Description

  • Temperature-compensated to ensure optimum charge voltage according to ambient temperature
  • Unique Gel Cell battery adjusted software allows for a slightly lower charge voltage and higher store voltage to protect sensitive true Gel Cell batteries
  • Lower voltage for specific use on GEL batteries only
  • Complete 4-step charging program (initialization, bulk charge, absorption mode and float mode) allows for optimal constant battery levels without overcharging
  • Automatically switches to float/maintenance voltage mode after fully charging the battery
  • The Battery Tender Plus 12-volt/1.25-amp Battery Charger True Gel Cell model is the best way to deal with the challenge
    of keeping 12-volt vehicle batteries optimally powered when not in use, especially for users who own true Gel Cell
    batteries. It is not only able to charge any 12-volt lead-acid battery, its specially adjusted internal software allows
    for a slightly lowered voltage level that protects sensitive Gel Cell batteries from the dangers of overcharging. It is
    also designed to be easy to use in difficult spaces, to utilize a 4-step charging program and safely function in a fully
    automatic mode. Taken together this makes the special Gel Cell version of the Battery Tender Plus 12-volt/1.25-amp
    Battery Charger an excellent means of ensuring that all your batteries are fully charged and ready to go when you are.

    What's a Gel Cell?
    The Gel Cell battery is similar to the AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) battery in that its contents are sealed, but different
    because technically the AGM battery is still considered to be a wet cell. The guts of a Gel Cell contain a silica
    additive that causes it to set up or stiffen, first like Jell-O, then after subsequent discharge/charge cycles more like
    peanut brittle. Micro-cracks form in this gelled electrolyte that provide paths for the oxygen recombination reactions
    between the positive and negative plates. The recharge voltages on this type of cell are lower than the other styles of
    lead acid battery making it probably the most sensitive cell in terms of adverse reactions to over-voltage charging, and
    thus needing special care. Safe, 4-step Battery Charging for True Gel-Cell Batteries
    Powered by BTP microprocessor technology and utilizing a 4-step charging program (initialization, bulk charge,
    absorption mode and float mode), the Battery Tender Plus 12-volt/1.25-amp Battery Charger allows you to simply connect
    the charger to a battery, either in or out of a vehicle, and forget about it until you are ready to put the battery to
    work. Like all Battery Tender chargers, at the end of the regular charger cycle it automatically switches its output
    voltage to a safe, storage or float level which eliminates the need to worry about the damaging effects of overcharging,
    and the resulting need to check on the condition of the battery. This is taken even further with the Gel Cell model,
    which possess a higher store rate and lower charge rate, minimizing the chance of mistaken overcharging. The unit also
    features sparkproof connectors, short circuit and reverse polarity protection, an easy to understand charging status LED
    indicator, a quick connect harness for use in hard to reach areas and almost no current draw from batteries connected
    to.

    Key Features:

    * Unique Gel Cell battery adjusted software.
    * Perfect for all lead-acid, flooded or sealed maintenance free batteries (AGM and Gel Cell).
    * Complete 4-step charging program (initialization, bulk charge, absorption mode and float mode).
    * Automatically switches to float/maintenance voltage after fully charging the battery.
    * If the battery voltage drops too far under load, full charger output power resumes.
    * Temperature compensated to ensure optimum charge voltage according to ambient temperature.
    * Solid state two color LED indicates stage of charger.
    * Spark proof and reverse polarity protected.
    * Includes quick connect harness for use in hard to reach areas.
    * 10 year warranty.

    *Note: All Deltran battery chargers will charge all types of lead acid batteries: either flooded (standard
    STD), sealed maintenance free Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM), or sealed maintenance free gelled electrolyte (GEL)
    batteries. However, for optimum battery performance in deep cycle applications (for example, running a trolling
    motor), it is best to chose the Deltran charger that has the charging software specifically designed for the
    battery type. Fortunately, since the technical staff at Deltran has developed charging software that works equally
    well for both STD & AGM batteries, the only choice to be made is between 2 models: either STD & AGM or GEL
    software.
