Xantrex Xplore Battery Charger

Oct 5, 2021

The new XPLORE Battery Charger from Xantrex, the first of its kind that can charge batteries in a vessel containing multiple battery chemistries – for example, a lithium-ion house battery and lead-acid engine start batteries – all from a single charger! The XPLORE can charge up to 6 battery banks at the same time, a truly unique and outstanding feature that eliminates the need for multiple onboard chargers, further simplifying installation and maintenance of a vessel. Future product upgrades are easily installed using the built-in USB port. The XPLORE meets all applicable global safety and quality standards – CE, ABYC, FCC Class-B, UL and CEC/DOE.
