Battery charger PBCS 2A

Smart universal charger for charging and maintaining 12 V car, motorcycle and motor scooter batteries – even at low temperatures

Quick and efficient charging of 12 V batteries

The battery chargers from Trotec’s PBCS series offer you the right charger for every type of vehicle. The portable battery charger PBCS 2A with a charging current of 2 amperes and LED display is a microprocessor-controlled all-round charger with six charging cycles, trickle charge function and winter charging mode for 12 V car, motorcycle and motor scooter batteries between 4 Ah and 60 Ah. Both non-maintenance-free and maintenance-free 12 V batteries are supported, including wet batteries like lead acid, Ca/Ca and EFB batteries as well as gel and AGM batteries. Adapted to technically advanced and powerful batteries of modern vehicles, the charger offers you a comprehensive range of technical protective and maintenance mechanisms and ensures quick, gentle charging, thus attaining a long battery lifetime at full performance.

Protection against deep discharge, battery damage and battery-related breakdowns

If you drive a convertible with a seasonal license plate, a classic or vintage car or a motorised two-wheeler, you’ll be familiar with this problem: Low temperatures in the winter, rare use, short distance rides and age affect the battery and impair its performance. A lack of maintenance and care considerably decreases the battery’s service life. And this may well be the reason why your car refuses to start from one day to the next.

A problem that is not only time-consuming but also cost-intensive. Especially if a battery replacement is the only way to get your vehicle going again. Although battery technology is already very advanced nowadays, deeply discharged car batteries remain the most common cause of breakdowns – and there’s not always a neighbour with a jumper cable on the spot. With the trickle charge mode, the PBCS 2A protects the battery from deep discharge and maintains it at a constantly ideal charging level.

To ensure that your vehicle starts reliably

With the universally applicable battery charger PBCS 2A you ensure the reliability of your fleet and extend the service life of 12 V batteries. Problems with the battery pack are prevented – annoying start-up problems due to a too low charging capacity are a thing of the past.

The scope of equipment features and functions of the PBCS 2A comprises: 

  • Three adjustable programmes (standard charging mode, trickle charge mode, winter charging mode)
  • Four-stage charging progress indication (25 %, 50 %, 75 %, 100 %)
  • Optical warning function in the case of incorrect polarity of the battery terminals (incl. reverse polarity protection functionality)
  • Practical suspension eye for wall mounting
  • Fully insulated battery terminals

The intelligent microprocessor control of the PBCS 2A monitors the multi-stage charging cycle constantly and adapts it fully automatically if required.

Safety is also a top priority of the PBCS 2A

The charger is protected against dust and splash water by IP65 degree of protection. The PBCS 2A reliably protects your battery against excessive charge. Inadvertently reversing the battery poles during the connecting procedure is no problem either: The integrated reverse polarity protection functionality prevents short circuits, sparking as well as damage to the battery or the charger. Fully insulated battery terminals top off the safety package.

For reliable charging, maintenance and care of common 12 V batteries

The easy-to-handle PBCS 2A features the following three charging modes:

Standard charging mode

The standard charging mode with multi-state charging cycle is suitable for completely charging partially discharged lead acid, AGM and gel type 12 V batteries. The cyclically optimised charging process increases the battery’s service life.

Trickle charging mode

The trickle charge mode serves to permanently and reliably compensate for the battery’s self-discharge. The maximum charging capacity is maintained constantly without damaging the battery by excessive charging. Ideally suited to prevent deep discharge of the batteries of rarely used vehicles like vintage cars or convertibles with seasonal licence plates.

Winter charging mode

Modern batteries are extremely temperature-sensitive. When the ambient temperature drops below 5 °C, the chemical processes in a lead acid battery slow down. Then the winter charging mode is perfect for quickly charging 12 V batteries in cold environments (-20 °C to +5 °C) with an increased charging end voltage.

Notes regarding the charging time of batteries with the
battery charger PBCS 2A

The duration of the charging process depends on the respective charging status and the charging capacity of the battery. A four-stage charging indicator provides information on the charging progress.

Approximate charging time (up to 80 %) :

  •   4 Ah: approx. 2 hours
  • 10 Ah: approx. 5 hours
  • 30 Ah: approx. 15 hours
  • 60 Ah: approx. 30 hours

The convenient and compact battery charger PBCS 2A extends the service life of 12 V vehicle and motorcycle batteries as well as batteries for motor scooters and mobile lawn mowers and ensures the reliability of vehicles that are rarely used.

The right charger makes all the difference

The choice of the right charger should be carefully considered, depending on the amount of charging energy you require for your vehicle. Trotec offers you a total of 4 battery chargers, PBCS 2A, PBCS 4A, PBCS 6A and PBCS 10A, with a charging current of up to 10 A and a capacity of up to 200 Ah in the comprehensive car technology product rangeHere you can find an overview of the different battery chargers and their fields of application. To make sure that you have the right charger for every application purpose at hand!
