New STA-CHARGE™ Battery Charger Available from Phillips Industries

New STA-CHARGE™ Battery Charger Available from Phillips Industries
Santa Fe Springs, CA (April 22, 2016) Phillips Industries has introduced the new STA-CHARGE™ Battery Charger for 12V liftgate/load batteries, which maximizes battery efficiency.
When asked what makes the STA-CHARGE™ Battery Charger a better alternative compared to other like charging systems, Adam Bean, new product development manager at Phillips, commented, “When paired with a Phillips 8 gauge STA-CHARGE™ Harness, the STA-CHARGE™ Battery Charger produces a faster charge rate than similar systems on the market today.  Other systems use a 10 gauge harness which can increase the time it takes to charge the batteries due to voltage drop.  Heavier duty connectors between the STA-CHARGE™ Harness and STA-CHARGE™ Battery Charger also allow for a better mechanical and electrical connection which increases the life-span of the STA-CHARGE™ Battery Charger, as well as the number of lift cycles from the liftgate.”
The STA-CHARGE™ Battery Charger also incorporates a patented Lock Out feature, which stops the charge to the trailer batteries when the brakes are pressed.  When the STA-CHARGE™ is pulling power from the auxiliary/ABS (BLUE) circuit to charge the trailer batteries, this safety measure ensures that all available power on this circuit is sourced to the ABS module when the brakes are engaged. 
In addition to a faster charge rate and the patented Lock Out feature, the STA-CHARGE™ also regulates over-charging of the trailer batteries and prevents the 12V truck battery from becoming so low that it doesn’t start.
