Kepworth 36V 8A LiFePO4 Battery Charger Features and Specifications

In order to safely charge lithium batteries, Kepworth 36V 8A LiFePO4 Battery Charger comes with safety features that include:

- Over-Current Protection (8 Amps max. charging current regardless of the charging voltage),

- Over-Voltage Protection (43.8 Volts max. charging voltage, regardless of the charging current),

- Reverse Connection Protection (Red clamp is positive, a Black clamp is negative),

- Short Circuit Protection (connect the battery charger to the mains power after connecting it to the battery),

- Over-Heat Protection (charging temperature range is between -13°F (-25°C) and 104°F (+40°C) - personally, charging LiFePO4 batteries below 32°F (0°C) should be done only if allowed by the battery manufacturer).

Note: some sites claim that this battery charger is also intended for lead-acid batteries (AGM, Gel-Cell, Flooded) and that even comes with advanced features like deep-discharge recovery, desulphation, and similar. Wrong, this is a lithium battery only battery charger - a very simple battery charger, but it does its intended job well.
