Phoenix Smart Charger 30A/50A

Finally! After quite a few delays it’s here, and in stock: the first batch of our brand new Phoenix Smart Charger series. It’s available for both 12V and 24V battery banks. The complete line-up includes six variations – let’s take a closer look and see what’s new.

The Phoenix Smart Charger is available for both 12V and 24V installations.  There are two 12V models: one has a 30 Amp output – the other 50 Amps. For the 24V models it’s 16 Amps or 25 Amps. Each of these can be ordered with a two- or a three-output configuration. For full details, download the Datasheet on our website.

The two-output configuration provides full rated-power to one outlet, and up to 3 Amps to the second outlet – ideal for maintaining a starter battery, for example. The three-output configuration can provide full power to each outlet – allowing you to charge up to three separate banks of batteries simultaneously.

The AC inlet cable needs to be ordered separately, there are three types available – for Australia; for New Zealand; and a third for Europe and the UK.

VictronConnect: configure and monitor

A Bluetooth-enabled smart phone, tablet or other device can be used to monitor, change settings, and to update the charger whenever new software features become available:

Intelligent charge algorithm

Phoenix Smart chargers have all the Victron features which help ensure long battery life and optimal charging:

Paralleling and Smart Battery Sense?

Although these features are not available at the time of writing, they will be enabled by a free firmware update, later in 2019.


Typical applications for the Phoenix Smart Charger will be in Boat or Camper van installations.  Phoenix Smart Charger can also be used as a power source. Set the output voltage with your Bluetooth-enabled device.
