REDARC launches 50amp in-vehicle battery charger

Australian manufacturer, REDARC Electronics is proud to introduce the new, bigger, more powerful 12-volt dual input 50amp dc to dc charger (BCDC1250D) to the North American market.

The REDARC BCDC1250D in-vehicle battery charger supplies the correct charge to the auxiliary battery whilst preventing a flat start battery. Having the secondary battery correctly and fully charged will allow users to power all their gadgets whilst on the move.

And with its 50-amp charging output, the BCDC1250D is the most powerful in REDARC’s BCDC range making it ideal to quickly power 12-volt electrical accessories in a trailer, motorhome or caravan, such as electrical hydraulic pumps, fridges, lights, tailgates, phones, laptops and camera chargers whilst on the move.

The BCDC1250D 12 volt battery charger has been developed to provide a higher current output, it features an additional charging stage known as SoftStart which has been engineered so that it can handle more demanding applications.

Like the 25amp and 40amp variants in the BCDC Dual range, the BCDC1250D has separate vehicle DC and solar inputs which greatly simplifies the installation process. The unit will charge from solar panels and the vehicle’s start battery simultaneously and, with in-built ‘Green Power Priority’, it will select solar charging first, taking the load off the vehicle alternator.

Tested and proven to charge an auxiliary battery to 100% state of charge, the BCDC1250D provides specific charging profiles for all common battery types including AGM, standard lead acid, calcium and lithium iron phosphate (LiFeP04) batteries.

It is compatible with fixed, temperature compensating and variable voltage (smart) alternators and works with 12 and 24-volt vehicle electrical systems.

REDARC's Export Manager, Mr Craig Herriot, said that REDARC’s BCDC Dual range has been well received in the North American market.

“The dual input BCDC’s have proven to be popular with the end users and the feedback we have received has been overwhelmingly positive. The addition of a 50amp model will allow the consumer to charge higher capacity RV batteries or multiple battery banks.”

With 40 years’ experience in the research, design, development and manufacture of battery chargers, REDARCs’ knowledge of North American conditions has been factored into the engineering of every unit, allowing REDARC products to set a new industry standard.

The BCDC1250D is now available for purchase through the REDARC website and will be available through REDARC’s key distribution channels from September 2019. It will also be on display at the upcoming NATDA Trade Show & Convention held in St. Louis, MO from September 5th – 7th.
