High Power DC Source Chargers for charging 6 volt lead acid batteries from a 12 volt (10-15 volt) source
Inexpensive four stage, multiple voltage, microprocessor controlled lead acid battery charger voltage charger with 10 VDC to 15 VDC input. Charges 6 volt lead acid batteries. Charge a 6V battery from a 12V battery, or from an 12V automobile, truck, tractor or back-hoe.
Q: Can I leave the battery continuously on the charger?
A: Yes, the charger will go into "maintenance mode" and keep the battery topped off.
Q: Can I draw power from the battery when the charger is connected?
A: Probably. . . There is some pulsing going on with the charger which your equipment might not be happy with (it is a pulse-charger, 1 second pulses with 20mS gaps), but if you combine this with a battery the battery will fill in the gaps, so the ripple is no more than it would see in an automotive application.
Q: If I discharge the battery while the charger is attached will the charger maintain a full charge?
A: Yes, When the charger detects that the battery voltage has dropped it knows that the battery needs to be charged and goes into "bulk charge" mode again automatically.
Q: Can the charger be left connected to the battery when the charger is not turned on, or when the input voltage of the charger has been cut off?
Q: Can the charger be adjusted to lower currents?
A: Yes. There are two trimpots that we can adjust here or click here to view the instructions
Inexpensive DC input charger.
Protects even small 6 volt batteries from gassing or damage.
Charge efficiency is 95% for the a SLA, VRLA, or Gel Cell battery and 85% for the charger, making a combined efficiency of 81%. So a 100 AH 12 volt battery would be able to charge a 10 AH 6 volt battery 16 or 18 times before the host battery needed recharge.
Charging 6 volt lead acid batteries using 12 volt DC sources, such as cars, vans, wheel chairs, bicycles, and scooters.
Microprocessor controlled 4 stage adaptive charging algorithm suitable for 6V Gel, Absorbed Glass Mat, VRLA, or flooded lead acid batteries.
Fully automatic without intervention.
Output short circuit and battery polarity protections. Input low voltage and high voltage connections.
Charging 6 V sealed lead acid batteries from a vehicle.
Charging 12 volt electric bicycle from a vehicle.
Four stage charge--constant current, constant voltage, fill, and float. This charges your battery the fastest way possible without damaging the battery. It is suitable for any size 6 volt lead acid battery.
