My Generator customer, Cindy from Esk, QLD reviews the Redarc 12V 25A In-vehicle DC to DC charger. Purchased at mygenerator.com.au

This DC to DC Redarc battery charger is the most advanced dual battery charger on the market. It features a Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) solar regulator and will charge from both solar and alternator simutaneously.

It is suitable for both 12V and 24V vehicle systems and can charge AGM, Gel, Standard Lead Acid, Calcium and LiFePO4 batteries.

The BCDC1225D Redarc battery charger was built and tested for the harsh Australian conditions meaning it will work in the extreme heat of the Simpson Desert, up to 80°C and can handle deep water crossings at Cape York – water, dust and vibration are no match for this charger.

Today we’re going to take a look at the Manager 30 Battery Management system, with Lithium Profile now this is going to be a very versatile system to have in your RV or your caravan, and it’s going to allow you to do a couple different things in one. It’s going to incorporate six different products into one system. We’ll have our DC to DC charger, or 110 volt charger, solar charger, dual battery isolator. as well as a load disconnect controller and a remote battery monitor.This has a charging algorithm to prioritize using solar power when available and it’s applicable. So it can be as energy efficient as possible and also as environmentally friendly as possible. Our DC to DC charger is going to line up the best charging for your RV’s house batteries, even if they have different chemical compositions or voltage outputs.The state of charge or SOC indication is going to let you see how charged your battery is and how long is it’s going take for it to get fully charged, with an easy to read, user-friendly graphic display.

This is going to be our wall mounts. We can either mount this just directly on the wall, like it is here, or you can also mount this backing plate behind the wall, so you can have more of a flush mount design, so that only this outer portion would show. It’s going to be really nice to be able to see that in our RV or in our vehicle.It also has reverse polarity protection, so you don’t have to worry about crossing your positive and negative connections. It also has a short circuit protection, making it very real reliable and safe.We’re going to have different charging profiles, so it can safely work with lead acid batteries as well as lithium iron phosphate batteries. It’s also going to work with gel, calcium, and absorbed glass mat or AGM batteries as well.There’s no need to worry about draining your vehicle’s battery, since this is also going to have an automatic disconnect.

You won’t have to worry about your battery being dead by the time you get to where you’re going, because it’s been charging your batteries the whole time, because it’ll, again, cut that connection so you don’t have to worry about not being able to start your vehicle.We’ll also have a standalone battery sensor that’s going to constantly monitor the temperature, voltage, and current, even when the Manager 30 isn’t a standby mode. It has an automatic temperature and voltage drop compensation, and there’s no fan in this is, so it’s going to be very, very quiet and also, again, very durable and reliable.It’s made in Australia for Australian conditions, so it’s going to be a very high quality made product. It’s made to ISO 9001 quality standards, as well as ISO 14001 environmental standards. This is also going to be backed by a two year warranty from REDARC.So again, this is going to be a really useful, versatile system. Just going to monitor and calculate the power usage, so you always know how much you have remaining in your batteries and where your your power’s coming from.

On the side, we’ll have all of our connections there for different outputs and inputs. We’ll have our connector to go into that, so we can get everything wired up correctly.We’ll also have our T-connector, or our TPs. This is going to have our RJ45 and RJ12 insert. We’ll have our Can-Bus cables, one that’s going to be 16’4″ long, and then one that’s just going be 3’3″ long. We have our power cable, our battery sensor, our remote wall output, and then again our main unit here.That main unit is going to measure about 16″ long.

The mounting flange is going to be a little bit longer. That’s going to be about 17-1/2″ inches. The center of each of those holes to mount that up, it’s going to be about 17-1/4″ apart, center-to-center there. Going in the other direction, it’s going to be about 3-1/4″ apart there. Overall, that mounting flange is going to be about 4-1/4″ long. Our width is going to be about 7-1/4″, and then it’s going to stand about 3″ tall. So you can see it there.This is also going to come with detailed instructions on how to get everything wired up. They have this really nicely laid out, gives you all kinds of information about your battery profiles and how all that’s going to work, and how to mount up your wall mount as well. So that comes with it as well. Makes it really easy to install.Again, this is going to work for all vehicles and alternator systems, including variable voltage alternators. Our system output is going to be 12V DC. The current output is going to

What is a REDARC SBI and what does it do?



The Smart Battery Isolator, or SBI, allows your auxiliary battery to charge from the alternator while the vehicle is running, and protect the start battery from discharging when the engine is off.

It can also be used in-conjunction with an in-vehicle battery charger, or BCDC, to allow the start battery to be jump started from the auxiliary battery in the event that the start battery is discharged or fails.

In a dual battery setup where one battery is used as a starter battery to operate the vehicle and one as a secondary to run electrical devices, the SBI ensures your start battery doesn’t run flat when you use your secondary battery while the engine is turned off.

When the engine is turned off, and therefore the alternator is no longer running, the start battery will drop below 12.7 volts and the SBI will disengage the secondary battery. This will stop any loads connected to the auxiliary battery from draining the start battery.

What is a REDARC BCDC and what does it do?



The in-vehicle battery charger, or BCDC, keeps the auxiliary battery charged whilst driving, ensuring your secondary battery is charged to a proven 100% no matter its type or size.

The Dual Input range incorporates a MPPT solar regulator, allowing you to charge from solar panels and blankets, lessening the load on vehicle alternators.

The DC charger uses a multi-stage charging profile to ensure auxiliary batteries are charged to 100%, whereas a Smart Battery Isolator will only ‘top up’ the secondary battery as it
focuses on the state of charge of the primary battery.

In a dual battery setup where one battery is used as a starter battery to operate the vehicle and one as a secondary to run electrical devices, you need a BCDC. It offers greater flexibility for your dual battery setup, not only in terms of correct charging for your specific battery, but also suitability for different alternator types, installation location, and battery size.
