Battery Charger with 13.38V Output

31 August 2021

We were recently contacted by a customer looking for a DC 12V charger with a variable voltage of 10-15A.

The charger was to provide the float voltage to six 2V spare cells for a battery bank. If one cell was removed, the voltage needed to be lowered by 2.23V.  

For this application we suggested the customer use the MEAN WELL PB-300P-12 battery charger. This charger can be adjusted to give a 13.38V flat charge output.

This is something the customer could set himself with a small screwdriver using the potentiometer (SVR1) near the fan (see the below diagram).
