The REDARC BCDC1240D is a 12V 40A In-vehicle DC to DC battery charger suitable for battery types including lithium, AGM, GEL, standard lead acid and calcium.
Featuring a Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) solar regulator, the BCDC1240D will charge from both solar and the alternator simultaneously. With built-in ‘Green Power Priority’ it will select solar charging first, meaning less load on the alternator.
Suitable for 12 or 24-volt vehicle systems, the unit will also work with either standard or variable/smart alternators.
The BCDC1240D also comes with patented charging profiles, including a lithium charging profile. The ‘Dual’ input range will continue to charge all other types of batteries including AGM, GEL, standard lead acid and calcium.
As a guide, the BCDC1240D is used for battery bank sizes over 200AH. For smaller batteries of 75-200AH REDARC recommends the BCDC1225D.
Proven and Tested
The award-winning technology in the BCDC has been independently verified and tested to ensure battery life is maximised, charging your battery to a proven 100%.*
*large capacity battery banks may require a few cycles to fully charge.
The BCDC1240D has been tested in New Zealand’s unique conditions, the In-vehicle battery charger will work in the diverse weather our islands have to offer – water, dust and vibration are no match for this charger.
If you’re heading out into the wild and want to get there and back again safely – you can trust REDARC.
