NGOZI: This charger is only suitable for charging 12V Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries(LiFEPO4) containing an inbuilt battery management system (BMS) that features under and over voltage protection with cell balancing. The charger should not be used to charge any other types of batteries, or for charging damaged or non-rechargeable batteries, doing so may result in in a risk of fire, death, or serious injury.
  5. NGOZI: Never charge a frozen battery. If a battery is frozen, move it into a warmer area and let the battery thaw/warm up before charging it.
  6. NGOZI: Do not expose this charger to water, rain, snow, or dusty environments.
  7. Chenjezo: Ensure the charge voltage does not exceed the battery’s recommended maximum charging voltage. If you are unsure of the maximum charging voltage of your battery, please consult your battery’s manufacturer.
  8. Chenjezo: Ensure that the continuous output current of the charger does not exceed the battery’s recommended maximum charging current. If you are unsure of the maximum charging current of your battery, please consult your battery’s manufacturer.
  9. NGOZI: Never smoke or allow a spark or flame in vicinity of battery or engine. This may cause the battery to explode.
  10. NGOZI: Never touch the battery clamps together when the charger is switched on.
  11. NGOZI: Do not connect the battery charger output in reverse polarity (e.g., RED clamp to B- and Black clamp to B+).

  • The iTECHBC40 battery charger is a smart multi-stage lithium battery charger. This charger uses the latest switch-mode battery charging technology, to ensure fast and efficient charging of your LiFEPO4 battery. The multi-stage charging algorithm delivers a fast, efficient, and consistent charge with no voltage drop. The iTECHBC40 will prolong the longevity of the battery cells and prevents premature battery failure.
  • The iTECHBC40 battery charger also features an innovative boost-charge feature; this helps activate a battery with low voltage. The boost-charge feature will “wake up” a weak or flat battery to a suitable recharging voltage.

Kukhazikitsa charger
If permanently mounting the battery charger, the location where it is mounted must be:

  • Zouma: Do not allow any liquids to drip or splash onto the unit
  • Kuli: Do not install in direct sunlight or close to any heat sources, the ideal ambient air temperature is between 15°C to 25°C.
  • Wolowera mpweya: Allow at least 60mm of clearance around the charger to allow for adequate air flow, and make sure that the cooling fan and ventilation slots are not obstructed.
  • Choyera: Do not install the charger in a dusty environment, as the charger contains a cooling fan, any dust present will be sucked into the charger which may damage or shorten the lifespan of the charger.
  • Close to batteries: Avoid excessive cable lengths as this will cause voltage drop and may cause problems with charging your batteries. Zindikirani: If the charger is to be mounted on a hard surface (such as metal or wood board) please ensure some anti vibration mounts are used between the charger and the mounting surface.

  1. Make sure that the Main Switch on the front panel is in the OFF position, and the 240VACsupply is disconnected.
  2. Connect the DC output to the battery requiring charge, pay close attention to the polarity when connecting the charger to the battery (RED to Battery +, BLACK to Battery -), as reverse polarity may cause damage to the charger.
  3. Connect the AC power cable to the AC input socket and turn on the 240V AC supply.
  4. Turn the Main Switch on the front panel to the ON position, the battery charger will now begin to charge the connected battery.
  5. When done charging the battery, turn the Main Switch on the front panel to the OFF position, unplug the AC power cable.
  6. Remove the charging cables from the battery.

Zambiri-Stage Charging Algorithm
The iTECHBC40 40A Intelligent Lithium Battery Charger utilises a 3-stage charging algorithm to deliver a fast, efficient, and consistent charge, prolonging the life of your battery. The stages can be visualised in the graph below, with voltage(V) and current(I) over time(T).


Kulipira StagEs:

  • Stage 1 Bulk or Boost Charge (Constant Current): Izi stage supplies the maximum rated current of the charger at a constant rate until the battery reaches the final charging voltage (absorption voltage) this ensures, that the battery is charged to approximately 80% capacity in the shortest amount of time.
  • Stage 2 Absorption Charge (Constant Voltage): Mu stage, the charging voltage is held constant for the remaining 20% capacity of the battery, and the current is gradually decreased as the battery approaches full charge.
  • Stage 3 Float Charge: Once the battery has reached full charge, the charger voltage is then lowered and held constant. This prevents over charging the battery and prolongs the life. This stage is often referred to as a maintenance mode, rather than charging a battery, it keeps an already charged battery from discharging while providing power to any additional loads connected to the battery, such as fridges and lights.

Malipiro Stage Indicators:

  • When the charger is in the first stage of charge, the Bulk LED will be flashingiTECHWORLD-iTECHBC40-40A-Intelligent-Lithium-Battery-Charger-fig-5
  • When the charger is in the second stage of charge, the Abs LED will be flashingiTECHWORLD-iTECHBC40-40A-Intelligent-Lithium-Battery-Charger-fig-6
  • When the charger is in the maintenance stage, the Float LED will be lit solid.
    When a load is applied, it is normal for the battery voltage to decrease until approximately 13.0 Volts, where the charger will start charging again.iTECHWORLD-iTECHBC40-40A-Intelligent-Lithium-Battery-Charger-fig-7
  • If all lights are illuminated solid, turn the charger off and inspect all connections between the charger and battery to ensure that they are tight.
    Then disconnect the battery and check the DC output fuses.iTECHWORLD-iTECHBC40-40A-Intelligent-Lithium-Battery-Charger-fig-8
