Perfect all-rounder for small to large batteries found in recreational vehicles, passenger vehicles and 4WDs.
This is a fully automatic battery charger with 6 charge stages. Automatic charging protects your battery from being overcharged so you can leave the charger connected to the battery indefinitely.
6-stage charging is a sophisticated charging technique that gives your battery longer life and better performance compared to using traditional chargers.
Projecta’s Pro-Charge chargers are suitable for most 12V automotive, marine and deep cycle batteries. They may also help restore drained and sulphated batteries.
The 6 charge stages are:
Rejuvenation; Soft Start; Bulk; Absorption; Battery Test and Float.
The rejuvenation stage is manually initiated and delivers a 24 hour high frequency, intermittent charge that breaks down sulphation from the battery’s plates. Upon completion, the charger will proceed to Soft Start.
This is a preliminary charge process that gently introduces power to the battery, protecting the battery and increasing battery life.
BULK (CONSTANT CURRENT)
The Bulk stage reduces charging time by charging the battery at the maximum rate (constant current) to a set voltage, at which point the battery is approximately 80% charged.
ABSORPTION (CONSTANT VOLTAGE)
The absorption stage charges the battery to 100% by adjusting the charge rate allowing the battery to absorb more power.
EQUALISATION (CALCIUM MODE ONLY)
Designed especially for calcium batteries, this stage returns calcium batteries to full service by removing acid stratification of the electrolyte.
The analysis mode tests the battery to ensure that it has taken the charge; if the battery passes the test the charger will proceed to the float stage.
The Float stage maintains the battery at 100% charge without overcharging or damaging the battery. This means the charger can be left connected to the battery indefinitely.
