Generator battery chargers are one of the most critical generator components. The battery charger is a inexpensive and often-ignored widget that keeps tens of thousands of pounds worth of generating capacity works as specified. After all, your generator is useless if it doesn’t start. Battery chargers are the tiny cogs that keeps your business operating.
Generator battery chargers are permanently connected to your generator’s battery and trickle charge it to ensure the generator starts when required.
IPU supplies two ranges of battery chargers to suit different environments and we can help you select the correct one. You can either:
The following questions should help you decide which charger you need:
We all have budgets and a battery charger might not seem like a top priority. Skimping on a battery charger and getting a cheaper model is problem solved, right?
The principle is sound but you still need to make sure you buy the right sort of charger, and in general, the higher the charging capacity (the current, Amps), the higher the cost. The fast chargers are the more expensive chargers.
The other factor that affects price is intelligence. Smarter chargers stress the battery less, therefore extending its life. The price difference between ComAp controllers (towards the smart end of the scale) and Datakom (less so) is £10 to £20. This is the fraction of the cost of a new battery.
If you have a battery in an inaccessible location, low maintenance is especially important. You might want ComAp’s InteliCharger 500 for this site because its microprocessor control means stresses the battery less than other chargers.
The overload protection on all the battery chargers ensures they cut out when the battery is fully charged which reduces stress on the battery.
IPU offers far more than simply sending you a box containing a new charger:
The Datakom 123, 243, 125 and 245 are economical chargers with 3 and 5A charging for 12 and 24V batteries.Find out more
