This method provides for the fastest recovery and ideal conditioning, maximizing battery performance and extending battery life, according to the company. The PT-80 operates on 115/230 VAC input and produces 80 amps at 12 volts to power DC loads and maintain batteries. The charger is capable of “smart” charging up to 3 battery banks with a total battery capacity of 800 amp hours. The charger features an LED bar graph indicating charging current and status. To ensure full battery life, a selector switch adjusts the output voltage to adapt for Gel-Cell/Flooded Lead Acid/AGM battery types. The unit retails for $1,695. Visit www.newmarpower.com.
