Charge your passion!

THE K612 BATTERY CONTROLLER is one of those unfathomably brainy bits of kit which is so sophisticated that it might spontaneously develop its own intelligence, so don’t be surprised if you find it presenting Top Gear next month. All the BC range of automatic smart chargers are a cut above the usual trickle chargers – the nifty thing about the K612 is that it doesn’t demand any effort on the part of the operator. Just fit and forget, effectively.

The K612 has a fully-automated eight-cycle programme which controls battery analysis, recovery and reconditioning, recharging, desulfation and long-term maintenance for either 6V or 12V cells. You just set it to the required voltage, connect, and forget. The charger can be left for indefinite periods of time, it does not produce sparks, and it’s protected against short circuit, reverse polarity, overcharging, and overheating. The K612 is suitable for acid, MF, gel, AGM and VRLA type batteries. It comes with a UK plug, crocodile clips, full instructions and a three-year warranty.
