go power smart battery charger

The smart converter charger converts AC shore power into DC power and uses a multistage charging system to charge your battery bank. If your RV already has a stock converter charger, it will need to be removed to ensure this unit operates properly.


Automatic Multistage Charging System

Using a multistage charging system, the converter charger automatically switches voltages while the battery bank charges. This accelerates the charge, but also helps extend battery life by adjusting the voltage during the different modes. This charger is compatible with flooded lead acid and AGM batteries only. Do not use gel cell batteries as they can be damaged by the higher voltages of this charger.


Charging Modes

  1. Bulk: This mode charges at the full rated load for a quicker recharge time. As the name suggests, this is where the bulk of the charging happens. It typically charges the battery to at least 80% capacity.
  2. Absorption: This mode provides controlled voltage to ensure a full charge. Once the battery reaches between 80% to 90% capacity, the absorption state will kick in and start charging at a regulated voltage.
  3. Float: Once the battery reaches full charge, this mode maintains a lower voltage to compensate for self-discharge. This reduces battery stress and minimizes gassing and water loss.
  4. Equalization: On flooded batteries, this mode activates to prevent stratification and sulfate buildup during extended float cycles. These two issues can damage a battery by causing the accumulation of acid at the bottom of the battery and hardened sulfate crystals on the battery plates. This mode is especially helpful when your battery is going unused during storage.

Safety Features

The system includes a number of safety features. It has a reverse polarity protection that will protect the converter if the battery is hooked up incorrectly. It has short circuit protection as well, which limits the current and reduces the output until the short has been fixed. Additionally, the over current protection includes cycle-by-cycle peak limiting and rated current limiting. The built-in cooling fan also removes excess heat from the unit. The fan speed is proportional to the internal temperature on the converter, so the fan will turn on and off slowly to minimize noise.


How It Installs

The smart converter charger mounts inside your RV in a dry location with ventilation. The DC output terminals wire to the battery bank. The AC in cord plugs into a 120V 3-wire grounded source.

So far so good. Replaced an older 55 amp converter that stopped functioning. This will be hooked to shore power permanently and power all DC components, as well as charge the battery bank in a shower trailer. Hopefully it lasts!

  • Replacement for 50 Amp Newmark RV Power Converter
    The Go Power RV Converter and Smart Battery Charger part # 34266168 will work well to replace a 50 Amp Newmark RV Power Converter. It's unlikely the 5 amp difference will have an impact on the system. The correct size converter is chosen based on load and the best method for selecting this is to simply choose one with either the same rating as before or as close as you can get which in this case is 45 amps.

  • Can 45 Amp Go Power Converter/Charger be Used to Replace 40 Amp Converter/Charger on Trailer
    If your battery has a max current of 45 amps then yes, the Go Power Smart Battery Converter Charger # 34266168 can be used for your application. My contact at Go Power said that this charger wouldn't be compatible with their batteries as they are rated for a max of 30 amps. Your 30 amp supply is actually different than your battery. What you want to do is find out the amp hours of your battery and choose something that is rated for about 30% of your amp hours. For example, if your battery...

  • Can I Power A MaxxAir Fan And Some LEDs With This Converter?
    This converter you're looking at # 34266168 is rated for 600 watts and 45 amps. If you were to run something like this # MA00-04500K and a dozen or more LED lights, you won't go over the converters power rating.

  • Troubleshooting Sudden Power Loss
    The Go Power RV Converter and Smart Battery Charger - 12V - 45 Amp # 34266168 would either be wired directly to your battery or to an ac/dc converter panel so it wouldn't affect the outlets in your camper. I recommend checking panel in your camper for blown fuses or breakers from the shore power. The # 34266168 uses shore power to charge your battery so if the battery isn't bad and didn't charge using the converter then the shore power is the issue. If you find the issue isn't the fuses/breakers...
