The battery is charged, smartly and to perfect condition
The seven-step charging algorithm gets the best out of your battery. The charger gives the battery the power it needs, maintains its health, ensures better performance… and a longer life. Victron Blue Smart Chargers also feature a Storage Mode for less corrosion of the positive plates, typically most chargers only offer up to a float mode, the problem is that the lower float charge voltage that follows the absorption period will cause grid corrosion. It is therefore essential to reduce the charge voltage even further when the battery remains connected to the charger during more than 48 hours.
Recovery of deeply-discharged ‘dead’ batteries
Unlike other brands, the Blue Smart IP65 Charger 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.
Connect the battery with ease with Quick Fit connection
The charger comes supplied with both alligator clips and M8 eyelets – making it easy to connect to the battery. If you wish, you can leave it permanently connected to your battery. Additional Quick Connects and Accessories are also available to purchase separately.
Check the status of your battery remotely
The Blue Smart IP65 is equipped with built-in Bluetooth, so the status of the charger and the battery can be checked on a smartphone, tablet or laptop. All settings of the charger can be configured with the VictronConnect app. The VictronConnect app allows you to Setup, readout and configure your Blue Smart IP65 Charger via your smartphone (Apple and Android). You can display the status of your charger and battery and even control the functions of your charger using the VictronConnect app. On your screen the readout of voltage and current is default available.
A lead-acid battery that has been insufficiently charged or has been left discharged during days or weeks will deteriorate due to sulfation. If caught in time, sulfation can sometimes be partially reversed by charging the battery with low current up to a higher voltage.
