The charges we use are 3 stage chargers from Australian owned companies. They are designed to charge lead-acid, gel and agm batteries from a 12 Volt DC vehicle battery. The charger will charge the auxiliary battery to the proper charge and with its voltage sensing feature via the ignition circuit ensuring the main battery is not depleted while the vehicle is not running. The charger is suited to all 12 volt negative earth systems in vehicles, boats, caravans and camper vans.
