Dual Pro Recreation Series (RS3) 6Ah x 3 bank Battery Charger

This charger is a great tool for competition robotics teams and hobbyists using Lead Acid batteries. Dual Pro chargers charge batteries to 100% specific gravity every charge, and are able to adjust current in the absorption and finish stages based on the battery's communication with the charger

There are three (3) unique charging banks included in this charger, meaning that you can charge three batteries at a time. Each bank has a capacity of 6 amps. When used at a robotics competition, this charger supplies a safe amperage level to quickly charge the 17 and 18 amp-hr batteries used on mobile robotics. Also, the charger is engineered for occasions which need a charging system that may require the battery to be left on the charger for days at a time.

We have installed SB-50A connectors on each of the three charging circuits, which make this charger ready for robot batteries.

Dual Pro Uses Deltavolt Intuitive Charging Technology

These chargers are on the cutting edge of technology. Dual Pro chargers can detect as low as 6 volts on a 36 volt system and 8 volts on a 48 volt system. Low voltage detection eliminates jump starting and service calls which save you time and money.

Dual Pro goes beyond what normal chargers do. Normally your average charger only charges your battery until it gets warm enough and your battery tells your charger that it's done. That is not the case for Dual Pro, they acknowledge this and also know that most batteries only get 80% of their full charge from ordinary chargers.

The DeltaVolt charge profile changes that. By giving you a full 100% charge, your batteries runtime will increasing by 10-15% per charge which will increase your overall battery life by 20-25%. Pay a little bit more now for your charger and save a lot more money with longer battery lives and having no more service calls.

Why choose Dual Pro?
  • It's the only 5 stage charger on the market
  • Recovers 100% DOD batteries to 100% charge
  • Charges to recommend specific gravity
  • LED charge status light with fault detection
  • Equipped with reverse polarity protection
  • Includes zero spark technology
  • Fully repairable charger

Watch your power bar March 12, 2014
Reviewer: Alex Davis from Torrance, CA United States  
This is a wonderful charger, but remember that most power bars are rated for 15 amps and this runs at 18 amps so it needs to be plugged directly to the socket.

Ok for quick charge, but not for battery life April 12, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Pennsylvania  
This charger is alright for getting your batteries up above 13 volts, however, expect the current draw of your robot to drain the battery in a matter of a match if you are running more than one CIM motor for your drive system. The best bet is to get a combination charger that does 2A, 4A, and 6A charge capabilities to extend your batter life. Otherwise, expect to replace your batteries every two years. The best way to get the most life out of your batteries is to charge them to full capacity at 2A, then at 4A, then at 6A. This will make your batteries last quite a while.
