The REDARC range of SmartChargers by DEFA are an AC to DC battery charger designed to automatically charge and maintain most 12v automotive starter and auxiliary batteries including Lithium (LiFeP04).


The SmartCharge range are the perfect battery chargers for people to keep in their home and garage or anywhere where you might need to charge a battery occasionally. They are ideally suited for a wide range of applications such as cars, boats, motorbikes, scooters, lawnmowers and just about anything else with a small battery that isn’t used on a regular basis.


Available in 4 variants, 4, 6, 8 and 10A they are perfect for charging car, bike and boat batteries, the 8 and 10A variants can be used to charge bigger batteries used in Caravans, Campers and RV’s.


The main advantage of the SmartCharge range is that they recognise the type of battery that you are connecting to and adjusts their charging process to suit the battery’s charge status, size and ambient temperature conditions. They also have a clear display which shows the status of charge and battery charge level.


Simple to use and operate, the SmartCharge range has only one button: On or Off with a user-friendly display which comes with an inbuilt backlight to improve legibility. Award-winning for its design and user friendliness, it is also rated to IP65 meaning it can be used in damp and outdoor environments.


The SmartCharge range is shockproof, sparkproof and is protected against reverse polarity meaning that nothing can go wrong. The range also has a practical integrated cable storage solution which allows the user to fasten the clamps to the unit when they are not in use meaning you no longer have to store your cables in a pile.


Speaking of the release, REDARC’s Manager Director Anthony Kittel said, “The addition of the SmartCharge range is a natural and logical fit to our existing power management product offerings.”


“Fuelled by the enthusiasm Australian’s have for recreational vehicles such as 4WD’s, boats and motorbikes, people from all walks of life would benefit from the flexibility and ease that the SmartCharge range offer.”


“REDARC teamed up with DEFA as we share similar values between our organizations including a focus on continuous improvement, perpetual innovation and most importantly a drive to deliver great products of the highest quality.” he added.
