Victron Energy Automotive Blue Smart IP65 Charger 24V 13A 230V UK for Lead Acid, AGM and Lithium Ion Car Batteries
The Blue Smart IP65 Charger series is a professional battery charger that has built-in Bluetooth connectivity so you can monitor the status of the charger and the battery from the convenience of your devices such as smartphones, tablets or laptops.
All settings of the charger can be configured with the VictronConnect app.
The Blue Smart IP65 Charger can be used on devices in your workshop and on motor vehicles, such as cars, motorbikes, yachts, boats, tractors and camper-vans.
The charger comes with both crocodile clips and M8 eyelets, making it easy for you to connect to the battery.
This quality Victron Energy product also comes with 5-Years Warranty so you can absolutely count on the quality and reliability.
- Water, dust and chemical resistant
- Seven step smart charge algorithm
- Recovery of fully discharged "dead" batteries
- Automatic power supply function

Ultra high efficiency 'green' battery chargerWith up to 95% efficiency, these chargers generate up to four times less heat when compared to the industry standard. And once the battery is fully charged, power consumption reduces to 0.5 Watt, some five to ten times better than the industry standard.
- Durable, safe and silent
- Low thermal stress on the electronic components.
- Protection against ingress of dust, water and chemicals.
- Protection against overheating: the output current will reduce as temperature increases up to 60°C, but the charger will not fail.
- The chargers are totally silent: no cooling fan or any other moving parts.
ReconditioningA lead-acid battery that has been insufficiently charged or has been left discharged during days or weeks will deteriorate due to sulfation. If caught in time, sulfation can sometimes be partially reversed by charging the battery with low current up to a higher voltage.
Recovery function for fully discharged batteriesMost reverse polarity protected chargers will not recognize, and therefore not recharge a battery which has been discharged to zero or nearly zero Volts. The Blue Smart IP65Charger however will attempt to recharge a fully discharged battery with low current and resume normal charging once sufficient voltage has developed across the battery terminals.
The VictronConnect AppSetup, readout and configure your Blue Smart IP65 Charger via your smartphone.
You can display the status of your charger and battery and even control the functions of your charger using the VictronConnect app. On your screen the readout of voltage and current is default available.

Storage Mode: Less corrosion of the positive platesEven the lower float charge voltage that follows the absorption period will cause grid corrosion. It is therefore essential to reduce the charge voltage even further when the battery remains connected to the charger during more than 48 hours.
Temperature compensated chargingThe optimal charge voltage of a lead-acid battery varies inversely with temperature. The Blue Smart IP65 Charger measures ambient temperature during the test phase and compensates for temperature during the charge process. The temperature is measured again when the charger is in low current mode during float or storage. Special settings for a cold or hot environment are therefore not needed.
Li-ion battery modeThe Blue Smart IP65 Charger uses a specific charging algorithm for Li-ion (LiFePO₄) batteries, with automatic Li-ion under voltage protection reset.
