product snapshot

The Newport Vessels 12V Smart Battery Charger is designed to be used with the battery placed on a workbench for use in its three different modes: Charging, Maintaining, and Repair. 

Charging: This unit charges at about 4 amps per hour, it is designed with short battery cables to reduce amperage drops to ensure the most consistent product performance. Note: Using it with an extension cord will result in slower charging due to the added resistance of the longer wire.

Maintaining: This charger uses pulse technology to maintain lead acid batteries when not in use.

Repair: It uses the latest 12v battery pulse charging technology to maximize the life of your battery. This unit can repair lead acid batteries that have vulcanized, "vulcanization" is a process where lead sulphate crystals have begun to form on the internal lead plates.

What is Pulse Battery Charging Technology?

This charger uses the latest in battery charging and repair technology. The charger sends a series of controlled pulses into the battery instead of a constant stream of electricity. This allows high amounts of voltage to be applied immediately to the battery, without overheating the battery.

Why does this matter?

In lead acid batteries that are typically used with our trolling motors, Pulse Charging can break down lead sulfate crystals after several uses to extend the life of your battery, something that typical battery chargers cannot do. A typical 12V battery charger can damage a deep cycle battery if left connected for too long after charging is complete.
