The ClearCom AC80 battery charger can charge up to four FreeSpeak Edge beltpack batteries simultaneously, either as a drop-in charger for the whole beltpack or for individual BAT80 batteries. The AC80 battery charger has four charging slots that can either charge a BAT80 battery or a FreeSpeak Edge beltpack. The AC80 can charge four BAT80s or four beltpacks at the same time or a combination of the two devices (e.g. two BAT80s and two beltpacks).
The battery in the beltpack takes up to five hours to charge. By itself, the battery takes up to three and a half hours to fully charge. To charge the battery to 20% by itself or in the beltpack in the AC80 it will take approximately 30 minutes. When the battery is charged up to 20-25% the beltpack will have approximately 2 hours of battery life.
Using the BAT80 Li-Ion battery, the FreeSpeak Edge beltpack has 12+ hours of battery life. Optionally, the battery can be charged through the USB-C charging port and used for continuous powering of the beltpack. When charging through the USB-C port, a power source rated at a minimum of 5 volts at 2 Amps is required to get a full charge.
Designed for repetitive use in the most demanding professional applications, the AC80 is robust and provides an intuitive user interface. Charging contacts are placed on the sides for easy insertion and removal of beltpacks and batteries.
