Purkeys has developed the 100 amp Pack Accelerated Charger (PAC) to quickly and safely charge batteries in nearly half the time of other chargers.
Purkeys says the PAC is an excellent solution to help customers keep their batteries at a good state of charge during cold winter months. It is well known that cold weather makes it harder to crank a motor. This, added to the extra loads from heaters and other equipment, can strain heavy-duty vehicle batteries, the company says.
The 100 amp continuous charger is compatible with AGM and flooded cell batteries. Purkeys says it also shows how long it will take batteries to charge, based on voltage and number of batteries being charged.
Additionally, the PAC has the ability to charge up to eight batteries simultaneously without removing them from the vehicle. Because the PAC is a 100 amp continuous charger, it decreases recharge time, which can be especially nice during winter.
