Victron 10A BlueSmart IP65 12V 1 Bank 120V Charger
We get asked often about portable chargers and which one to buy. The answer is clear, the Victron BlueSmart IP65! This is our absolute favorite single bank portable battery charger! Why? This charger can be programmed eight ways from Sunday and represents the absolute best value in a portable marine charger at any price. This charger can charge GEL, Flooded Lead Acid, AGM, TPPL AGM & LiFePO4! Use this single bank charger in conjunction with an ACR/Combiner/VSR to charge a second bank. Built in Bluetooth for programming and a built in power cord for easy installation.
BlueSmart IP65 12VDC 10A 1 Bank 120V Charger
The BlueSmart IP65Charger is a battery charger with built-in Bluetooth for custom programming. The Blue Smart IP65 is a marine charger that can also be used on devices in your workshop, on cars & trucks & antique cars, motorcycles & RV's and vans.
The BlueSmart IP65 Charger is the wireless solution to monitor voltage, current, history, to change settings and to update the charger when new features become available.
With up to 94% efficiency, these chargers generate up to four times less heat when compared to the industry standard. And once the battery is fully charged, power consumption reduces to 0.5 watt, some five to ten times better than the industry standard.
Adaptive 6-stage charge algorithm: test - bulk – absorption - recondition – float – storage
The BlueSmart Charger features a microprocessor-controlled ‘adaptive’ battery management. The adaptive feature will automatically optimize the charging process relative to the way the battery is being used.
Storage Mode: less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use
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 2,2V/cell (13,2V for a 12V battery) to minimize gassing and corrosion of the positive plates. Once a week the voltage is raised back to the absorption level to ‘condition’ the battery. This feature prevents stratification of the electrolyte and sulfation, a major cause of early battery failure.
Also charges LiFePO4 batteries
LiFePO4 batteries are charged with a simple bulk – absorption algorithm. The IP65 allows you to custom program how much time is spent in absorption. The float feature can be custom programmed to allow the batteries to sit at close to 50% SoC when not being used. This will aid in the longevity of the batteries by not continually holding them at 100% SoC.
Fully discharged battery recovery function
Will initiate charging even if the battery has been discharged to zero volts where most "smart chargers" will not do this. Will reconnect to a fully discharged Li-ion battery with internal disconnect function.
NIGHT and LOW setting
When in NIGHT or LOW mode, the output current is reduced to max. 50% of the nominal output and the charger will be totally noiseless. The NIGHT mode automatically ends after 8 hours. The LOW mode can be ended manually.
Protected against overheating
Output current will automatically reduce as the internal temperature increases up to 50°C, but the BlueSmart Charger will not fail. Here in our shop we charged a 600Ah LiFePO4 bank from 0% SoC to 100% SoC, for nearly two straight days, in full bulk, using the 7A & 15A models and they never even got hot enough to drop output below the rating. That means this charger is extremely efficient and fully capable of even charging large LiFePO4 banks.
