Home' Australian Automotive Aftermarket Magazine : Australian Auto Aftermarket E-zine December Contents Jaylec Intelligent Battery Chargers literally
think for themselves, with technology that
ensures a quality 100 percent charge while
breaking down harmful sulphate deposits that
can destroy a battery's charging capacity.
The new 12V Jaylec chargers are available in
three models offering different levels of charging
power to suit different applications and budgets.
These include the BC9000 (12V four amp),
BC9010 (12V 10 amp) and BC9020 (20 amp)
model which can charge 6V, 12V and 24V
Jaylec intelligent battery chargers are
suitable for use with all lead acid battery types
including flooded, AGM, gel and calcium.
The advanced four-stage charging system
consists of pre-charge, bulk and de-sulphation,
absorption and float and maintain.
Pre-charge determines the overall health and
type of battery and automatically adjusts to the
most effective charge mode.
Bulk and de-sulphation charges the battery
at the maximum available rate (constant current)
until approximately 80 percent of the charge is
It also breaks down harmful sulphate
deposits during this process.
Absorption charges the battery to 100
percent capacity using constant voltage and a
decreasing rate of current.
Float and maintain ensures that after a
battery has reached 100 percent capacity, the
voltage is reduced to a lower level (float charge)
to minimise gassing and prolong battery life.
The charger can also be left connected
indefinitely without harming the battery.
The entry-level BC9000 charger is an ideal
maintenance charger for all 12V battery sizes
and types up to 80Ah (500CCA).
Fully automatic with adjustable charge
current, it comes complete with a permanent
mount harness and 12V in-car power plug
The mid-range BC9010 is suitable for
charging all 12V batteries up to 200Ah
It is also fully automatic, with adjustable
voltage and current settings plus automatic
equalisation and reconditioning.
The top-of-the-range BC9020 can charge
batteries up to 400Ah (2500CCA) capacity and
is suitable for use with 6V, 12V or 24V batteries.
It is also loaded with features including
adjustable voltage and current settings,
automatic equalisation and reconditioning,
multi-function LED display and an alternator
Cooldrive Distribution Marketing Manager,
Matt Russell, said the damage caused to
automotive batteries by the build-up of lead
sulphate required Jaylec to use an intelligent
approach to the science of battery charging.
"When a lead acid battery is discharging
during service, lead sulphate builds up on the
electrodes as part of the chemical process that
occurs between the lead electrons and the
sulphuric acid in these types of batteries," he
"Great care has to be taken when recharging
them, because if the charge rate is not exactly
right it can increase the amount of lead sulphate
deposits building up on the electrodes.
"When this happens, it reduces the battery's
recharging capacity and therefore its
performance and service life.
"That's why Jaylec's new range of intelligent
chargers uses a four-stage recharging process
that automatically senses the amount of charge
in the battery and accurately adjusts the charge
"It certainly takes the worry out of battery
charging and your batteries will perform better
and last longer."
