The Victron Energy Blue-Power Battery Charger is completely encapsulated: waterproof, shockproof and ignition protected. Water, oil or dirt will not damage the Blue Power Charger. The casing is made of cast aluminium and the electronics are moulded in resin.
The Highest Efficiency Ever!
Setting a new industry standard: with 95% efficiency, these chargers waste three to four times less heat. And once the battery is fully charged, power consumption reduces to less than a Watt, some five to ten times better than the industry standard.
The Blue Power Charger features a microprocessor controlled ‘adaptive’ battery management. The ‘adaptive’ feature will automatically optimise the charging process relative to the way the battery is being used.
Less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use: 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 2.2 V/cell (13.2 V for a 12 V battery) to minimise gassing and corrosion of the positive plates. Once a week the voltage is raised back to the absorption level to ‘equalize’ the battery. This feature prevents stratification of the electrolyte and sulphation, a major cause of early battery failure.
Protected against overheating
Can be used in a hot environment such as a engine room. Output current will reduce as temperature increases up to 60°C, but the charger will not fail
