Isolators prevent overcharging…

WHERE additional 12V batteries are installed on a vehicle, the problem of simultaneous charging has been solved by Merlin Equipment with its Powerline Battery Isolator.

When charging, the device splits available current between each battery. When using the ancillary battery as a power supply, the Isolator stops current being drawn from the vehicle battery.

Suitable for use with single and twin alternator charging systems up to 190A continuous output, Merlin says the Isolators prevent overcharging and can be used to supply up to four batteries. Prices start at £30. (01491-824333).
