Balmar Announces Regulator Support for Lithium Batteries

Marysville, Washington – Balmar LLC, the leading manufacturer of onboard DC charging systems for cruising sail and power boats today announced enhanced support for the charging of lithium batteries.

Balmar’s MC-614, MC-624 and MC-612-DUAL smart regulators have all been equipped with an additional standard program specifically designed for LiFePO4 charging.  The new standard lithium program is available immediately from Balmar and its distribution partners.

“Balmar regulators have always been capable of charging lithium chemistries through our advanced programming mode, but now we have added a standard program to make it easier for the cruiser to setup a lithium charge profile”, explained Tim Bock, Balmar President.  “Simply select the “LFP” program at setup and you are ready to go.  Specific details of the new program can be found in the regulator manuals.
