IP22 - Lead from charger to battery

Hello

I was recently gifted a VICTRON Blue Smart Battery Charger 12V 30A IP22 (3) Outputs to replace an old Euro style charger for my caravan.

Unfortunately, the gift did not include a lead to connect from the Charger screw terminal (AwG6) to my battery. I would prefer a lead without clamps.

All I can seem to find is IP65 accessories.

What lead do I need to go from the IP22 to the battery?

Hi,

I have the same charger. It’s great.

The intention is for you to make your own lead from the battery to the charger. This is a good feature that allows you to custom fit the charger to your needs.

you need a length of cable of the correct size, and then you need some connectors that you crimp on to suit your battery type. These are cheap on Amazon, as is the crimping tool.

be sure to read the free ebook by victron, here is the link: Wiring Unlimited Book

Enjoy!
