    • The Powermania Turbo ME Series waterproof onboard battery charger is compact, feature-packed and epoxy-potted for true, long-term waterproofness
    • 3 Stage Smart Charge: Turbo ME charges the battery in three sequential stages - Bulk, Absorption, and Float
      • This mechanism is proven to bring battery to its fullest charge
      • Prevents self discharge
    • Adaptive Loading:
      • Monitors each battery's charge status continuously
      • Actively adjusts the charger's output level on each output bank accordingly
      • Allows more charging power to automatically go to the more depleted battery and less power goes to the battery that is closer to a full charge
      • Allows full charge to all connected batteries in the shortest time
    • Waterproof:
      • Fully epoxy potted for true, long-term waterproofness
      • Shock and corrosion-resistant
      • IP65 rated (Ingress Protection) for splash proof
    • Battery Type Selector:
      • Allows the user to select different types of 12V DC batteries to charge
      • Initial factory setting is at "Flooded Lead Acid / AGM Charge Mode"
      • The other two charge modes are "Gel Charge Mode" and "Safe Charge Mode"
      • The Safe Charge Mode is to be used when the user is unable to identify the type of battery in use
    • The Turbo ME charger is prewired with DC output cables (ring terminals). Each cable is equipped with safety inline fuses
    • Protection:
      • Over-Voltage Protection: If the charger detects voltage of 16V DC or higher from its connected battery, the charger will shut off due to abnormality
      • Over-Current Protection: The charger limits itself to its maximum current output capacity
      • Ignition Protection: The charger is encapsulated to eliminate any internal spark from igniting external surroundings
      • Reverse Polarity Protection: The charger is equipped with safety fuses on its output cables. If a user incorrectly connects a positive output cable to a battery's negative terminal and vice versa, the fuse will be blown and thus disconnects the charger and the battery. When replacing blown fuses
      • Short Circuit Protection: The short circuit protection feature protects charger from sudden burst of excessive high current caused when any positive output ring gets in contact with one of the negative output rings
      • Overheat Protection: If the charger detects its ambient temperature higher than the safety threshold, it will shut off to protect the charger from overheat damage. Once the ambient temperature returns to normal, the charger will automatically turn itself on again
