BX-1 Pro 12V 3.8A


BENTON BX-1 is a smart, 5-step fully automatic switch mode battery charger and maintainer, designed for charging a variety of SLA (sealed lead acid) batteries, widely used in motorcycles, cars, boats, ATVs, trucks, Jet Skis and Snowmobiles. The batteries may be of various types i.e. WET/Flooded, GEL, AGM batteries capacity from 12V/1.2 Ah to 12V/120 Ah.

The BX-1 also charges batteries in cold conditions, recovers slightly sulfated batteries and rescues drained batteries. It provides trickle charge & maintenance charging to increase battery life and gives superb performance.

BENTON chargers are high frequency, multi-step switch mode compact and light weight units, which can be installed right on board the vehicle, enabling vehicles to be charged anywhere.

• They charge batteries rapidly.
• Since BENTON chargers use high frequency technique, they use less electricity to do same job as standard batteries do. This is a clear cost saver to users
• Less topping means less maintenance cost
• Due to temperature compensated voltage control charge feature, they prevent excessive heating, venting, water loss and gassing in the batteries.
• BENTON chargers prolong life of batteries
• BENTON chargers give the batteries an equalization charge which helps in maintaining batteries that are deeply discharged on a regular basis
• Processor controlled, fully interactive BENTON Chargers are smartly designed to provide perfect charging algorithm

1) Diagnosis & Recovery
Initializes the recovery process for drained batteries by pulse charging with small current in order to restoring the battery capacity.

2) Bulk
80% of energy is returned in this phase of charging. Here charger performs in two states: High Rate Charging and Medium Rate Charging.

3) Absorption
In this phase complete charging up to almost 100% is achieved. Charger switches to trickle charge phase after sensing that the battery is truly fully charged.

4) Trickle Charge
Battery is fully charged and ready to use. If the battery needs more current, the charger will switch to Maintenance Charge phase.

5) Maintenance Charge
As charger continuously monitors the terminal voltage in order to determine if a maintenance charging should be initiated. If the battery is loaded and/or terminal voltage falls below 12.8V, the charger starts a maintenance cycle until voltage reaches to 14.4V. The maintenance charging is discontinued.
