If you get to drive your classic car every day, all year 'round, more power to you. But if your car spends rainy days and winters in the garage, you might find yourself in need of a powerful battery charger.
Designed with vintage and classic vehicles in mind, the Exile EX-1 Battery Keeper™ from Retrosound is perfect for anyone who doesn't drive their vehicle every day. It offers four charging stages:
a diagnostic stage that reads battery status and starts the process with a gentle charge;
a primary charge stage that charges the battery up to 90% capacity;
a finishing charge stage that brings the battery up to 100% capacity;
a “battery keeper” stage, which maintains a healthy charge without over-charging.
This versatile charger works with AGM (gel cell) and standard/maintenance-free batteries, in both 6-volt and 12-volt systems. You'll enjoy longer battery life and the security of knowing that your baby is ready for a drive whenever you are.
The dust- and water-resistant Battery Keeper can be mounted permanently next to the battery in almost any vehicle. When you're ready to drive, just unplug and hit the road. If you forget to plug it back in when you get home, the EX-1 won't drain your battery. It's also designed for safety, with reverse polarity protection, short circuit fault protection, and “no spark” technology that takes the danger out of attaching it to your battery.
Two quick connect harnesses -- one with battery clamps and one with O-rings -- are included, along with a handy storage bag. You'll also get the EM-1 LED Battery Monitor, which makes it easy to check your battery's status with just a glance.
