Description 

This high-quality, intelligent 3-stage battery charger from UK manufacturer Rovert Electrical will keep your wet lead-acid deep-cycle leisure battery in prime condition and prolong its life whilst connected to mains power on-site or at home. It offers fully automatic charging so you can leave it connected without damaging your battery. It can also recover 'dead' batteries that have been discharged to a low voltage and which might otherwise have to be replaced. An additional feature of this charger is that it can be used as a Power Supply Unit (PSU) to directly power 12V appliances whilst connected to mains and it has in-built protection against short-circuit, over-current and thermal overload. There is an output to connect a remote LED to indicate charging status and the case has 4 holes for mounting to a flat surface (horizontal or vertical mounting).

Please note:  Battery connection leads are not included but we recommend using 4mm2 thin wall cable with 6.3mm fully insulated female blade terminals to connect to the charger.  This unit is not fitted with a 3-pin plug as it is intended to be hard-wired into a consumer unit, but one can be used if required.

Recommended for wet lead-acid leisure batteries with a capacity in the range of 150 - 200Ah.

Further information

If it works it works well

Delivered promptly and all as described. Bought to replace a non fan assisted 12 amp charger which burnt out. Particularly like the remote LED as twice in my life chargers have packed up running down the batteries while the mains LED is showing but of course no charge. Only reservation is a slight hum. Just hope it lasts.

I purchased the 20A power supply to replace a failed smaller unit. I am very happy with its performance and would recommend the product. Compact and simple to fit.

Bought this to replace an overheating BCA charger in my camper van. Very easy to wire up as long as you have the correct size dc spade terminals. Seems to generate very little heat so good for confined spaces, although still needs some ventilation. Excellent service from 12 Volt Planet. Ordered it Monday, arrived Tuesday.

This is an excellent product. I have hard wired it into my boat and it charges a 200 Ahr Leisure battery. I can monitor what is happening on a NASA battery monitor and it is the first time I have been able to fully charge the battery. The charger is barely warm when charging and does not cut out like other chargers I have used.

Ideal Battery Charger

Solar panels are great when the Sun shines, but in the UK that can be rare and our 3 battery's on the boat couldn't keep up with the demands of the Fridge!
After I installed this excellent charger, no more problems! It performs silently and recovered our tired batteries easily.

I purchased this charger to replace a BCA charger fitted as OE in my Bailey Senator Louisiana 2006MY. I also took the opportunity to re-site the charger to provide improved ventilation. Charger is exceptionally well made and does a great job
