This charger range represents the latest in professional charging technology, utilising a seven-step charging algorithm to get the best out of your battery. ensuring better performance and longer life. Unlike other brands, the Blue Smart chargers will attempt to recharge a deeply-discharged battery by force-feeding it with a low current. Normal charging will then be resumed as soon as there is sufficient voltage across the battery terminals.  Built-in Bluetooth allows you to monitor the status of your charger via any Android or Apple device and all settings of the charger can be configured with the VictronConnect app.

Includes crocodile clips and 8mm ring terminals for battery connection.

Recommended for batteries with a capacity in the range of 50 - 150Ah (modern cars, medium-large leisure batteries, boats)

Great charger. Has managed to revive my old AGM battery. Easy to use, robust and so far great.

As a charger it's fine; Bluetooth a bit iffy

This seems to be a perfectly good battery charger. Solid construction, easy to mount, comes with two alternative connection leads, stays cool, works well. If all you need is a good charger then it's excellent.

If however you need the advertised Bluetooth functionality, then take a look at the App page on the Google Play Store ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.victronenergy.victronconnect ) before you buy. There are quite a lot of complaints there about unnecessary permissions and it simply not working. I have been quite unable to get the app to connect to the charger on my phone.

Seems to work fine for its basic functionality though.

Best price online and great support

After looking for weeks on the best charger for my selfbuilt camper and decided on this brand. I didn't know on what exact model and 12volt planet is the only company that had a fast customer service that answered my questions. Even Victron could not help.
Another point worth noting is that most other sellers and eBay sellers for similar price will sell with a EU plug while 12v sell the cheapest one with a UK plug.

I used the website a lot for with all the help given online and great customer service.

Thank you
