REDARC has released the latest edition of their co-branded DEFA AC Battery Charger range to the Australian and New Zealand market, a 12V 30A Showroom Charger (Part number SBC1230-S).

The Showroom Charger is designed for long-term battery maintenance charging, providing fast battery charge when you need. It is ideal for use in vehicle showrooms, or at home connected to infrequently used vehicles, RV’s, caravans or boats.

When in use, it can be placed under a vehicle, out of the view. The clamping cable is detachable and easily passed through the engine bay. The charger has no fan meaning it is noise-free. All of which allows the unit to remain incognito in a vehicle showroom or garage.

“As vehicle technology continues to improve, there is an increased demand for battery support and maintenance. The benefits are clear for not only vehicle showrooms but also home garages, with a safe and versatile battery charger that is able to deliver a quick charge to batteries that may be used infrequently.” – Managing Director of REDARC

The REDARC Showroom Charger by DEFA is based on modern switch-mode technology and galvanic isolation. The charger represents the latest in long-term battery maintenance charging and will maximise the lifespan of a battery. It uses a 7-step charging process to optimise battery performance and longevity.
