Charger Knowledge

Charging the vehicle battery now and then
User chargers or consumer chargers are particularly easy to use and easy to maintain. They allow quick charging in between or when the battery is stored for a longer period of time before it is used again, e.g. a starter battery in a classic car that …
Cleanliness pays off
To ensure proper battery function, it makes sense to keep the battery surface clean and dry. Greasy or silicone-containing dirt on the lid can hinder the flow of current. Moisture on the battery can cause a short circuit in the worst case.
Chargers for traction batteries
As with supply batteries, traction batteries are used in cyclic applications, i.e. the batteries are used until they are quite empty and are charged during idle times. Here, the charger is part of an effective drive application. The efficiency of the …
When is a multi-voltage charger worthwhile?
Electronic chargers can support different voltages. Depending on whether you only want to charge a car starter battery or also a scooter, motorhome supply battery or drive battery for small vehicles or industrial trucks, it may be worth reaching for a …
Chargers in the showroom or car dealership
Showroom chargers are ideal for car dealers. They protect the battery while customers are test-seating the vehicle in the dealership. Consumers such as lights, cockpit displays and multimedia devices require power here during every demonstration, even …
What does that even mean? Charging curve?
Current and voltage during charging can be measured and displayed as a curve over the course of the charging time. Depending on which processes, controls by switch-off (a) or switch-over points (0) are possible with a charger, one speaks of the provided charging characteristics.
Chargers for supply batteries
In order to supply the connected consumers permanently, supply batteries usually have a larger capacity than starter batteries, which are intended to deliver a lot of power, especially in the short term. Chargers designed for starter batteries reach their …
AGM or GEL drive batteries
Drive batteries in AGM or GEL technology are sealed, absolutely maintenance-free, leak-proof batteries in a closed design with a fixed electrolyte (in fleece or gel). Both are suitable for medium to heavy cyclic use, for example in cleaning machines, …
Batteries without vent hose
Only conventional, wet batteries need a vent hose, because they gas strongly during operation. The resulting steam can escape through the openings in the plugs. To prevent the vapour from damaging the vehicle, conventional batteries are vented to the …
Chargers for rescue and safety vehicles
Emergency and rescue vehicles and other safety-related types of vehicles often sit around for months, but when it comes down to it, they need to be ready at a moment's notice to put out fires, rescue injured people or clear roads. Chargers like the Fronius …
