Ultra high efficiency “green” battery charger
With up to 95% efficiency, these chargers generate up to four times less heat when compared to the industry standard. And once the battery is fully charged, power consumption reduces to 0.5 Watt, some five to ten times better than the industry standard. Durable, safe and silent – Low thermal stress on the electronic components. – Protection against ingress of dust, water and chemicals. – Protection against overheating: the output current will reduce as temperature increases up to 60°C, but the charger will not fail. – The chargers are totally silent: no cooling fan or any other moving parts.
A lead-acid battery that has been insufficiently charged or has been left discharged during days or weeks will deteriorate due to sulfation. If caught in time, sulfation can sometimes be partially reversed by charging the battery with a low current up to a higher voltage.
Recovery function for fully discharged batteries
Most reverse polarity-protected chargers will not recognize, and therefore not recharge a battery that has been discharged to zero or nearly zero Volts. The Blue Smart IP65 Charger however will attempt to recharge a fully discharged battery with low current and resume normal charging once sufficient voltage has developed across the battery terminals.
Less corrosion of the positive plates Even the lower float charge voltage that follows the absorption period will cause grid corrosion. It is therefore essential to reduce the charge voltage even further when the battery remains connected to the charger for more than 48 hours.
The optimal charge voltage of a lead-acid battery varies inversely with temperature. The Blue Smart IP65 Charger measures ambient temperature during the test phase and compensates for temperature during the charging process. The temperature is measured again when the charger is in the low current mode during float or storage. Special settings for a cold or hot environment are therefore not needed.
Li-ion battery mode
The Blue Smart IP65 Charger uses a specific charging algorithm for Li-ion (LiFePO₄) batteries, with automatic Li-ion under-voltage protection reset.

I have been using this pump all summer to keep my boat, lawn tractor and a whole bunch of other stuff filled up around here. I still use 5 gallon containers for their portability and even with 10 of those I'll have to fill them twice to get through the summer. This pump has been great for my needs. If you are sick and tired of having to hold a 5 gallon container of fuel in the air while attempting to get those funky nozzles to work, buy this pump.
So far it’s working as well as I had hoped. Nothing is perfect when trying to transfer gas, but this does a very decent job. You need to make sure to lift the nozzle and hose up at the end of the fuel transfer to allow any residual fuel to run back into the tank or it will dribble out all over. It empties most of a five gallon gas can in a couple minutes without having to lift and hold the can up which is exactly what I wanted.
