If you are a farmer, hobbyist, or just love to collect recreational vehicles like motorcycles, ATV’s and watercraft, you know how important it is to keep the batteries charged on all of them. Charging them one by one can be quite cumbersome, especially if they’ve been sitting in your garage all winter long.
That’s why Deltran designed this unit. The Battery Tender 022-0148-DL-WH is meant with the hobbyist in mind who has more than one vehicle to charge. This unit is designed to give a full charge to up to four 12-volt batteries.
Battery Tender 022-0148-DL-WH Main Features
- Simultaneous Charging
- Optimum Charge Ensured
The 4-Bank Battery Management System allows users to simultaneously charge up to 4 batteries at once, without compromising the integrity or the power of the battery. At a rate of 1.25 amps, this is more than just another trickle charger.
The smart technology is equipped to charge all four batteries, without fear of an overcharge or damage. They can be hooked up in or out of the vehicle, and can remain hooked up until you are ready to use it. All four vehicle batteries will be maintained to optimal levels.
It automatically switches the output voltage to a storage or float level. This means it won’t be overcharged, and you don’t need to constantly check on the condition of the battery/charge. It is a true ‘set it and forget it’ charger.
Each bank, or charging station, can charge 12-volt batteries at 1.25 amps.
The connectors are spark-proof, providing extra protection for the user, so both the professional and novice will have no problems with using the Battery Tender 022-0148-DL-WH.
