CTEK D250S Dual DC to DC Battery Charger
CTEK's DS250 DC-DC charger introduces a unique dual battery system for collecting power from any DC power sources. The main benefit of this unit is the dual DC inputs which can collect power from a vehicle alternator and solar or wind sources simultaneously.
Once properly installed you will be able to charge batteries and run accessories when driving (from alternator) and while stationary (from solar/wind).
With no need for heavy gauge wiring, solar regulators or VSR’s the system can easily and affordably be installed DIY!
The charger is suitable for 4WD vehicles, caravans, camper trailers, boats or houses running off 12V power.
For solar connection an inbuilt MPPT solar regulator allows power to be collected by simply connecting the panels directly into the charger’s input. This regulator finds the most effective combination of cell voltage and current to ensure both power inputs work in unison to maximise power output.
The intelligent 5 stage charger maximises battery life by reducing undercharge time and maximises capacity by automatically adjusting the charging voltage and current depending on the temperature of the battery and it’s state of charge.
By increasing charging voltage in cold weather a full charge is achieved and decreasing voltage in hot weather avoids issues with overcharging. Most importantly, your batteries will receive optimal charging in any conditions.
The DS250 also acts as a battery separator, eliminating the need for additional isolators, diodes or VSR relays.
This charger takes care of your batteries. By keeping a positive state of charge the charger prevents sulphate build up and stratification of battery acid, increasing the service life of the battery.
For starter batteries a maintenance charging cycle is used to keep these batteries performing at their peak.
CTEK products are designed around a basis of safety, simplicity and flexibility and with a huge 2 year warranty you can’t go wrong.
