New to the UK: Bosch BAT 645 and BAT 690 battery chargers

Published:  24 January, 2018

The new BAT 645 and 690 battery chargers from Bosch feature 45 or 90 amperes of continuous current output.  They are suitable for conventional lead-acid and gel batteries, as well as absorbent glass mat (AGM) and enhanced flooded battery (EFB) technologies and lithium-ion LiFEPP04 (LFP) batteries. When the tool identifies an ‘exhausted’ or empty battery, the battery chargers use a specific setting to maximise battery life. Using back-up mode, the devices ensure a stable power supply even when the starter battery has been removed. Meanwhile, buffer mode supports on-board power supply during control unit updates.
