About this product

The AA Car Battery Charger & Maintainer is controlled by a 12-bit AD microprocessor with 4-stage charging characteristics designed for charging automotive batteries fitted in cars, bikes and light commercial vehicles.

The inbuilt microprocessor senses the condition of the battery and controls the regulator to provide the right current and voltage to suit the charging characteristic of the battery. This will provide the best type of charging and give the longest battery life.

Functions include:

  • Intelligent in-built microprocessor
  • Easy to read LED display
  • Reverse polarity protection
  • Short circuit protection
  • Charger memory
  • Water and dust resistant
  • (IP65) Suitable for all types of 6V & 12V lead acid and gel batteries


Technical Specifications:

  • Voltage / current input: 220V - 240V, 21W
  • Current output: 1.0A - 1.2A DC (1.5A RMS)
  • Output voltage: 6V or 12V
  • Type of battery: All types of lead acid batteries including wet acid, sealed, AGM, leisure type or gel batteries
  • Mains cable length: 2m
  • Charging cables length: 1.5m
  • Accessories: 1 x pair of crocodile clamps with 1.0m lead / 1 x pair of eyelet connections with 1.0m lead
  • Weight: 725g
  • Insulation rating: IP65


Charge time (bulk charge up to 80%):

  • 20 AH battery = time to charge is 20 hours 
  • 50 AH battery = time to charge 50 hours
  • 100 AH battery = time to charge 100 hours

 
Stages of Battery Charge:

Soft Start:
The unit will take an initial battery test to determine the battery condition. If the battery is severely discharged the charger will begin the 'soft start' stage. Charging starts with reduced current until battery voltage reaches a normal condition for charge.

Bulk:
This is the major charging stage where the battery receives the majority of its charge. During this stage the battery is brought to 75 - 80% of its charge. The maintainer will deliver the maximum current until the terminal voltage has risen to the full charge level for a normal battery.

Absorption:
Completes the charge up to almost 100%. The charge rate falls to its minimum output while the voltage is maintained.

Float:
This is maintenance charging at constant voltage. Float mode keeps the battery at 100% charge. Normal charging mode is time-limited (max 10 days) while float mode charging will maintain indefinitely without damaging the battery.
