ChargerZivan NG1
ZIVAN'S are high-frequency battery chargers. ZIVAN charger's have the ability to detect problems with the battery itself. As batteries age, cells tend to become weak and will not charge properly. Using a standard charger often produces high battery temperatures resulting in the gassing and even boiling of the electrolyte. The ZIVAN charger uses both voltage and time limits to detect the end of each charge phase. This allows the charger to automatically switch to the next charge phase even if the battery is not performing properly. As a result the sulfation of the battery plates decreases and the life of the battery is increased, saving the life of the Battery.
