Acumen has introduced a striking new 'Black' version of the popular Titanium V&A Smart Charger. Durable, multifunctional and easy to use, Acumen's Titianium Black V&A features a tough, splash-proof aluminium case (certified sealed to IP54), so it's ideal for use in garages, sheds, workshops and other demanding environments.

Designed for use with all types of 12V lead-acid batteries - including Maintenance Free and GEL varieties - the Titanium Black tests, charges, maintains and can even recover badly discharged/sulphated batteries.

The Titianium Black delivers the most sophisticated floating charge on the market, using advanced microprocessor controlled charging and maintenance software, to deliver the optimum amount of charge for the battery's condition. This advanced method prevents overcharging, which can shorten the battery's lifespan.

The Titanium Black is also designed to offer the user effective and easy to follow diagnostics. A backlit LCD voltmeter and ammeter indicates whether the battery is holding the correct charge or if it is requiring a disproportionate amount of power to stay charged. In addition, protection against reverse polarity, over voltage and over-heating is built-in.

Alongside the LCD display are six coloured LED's, indicating power, polarity, battery condition, and recovery mode, so the user can ascertain battery condition and the Titanium Black's operating mode easily and quickly.

The Acumen Titianium Black V&A Smart Charger is priced at £60 inc. VAT and comes complete with a three-metre extension chord, a waterproof lead for permanent connection to your machine's battery, a crocodile lead for temporary connection, and is even supplied in a stylish steel presentation case.
