Acumen's Duo, which is capable of monitoring and charging two batteries simultaneously, now comes with the most sophisticated floating charge on the market and a stylish new black colour scheme.

Ideal for anyone lucky enough to have two bikes in their garage, the Duo can also be used for most vehicles with a 12V lead-acid battery, (including Maintenance Free and GEL varieties), such as ride-on mowers, jet-skis, quad bikes, etc.

Designed to charge, test and maintain and even recover badly discharged/sulphated batteries, the Duo uses 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.

Dual independent charging circuits enable the Platinum Duo to charge and maintain two batteries of different capacities, in separate machines or vehicles, at the same time. Better still, it only requires a single power socket for operation.

Durable, multifunctional and easy to use, the Acumen Duo is protected by a tough, splash-proof aluminium case (certified sealed to IP54), so it's ideal for use in garages, sheds, workshops and other demanding environments. Packed in a durable steel presentation case, the Duo comes complete with two waterproof eyelet leads for permanent connection to batteries, two crocodile leads for temporary connections and two 3-metre extension leads for extra reach. Plus wall bracket with fixings to keep things neat and tidy.

The Acumen Platinum Duo Black sells for £85.00 inc. VAT.
