Introducing the TROLLBRIDGE24 – 12 to 24 Volt Battery Charger/Combiner to the Australian market.
Trolling Motor Onboard Charging System.
Charge your 24 volt Trolling Batteries from your 12 volt Outboard Motor.
Outperforms and also much cheaper than the DC to DC chargers currently being sold for this purpose in the Top End.
How does it work?
The Trollbridge24® Combiner allows you to charge your 24 volt trolling motor battery from the 12 volt alternator on your main outboard engine.
It works by automatically putting two 12 volt batteries in series when you need to run the trolling motor and in parallel for charging.
It is bi-directional so when not trolling, the trolling booster battery backs up your starting or house battery.
The Trollbridge24 is suitable for installations with alternators up to 100 amps and 24 volt trolling motors up to 85 amps.
For more information refer to the manufacturer’s specific details.
