Lincad produces a range of chargers for its own range of LIPS batteries and, with the most recent additions to the product portfolio, the Caravel Mk2 and Power Scavenger, is now able to charge non-Lincad batteries of any electrochemistry.
Caravel Mk2 Charger
The Caravel Mk2 Charger is Lincad’s enhanced, cutting edge, multi-chemistry charger that brings together the latest developments in battery charging technology and design. Offering multi-chemistry charging of batteries from any original equipment manufacturer, it is now possible to bring an entire battery fleet under the management umbrella of a single charging unit. Designed with functionality to allow the discharge of any lithium-ion battery to 30% state of charge in line with the new IATA regulations, it becomes the default battery charger for anyone in the lithium-ion battery supply chain. With twin USB ports, it will also charge USB enabled devices such as smartphones and tablets.
The Power Scavenger is Lincad’s all-purpose solution to mobile power management in any situation where reliability, light weight and ease of use are critical. It charges different battery types of any electrochemistry from any DC input such as solar panels, a vehicle or other batteries.
