DC12 VERSA T400 SOLAR GO-BOX: Powerpole, DC Input or Output; USB-QC3.0 with DVM; Automotive power Port (Cigarette Lighter); Solar panel direct input to built-in 150 watt MPPT solar charge controller; The Illuminated power switch is to remove power from the USB charger and DVM to prevent battery discharge during long term storage. This configuration can be ordered alone or with one of 3 sizes of Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries, 12, 15 or 20 Amp hours. The dual Powerpole connector is for power distribution or charging the battery from another source. The automotive power port can be used the same way. The input and output can be used simultaneously. There is a USB QC3.0 and Type C Power Delivery charging port for fast charging or multiple charging protocols and keep your phone or other USB devices charged and a DVM to monitor the battery condition. Also the automotive power port is for devices that use that type of connection such as a CPAP or 110 VAC Inverter. The case is considered water resistant. With batteries of 30 Ah or less, there is room for other items inside like cables or small inverter.
The solar input (yellow Powerpole connector) connects directly to a built-in 150 watt MPPT charge controller. All you need is a solar panel and a cable and you are ready to go.
Do not use automotive type chargers or maintainers for a LiFePO4 type battery. They will not charge the batteries properly.
The Bioenno Power charger installed is a 14.6VDC, matched to the LiFePO4 battery installed. The Bioenno batteries come with a PCM (Protection Circuit Module) ready for this particular type charger.
About the Battery
The Bioenno Power Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) Battery Model BLF-Series is a state of the art 12V battery. The BLF-Series is designed for more stationary applications and higher power consumption portable electronics requiring a higher capacity and greater power output battery while demanding a battery which can reliably provide excellent performance over an extended service life. The battery has an integrated PCM (protection circuit module) which provides complete internal cell balancing, complete integrated protection along with integrated charge circuitry and boasts no EMI/RFI (Electromagnetic Interference/Radio-Frequency Interference) and is absolutely quiet!
