Yes, for once I took a look through a manual... and found that option. :-)

Now you have to flip the label around on the front panel.

Its the finer details of a product that give you a hint as to the quality of the product, and the Grin Satiator would be an amazing charger to have.

Whatever you do, do not run it over with a fork truck!

Ouch! I am thinking there are easier ways to open it up to see what’s inside.

That will be covered by warranty, right?

As heavy as forklifts are, that's not as bad as I would've expected, given other things I've seen runover.

Does it still turn on? ;)

BTW, if you don't want to fix it, I'll buy the screen and it's cable, if those are uncrushed (and cheap). I could also use the onboard output connector and mounting hardware.


Something is wrong with the cable to the screen on mine; I had to open it up to fix the output cable connector, whose ground "plate" had come off the screwdown point inside, causing repeated power faults. But after reassembly the screen didnt' come on; eventually I found the cable sometiems lets the screen turn on if I touch it just right, at the fold. :/

(could probably fix it with conductive paint, but I'd have to order that).

Thankfully I don't presently need to use more than the default profile...but when I do, it's gonna be harder to do without the screen. (and I can't see any of the stats, or if there were errors; I presently know it's charging when I hear the relay click on, but have to "assume" it finished correctly).

Its crushed beyond repair for me. Screen damaged main transformers crushed multiple boards broken in a few spots. Ill post more pics if interested in the parts, i kept the battery cable output since i use it on my new one, it ran over only half of the charger. Made a really loud pop sound similar to a gunshot

It looks to me as though the forklift caught the corner of the unit. So everything else is usable for sure!
