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.

Video Transcript for Go Power Battery Chargers - Battery Charger - 34266168 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to take a look at the Go Power 12 volt 45 amps smart battery charger. Now, this smart battery charger will quickly charge your RV's battery using the state of the art converter switch mode technology. This battery charger's reliable, compact and lightweight, and it's designed specifically to extend the life of a deep cycle battery bank.Now, for a RV system, it features high continuous output to feed your 12 volt loads when it's plugged in to shore power. It is a compact lightweight design. Has switchable output modes, flow charging, rapid charging, and uses a built in four stage charger. Automatic equalization stage will periodically boost your charge battery.This is short circuit and reverse polarity protected.

Overload protection. If you notice on the back here, turn it around and you can see it uses a thermostatically controlled fan. And on the front, has the two 30 amp fuses for fuse protection.It's very easy to install, you just connect your battery cables on this end right here, plug in your 30 inch long AC cord and plug. Battery types this will work with is 12 volt AGM or flooded lead acid. Output voltage is 13.6 volts DC.

Output amperage is 45 amps. Input voltage range is 105 volts to 135 volts AC. Maximum power output is 600 watts. Weight on this is right at about five pounds. We want to give you a few dimensions on this.

The width on it, we're going to measure the mounting tab to mounting tab. So, that's going to be right at 7 and 3/4 inches wide. The length on it, and again we're going to measure furthest point to furthest point. So, if we do that, you're going to be looking right at 10 and 1/2 inches long, and the depth on it, going to be right at 3 and 1/2 inches deep, or tall.Does come with this nice owner's manual that'll describe how to hook this up and how to operate it. And just again to go over the ends, if you look at it right over here, we'll have the DC out terminals where your battery cutout cables will connect.

Right here, is the two 30 amp fuses, again. Right here, is your ground terminal. And then, on the other end is your thermostatically controlled fan and your 30 inch long AC cord and plug.But that should do it for the review on the Go Power 12 volt 45 amp smart battery charger.

Ask the Experts about this Go Power RV Converters

  • 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...

  • Troubleshooting Buzzing Sound from Power Converter in Camping Trailer
    That area where the fan is and buzzing sound you referenced is your power converter. That is what converts the 120v AC shore power into the 12v DC power for your lights, fans, etc., and charges/maintains your battery. To replace that converter with a compatible upgrade unit, you will need to get some more information off the unit. There should be a brand and model number as all are not created equal. If you want to replace the unit with a Go Power RV Converter and Smart Battery...
