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 built-in Charge Wizard provides 2-stage charging. It starts with a constant 14.6V, then drops to 13.6V after the battery is fully charged. 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 and plug

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

I have had the charger installed for 6 months and it is working fine. I have 2 Lion energy batteries and 200W of solar. When I first received the charger I sat it up on a test bench and measured charging voltage and current. The voltage was a little lower than I expected, so I called Progressive Dynamics and spoke with their support. He was very helpful and explained how the charger works, answering all my concerns. He asked me about my planned configuration, specifically if I was going to have a solar charger connected. When I told him yes he informed me that I would need the optional Pendant in order to get the charger to work, with the solar controller. He explained that because solar charger would present a higher voltage, the charger would assume the battery was already charged and would not turn. I ordered the pendant and have been using it when I have solar charging, but need to boost the change from the charger. The etrailer didn’t(at the time) mention the need for the change wizard Pendant. I think it should be clear when ordering the use case where the pendant is required.

I installed this as I converted my 34ft Airstream to LiFePO4 battery technology (310AH). The charger is one of the newer 2 stage models (13.6V & 14.6V). The 14.6V mode is used when bulk charging and also every 21 days when the internal charge wizard performs a top-end charge to ensure that the battery is at its peak. I have verified that the charger does output just slight more than the 60Amp rating (about 62Amps). At the 60Amp output, the max 8hr bulk charge limit is more than adequate to fully charge the 310AH pack. So far no issues and no concerns.




by:

Tech support was great to deal with. Updating to lithium battery. Gave my current model # was given the current model # for lithium. Instructions were easy to understand. Took about 30 minutes as converter was in a tight space.




by:

Hi Noah, thank you for checking in on my order and all is well so far. I just installed the converter charger for my lithium batteries and it's doing a great job. Thank you for your prompt delivery All is well for now thanks again.




by:

Excellent! I've been using two PD 9270 units in my two Vanagons for over 15 years. So when I switched to Lithium Batteries in one of my Vans, I chose the PD 9160 ALV. And again, flawless operation that didn't require me to go to some menu to change settings. I've monitored the charging process using a popular shunt based blue tooth battery monitor and was able to confirm a perfect operation of the charging profile. As an extra bonus, this unit was exactly the same physical size as the PD 9270 it replaced. There were no modifications needed to do the swap.
I have been watching people online complaining about other chargers while getting lost with the menu changes required.
I couldn't be happier.




by:

Upgraded my campers stock converter to this unit when I upgraded to lithium batteries. It has worked great to keep them charged and charges them up quick.




by:

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!




by:

Worry free charging for LiFePO4 batteries because it automatically drops to 13.6 when fully charged. No problems so far and the lithium battery charges twice as fast as the AGM I had before.




by:

My old converter was struggling to charge my lithium ion battery so I found this and took a shot. It seemed like my old converter, made for lead acid batteries, could charge the battery, but soooo slow and it seemed like the batteries would drain down to 30-50% every time we came to a travel day. I installed this and boom, instant 14+ volts going to the batteries and charged them to 100% so fast. Then once charged it dropped back to 13.6 volts in rest mode. The converter is a lot quieter than my prior one and the fan hardly ever kicks on. So happy I bought this. Shipping was faster than something else I order the same day on [online retailer]! etrailer has got their shipping department on lock down!!




by:

My 60a charger converter came promptly and is what was ordered. I haven't installed yet but trust it will work fine. I have purchased from etrailer before with similar great experience.




by:

Has worked very well with my 200A lithium batteries. It is very quiet and hasn’t produced much heat.




by:

Have always had good results dealing with etrailer.




by:

Working very well a year after I installed in my trailer :)




by:

Ordered by phone on the 4th and received the converter on the 6th. Have not installed it so no product review at this time.
The PD9160ALV converter was recommended by Battleborn to replace my OEM WFCO WF-9855 55A converter and charge two of their 100AH Lithium batteries in parallel. Great folks at etrailer customer support/sales.




by:

PD9160ALV was received quickly and works exactly as described. It was easy to swap out with the old charger and now quickly and correctly charges my lithium batteries.




by:

We have 4 Battle Born LiFePO4 batteries in our RV. The WFCO supposedly-lithium-compatible converter-charger did not put out enough voltage to fully charge the batteries and was not good at all at managing bulk/float. The PD PD9160ALV (as recommended by Battle Born) is doing an excellent job of maintaining our battery bank.




by:

Initially thought it had a problem but turned out to be my multimeter as far as the converter to early to tell but I expect it will be fine. I am VERY IMPRESSED with the customer support of etrailer and would highly recommend them.




by:

Fast Shipping. Exactly as ordered. Works well so far.




by:

Well made converter with good performance and excellent customer service. I'm using my 9160ALV to charge my new SOK 206 amp hour lithium battery. It is working well, thanks.




by:

Needed a new converter for my lithium batteries on my RV. Was going to order from [online store], but not sure what's best. In researching I stumbled across etrailer, who I had heard of through YouTube, and the same thing was $xx cheaper. It arrived in 2 days. I didn't even have the old one out yet. GREAT service and great product. I will definitely be a return customer.




by:

The service was great, the delivery was fast and the product was as expected.
I recommend E-trailer 100%




by:

I just switched my RV to lithium batteries and needed a new charger. My Progressive charge I purchased from etrailer for my lead acid batteries have been working great so I want to stay with Progressive. Etrailer has the best prices and very fast shipping. I have bought many thing from them and they have been great dealing with.




by:

Working my way to more battery capability. To that end, purchasing this lithium converter enhanced my total recovery time when recharging my battleborn batteries. Etrailer is awesome with all the details and support! Importantly, this converter was the newest version… no offloading old equipment with etrailer… just the best and most up-to-date from this company!

I'm a full timer and I live in my Arctic Fox fifth wheel off grid pretty much all of the time. Nearly all of my power is provided by my solar, but I purchased this converter to quickly charge my 300ah lithium battery when there's not enough sun. However, this has probably not happened 6 times in the last year.

I kept my original converter and installed this converter within 3 feet of the battery. I ran overly large gauge welding cable from the converter to the battery. When needed I plug it into my generator, thus I only use this to charge my battery on cloudy days. I don't use it on shore power.

Per battery monitor, the current to the battery is always very close to the 60amp rating (55-59 amps). It charges the lithium to a perfect 14.6 volts very quickly. I've no complaints about this device, though I've used it very little (~10 hours).

I would buy this again in a heartbeat.

The only improvement I can think of is... I would like to be able to configure it to stop charging a little earlier, because I think it would be a little less stress on the battery if it stopped at 14.4 volts verses 14.6. Everything I've read suggests that the lithium batteries last longer if treated gently (low and high ends). I have ample capacity and can afford to be gentle with it. A Lifeblue battery tech support guy agreed with me on this. But this is really nit picking!

Was delivered fast and works just like advertised.
