Charging unit for a LiFePO4

Hi,

I just bought an old camper van and there is a victron system built in. The battery (LiFePO4 12.8V/100Ah) is charged via alternator.

Now, I would also like to be able to charge the battery from a 220 wall socket.

What charger would you recommend?

These parts are already on board:

  • Battery Management System VE.Bus BMS, 17724
  • Smart Battery Protect 12/24V 65A, 18974
  • Smart Battery Protect 12/24V-100A, 18975
  • Lade-Wandler VCC 1212-30, 18017
  • LiFePO4 Battery 12.8V/100Ah Smart, 1280Wh


Sorry, competely new to this.

Many thanks,
Cmyk

A Victron inverter/charger would be able to charge the battery from AC (and also supply AC from battery). More useful than a charger-only device.
