Galaxy audio IEM charging system (AS-DCC)
We recently purchased a set of eneloop rechargable batteries and an AS-DCC charging system for our Galaxy Audio AS-1000R IEM receivers.
We use another "smart charger" for the other batteries (for our mics) and it seems to work well. It does a slow charge, doesnt heat up the batteries, and gives us a "green light" when they are done. I dont know how long this process takes because they are left charging between services.
The day we got the eneloops and the charger, I plugged the charger into our receivers at the end of the service (the lights begin to flash red) and left the building expecting green lights at the begining of the next service. Two days later I come back for the next service and they are still flashing red. We went through the entire service without any battery problems, and I repeated the process, only to find the lights still blinking red a few days later.
This has went on for a couple of weeks now, but I am starting to get concerned about how this charger works. Does it ever stop sending power to the batteries? Its it even trying to charge? (It comes with no documentation)
You would think the blinking red light would become solid green to indicate the charging process was completed.
I need to check to see if the batteries are hot... Im afraid it will do damage to them if the charging circuit is not "smart" enough to stop at the appropriate time.
Anyone have any insight as to how this thing actually works?
We are approaching 5 hours on each set of batteries... This is the amount of time a typical set of alkalines would last. I am starting to wonder if the batteries are even charging, and afraid they are going to die on us sometime this week.
In my experience (limited as it is), flashing red means something more dire than "charging". Something like the batteries are loaded right, so the charger isn't making a good connection.

I just found SOME info about the charging process.
There is no documentation for the charger. It was in the documentation for the receiver.

Thats it.... that is the only info available.
So I know it's charging. And apparently it doesnt go green when it is done, because it seems that there would also be a note in the documentation saying that.
I checked the batteries when I got there today (They had been on charge well over 48 hours) and they were not even the slightest bit warm... So I dont think it is overcharging them. There just appears to be no status indicator to say the process is complete.
