Victron Blue Power IP65 Battery Chargers
The Victron Blue Power IP65 battery charger is ideally suited for use in caravan’s, motorhomes, boats, horseboxes vans and smaller boats, particularly if the charger is likely to be fitted in areas exposed to damp or dirt such as engine rooms or outside lockers etc.
The Victron IP65 Blue Power Charger sets new industry standards, with up to 95% efficiency or better. Once the battery is charged power consumption reduces to less than a watt!
Suitable for all battery types including Lithium Ion.
Available in 5A – 7A – 10A and 15A models

The Victron Blue Power IP67 battery charger is ideally suited for use in caravan’s, motorhomes, boats, horseboxes vans and smaller boats, particularly when the charger is to be fitted in areas exposed to water or dirt such as engine bays or even outside.
waterproof, shockproof and ignition protected.
Water, oil or dirt will not damage the Blue Power IP67 charger. The casing is made of cast aluminum and the electronics are moulded in resin.
The models with suffix (1+Si) feature a second current limited output which is always powered as long as 180 265 VAC is present on the input. This output can for example be used to prevent starting of a vehicle before unplugging the battery charger (start interrupt function)
Setting standards with 92% efficiency or better, the Victron Blue Power IP67 battery chargers waste three to four times less heat. Once the battery is fully charged, power consumption reduces to less than a Watt, some five to ten times better than the industry standard.
Adaptive 4-stage charge algorithm:
bulk – absorption – float – storage
The Blue Power Charger features a microprocessor controlled ‘adaptive’ battery management. The ‘adaptive’ feature will automatically optimise the charging process relative to the way the battery is being used.
Less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use: the Storage Mode
The storage mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge during 24 hours. In the storage mode float voltage is reduced to 2,2 V/cell (13,2 V for a 12 V battery) to minimise gassing and corrosion of the positive plates. Once a week the voltage is raised back to the absorption level to ‘equalize’ the battery. This feature prevents stratification of the electrolyte and sulphation, a major cause of early battery failure.
Protected against overheating:
Can be used in a hot environment such as a machine room. Output current will reduce as temperature increases up to 60°C, but the charger will not fail.
Two LEDs for status indication
Yellow LED: bulk charge (blinking fast), absorption (blinking slow), float (solid), storage (off) Green LED: power on.
Available in 7amp, 13amp, 17amp and 25amp models.
