Victron Blue Power 17 Amp 12 Volt Marine RV Waterproof Battery charger is the Professionals choice of Battery Charger, it is designed to keep your batteries in great shape. This compact design allows for easy storage and yet is powerful enough to be used for charging a car, bus, truck, caravan or boat battery system.
The Victron 17 Amp Blue Power Battery charger is a small versatile charger that is perfect to have around home for those time when you need to give those batteries some extra maintenance.
The Victron 12 Volt 17 Amp Battery Charger is designed with some important features:
Blue Power IP67 Marine RV Charger completely encapsulated: waterproof, shockproof and ignition protected
Water, oil or dirt will not damage the Blue Power IP67 Charger. The casing is made of cast aluminium and the electronics are moulded in resin.
The models with suffix (1+Si) feature a second current limited output which is always powered as long as 180 – 265 VAC is present on the input. This output can for example be used to prevent starting of a vehicle before unplugging the battery charger (start interrupt function).
Adaptive 4-Stage charge algorithm: bulk - absorption - float - storage
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: 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 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 machine room. Output current will reduce as temperature increases up to 60°C, but the charger will not fail.
Two LEDs for status indication
Yellow LED: bulk charge (blinking fast), absorption (blinking slow), float (solid), storage (off) Green LED: power on.
