Redarc BCDC CORE 'In-Cabin' 25A DC Quick Connect Battery Charger | In Cabin use only | BCDCN1225-QC

Regular price $409.00 inc GST


Note: This model has been designed as a strictly IN CABIN USE only model. It is not waterproof and is not advised to use in an environment exposed to water or moisture. Recommended use would be inside a caravan or in the vehicle.

Designed for easy use, the Redarc Quick connect will allow you to easily disconnect or reconnect the BCDC unit with just a click of an Anderson connector!

Fitted with Genuine Anderson connectors for Solar input and output connection: 
- Input from vehicle (Red wire into Grey 3way Anderson type connector, includes ignition wire fitted for easy connection in low voltage vehicles)
- Input from unregulated solar panel (Yellow wire into Black Anderson)
- Output to secondary battery (Brown wire to Grey Anderson)
- Spade terminals (to easily change between the battery chemistry)

The 3 way Anderson type connector is not a genuine Anderson as Anderson products do not provide this model. This connector will fit all genuine Anderson's.

The 3 way Anderson connector can be connected to either a standard 50 Amp Anderson, or, to a 3way Anderson connector to include the ignition wire. The ignition wire is recommended to run for all low voltage vehicles.

REDARC's BCDC Core 25A DC to DC In-Cabin Battery Charger is the next evolution of the legendary BCDC platform that has been powering off-grid adventures for over 10 years. 

The BCDC Core is the perfect DC to DC charging solution for in-cabin, canopy, or battery box setups where dust and weatherproofing isn’t required. Each BCDC Core features REDARC’s tried and tested dual input DC charging tech plus an MPPT solar regulator and Green Power Priority all in the familiar and compact BCDC form factor. These features allow the BCDC Core to efficiently charge from both the alternator and solar simultaneously, ensuring maximum charge capacity no matter the situation.

Looking for a DC-DC Charger for an under bonnet installation? The REDARC BCDC Classic range in 25amp, 40amp and 50amp models could be what you're looking for.

Max Charge Efficiency

The BCDC Core features a Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) solar regulator and 'Green Power Priority'. With these features the BCDC Core will charge from both solar and the alternator simultaneously, maximising its charge rate and minimising the load on your alternator, saving fuel. 

Compact & Silent

With no loud fans or relays and a small form factor, the BCDC Core can be tucked away, leaving room in the cabin for more important things. Don't ruin the look of your interior with bulky electronics. Hide it under the rear floor, behind a side panel or under the seats and make your power set up look like it was meant to be there.  

Lithium Ready 

With chemistry specific charging profiles, including lithium the BCDC Core ensures your batteries are ready for your next adventure. The award-winning technology in the BCDC Core has been independently verified and tested to ensure battery life is maximised, charging your battery to a proven 100%.*

For most applications, the BCDC Core 25A is suitable for battery bank sizes of 60-200AH for AGM and lead acid and up to 100AH for lithium. Check the manufacturer’s data for your battery and ensure that the ‘Continuous Current Rating’ of the charger does not exceed the manufacturer’s recommended maximum charging current. For higher capacity needs of over 200AH, REDARC recommends the BCDC Core 40A. 

*Large capacity battery banks may require a few cycles to fully charge.

Backed by the Best

The BCDC Core is designed, tested and manufactured in Australia and is backed by our leading technical support and national REDNetwork certified installer network.
