Redarc has teamed up with DEFA to bring a co-branded battery charger range into the Australian and New Zealand market

Redarc says it is proud to announce the release of its new range of 240V AC Battery Chargers.
Redarc has teamed up with Norwegian innovator DEFA to bring a co-branded battery charger range called SmartCharge into the Australian and New Zealand market.
Redarc says they are ideal for the maintenance charging of batteries in a range of automotive applications.
The Redarc range of SmartChargers by DEFA are an AC to DC battery charger designed to automatically charge and maintain most 12v automotive starter and auxiliary batteries including Lithium (LiFeP04).
The SmartCharge range are the perfect battery chargers for people to keep in their home and garage or anywhere where you might need to charge a battery occasionally.
They are ideally suited for a wide range of applications such as cars, boats, motorbikes, scooters, lawnmowers and just about anything else with a small battery that isn’t used on a regular basis.
Available in four variants, four, six, eight and 10A they are perfect for charging car, bike and boat batteries; the eight and 10A variants can be used to charge bigger batteries used in Caravans, Campers and RVs.
The main advantage of the SmartCharge range is that they recognise the type of battery that you are connecting to and adjusts their charging process to suit the battery’s charge status, size and ambient temperature conditions. They also have a clear display which shows the status of charge and battery charge level.
Simple to use and operate, the SmartCharge range has only one button: On or Off, with a user-friendly display which comes with an inbuilt backlight to improve legibility. Award-winning for its design and user friendliness, it is also rated to IP65 meaning it can be used in damp and outdoor environments.
The SmartCharge range is shockproof, sparkproof and is protected against reverse polarity meaning that nothing can go wrong. The range also has a practical integrated cable storage solution which allows the user to fasten the clamps to the unit when they are not in use meaning you no longer have to store your cables in a pile.
“The addition of the SmartCharge range is a natural and logical fit to our existing power management product offerings,” Redarc Managing Director, Anthony Kittel, said.
“Fuelled by the enthusiasm Australian’s have for recreational vehicles such as 4WDs, boats and motorbikes, people from all walks of life would benefit from the flexibility and ease that the SmartCharge range offer.
“Redarc teamed up with DEFA as we share similar values between our organisations including a focus on continuous improvement, perpetual innovation and most importantly a drive to deliver great products of the highest quality.”
DEFA is an organisation operated out of Billingstad, Norway. Founded in 1946 they employ over 400 staff over three continents with products and services distributed in more than 30 countries worldwide. It provides a range of innovative products and services centred around charging, pre-heating and security of vehicles.
