The Blue Smart IP67 Charger is the new professional battery charger with built-in Bluetooth. This 7A 12A 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 IP67 7A 12V Charger Features:
- Water, dirt and oil resistant
- Five stage charge algorithm
- Recovery of fully discharged ‘dead’ batteries
- Power supply function
- Severe cold performance: down to -20°C
- LEDs for status indication
- Low power mode to charge smaller batteries
- Li-ion battery mode
- Setup and configure, readout of voltage and current by Bluetooth and APP.
Bluetooth Smart enabled
The Blue Smart IP67 Charger is the wireless solution to monitor voltage and current, to change settings and to update the charger when new features become available. With Bluetooth, the functionality of the IP67 charger is enhanced and is similar to that of our IP22 and IP65 chargers.
Completely encapsulated: waterproof, shockproof and ignition protected
Water, oil or dirt will not damage the Blue Smart IP67 Charger. The casing is made of cast aluminum and the electronics are moulded in resin.
Setting a new industry standard: with 92% efficiency or better, these chargers waste three to four times less heat. And once the battery is fully charged, power consumption reduces to less than a Watt, some five to ten times better than the industry standard.
Adaptive 5-stage charge algorithm
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 ageing 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 sulphation, a major cause of early battery failure.
Also charges Li-ion (LiFePO₄) batteries
LiFePO₄ batteries are charged with a simple bulk – absorption – float algorithm.
Protected against overheating
Can be used in a hot environment such as a machine room. Output current will reduce as temperature increases up to 60°C, but the charger will not fail.
Two LEDs for status indication
Yellow LED: bulk charge (blinking fast), absorption (blinking slow), float (solid), storage (off)
Green LED: power on
Simon B. –
The Victron 12V 7A Blue Smart IP67 Charger is my personal favourite charger. It’s only 7A, which means it can be used on a wide range of batteries, small to large. For example, I use the charger on my 9Ah lithium fish finder battery, my 100Ah trolling motor battery AND on my flooded motorcycle battery. The Bluetooth app makes it easy to adjust the charge settings to meet the charge requirement for each battery.
