The IDX VAL-4SI is a four-channel, simultaneous Li-Ion (Lithium-Ion) fast charger. Up to four Li-Ion Endura V-mount batteries can be charged in 2.5 hours or less. The VAL series allows the expansion to charge 4 more Endura batteries utilizing the supplied cables. This model has the ability to offer information for PC retrieval.

The highly reliable V-Mount, battery mount is becoming more and more prevalent on many new broadcast and professional camcorders.
An LED condition indicator offers a quick glance of each battery's charge status.
Orange (battery fault)
As Li-Ion is memory free, batteries can be charged from any state regardless of the batteries charge status. Each IDX Li-Ion battery has its own built-in microprocessor which enables direct communication with the chargers program to individually select for each battery the correct charge program specific for that battery.
World-Wide AC Power
As with all IDX chargers, the VAL-4S's power switch is recessed to prevent an accidental loss of power. A world-wide, auto-sensing AC power (AC 100-240V) operation is standard.
