Ring launches SmartCharge Pro battery charger

Ring Automotive has launched the SmartCharge Pro, a versatile, 30A battery charger suitable for intensive use across mixed vehicle fleets.

The 2.6 kilogram, 12/24V-output compatible power supply rapidly recharges with variable rates of 5, 10, 20 and 30 amps, allowing technicians to charge batteries quickly.

It features a large LCD screen and diagnostic modes to check for potential battery and alternator problems before charging.

The SmartCharge Pro is suitable for application across commercial garages and workshops, and for intensive use on cars, light commercial vehicles and heavy goods vehicles.

Ring’s SmartCharge Pro has two charging process modes, with its nine-stage process compatible with lead acid, gel, calcium, AGM, EFB and an eight-stage process for Lithium-ion batteries.

The SmartCharge Pro is available now as a 30A unit, with 50A, 60A, 100A and 120A set to be released over the coming year.

Henry Bisson, marketing director at Ring, said: “SmartCharge Pro combines Ring’s familiar robust innovation with useful diagnostic modes to identify any faults with the alternator and starting system before running a charge cycle.

“Importantly for mechanics and technicians, it is not just a battery charger, but will also supply 30A continuous charge for battery support functions such diagnostic or data upload work. Two products for the price of one.”

Ring Automotive will be exhibiting at this year’s Auto Trade EXPO, which takes place from October 22-23 at Citywest Exhibition Centre in Dublin.
