DC to DC Chargers – Why you need one for your 4WD
DC-DC charging is a relatively new term in the 4x4 and recreational vehicle market. It has become increasingly popular over the last couple of years as the advantages that this type of system bring have become increasingly popular with those who are demanding more and more from their auxiliary battery systems.
DC-DC chargers work by converting the voltage and current level they are supplied from the vehicle alternator system into the required output voltage and current level for the battery they are charging.
The Redarc range of BCDC DC- DC In-vehicle chargers ensure optimum performance of electrical equipment such as fridges, lights, cameras or even CPAP machines when powered from a dual battery set up.
BCDC In-vehicle battery chargers have been designed to charge any commonly used automotive auxiliary battery to 100 percent by providing a unique multi-stage charging profile whilst on the move. The 1225D and 1240D models also feature a MPPT Solar regulator, allowing the maximum amount of power from solar panels to charge an auxiliary battery. The range features a wide 9V – 32V input range allowing an auxiliary battery to be charged from either a 12V or 24V system at either a 25A or 40A output.
