The Blue Smart IP65 Charger is the new professional battery charger with built-in Bluetooth. This 12V 10A Charger can be used on devices in your workshop and on motor vehicles, such as (classic) cars; motorbikes; boats and camper-vans and can be used on both AGM and lithium batteries.
Victron IP65 12V 10A Charger Features:
- Water, dust and chemical resistant
- Seven steps smart charge algorithm
- Recovery of fully discharged ‘dead’ batteries
- Automatic power supply function
- Severe cold performance: down to -30°C
- Several other battery life enhancing features
- Low power mode to charge smaller batteries
- Li-ion battery mode
- Setup and configure, readout of voltage and current by Bluetooth Smart
The VictronConnect App Setup
Readout and configure your Blue Smart IP65 Charger via your smartphone!
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 the default.

Ultra high efficiency “green” battery charger
With up to 95% efficiency, these chargers generate up to four times less heat when compared to the industry standard. And once the battery is fully charged, power consumption reduces to 0.5 Watt, some five to ten times better than the industry standard. Durable, safe and silent – Low thermal stress on the electronic components. – Protection against ingress of dust, water and chemicals. – Protection against overheating: the output current will reduce as temperature increases up to 60°C, but the charger will not fail. – The chargers are totally silent: no cooling fan or any other moving parts.
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 a low current up to a higher voltage.
Recovery function for fully discharged batteries
Most reverse polarity-protected chargers will not recognize, and therefore not recharge a battery that has been discharged to zero or nearly zero Volts. The Blue Smart IP65 Charger however will attempt to recharge a fully discharged battery with low current and resume normal charging once sufficient voltage has developed across the battery terminals.
Less corrosion of the positive plates Even 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 for more than 48 hours.
The optimal charge voltage of a lead-acid battery varies inversely with temperature. The Blue Smart IP65 Charger measures ambient temperature during the test phase and compensates for temperature during the charging process. The temperature is measured again when the charger is in the low current mode during float or storage. Special settings for a cold or hot environment are therefore not needed.
Li-ion battery mode
The Blue Smart IP65 Charger uses a specific charging algorithm for Li-ion (LiFePO₄) batteries, with automatic Li-ion under-voltage protection reset.

I am very happy with my 12v 10A charger. Canbat got it delivered in under 3 days which is impressive. Works exactly as expected and offers reliable fast charging got offers fast charging even for larger lifepo4 batteries as well as my old lead acid batteries. The key features I noticed like the Li-ion under voltage protection reset, temperature compensation charging, and a bluetooth app for monitoring and controlling the charger are def impressive. Thanks Canbat will be coming back to you guys for sure!

If you are looking for a high-quality charger for your LiFePO4 battery, this is a great option. After long hours of charging, this 10A charger will sometimes get slightly warm, but never hot to the touch. The charger is very versatile and can be used for various batteries. It can charge lithium, lead-acid and other types. Best of all, the charger came with ring terminals and clamps which can be swapped with the plug-in line. I found the Bluetooth app very easy to use when I needed to change the charging voltage. The price Canbat offers is very competitive, especially with free shipping!

What I love about this BPC121031104R charger is that its case has openings so you can drill onto a wall. It’s nicely fixed on the wall of my garage and it’s been charging my 12V lithium battery great. I did need to adjust the setting to increase the bulk voltage to 14.6V, which is what was recommended to me when I spoke to Canbat. They did mention that the default charge settings are fine too. Anyway, great charger and highly recommended.

Great lithium charger! I am sold to Victron charger quality. The charger is pretty expensive compared to other ones, but really worth every penny I paid for. Plus, with free shipping from Canbat, the cost difference between this one and the cheap one isn’t much.

Lithium charger has been working well so far on my LiFePo4 trailer batteries. Also using it on my lead acid as a trickle charger to keep them stored during the winter season. The Bluetooth app is very convenient.

I charge a 100amp LiFePO4 battery with this IP65 Victron charger. Works awesome for our camper.

The BPC121031104R is an excellent charger. Really appreciate the Bluetooth app which not only allows me to monitor the charging cycle but also lets me adjust the settings easily.

Everything Victron makes is of great quality and I’m glad to find a company in Canada that has them in stock!
Charging at 12V 10A with a li-ion and the battery monitor reads exactly 15A (minus current usage).

If you’ve already invested in Canbat’s LiFePO4 batteries, you need to invest in a quality lithium charger to make sure your batteries are treated right. You want a charge capable of charging and maintaining those expensive batteries with the right charging profile.

I have this 10A Victron charger wired into the battery bank of 4 Canbat lithium-iron-phosphate 100 AH batteries wired in parallel. It’s charging all four batteries at the same time while all batteries are in perfect balance.

Reliable charger for those expensive LiFePO4 batteries that you don’t want to ruin with a cheap charger. I appreciate the excellent customer support I received from Canbat. They actually answer the phone, unlike many other companies I tried calling.
