Blue Smart IP22 Charger - 3 output
The Blue Smart IP22 Charger is the wireless solution to monitor voltage and current, to change settings and to update the charger when new features become available.
With up to 94% efficiency, these chargers generate up to four times less heat when compared to the industry standard. And once the battery is fully charged, power consumption reduces to 0,5 Watt, some five to ten times better than the industry standard.
Adaptive 6-stage charge algorithm: test - bulk – absorption - recondition – float – storage
The Blue Smart Charger features a microprocessor controlled ‘adaptive’ battery management. The adaptive feature will automatically optimize the charging process relative to the way the battery is being used.
Storage Mode: less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use
The storage mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge during 24 hours. In the storage mode float voltage is reduced to 2,2V/cell (13,2V for a 12V battery) to minimize gassing and corrosion of the positive plates. Once a week the voltage is raised back to the absorption level to ‘equalize’ the battery. This feature prevents stratification of the electrolyte and sulfation, a major cause of early battery failure.
Also charges Li-ion (LiFePO₄) batteries
LiFePO₄ batteries are charged with a simple bulk – absorption – float algorithm.
NIGHT and LOW setting
When in NIGHT or LOW mode, the output current is reduced to max. 50% of the nominal output and the charger will be totally noiseless. The NIGHT mode automatically ends after 8 hours. The LOW mode can be ended manually.
Protected against overheating
Output current will reduce as temperature increases up to 50°C, but the Blue Smart Charger will not fail.
Eleven LEDs for status indication
Charge algorithm: TEST / BULK / ABSORPTION / RECONDITION / FLOAT / STORAGE / READY. MODE button to set: NORMAL (14,4V) / HIGH (14,7V) / RECONDITION / LI-ION.
Connect the battery with ease
The charger allows up to 3 seperate batteries to be connected, via screw terminals that cater for 13mm2 / AWG6 cable

What size charger do I need...?
Chargers are rated by their current output in Amps. The output Amps required depends on the capacity / storage (Amp Hour or Ah) rating of your battery(s). A single 80Ah battery will take around 9hours to charge from empty to near 100% full with a 10Amp rated charger. A good rule of thumb is to take the Amp hour rating of the battery, divide by the charger rating in Amps, and then add about 10% for the extra time to totally top up the battery. A boat with two 100Ah batteries would take around 15hours to fully charge from empty both batteries (although you should not let both batteries go flat in the first place!) with a 15Amp rated charger.
Check the status of your battery remotely with the The VictronConnect App:
The Blue Smart charger is equipped with built-in Bluetooth, so the status of the charger and the battery can be checked on a smartphone, tablet or laptop. All settings of the charger can be configured with the VictronConnect app.
You can display the status of your charger and battery and even control the functions of your charger using the VictronConnect app. On your screen the readout of voltage and current is available.
