The Chargers of Choice for Major Manufacturers
Multi Stage Battery Chargers
There are many different types of chargers and even more algorithms that charger manufacturers update with advancements in battery technology. Charger manufacturers create algorithms that determine what current and voltage output the charger delivers to a battery. Lead Acid, Gel and AGM batteries are inefficient and build up heat during charging which can cause the battery to swell, leak acid and damage the plates. The algorithms are designed to minimize these effects.
There are typically 3 stages to charging a Lead Acid, Gel or AGM battery - Bulk, Absorb and Float.
1. The Bulk stage: is where the charger will typically deliver a steady amount of current at its highest rate to get the battery filled quickly. (many times during charging the charger may slow down the bulk amperage to prevent damage due to heat build up)
2. The absorb stage: At the absorb stage the charger will begin to slow down the amperage as the battery charger is reaching the voltage to which it is set to charge the battery up to.
3. The float stage: is the voltage to which a battery would normally float down down and sit at while fully charged. The charger will hold the voltage at this stage by delivering a small amount of current.

Built In Battery Protection System
Smart Battery Lithium Batteries have a built in Battery Protection System (BPS) that protects the cells from over charge / discharge allowing them to be used with a standard battery charger for Lead Acid, Gel or AGM Batteries. In some cases a standard charger may not fully charge a Smart Battery, We recommend you purchase a Smart Battery Charger from Smart Battery to get the best performance and longest life out of our batteries.
Smart Battery Lithium Batteries work with any Inverter / Charger designed for Lead Acid, Gel or AGM Batteries. Smart Battery recommends programming the remote for your inverter / charger to the following specifications:
If your Inverter / Charger does not have a setting for the voltage you can choose the best setting by selecting either a Lead Acid, Gel or AGM profile that gets the voltage during bulk or absorb closest to 14.6V. If you are not able to change anything about your battery type and your charger is not programmable you will want to check to see what voltage your charger charges up to to be sure it will get around 14.4V - 14.6V during charging to sufficiently charge the Smart Battery. If your charger only charges to 13.9V this will not fully charge the battery and does not hurt it just like only filling your gas tank 80% full.
Smart Battery Lithium Batteries work with all standard solar controllers. We recommend programming your controller to the following specifications:
Lithium Powered Solar Generator - Solar Cube
This Full Electric Generator is powered by a Smart Battery 12V 100AH Lithium Ion Battery and a 1500 watt 120V AC Power Inverter. 5 High Output Solar Panels recharge the Lithium Battery by the sun. The unit is completely self-sufficient and has an integrated collapsible handle and oversize wheels to make transporting it on or off your boat a breeze. The 1500 watt Inverter can provide AC power to TV's, Refrigerators, Freezers, Small AC units and almost any other electrical appliance aboard your boat.
The Solar Lithium Generator is an ideal alternative to those noisy, fume laden, generators. Requiring no fuel and emitting zero fumes, the Solar Lithium Generator is completely self sustained and ready to use out of the box.
