converter charger

This converter charger converts AC shore power into DC power and charges your battery bank. The converter uses a high voltage output to provide the proper charging profile for lithium batteries. If your RV already has a stock converter charger, it will need to be removed to ensure this unit operates properly.


Designed for Lithium Batteries

Built for lithium batteries, this unit uses a higher output voltage than a typical converter charger, which provides a fast, complete charge. The charger also extends battery life since it utilizes the appropriate charging profile. Additionally, it's compatible with your battery's internal Battery Management System (BMS), which helps manage charging by monitoring the battery state and balancing cell voltage.


Parallel and Series Capability

If your battery bank requires a higher amperage or voltage to charge properly, you can connect identical converter chargers together to accommodate your setup. With parallel wiring, you can increase the charging current which is useful for high-capacity battery banks. Conversely, you can wire them in series, which increases the voltage so you can charge 24V, 36V, or 48V systems.


Safety Features

cooling fan

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 converter will shut down if there is excessive voltage. The built-in cooling fan also removes excess heat from the unit and only operates during high loads.


How It Installs

The converter mounts horizontally inside your RV in a dry location with ventilation. However, as long as the unit has sufficient ventilation, it can also be mounted vertically. The mounting hardware is not included.


terminals

The DC output terminals wire to the battery bank. The AC in cord plugs into a 120V 3-wire grounded outlet.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


Worked perfect with my four 100 AH Lithium batteries.... Stock Winnebago charger was a weak 30 amps @ 13.2 V.....this baby delivers 80 amps @ 14.4 V. which reduces generator runtime on cloudy days when the roof solar is not producing. Had to change the 15 amp RV panel breaker to 20 amps...no big deal...I'm happy with this purchase.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


Works as advertised. I can charge two 100 AH LiFePo-4 batteries with no trouble at all. Just make sure you use decent gauge wire because this charger is a beast! Smaller gauged wire will heat up due to the amount of current this thing delivers. It does constant current charging and then switches to constant voltage to top off the battery. Well worth the money!

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


The Progressive Dynamic 80 amp lithium charger is a great product. Charges the lithium batteries very fast. Its a simple well built charger converter. I've used it for about 8 months now. I used to own a 40 amp Progressive Dynamic regular battery charger converter on my previous rv. It worked great for the 12 or so years I owned it.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


This product was recommended by the lifepo4 battery manufacturer to fully charge the 3 batteries I purchased. Installation was pretty simple. Did not have to run larger wiring which was thankful. Simply swap out old converter charger with new one and ready to use. I would highly recommend this product.


Comments
I have had no problems whatsoever. Boondocked for 9 days in Grand Teton National Park last September. Used my generator to freshen up Battle Born lithium batteries and converter charger worked perfectly.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


I had my son-in-law who is an electrician install the converter. The converter is working good and the battery charge was really good. I believe that the water pump pressure was the best I had in a long time which indicates how well the battery is charged. The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that I think that a better manual could of come with the converter. When I connected the battery there was a green flashing light that I didn't know what it meant but after an internet search I found out what it meant. E-trailer was great to deal with, fast service and answered my questions quickly,

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


So far so good! I build my own power center modeled after the ones in RV for our enclosed trailer. Its been working great. I bought fuses at the auto parts store, and bought circuit breakers at home depot no problem. I did contact progressive dynamics because it seems that there are places you can buy these cheap but the serial number is not recognized by progressive dynamics meaning you have no warranty and probably cant return it to those places. But since etrailer was not listed on progressive dynamics website as a retailer, I contacted them, gave them my serial number, and they confirmed that etrialer is a preferred dealer, and my serial number is legit.... I contacted progressive dynamics also during installation, and they were very helpful. I was concerned the the wire coming out of the unit that hooks up to your 12 v batteries was 12AWG. I though that seemed too light a gauge, and should be at least 10AWG maybe 8AWG. Progressive dynamics, technical guy said that they have a special high temp insulation on those wires and they can indeed handle 40 AMPS. He recommended (which looks odd installed) but I ran 8AWG from my battery, and spliced it to the 12AWG wire on progressive dynamics unit. No Complaints so far, its been running great and charging the batteries. No regrets.

Just installed this unit, working as it’s supposed to... installed without smart charge for now, charges at a steady 13.2 with a new battery.. all interior 12 volt lighting is nice and bright.. I bought this brand because it’s American made.... I will update in a year or so

Good converter, good company. Use to charge a lifepo4 battery. Wish there was documentation from the company explaining how exactly the charger charges the batteries; graphs of the rate of charge, voltage, etc over time and over the total charge capacity. But that would be asking a lot. The product is excellent quality.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Converters


This converter was an awesome upgrade to our RV. Our stock converter just didn't have the oomph to get out lithium batteries full. The Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power RV Converter and Battery Charger - Lithium - 12V - 80 Amp has done the trick. It was a simple upgrade even though it was in a very tight area.

  • How To Choose the Correct Size Charge Converter for Trailer When Switching To Lithium Batteries
    I don't have a fool proof way of selecting the proper charge converter amperage rating because it is not based solely off the battery capacity but rather this combined with the load the trailer uses. Therefore, the best option would be to go with the same amperage the trailer came with, part # PD9130LV for 30 amps, part # PD9140ALV for 40 amps, part # PD9145ALV for 45 amps, part # PD9160ALV for 60 amps, or part # PD9180ALV for 80 amps.
