Just Clever Things

With boat owners in mind this adaptive 5-step charger can provide either 30A or 50A of charge to each of three battery banks. Or the Phoenix 1+1 model provides 3A to the starter-battery, the rest to the ‘house’ bank. 24V models are available with 16A/25A charge. Bluetooth enabled, you can monitor the charger and set alarms straight from your phone. Adaptive, intelligent, dynamic charge features

This charger features a revolutionary adaptive 4-stage charge characteristic that ensures optimal battery management. Let’s explore how this intelligent system can be tailored to different battery types, providing the perfect charge for every scenario.

1. Adaptive 4-Stage Charging: The Victron Phoenix Smart IP43 Charger employs a microprocessor-controlled ‘adaptive’ battery management system with four distinct stages: bulk, absorption, float, and storage. This adaptability allows it to automatically optimize the charging process based on the specific usage patterns of your batteries.

2. Variable Absorption Time: Experience the right amount of charge with variable absorption time. In instances of shallow discharges, such as a yacht connected to shore power, the absorption time is shortened to prevent overcharging. After a deep discharge, the charger automatically extends the absorption time, ensuring a thorough recharge without causing harm to the battery.

3. BatterySafe Mode: To prevent damage from excessive gassing during quick battery charging, the Charger employs the BatterySafe mode. By intelligently limiting the rate of voltage increase once the gassing voltage is reached, it safeguards your battery’s health and longevity.

4. Storage Mode for Maintenance-Free Operation: When your battery remains undisturbed for 24 hours, the Storage mode kicks in. This mode reduces the float voltage to minimize gassing and corrosion, enhancing the battery’s lifespan. Periodically, the voltage is raised back to the absorption level to prevent electrolyte stratification and sulphation, common culprits of premature battery failure.

5. Temperature Compensation for Extended Life: Equipped with a battery temperature sensor, the Victron Phoenix Smart IP43 Charger automatically adjusts the charge voltage based on the battery’s temperature. This feature is particularly beneficial for sealed batteries or in scenarios with significant fluctuations in battery temperature, effectively extending battery life.

The Victron Phoenix Smart IP43 Charger, a powerhouse of features designed to simplify your battery management. From adaptive 4-stage charging to temperature compensation, this charger is a must-have for anyone seeking a reliable, efficient, and future-ready solution. Embrace the smart technology that makes charging a breeze and ensures your batteries stay in peak condition for the long haul.
