Rugged Charger

Tough chargers for harsh environments. These controllers are pre-set to charge lead acid or gel cell batteries with Constant Voltage Regulation to your required voltage.

Can by used to run electronics directly from a solar module without a battery.
No interference with radio reception/transmission.
Zero power drain on charging battery.
Designed for harsh environments and long life.

Used in the trucking industry to charge refrigeration or GPS tracking batteries by using extra power from truck lighting wire harness, this extends the battery life and ensures the batteries are ready for use at all times.

CAUTION     Reversing input polarity will damage charger
