12 Volt SLA battery charger 3.3 Amp with universal AC input, rejuvenation function and state-of-charge indicator

More lead acid battery chargers 6V, 12V, 18V, 36V, 42V, 48V
Small lead acid battery chargers 12 volts with desufation function

12V 3300 mA multi-stage recharger with universal AC input and removable AC cord. Includes an auto-sensing desulfating feature.

These are state-of-the-art battery chargers that can be used on-demand, or left permanently on the battery for maintenance and sulfation prevention. It uses energy-saving techniques and and and advanced pulsed charging algorithm to allow better control of gas recycling and plate corrosion. This desulfating charger can rejuvenate batteries that have been left uncharged for extended periods of time, such as motorcycle, ATV, and tractor batteries. The charger is fully isolated from the mains, has universal AC input, and a removable AC cord. Although designed for sealed lead acid and gel batteries, these will also accurately charge flooded and automobile batteries.

These chargers are also used as higher efficiency charger replacements and retrofits for 12 volt safety lights.

Charging algorithm
This is the "European" charge algorithm that does not float charge the battery at the last stage, but still keeps it maintained. (see the graph below)
Constant current/constant voltage/float
Stage 1 desulfation. A 200mA constant current source is applied to the battery. When the battery accepts the 200mA at a voltage less than 13.9 volts the charger moves to "bulk charge." This could happen within seconds if the battery is not sulfated.
Stage 2 bulk charge stage. 3.5 amps is applied to the battery until the voltage rises to 14.4 volts.
Stage 4 pulsing charge. The current is switched between 300mA and 3000 mA. If, during the 300mA part of the cycle the battery drops below 13.3 volts a new pulse is started. If the voltage stays above 13.3V for more than 30 minutes (verification stage) the charge is terminated.
Stage 5. The voltage is measured and then the voltage falls below 12.7 volts the charger returns to stage 2.

"European" charge algorithm uses desulfation, bulk charge and pulse charge phases

How to desulfate a battery

The desulfation or rejuvenation algorithm works by detecting that the battery charge current is low even when the charge voltage is high. This can mimic a fully charged battery, so additional information is needed. This is done by increasing the voltage up to 18 volts with a small current limit. If the battery reaches that current limit without much additional voltage the charger signals that the battery is fully charged. If, however, the current limit isn't reached by 17 or 18 volts the charger signals that the battery is sulfated and automatically goes into the desulfation charge as is shown in the above diagram. When the desulfation is complete the charger switches into the bulk charge mode. We have found this very effective in rejuvenating sulfated batteries, but if the battery has lost a lot of water the battery will not have much capacity left.


OEM Battery Chargers Much lighter and smaller than transformer based chargers

OEM Battery Chargers Can be left on the 12V battery to maintain the battery, for example over the winter.

OEM Battery Chargers Very low cost
