Lifepo4 Battery Chargers are a great way to get the most out of your Lifepo4 batteries. They can be used on boats, RVs, caravans and portable applications.
Smart Battery Lifepo4 Battery Chargers
Smart battery chargers are the most common charger used by boaters and caravan owners. They use a standard smart battery interface, which means that the internal electronics of each battery can communicate with your charger using this standard interface. This allows you to use one charger for all your 12V batteries as long as they are compatible.
The advantages of using a smart charger include the following:
- The ability to charge multiple types of batteries from one unit, i.e., Gel batteries, AGM or lead acid batteries etc.
- Automatic charging cycles based on different charging methods for different types of batteries (e.g., fast charge for Gel Batteries)
Other LiFePO4 and Lithium Ion batteries can also be charged with chargers.
You can also charge other LiFePO4 and Lithium Ion batteries with this charger. These include:
- Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries
- Lithium Ion Batteries
The internal electronics of each battery communicates with the chargers using a standard smart battery interface.

What are Lifepo4 batteries?
Lifepo4 batteries are lithium-iron phosphate batteries. They are a type of lithium-ion battery, also known as LiFePO4. The Lifepo4 technology is new and more efficient than standard lithium-ion batteries.
Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries are rechargeable lithium-ion batteries with high energy density, making them popular with electric vehicles. The technology is also used in portable electronics and power tools. This effectively means that the charger can communicate with the battery using a standard smart battery interface. The charger can communicate with the battery using a standard smart battery interface. They offer the same power capacity, but they are smaller and lighter. They can also be charged faster and hold their charge longer than other types of lithium-ion batteries.

DCS DC-DC 12v Lithium Battery Charger
- This charger is designed to charge a battery from the mains electricity supply.
- The charger has an LCD that shows the state of the battery and charging current.
- It also has a temperature sensor that will shut down the charger if it overheats.
The charger comes with a wide range of adapters for different types of batteries and is suitable for charging 12V lead acid batteries. 12v Lithium Battery Charger has built-in protection against overcharging, short circuits and reverse polarity.
Victron Blue Smart IP 22 Charger
The Smart IP22 charger is a 12/24V, 2.1Amp output smart battery charger suitable for all Lifepo4 batteries. It features heavy-duty BMS technology to ensure safe charging and monitoring of your battery during the charging process, while Victron’s unique charging algorithm ensures fast and efficient charging times.
The Smart IP22 is ideal for use on boats, RVs and caravans, where it can be conveniently mounted in a fixed position or wall-mounted using the optional D clamp bracket kit.
In-Vehicle 12v Lithium Battery Charger Charger
If you’re looking for a 12V Lifepo4 battery charger, it’s important to know that these batteries can be charged using one of five different methods:
- In-vehicle battery charger (12V)
- High-power alternator/alternator regulator
- Solar/wind power source (12 or 24VDC)
- Remotely operated lead-acid battery charger (12 or 24VDC)
- Low-current solar panel array (48 or 72VDC)
These chargers will charge a 12-volt Lifepo4 battery as well as other batteries.
This charger will charge you if you have a 12-volt Lifepo4 battery. If your battery is 24 volts, 48 volts or 72 volts, then again, this charger can also charge that size of the battery.
You may only need to worry about which type of charger you use if your battery system has more than one voltage level; in that case, you would need to purchase multiple chargers with different output ratings. For example, if your boat has both 24v and 12v batteries linked together in parallel (as shown), then a 36v automotive-type charger and two 12v plugs for each bank of batteries would be required.
Battery Chargers for Lithium-ion Batteries
Lithium-ion batteries are a popular choice for many applications because of their high energy density, long life and low weight. They are also known as Li-ion batteries.
The lithium-ion battery is a rechargeable battery that uses lithium ions to transport energy between the anode and cathode. It is different from other batteries because it uses a liquid organic solvent called an electrolyte instead of a solid one.
12v Lifepo4 Battery Chargers
12V battery chargers are designed to charge 12V lead-acid batteries. The 12v Lifepo4 can be used to charge 12V Lifepo4 batteries as well. This charger has a wide range of applications, ranging from boats and RVs to caravans and portable applications.
The key to charging a Lifepo4 battery with a 12V charger is to keep the voltage below 20 volts and the current at .5 amps or less. If you have a higher amperage than this, it’s best to use a different type of charger designed specifically for Lifepo4 batteries.
24v Battery Chargers
It’s important to note that 24v battery chargers are designed to charge 24v batteries. In other words, they’re not designed to charge 12v or any other voltage. If you’re looking for a charger that can handle multiple voltages, read our guide on multi-voltage battery chargers.
In addition to charging 24v Lifepo4 lithium-ion batteries, these chargers can also be used on RVs and caravans with other types of power systems, such as solar panels or wind turbines for regenerative braking systems (that generate electricity when you brake).
48v Battery Chargers
The 48v battery chargers are also available in various sizes, including:
- Small – for boats, RVs, caravans and portable applications.
- Medium – for boats with two 4D batteries or larger.
- Large – for large powerboats and yachts with four 6D or three 12D batteries.
The 48v battery chargers can be used as an AC charger when connected to shore power or a DC charger connected to solar panels or an inverter.
72v Battery Chargers
The 72v battery charger is designed to charge a 72v battery. The 72v charger can be used in cars, boats and RVs that operate at this voltage.
The charger may also be used for applications requiring a lower charging voltage (1-8V). This includes portable applications such as golf trolleys and scooters.
96v Battery Chargers
96v battery chargers are used for larger applications such as electric vehicles and high-capacity industrial equipment. They can charge many batteries simultaneously, meaning you don’t have to wait for your batteries to charge one at a time.
96v charger manufacturers also integrate reverse polarity protection into their chargers to prevent damage if the user connects their charger incorrectly.
In summary, the Lifepo4 Technology makes a great choice for those looking to invest in a battery that will last longer than conventional lead-acid alternatives. Lifepo4 batteries can be used for up to 10 years without being recharged! That’s pretty impressive if you think about it.
