Smart Battery Charger from Ring

Published:  04 February, 2015

This new Smart Battery Charger from Ring is unique, in that it is an ‘intelligent’ battery charger and battery analyser in one and a range of features to diagnose, recondition and service batteries. The latest Stop-Start batteries can also be charged with the product.

    It is easy to use, you plug into the mains, connect to the battery and it will do the rest – testing a battery and establishing what action is needed. Before charging, if needed, it will go into a desulphation mode and onto a recondition stage to recover deeply discharged batteries.

    Analyser functions include battery voltage, start power test, alternator check and battery cranking test. There is also a memory saver function so if the battery needs to be removed, the electrical and audio settings are kept safe.

The microprocessor control analyses and tests battery capacity without applying a load, providing fast, accurate results on batteries up to 1,700CCA. The unit will store up to 80 test results at any time so a large workshop can test a number of vehicles before downloading full reports. Test results can be printed there and then on the integrated printer.
