Baintech DC-DC Lithium Battery Innovation
Baintech has launched a new 150Ah Lithium Battery with In-built DC-DC Charger and DC-DC reverse switch to charge your starter battery from your lithium battery. Providing 100A of continuous discharge; parallel to provide higher power requirements.
- In-built 20A DC-DC Charger
- 150Ah Capacity
- Compact size : (LxDxH) 265 x 163 x 240
- Australian Engineered
- 5-year warranty
- Reverse switch to charge starter battery
- Lightweight 14kg
- Prismatic lithium iron phosphate cells
Other features of the DC-DC charger include three (3) switches:
Current Selection Switch
This switch allows you to select the amp charge rate from 10A to 20A.
Most vehicle cigarette sockets on the dashboard are rated for 10A only. So, if you are using the 10A vehicle cigarette socket to charge the lithium battery then select the 10A on the rocker switch.
If your vehicle is fitted with a 20A connection, or you are connecting directly to the start battery, then you can select the 20A charge setting on the battery.
Beware: If you select 20A when connected via a standard cigarette socket, you may blow the fuse connected to that circuit in your vehicle.
This switch provides the ability to reverse the DC charge direction (Out) so that the lithium battery can be used to charge a flat vehicle start battery. The normal charge direction (In) uses the vehicle alternator to charge the lithium battery via the start battery.
Note – this feature is not intended to ‘jump start’ the starter battery. It is a controlled charge (at the selected current based on the switch, 10A or 20A). So, you might need to wait for 30-60 minutes before the start battery is sufficiently charged to crank the vehicle engine, depending on how flat the start battery is.
External Shunt Switch
An external shunt can be applied across the two (2) black negative terminals to measure current in and out of the battery for accurate state of charge measurement, including charge current from the built-in DC-DC charger.
If an external shunt is applied, select Yes.
If there is no external shunt applied (which is the default case) select No. This connects the 2 black negative terminals together internally.
