How to use the EasyPlater
Introducing our EasyPlater
Our Easy Plater is designed specifically for the Spa Plating pen and brush plating process. It has a voltage range of 1 - 8.6 and is very easy to adjust, with a clear voltage readout. It comes with its own 12v adapter.

Insert the adapter plug into the socket on the back of the EasyPlater. Plug the adapter’s three pin plug into the power supply. To turn the EasyPlater on, depress the green button on the back. This will glow green, showing that the EsyPlater is turned on.
2. Setting up the EasyPlater for pen plating.
Connect up the EasyPlater as shown in the picture, with one end of the red lead plugged into the red socket on the EasyPlater and the other end of the red lead into the port at the end of you plating pen.
Plug in one end of the black lead into the black port of the EasyPlater and attach the crocodile clip to the other end of the black lead.
All of these items are included in our Gold Pen and Brush Plating Kit.
Once you have connected up the red and black leads, you are now ready to start pen plating. Before you start you will need to enter in the correct voltage level for the pen plating solution you are using.
