Caravan Battery Charger

Finding the Right Caravan Battery Charger for You

When enjoying a holiday in your camper or caravan the last thing you want is to have battery problems resulting in a frustrating and costly trip to a garage, so it’s always advisable to carry a caravan battery charger with you. There are different options, including chargers that obtain energy from DC sources and refer it to different battery banks, depending on their requirement.

The CTEK D250S DUAL is one such model that automatically selects the best connected DC energy source from two available connections, such as the alternator or solar panel, and switches between them for maximum efficiency. Whether in sunshine or snow, this caravan battery charger delivers the optimum charge because it compensates for the ambient temperature; also, being splash and dust proof it can be used in all conditions. Ideal for vehicles that do not have access to grid power supplies, charging commences the moment energy is provided through a DC source.

If you prefer a universal 12V charger that can also diagnose and solve a broad range of battery charging problems, the MXS 7.0 is great for larger batteries, like those found in caravans. It is an 8-step charger that requires connection to mains electric, but also has a power supply mode, which allows the battery to be disconnected from a vehicle without losing important configurations. Users are able to understand if a battery can accept and retain a charge then, if required, the charger restores deeply discharged and stratified batteries as well as runs a desulphation function. Furthermore, it can be connected and safely left for months at a time, topping up the charge to its optimum when required. This gives camper and caravan owners peace of mind, knowing power will be available when they come to use it after a period of storage.
