Friday, May 22, 2020
With batteries being a big issue at present, automotive aftercare and vehicle conversion specialist, Ring is offering a smart solution to the problem with its new range of Battery Chargers. The company has developed the RSC804, RSC806 and RSC808 Smart Battery Chargers and Maintainers which are able to easily restore power to motorcycles, cars, 4x4s, vans and trucks.
The RSC804 Smart Battery Charger is 6V and 12V compatible, has 2A to 4A charge rate, is start stop compatible, provides a 7-stage charging process, includes a large LCD display screen, offers cold weather charging mode, has quick connectors, comes with a one button operation and reverse polarity protection. It also has short-circuit protection and automatically adjusts to long-term maintenance mode when the battery is fully charged. With 90Ah battery charging and 140Ah maintenance mode, this product is ideal for motorcycles and cars.
The RSC806 Smart Battery Charger has all the same features but has a charge rate of up to 6A, a maximum battery capacity of 110Ah battery charging and 160Ah maintenance mode, making it ideal for motorbikes, cars, 4x4s and vans.
Meanwhile the RSC808 Smart Battery Charger is compatible to 12V and 24V. It has a charge rate of 8A for 12V and 4A for 24V and a maximum battery capacity of up to 150Ah for 12V and 70Ah for 24V. This product was developed for more robust use including with motorbikes, cars, 4x4s, vans and small trucks.
Marketing Manager for Ring, Henry Bisson, comments: “While vehicles have evolved and become more comfortable, constant consumption from the likes of heated seats, central locking and navigation systems has increased energy demands, placing additional strain on batteries. With five common battery types; Lead Acid, Gel, EFB, Calcium and AGM, not all react well to standard charge cycles, which is why we have developed a range of Battery Chargers that will meet the needs of our customers and their vehicles.”
As each Smart Charger in the range offers multiple different charge modes for safer and more comprehensive charge, the products can be used on flat batteries. The automatic function ensures that even though the Smart Charger can be left connected for a long time, it will not over charge and will not cause any safety concerns for the user.
The chargers are fully compatible with AGM and EFB batteries which have to be charged with a smart unit. The units also have anti-arching and reverse polarity safety features.
