Silent Model – No Fan: Features natural convection cooling. No fan, no noise. This battery charger is also protected against overheating: output current will reduce as temperature increases up to 60°C, but the Blue Power charger will not fail.
High Efficiency: With up to 94% efficiency, this charger generates up to four times less heat when compared to the industry standard. Once the battery is fully charged, power consumption reduces to 0,5 Watt, some five to ten times better than the industry standard.
Adaptive 4-Stage Charge Characteristic: 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. The storage mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge during 24 hours. In storage mode, float voltage is reduced to 2,2 V/cell (13,2V for a 12V 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.
Two LED’s for Status Indication: Yellow LED: bulk charge (blinking fast), absorption (blinking slow), float (solid), storage (off) Green LED: power on.
