The battery market is filled with different variations and options which offer their own unique features. Despite the wide array of batteries, the conventional 12V lead acid battery has stood the test of time and has remained the most popular choice. Due to its cheap price and reasonable functionality, most cars still use the lead acid battery. The lead acid battery requires maintenance and one important part of taking its care is to maintain its charge levels. One needs a good charger to achieve this goal. Enertec wants to help its vendors by providing an extensive overview of one such charger – the MXS 5.0. (Rated as the best all round consumer charger world wide)
The MXS 5.0 is a versatile charger that caters to small to medium size batteries. That is why it has separate charging programs for motorcycle and car batteries. The diversity of modes is not limited to battery size. There are different special modes such as the RECOND (for reviving deeply discharged batteries) and AGM (for charging AGM batteries) which serve unique purposes. To complement its functional features, the MXS 5.0 has various safety features as well. These include spark-free use, protection against reverse polarity and short circuit proofing. (NB - Recond function should never be used on AGM Batteries)
Before we conclude our discussion with describing the charging steps of the MXS 5.0, let us have a quick look at the charger’s technical specifications. The charger offers 3 different charging voltages which are 14.4V, 14.7V and 15.8V. During regular charging, the maximum charging current is 5A. It operates in 8 step automatic charging cycles that do not require any further input from the user. They are ideal for use with 12V lead acid batteries and have a mode that supports charging of AGM batteries as well. The MXS 5.0 is capable of charging batteries ranging from 1.2Ah to 110Ah in terms of capacity. This range increases to 160Ah when the charging is done for maintenance purposes. The charger has an IP65 rating which means that it is splash and dust resistant. Furthermore, it has a built-in temperature compensation mechanism which protects the battery from overheating. It also has a 5-year warranty.
