Battery charger suggestion.

icarusicarus Solar Expert Posts: 5,400 ✭✭✭✭
Since Xantrex has stopped production of the TC series of chargers, what would folks recommend for a charger for a single 12v ~100ah deepcycle truck camper battery?

It will be powered by gird power, and ideally be on all the time the camper is "in port".

I suggested to these friends that they get a Xantrex TC 10. It seems that the current version starts at 20 amps.

Once again thanks for the help in advance.

    Tony the TrueCharge 2 series starts at the 20 amp model, but if the remote control is purchased with it, then it can then scale the charger output back in 10% increments. The remote was meant to be available mid 2009.

    The new X Truecharge 2 units offer PFC charging, Temp Compensation and a wide input power range between 85 and 260 volts AC 50-60 Hz. So could be used with a generator when out of shore dock.

    The TC10 is still available if our host doesnt have them I can let u know of some one in US who does.

    Tony, I have been happy the the IOTA 15 amp charger in my little trailer. It has worked fine for 10 years now.

    Mike, Thanks,

    The IOTA was going to be my next choice. I think I will write to NAWS and see what the story with Xantrex is. They have them listed on the web site as a supplier, but with non on the web pages.
