Isolated DC Source Chargers for charging 12 volt lead acid batteries from a 12 volt (8-16 volt) source
Charge a small battery from a large one, or from an automobile, truck, tractor or back-hoe. This DC converter automatically converts any voltage from 8V to 16V to 13.8V for battery charging. It has a active current limit of 8 amps. It also features total isolation so the input ground is galvanically isolated from the output ground. This could be used for charging negative grounded batteries in a postitive ground car, and vice versa.
Inexpensive fully isolated taper style controlled lead acid battery charger voltage charger with 8 VDC to 16 VDC input. Used to charge 12 volt lead acid batteries when only DC voltage is available. It cannot overcharge the battery.
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: Yes, the output is fully isolated from the input, so there is no danger in confusing grounds.
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 "constant current" 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 I charge my 12 volt golf caddy from my car?
Yes, the charge time should be less than 2 hours for a fully depleted golf trolley.
