Redarc In-Vehicle 40A DC Battery Charger

The REDARC BCDC1240D under-bonnet Battery Charger is a 12V 40A DC to DC battery charger, capable of high performance in engine bay installations, potted to survive and thrive against heat, water and dust. 
Featuring a Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) solar regulator, the BCDC1240D Classic will charge from both solar and the alternator simultaneously. With built-in 'Green Power Priority' it will select solar charging first, meaning less load on the alternator.

Suitable for 12 or 24-volt vehicle systems, the unit will also work with either standard or variable/smart alternators.

The BCDC1240D also comes with patented charging profiles, including a lithium charging profile perfect for pairing with a REDARC Lithium Battery. The 'Dual' input range will continue to charge all other types of batteries including AGM, GEL, standard lead acid and calcium.
