Victron Phoenix Smart IP43 Charger
Bluetooth Smart enabled
Any Bluetooth enabled smart phone, tablet or other devices can be used to monitor, to change settings and to update the charger when new software features become available.
Phoenix Smart (1+1): two outputs to charge 2 battery banks
The second output, limited to approximately 3A and with slightly lower output voltage, is intended to top up a starter battery.
Phoenix Smart (3): three full current outputs to charge 3 battery banks
Each output can supply the full rated output current. But the total of the 3 outputs combined can never exceed the current rating of the charger.
Automatic voltage compensation
The charger compensates for voltage drop over the DC cabling by slightly increasing output voltage when the DC current increases. Please see the manual for details.
Adaptive 5-stage charge algorithum: bulk - absorption - recondition - float - storage
The Phoenix Smart Charger features our well-known 'adaptive' battery management system that can be preset to suit different types of batteries. The 'adaptive' feature will automatically optimise the charge process relative to the way the battery is being used.
The right amount of charge: variable absoprtion time
When only shallow discharges occur (a yacht connected to shore power for example) the absorption time is kept short in order to prevent overcharging of the battery. After a deep discharge the absorption time is automatically increased to make sure that the battery will be fully charged.
Preventing damage due to excessive gassing: the BatterySafe mode
If, in order to quickly charge a battery, a high charge current in combination with a high absoprtion voltage has been chosen, the charger will prevent damage due to excessive gassing by automatically limiting the rate of voltage increase once the gassing voltage has been reached.
Less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use: the Storage mode
The storage mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge during 24 hours. In the storage mode float voltage is reduced to 2.2V/cell (13.2V for a 12V battery) to minimise gassing and corrosion of the positive plates. Once a week the voltage is raised back to the absorption level to 'equalise' the battery. This feature prevents stratification of the electrolyte and sulphation, a major cause of early battery failure.
Also charges Li-ion (LiFePO4) batteries
Charger on-off control can be implemented by connecting a relay or open collector optocoupler output from a Li-ion BMS to the remote on-off port.
Alternatively full control of voltage and current can be acheived with Bluetooth.
Fully programmable charge algorithm
The charge algorithm can be programmed with the help of Bluetooth or the VE.Direct interface. Three preprogrammed algorithms can be selected with the mode button.
Remote on-off can be implemented with a switch, a relay or with an open collector optocoupler signal.
For a wired connection to a Colour Control panel, PC or other devices.
Can be programmed using the VE.Direct interface or a Bluetooth enabled device to trip on an alarm or other events.

So far appears to be a good thing.
Absolutely amazing product. Haven’t had a battery so compact powerful and suited perfectly to vehicle
Easyship Shipping Protection
Great price with quick delivery, very happy and will be a returning customer. 10/10
Ordered the Victron 500A SmartShunt. Not only did these guys give the best price but provided free delivery, which was very fast.
Highly recommend using this company, and I will be a returning customer for sure.
Works as expected from victron
Unreal battery and helpful service to work out which size would suit my application.
Customer service was excellent. Called and was given assistance on what I also needed for my setup and was given an unbeatable price!
Great charger works well , blue tooth connection range is not that great . Over all great unit .
Stoked with my set up of 2x 100Ah Fusion in series!
Thank you for the advice and talking me through installation! Legends.
Victron SmartShunt 500A
Excellent communication and service. Great battery. Well done!
Although I haven’t used them yet the seem a quality product
Installed second smart solar mpg for the portable panels and synced together. So now the roof and portable panels work more efficiently. Can monitor power coming in on Bluetooth phone.
Easy shopping and quick service and I will only shop online using PayPal so well done Marine Battery Co.
