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

Decent charger, terrible instructions.
Sunday, 24 April 2022  | 

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

Charger for 240v electric hook up.
Tuesday, 27 October 2020  | 

Product is designed for motorhomes and campervans so should have a pwer supply lead that clips closed rather than a kettle type plug.

Also doesn't have a 240v output to give a charging signal to the smart control system in the motorhhome.

21 amp battery charger.

The purchase process a delivery were efficient and speedy, with the ability to track and know in advance exactly when the item would arrive being particularly appreciated.
The product is clearly built to a high standard and works perfectly.
I fitted mine without connecting any of the optional extra connections of battery temp sensing and EBC used, and it is fine.
My only gripe would be that the instructions did not make clear to a layman that these extra connections were optional and were somewhat confusing. For the product and service I would give 5 stars, for the ease of fitting due to the rather poor instructions I would give 3 stars. I would definitely recommend this company.

Product generally good. Instructions not easy to follow. The toggle switches that need switching for different battery types are not easy to get to. The additional wires for the line, ntc and end are still not clear to me. Leads from charger to battery are not very long.
