Battery Charger Features:
- Multistage Charging: Fully automatic multistage battery charger with the ability to charge 3 separate battery banks.
- Separate Battery Banks: Isolated charging design where battery bank one is separate from battery bank two and three.
- Programmable: Battery bank 1 can be programmed with a different charge algorithm over banks 2 and 3.
- Current Control: User adjustable current output (e.g. Dial the 60amp unit back to run off a 1kVA generator).
- Smart Charging: The ePOWER 20A battery charger will regulate its output based on the loads connected to your battery banks.
- Wide AC Input Range: Operates on both 110V / 60Hz and 240V / 50Hz.
- LED Display: Easy to use “set and select” menu along with scrolling charger status.
- Silent Mode: Disables the cooling fan for total silent operation at night or whenever required. Activation reduces charge output by half and locks out fan for 12 hours.
- Temperature Sensor: Battery temperature sensor included with 3 meter cable.
- 2 Year Warranty from an Australian company renowned for customer support.
Multistage Charging Process
The Enerdrive ePOWER Battery Charger is a fully automatic, “set and forget” charger. It is designed to quickly and accurately recharge your batteries using algorithms that help maximise service life. Multistage smart charging technology enables the charger to be connected to your battery banks permanently.
As dictated by battery manufacturer’s recommendations, batteries require a multistage charge sequence for perfect, fast and accurate charging. Our ePOWER multistage smart 20A battery charger deliver four primary charge stages:-
Bulk or Boost Charge; The battery is charged at full rated output current of the charger until the battery reaches its final charging voltage, known as its absorption voltage. In this step, around 80% of the battery capacity is recovered as fast as possible.
Absorption Charge; With the charger voltage held steady the remaining 20% is replaced allowing the current to drop as the battery approaches its full charge.
Float; Finally, in the float stage the charger voltage is lowered and held at a constant and safe predetermined level. This prevents the battery from being overcharged while supporting any additional loads connected to the battery, such as DC lighting and refrigerators. This stage allows for the charger to be used as a DC power supply. Stage 4 – Maintenance; This stage is a regular timed “return to bulk” stage. After 7 days of constant operation in “float” the Enerdrive ePOWER Battery Charger will switch the charger from float to bulk to agitate the batteries electrolyte helping to provide an extended service life.
Bank 1 PRIORITY – Charge Where You Need it Most
The ePOWER 20A Battery Charger delivers a priority charge to Bank 1, or your main house battery bank which allows the charger to get this bank recharged the quickest, then transition the cycle to the lesser bank 2 & 3 batteries.
The priority function also allows you to have a battery chemistry different to the other two, such as an AGM battery for house and lead calcium for your start banks. In the event that all 3 banks are in need of a charge, an over-ride function helps recover all 3 banks quickly and evenly before switching back to prioritise on Bank 1.
It’s All About Lithium
The recent advances in high capacity Lithium battery technology have seen the need to develop a battery charger suited to their needs. With most traditional ‘smart’ chargers their suitability to Lithium batteries is limited. Lithium batteries require a constant current / constant voltage charge algorithm and are unique in that almost every amp-hour of charge delivered by the charger is accepted as one amp hour into the battery, hence the need to deliver a constant current as long as possible.
The Enerdrive ePOWER charger can be programmed for Lithium batteries. This setting delivers the full rated output of the charger constantly with the charger switching to power supply mode once the voltage peak is met (indicating a full battery bank). The graph below shows the ePOWER charger algorithm perfectly supporting Lithium battery requirements.
The Display Panel
The ePOWER Battery Charger display gives you all the information you need for the operation of your charger. At a glance, key information such as charger amps, battery voltage and charge state continually alternate on the screen.When in float / power supply mode, the load amps are displayed so you can see exactly what the charger is doing. The display also allows you to program all settings of the charger, as well as activate the silent mode.
Silence when you need it – By pressing the “SEL” button for 5 seconds, the ePOWER Charger enters the ‘Silent’ mode that prohibits the fan from working. This ensures totally silent and safe operation at night, ideal if the charger is located close to your sleeping quarters. Silent mode limits current output to no more than 50%, and is programmed to remain on for 12 hours before automatically returning to a normal ‘fan-on & full output’ setting.
Battery Temperature Sensor
Included standard with all ePOWER Battery Chargers.

We warrant that our goods will be free of faults during this time, are manufactured of an acceptable quality, have been accurately described in the selling advertisements and that spare parts and repair facilities will be available for a reasonable period after sale of this product. These products are made for personal/domestic use only and are not supplied, design or sold as suitable to fit for purpose for Commercial use. This Warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, damage from mis-use, water/moisture ingress, poor maintenance, neglect, natural disasters, war, terrorism or operation of the product in a manner outside of that specified in the user manual. This warranty will be considered void if the user modifies, tampers with or alters the unit in anyway. In the event of a defect and before returning the product for warranty, the buyer must contact Offroad Living first. We will run through a series of trouble shooting and fault finding checks to determine the fault or defect first. We may request photos/videos of the problem be sent to us electronically by email. If it cannot be resolved, we may request the product be returned to us for warranty inspection. If it is a warranty issue we will organise the return portage costs, if it is unclear we may ask that you organise the return of the item, and if it is found to be a warranty issue, we will refund the full postage cost. As part of our “Dead on Arrival” guarantee, should a product be found to be defective or faulty due to manufacturing defects during the first 30 days, we will promptly repair or replace the goods or supply a full refund of the purchase price. This choice is at the Buyer’s discretion during that first 30 days. After the first 30 days, the decision to repair, replace or provide a refund during the warranty period is at the sole discretion of Offroad Living. Any repair or replacement products or parts supplied by Offroad Living will be subject to the remaining time of the original 12 month Warranty period.
This Warranty does not exclude the consumer guarantees under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (CCA). Should we supply you with goods that fail to meet one or more of the consumer guarantees, you are entitled to a remedy – either repair, replacement or refund as required by law.
