Battery Charger Info

A battery charger is a standalone charging unit that plugs into a standard power outlet (or another source of AC power, like a generator). It’s used to replenish a battery bank that is low on charge.

Solar applications typically do not need a dedicated battery charging unit because most off-grid inverters come equipped with built-in battery charging capabilities.

We can think of a few scenarios where you might use a dedicated charger:

  • Recharge a battery bank not powered by solar (RV batteries, for example)
  • Maintain the health of batteries that have not yet been installed (batteries will degrade if they are stored or sit too long between charges)
  • Help recover batteries that have been fully drained due to improper charge parameters or lack of maintenance
