12VDC Input 24 Volt Battery Wheel Chair Chargers for use in 12V cars and vans
Four stage intelligent charger with 10 VDC to 15 VDC input to charge 24 volt (2x12 volt in series) lead acid batteries, (flooded, VRLA, Gel, or AGM.) Charge a wheel chair, bicycle or scooter in your car or van.
An XLR connector cable is also available for those wheel chairs and bicycles that use it.
The following table describes the display of LED lights at different stages of charging:
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 the 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
Charging wheel chairs, bicycles, and scooters in a car, van or bus.
Microprocessor controlled 4 stage adaptive charging algorithm suitable for 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 24 volt batteries from a vehicle.
Charging 24 volt "jump start" batteries from a 12 volt tow truck or service vehicle.
Charging 24 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 24 volt lead acid battery.
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 12 volt 100 AH battery would be able to charge a 24 volt 10 AH battery 4 or 5 times before the host battery needs recharging.
