Enerdrive 40+ dcdc charger
« on: Sun 5 May 08:38 2019 »
Anyone running one or any on the Enerdrive products?

Had not heard of them until about 3 weeks ago. Aussie made in Brisbane.
Looking at redoing my 12volt setup for fridge ad batteries and this one seems to tick the boxes.

Just yet to meet someone who has used their products and find how the preform long term

Looking at the same charger. Have only heard goods reports about these. Do some research on their lithium batteries if you are considering. They are located in Tingalpa

They dont deal direct with public but 2 places in Capalaba sell their product. There is factory pricing currently buying this charger and their LiPo at same time currently

Their Lithum is 2 different types.
The green or blue top model has in built BMS that can see via bluetooth. These batteries can not be set in parallel and have long service life. Need to know what your daily consumption is and charge that can feed back each day.
Get it wrong and need to increase bank then first battery cant be used in new bank.

Their white top you can parallel bit need to buy separate BMS. These ones if plan to increase storage in future is possible and still achieve good cycle life.

Come July will get a 40+ and fit it up to 1 agm that currently using.
Can feed it with up 600watts of solar at 50volts iirc and when engine running can pull up over 50amps if batteries need it and you got right size cable fitted.

It is cheaper than the 4 main players of dcdc charger you buy at chain stores and can use cheaper household panels to power it. Looking at $500+ saving on new install cost.

The charger does need cool and dry spot to be installed.

Big change to dual battery set up in my HJ60 of over 18years ago with 3way switch and wet cell deep cycle battery all shoved in the engine bay

This and the Enerdrive btec 200ah Li will be new set up.once battery arrives.
Bit of a step from the agm of 4 yrs ago.

The quicker rate of recharging compared to agm, 1/3 the weight and half the space compared to current 2 agm 110amp batteries.
Same usable amount of amps as 360amps of agm

Hoping for 6 years service life from this setup.
Time will tell.
Know after November if was worth heading in this direction in charger and battery charger

Old thread.

Burger, worth getting one of these chargers especially if connect to one of their Green cased Lipo batteries..

Punches in 45amp on dcdc on Highway and with 330watts of 45volt house hold panels will pour 25amps if required.
As it only has bulk charge to 95% then float charges
The recharge time is heaps quicker.

Overnight draw is about 15amps so by 8am on 100% and that is if not started the engine ;)

This is first trip with this new setup as finished in day before left.
So only early days yet.

Still only 9 days in out of 21days.

If any interest can do a report on first trip.

Otherwise caught redfin, trout, silver perch and fallow deer and rabbits. Nsw and state land hunting plus fishing is great.

Be in Victoria in day or 2 for more of the same.

These are the reason for the new set up and battery % charge is now the last thing need worry about
