• The Origin charger has a recessed area on top to allow for stacking another Origin charger on top or for storing your battery when not
charging or in use.
› NOTE: It is not recommended to use your charger with a battery or other charger stored on top as this will increase the temperature
of the charger or battery. Charging a battery stored on top of the charger will cause the battery to reach higher temperatures during
the charge, thus reducing the accuracy of the peak detection and reducing the cycle life of your battery.
› Warning: Never “kink” (or bend sharply) any electrical wires. Doing so may damage the internal electrical wire even if the outside
• Never store the charger (or your batteries) in direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
