Product Information
  • High current dual purpose 30A 12V DC to DC battery charger
  • Suitable for deep cycle and cranking lead acid batteries of 70Ah and higher battery capacities
  • Eliminates dual battery switch
  • Will not flatten vehicle battery
  • Compensates for voltage drops over supply wires
  • Dual purpose lead acid battery charger (charges from car or solar panel without having to re-connect car or solar panel)
  • Integrated 360W MPPC solar charger
  • Integrated alternator overload protection
  • Integrated bypass circuit automatically connects loads directly to alternator when charger operates thus making full 30A available to charge battery.
  • Three state charger optimises charging (bulk, constant voltage and trickle charging)
  • Two colour charge indicator LED shows charging and charge completion status
  • Integrated battery temperature compensation to prolong battery life
  • Twin two speed thermally controlled cooling fans
  • Integrated over temperature protection
  • Short circuit and reverse battery protection on all inputs and outputs
  • Sturdy powder coated mild steel enclosure
  • Easy installation with high quality screw type wire connections
Warning
Our DCDC30A charger is a serious machine that can draw up to 50A from your vehicle's alternator. In order to protect your alternator we have included a feature that reduces the charging current progressively if the input voltage from the alternator drops and approaches 13V. It is therefore necessary to use wire sizes as specified to prevent charge current reduction as a result of voltage drops over supply wires.
