The Victron “Blue Power” battery charger is definitely a strong contender when looking for a 12 volt switch-mode charger.
What really makes this charger and the Victron range stand out from the rest is the ability to connect your phone, tablet, or laptop via Bluetooth and program the parameters to suit your batteries. This can be a simple as selecting from a preset or make adjustments in expert mode. As well as set up, charge modes, current, voltage, and charge history can be viewed to keep you up to date with how your batteries are performing.
In a world where efficiency is everything these chargers produce less heat than a standard charger and boast efficiency’s of 94% with a stand by consumption of just 0.5 watts.
The charger will switch between six different charge stages test – bulk – absorption – recondition – float – storage. These modes are adaptive meaning it can make adjustments to the charge cycle to optimize the charging process relative to the way the battery is being used.
“Storage mode” monitors the battery, if it’s not been subjected to discharge for 24 hours, the storage
mode float voltage is reduced to 2,2V/cell (13,2V for a 12V battery) to minimize gassing and corrosion of the positive
plates. Once a week the battery voltage is raised back to the absorption level to help ‘balance’ the battery. This feature helps to prolong battery life by avoiding stratification of the electrolyte and sulfation.
Suitable to charge most battery types including LiFePO4 which are charged with a slightly different algorithm using just the bulk, absorption, and float modes.
Another nice feature when fitting this charger in a smaller van is the night mode. When selected the charger will drop its output rate and run totally noiseless for a eight-hour duration before returning to normal.
