Victron Automotive IP65 Charger - 12 Volts - 4 Amps



Victron Energy


Automotive battery charger

Less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use: the Storage Mode
The storage mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge during 24 hours. In the storage mode float voltage is reduced to 13.2 V to minimise gassing and corrosion of the positive plates. Once a week the voltage is raised back to the absorption level to 'equalise' the battery. This feature prevents stratification of the electrolyte and sulphation, a major cause of early battery failure.

Protected against overheating and reverse polarity connection
The output current will reduce as temperature increases up to 40°C, but the charger will not fail. Output relay protects against reverse polarity connection.

Five LED's for status and mode indication
When connected to the AC supply the STAND-BY LED will turn on. No voltage will be present at the output. After connection to a battery (battery voltage must exceed 8.5V), a choice can be made out of three charge profiles with the MODE button:

1. Current limited to 0.8A and 14.4V absorption voltage. The red LED <14Ah will be on.
2. Current 4A and 14.4V absorption voltage. The red LED >14Ah will be on.
- Application:
- Flooded, AGM or GEL batteries. Ambient temperature 10-35°C.
3. Current 4A and 14.7V absorption voltage. The red LED COLD will be on.
- Application:
- Flooded, AGM or GEL batteries. Ambient temperature below 10°C, or batteries requiring a higher charge voltage (OPTIMA spiral cell batteries for example).

DC connector
Depending on the application, clamps, eyelets or a cigarette plug (all included) can be connected to the charger.
