    I don't have this charger, but i found this on page 45 of the online manual. Took me all of 2 minutes to find it online.

    Show Warning at 50% DOD: If checked, PowerLab 8 measures battery voltage when first connected. If the battery is below 50% depth of discharge (below that point, most flooded Lead Acid batteries are damaged), PowerLab 8 beeps and issues a warning. Press the BACK button to cancel the operation on the PowerLab 8, then correct the situation. (You could press the ENTER button to proceed, but this is not recommended.)

          THE DOD is in reference to the supply battery voltage, which is based on a lead acid battery. What are you using to power your charger? DC supply, or lead acid battery?
