This Software chip can alter your model 109/109D or newer model 110 Deluxe Charger to make it into a A123 Lithium Ion Charger. Now you can charge your a123 batteries. It will not recognize any other batteries besides the a123's now. This micro chip is easy to install. It plugs into the socket on the circuit board and upgrades your 110 Deluxe Charger or 109/109D charger to the latest Software Version 1.4 for A123 batteries released in March 2008. Remove the four screws which are holding the charger together. Flip the charger over into the gray tub. Use needle nose pliers to carefully remove (wiggle upwards) the old chip.You may use a Popsicle stick to guide in the feet and press gently. The small notch on the chip should face the middle of the charger, not the edge of the charger. If it goes in backwards no harm will be done, but you will see black squares on the display.
