Motorhome Battery Charger
Finding the right motorhome battery charger for you
When you’re enjoying a holiday in your camper or motorhome, the last thing you want is to have a problem with your battery. So if you want to avoid a costly trip to a garage we recommend carrying a motorhome battery charger with you at all times.
There are many different options available, including chargers that take their energy from DC sources and distribute it to different battery banks, depending on their needs.
- The CTEK D250SA, for example, automatically selects the best connected DC energy source from two available connections – such as the alternator or a solar panel – and switches between them for maximum efficiency.
Whether the sun’s beating down or even if it’s snowing, this motorhome battery charger always delivers the optimum charge whatever the ambient temperature. And because it’s splash and dust proof, you can use it in any weather conditions.
The CTEK D250S DUAL is ideal for vehicles that don’t have access to power grid supplies and charging starts 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 motorhomes. It’s an 8-step charger that needs a connection to mains electric, but it also has a power supply mode so the battery can be disconnected from the vehicle without losing important onboard electronic configurations.
Its easy to read display tells you if your battery can accept and retain a charge. It’ll also restore deeply discharged and stratified batteries, and it can also run a desulphation function. It can be safely connected and left for months at a time, topping up the charge to its optimum when needed. This gives camper and caravan owners the peace of mind knowing that power will be available the moment their vehicle comes out after a long period of storage.
