The VCC 1212-30 from German leisure electronics specialist Votronic is a compact and lightweight battery-to-battery (DC-DC) charger designed to charge your 12V leisure battery from your alternator whilst on the move. The highly efficient charging technology means that better use can be made of the alternator's charging capability (up to 30A can be passed), resulting in significantly reduced charging times and more complete charging. Even during short journeys a high level of recharge is possible, with a deep and full recharge achieved during longer journeys. Alternator voltage fluctuations and surge currents are eliminated which protects your leisure battery and connected consumers from harm, and the multi-stage charging profiles ensure your battery can never be over-charged. It features fully automatic operation and the starter and lesiure batteries are electrically isolated when the vehicle's engine is off, ensuring you cannot drain one battery from the other.

It can be fitted to vehicles with either standard or Euro 6 'smart' alternators and the selectable charging profiles mean it can be used with any type of lead-acid battery, as well as lithium LiFePO4  batteries. The great benefit of this charger over its rivals is its compact footprint which, at only 146 (L) x 67 (H) mm means that it can be fitted in virtually any location, making it ideal in installation where space is limited.

The Integrated Vehicle Power Supply Filter ensures that parallel charging sources (e.g. battery chargers, solar, generators etc.) can be used on the same battery without any issues and the unit can trickle charge your starter battery with a small 'bypass' current when your leisure battery is connected to a mains-powered charger. A battery temperature sensor is also included that can be used to optimse the charging voltages based on the ambient temperature.

Votronic 12v/12v 30A B TO B CHARGER
Friday, 12 June 2020  | 

It's tiny compared to a sterling b to b. But it's the best thing i have bought, i did have to reduce my cable size from 100amp to 16awg i have 2x 200amp batterys and solar and it charges them also fit kill switch's from starter batt to leisure batt and don't forget about fuses it does not mension them on the instructions, it's suitable for boats, campervans the remote control is good as well, bigger than the charger and easy to use once you get the hang of it, overall it's way better than anything sterling has to offer and cheaper too

I like how small this charger is, fits snug in the space I have next to my LB. So far it's worked a treat at keeping the LB topped up.
