Frequently Asked Questions about this product:
    1. Question: What is a KT 7 Stage Smart Battery Charger Used For?
      Answer: The KT 7 Stage Smart Battery Chargers are used for charging a flat battery. See above specifications as to which types of battery each charger is suitable for charging.
    2. Question: What is so ‘Smart’ about the KT 7 Stage Smart Battery Charger?
      Answer: Traditional and commonly used battery chargers that most of us are familiar with and may own, are what we call (linear) constant voltage chargers.
      In simple terms what this means is as the battery is charging the voltage slowly rises, and as the voltage rises the current (amps) that the charger is putting into the battery starts to drop off, and keeps falling until the battery voltage is up around 14 volts or so, at this point the amps going in has now dropped off to almost nothing and the battery is deemed to be ‘charged’, however, they are NOT really fully charged, and this process can take a very long time because of the constantly reducing current input. On the other hand these chargers when left connected to a battery for too long can, and often do, overcharge and damage the battery. The KT 7 Stage Smart Battery Chargers are very different and unique, providing full charge to a battery in 7 stages, very quickly, easily and safely. The 7 stage charging function starts with a ‘boost stage’. In this stage, the charger puts in as much current as the charger is capable of, for as long as it possibly can. In this stage, the charger operates as a constant charger so for example, if it is a 8Amp charger, it will produce a consistent 8Amps until the battery reaches a voltage set point that is normally around 14.4-14.7V (this depends on the type of battery being charged). At this point, the battery should be approximately 75-85% charged.Stage 2 is the adsorption stage and the charger now turns into a constant voltage charger. It now holds the voltage at a set point, for example 14.4V. The charger must now back off the current to hold the voltage at 14.4V as the battery adsorbs the last amps for the required current that it requires to be ‘fully charged’.

      Over time, the amount of current flowing to keep the battery at the set point is so small that the chargers smart processor circuit decides that the battery is fully charged, as the battery can not accept any more current. This is when the charger moves into it’s next stage, switching to Float or Maintenance mode where it backs off even further so the battery voltage drops to around 13.5 – 13.8V and holds it there by varying the current again. The lower voltage is below the electrolytes gassing point and can be left on charge like this indefinitely and if power is being drawn from the battery, the charger ramps up the current out-put to match the draw.

In conclusion, the real advantages of the The KT 7 Stage Smart Battery Chargers provide a more efficient, fuller, safer charge ultimately leading to a longer battery life, and more useable capacity from the battery. There is less electrolyte loss in the case of wet flooded batteries and/or little chance of overcharging and damaging wet batteries.
