GCBX-2 12/24V Benton Battery Charger

BENTON BX-2Ā is a smart, 7-step fully automatic switch mode battery charger and maintainer, designed for charging a variety of 12V and 24V lead-acid rechargeable batteries, widely used in motorcycle, cars, boats, ATVs, trucks, golf carts, tractors, RVs and Snowmobiles. The batteries may be of various types i.e. WET/Flooded, GEL, AGM, MF, VRLA batteries capacity from 12V/14Ah to 12V/230Ah and 24V/14Ah to 24V/120Ah. TheĀ BX-2Ā also charges batteries in cold conditions, recovers slightly sulfated batteries and rescues drained battery. It provides trickle charge and maintenance charging which increase battery life and gives superb performance.
A versatileĀ BX-2Ā smart battery charger comes with Boost charges, Maintenance, Power Supply and memory function.


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.

Standby feature
When battery remains connected with vehicleā€™s wiring system, during the trickle mode, circuits continuously monitor the current drawn by the battery.

BENTONĀ® BX-2 is fully interactive charger which adjusts itself to changing current and voltage requirement to charge and maintain the battery.

5) Maintenance ChargeĀ 
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 (for 12V battery) or 25.6V (for 24V battery), the charger starts a maintenance cycle until voltage reaches to 14.4V (for 12V battery) or 28.8V (for 24V battery). The maintenance charging is discontinued.

6) Supply 13.6V
BENTONĀ® BX-2 charger provides a constant voltage at 13.6V and current up to 5.0A. This is suitable for maintenance of 12V battery using Float charge approach at 100% of charge.Ā  It is also used as a power supply with maximum capacity of 13.6V/5A

7) Boost 16V
To recover severely discharged 12V batteries this mode is useful. High voltage (17V max) at 1.5A is applied for a maximum period of 3 hours. At finish of this stage it would switch to normal charging setting (14.4V).
