battery is indicated on its individual display. The battery’s numeric display can be inverted, for legibility, with a single button press, and reverts automatically after removal. The stages of the charging process for each channel are clearly indicated on the charger’s large backlit LCD screen.

An automatic recovery feature is included for deeply discharged batteries. Additionally, the charger will automatically reset Li-Ion batteries if their cut-out has been tripped.

The PL16+ is compact, quiet and cool-running, and features a hard-wearing aluminium case. It weighs only 3.5lbs (1.6kg), and its slim design makes it easy to transport.



Range of Batteries Charged:
Parallel charging, from any state of charge, individually or linked:
PAGlink PL96T Model 9304
PAGlink PL96e Model 9303
PAGlink PL150e Model 9308
PAGlink PL150T Model 9309

Parallel charging individually:
PAG L90 Slim Model 9307V
PAG L96e Model 9310V
PAG L96T Model 9305V

Battery Connectors: 4 x V-Mount.

Main Charge Programs:
Li-Ion Intelligent Parallel Charging program: maximum output 6A at 16.8V (100W approx.).

PAGlink Charging:
Up to 8 PAGlink batteries per channel may be charged. Batteries can be in any state-of-charge. The most-discharged batteries will be given a higher charge priority. Fully charged batteries stop accepting charge automatically and independently of other batteries.

Recovery Charge Program:
An automatic Recovery Charge Program enables deeply-discharged batteries to be charged. Additionally, the charger will automatically recover a Li-Ion battery where the output has been shut down.

Self Test Program:
Monitors the battery under charge, monitors the charger’s own functions, and shuts down to a safe condition should any tests fail.

Mains Input:
100V to 265V AC. Frequency 50-60 Hz. Maximum consumption 220W.

Output Protection:
Protected against short circuit and excess battery voltage.

AC Mains Failure Protection:
Should mains failure occur during a charging program, or whilst the charger is connected, it will shut down to a safe condition.

User Interface:
The charge status of each PAGlink battery is indicated by its own display.
The different stages of the charging process are indicated for each channel on the charger’s LCD screen. The charger is fully automatic in operation.

Designed to comply with electrical safety standard BS EN 60065 and UL6500. NOTE: UK mains leads are fitted with a 1" fuse to BS1362 rated 5A as standard.
