The Hawkins Power-8 is a domestic battery charger designed to meet market requirements for low cost automotive battery chargers. The Hawkins Power-8 is made from high quality materials and components. There are two indicator on the front panel. The orange indicator shows that charge is being delivered to the battery while the green indicates a fully charged battery.
The Hawkins Power-8 charger delivers its rated current at the outset and then tapers slowly down as the battery reaches full charge. The Hawkins Power-8 will continue to trickle charge the battery past the nominal 13,8V of the fully charged battery and must be monitored periodically to prevent gassing and overcharge. The Hawkins Power-8 is not automatic and therefore not recommended for sealed batteries unless the charge voltage is monitored and the charger disconnected when the battery terminal voltage reaches 14.4V (when the green light turns on).
The Hawkins Power-8 was designed in compliance with IEC 335-2-2 and has a two year limited warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
The Hawkins Power-8 is locally manufactured.
