    I’m looking at buying one of your lead crystal batteries soon. What “battery type” setting on my DC to DC charger should I use?

      Sorry for the delay in reply David. This would depend on the DC/DC unit you bought or are planning to buy, for most available DC/DC we would recommend the AGM setting depending on where it would be used. Far North Queensland will give great results with the AGM setting, South Australia in the winter would need a bit higher voltage so the Li Ion or flooded setting would be better. This is all related to the temperature and the amount of current the DC/DC can output. Redarc and CTEK now have chargers in the market with dedicated Lead Crystal battery profiles pre loaded

    Will my ctek ds250s dc to dc charger work with these lead crystal batteries?

    1. marketingau says:

      Hi Phil, the ds250s is a 25amp dc to dc I understand. With a unit of that size you could charge up to an 80amp CNFJ Lead Crystal battery or 120amp EVFJ Lead Crystal. If you choose a battery bigger than these you’ll need to upgrade your dcd to dc charger.
