Century’s new battery chargers and maintainers
Century’s new range of battery chargers and maintainers are here to make maintaining batteries simpler and easier than ever before – consisting of three new models which can charge and maintain a wide range of battery types across many different usage applications. The Century charger range caters to AGM, GEL, EFB flooded and Calcium SMF lead-acid batteries – with the flagship CC1212-XLi also gaining compatibility with the latest Lithium (LFP) batteries.
Suitable for charging batteries from 3Ah up to 240Ah, the Century charger range includes features such as a nine-stage charging process, selectable output current, reverse polarity protection, and an eco-power mode to reduce energy consumption. In addition, all chargers feature a patented rejuvenation feature builtin – which uses peak pulse reconditioning to repair heavily discharged lead-acid batteries.
Backed by a comprehensive five-year warranty, the Century charger range also have a built-in “battery maintainer” mode, which automatically engages once the battery has reached full charge. In this mode, the charger can be left connected 24/7 to periodically trickle charge batteries from 3Ah up to 360Ah to ensure they remain fully charged. This is ideal for lead-acid batteries which see occasional or infrequent usage, such as boat, motorcycle and ride-on mower starting batteries, or deep cycle battery systems installed in caravans or camper trailers.
In the event that a battery has been heavily discharged for an extended period of time, the Century CC1212XLi and CC1206 are capable of activating on batteries reading as low as 2-Volts, and initiating the charging process. The CC1212-XLi can also be used on Lithium (LFP) batteries where the Battery Monitoring System (BMS) has entered “sleep mode” because the cell voltage dropped below the minimum threshold. In this situation, the Century CC1212-XLi has a Lithium LFP Wake Up mode, specifically designed to wake up the BMS and commence charging.
