BattCom

Posted on Written by Chris Landry

Charles Marine & Industrial Group is offering a 12-volt waterproof battery combiner with 280-amp capacity.

It’s called BattCom. “BattCom eliminates the need for battery isolators and battery switches and provides a heavier current capacity than any other battery combiner on the market,” says Charles Marine general manager Lyle St. Romain.

Designed for boats from 15 to 29 feet, the microprocessor-controlled BattCom automatically detects charging power from an alternator or battery charger and combines the main and reserve batteries for charging. Upon stopping the engine or removing the battery charger, BattCom will disconnect, allowing both batteries to provide power independently of each other. BattCom is encased in a high-quality plastic-sealed case (4 inches x 3 inches x 2.5 inches) with stainless steel connection terminals and insulated rubber caps for safe operation.

The unit can be mounted in a convenient location close to the batteries and is easy to install with a two-wire connection. It’s also waterproof, maintenance-free and designed to last the life of a boat. List price is $128.34. An optional dashboard remote indicator is available.
