The Blue Smart IP22 Charger is the new professional battery charger with built-in Bluetooth. This 12V 20A 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 IP22 12V 20A Charger Features:
- Optimal battery charge management for long battery life
- Six stages smart charge algorithm
- Recovery of fully discharged ‘dead’ batteries
- Power supply function
- Severe cold performance: down to -20°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 IP22 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.

The Blue Smart IP22 Charger is the wireless solution to monitor voltage and current, to change settings and to update the charger when new features become available.
With up to 94% 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.
Adaptive 6-stage charge algorithm: test – bulk – absorption – recondition – float – storage
The Blue Smart Charger features a microprocessor controlled ‘adaptive’ battery management. The adaptive feature will automatically optimize the charging process relative to the way the battery is being used.
Storage Mode: less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use
The storage mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge for 24 hours. In the storage mode, float voltage is reduced to 2.2V/cell (13.2V for a 12V battery) to minimize gassing and corrosion of the positive plates. Once a week the voltage is raised back to the absorption level to ‘equalize’ the battery. This feature prevents stratification of the electrolyte and sulfation, a major cause of early battery failure.
Also charges Li-ion batteries Li-ion batteries are charged with a simple bulk – absorption – float algorithm.
Fully discharged battery recovery function
Will initiate charging even if the battery has been discharged to zero volts. Will reconnect to a fully discharged Li-ion battery with an internal disconnect function.
NIGHT and LOW setting When in NIGHT or LOW mode
The output current is reduced to max. 50% of the nominal output and the charger will be totally noiseless. The NIGHT mode automatically ends after 8 hours. The LOW mode can be ended manually.
Protected against overheating
Output current will reduce as temperature increases up to 50°C, but the Blue Smart Charger will not fail
Eleven LEDs for status indication
Charge algorithm: TEST / BULK / ABSORPTION / RECONDITION / FLOAT / STORAGE / READY. MODE button to set: NORMAL (14.4V) / HIGH (14.7V) / RECONDITION / LI-ION.
