Nordelettronica chargers are fitted as original equipment by many caravan and motorhome manufacturers and the NE287 is the latest incarnation of their charger range. As well as being ideal for fitment in new conversions, they can be used to replace any older Nordelettronica charger fitted in a caravan or motorhome that needs replacing.

The 3 stage, intelligent charging algorithm uses a combination of constant voltage and constant current to ensure that your battery is always properly charged and the unit can be powered permanently without any risk of damaging the battery. It is suitable for charging any lead-acid battery type, including wet/flooded, sealed, AGM and Gel and the charge profile can be selected for the battery type using the dip switches on the front of the unit. It is also suitable for charging Lithium batteries.

The NE287 features full protection against damage from reverse polarity, over current, over-temperature etc. and comes with cables for easy installation.  A temperature sensor is also included to enable the charger to optimise its output voltage according to the ambient temperature (optional fitment).  It can also act as a fixed voltage power supply when not connected to a battery, supplying 13.8V to power connected loads.

This 21A model is recommend for batteries (or banks of batteries) with a capacity in the range 130 - 210Ah

excellent product and service.
would recommend.

No one is getting the message about lack of information
21 July 2023  | 

As with many reviews below going back several years I am frustrated that a manufacturer or reseller cannot put together straightforward, informative information about the ancilliary connections on these charger/power supplies. Clearly no one is reading these reviews, otherwise why would they not? We are not all experts, so information if vital to get the most out of any product. Come on guys.. get it together for your customers


Thank you for leaving us this feedback. We are aware that the instructions are not the clearest and we have fed this back to the manufacturer.

Nordelettronica NE287 12V Battery Charger - 21A
09 January 2023  | 

I bought this item to replace an old broken battery charger in my camper. I initially phoned 12 volt planet to enquire about the output and whether it was ok to charge 2 x 100ah batteries wired in parallel. The person I spoke to was helpful and knowledgable about the product and advised that it would be sufficient for the purpose.
I've now wired it into my camper and it works fine. I'm very happy with the charger.




Hi Robert, thank you for the feedback, it is much appreciated. Glad you are happy with the product and the service received.

Decent charger, terrible instructions.

The charger itself seems a nice bit of kit, but the instructions are awful. There is just not enough information in them. And the information that is there I didn’t find very clear.

Great product but lacking instructions

The product is really good quality and well built. Perfect for a camper conversion. But comes with almost no fitting instructions or clear guide to the settings.
5 stars for the device itself but desperately needs a new manual

Good product, good support.

Replaced with same make which was faulty. Replaced and all working again. Called the company and received prompt support. Will comeback again. Thanks.

Only used once as yet, however seems to work very well. Gives much better power output than my last unit and seems to run much cooler.

Bought to replace an older version that failed in my Motorhome. Arrived in good time and was very easy to install. A high quality product.

Hyvä tuote

Hyvin valmistettu ja toimiva, mutta ollut vasta vähän aikaa käytössä. Laitteella on kahden vuoden takuu, jos tulee ongelmia.

Well made and functional, but only used for a short time. The device has a two-year warranty in case of problems.

Excellent charger but ......

The information is good for the main function of this charger but alittle more is required for the accessory connections
