Battery Chargers

Battery charging is key to maintaining the service life and performance of your glider batteries. Depending on the type of battery you need the correct charger. Lead Acid batteries for instance work better when cycled and charged slowly with a float charge to maintain optimum capacity. LiFePo4 batteries on the other hand can be charged much faster and can reach optimum charge in 2 hours but do not like to be float or trickle charged.

OptiMate Lithium 0.8A

 

The Optimate Lithium B 0.8A 8 stage charger is ideal for charging the PBQ 10AH LiFePo4 batteries. The charger includes a low voltage save feature, long term maintenance mode and Battery Management system auto reset. Testing is automatic on connection and auto testing over long periods of connection. This charger is ideal if you need to keep your batteries connected for long periods of time or for batteries that stay in the glider.
