Heavy Duty Applications
POWERGUARD HD  is designed to return a 100% discharged battery to full charge in eight hours or less; everything from a 6, 12, or 18 cell battery all the way up to a 24 or even a 40 cell battery. With an 18% start rate and 4 to 5% finish rate, the POWERGUARD HD chargers are built to return 108% to 112% of your battery’s rated capacity in an eight-hour period.



Light Duty Applications
POWERGUARD LD chargers are rated to return an 80% discharged battery to full charge in eight hours and should not be used in applications where overdischarging may occur. POWERGUARD LD is designed for light duty applications and is available in both single and three-phase.


The POWERGUARD SCR charger will charge every battery to maximum capacity regardless of temperature, depth of discharge, battery age or AC line voltage variations. The Powerguard SCR is your solution for these demanding applications:

  • Batteries used in freezers
  • Batteries with high-energy density
  • VRLA (sealed) batteries


LIFEGUARD 3 is designed to protect against either charging problems or employee errors. With features like automatic refresh charge, automatic start, automatic shutdown, stop push button, wrong battery protection, and cool-down timer, just to name a few, LIFEGUARD 3 is monitoring the charging cycle so you don’t have to.


LIFEPLUS TC3 is the latest generation of high-frequency smart chargers.  Plug ‘n Play Flexibility responds dynamically to the voltage and ampere-hour capacity of the battery attached to it, LIFEPLUS TC3 automatically delivers the optimal charge every time without user intervention. LIFEPLUS is the easiest high-frequency charger in the industry to operate.

With opportunity charging the LIFEPLUS TC3 offers three user-friendly ways to employ opportunity charging – or charging during idle periods – to extend battery run times.


POWERTECH is a high frequency smart charger. POWERTECH assesses each battery’s charging requirements and is designed to save you money on utilities, watering, and battery life.

PowerTech dynamically assesses each battery’s charging requirements, which means that one PowerTech charger can recharge batteries from 450 to 1200 AH without adjustment – as long as they are the same voltage. So, you can recharge any 36-volt battery on any PowerTech 36-volt charger. Should your operation change trucks or move from standard to high-energy batteries, there is no need to purchase new chargers – your PowerTech charger will adjust automatically. And PowerTech can be set for standard flooded or cold storage batteries.
