"Simple Great Product"

I've got two of these now. They are simple to connect and simple to monitor via the Victron App. They work well. I use them for 'camping batteries', that sit around for periods without being used, to maintain the batteries and ensure they are ready to go when I am.

Product Description

Victron Blue IP67 Smart Charger 12/17, 1 Output, 5 year warranty. The Blue Smart IP67 Waterproof Charger is the new professional battery charger with built-in bluetooth. The Blue Smart IP67 Waterproof Charger can be used on devices in your workshop and on motor vehicles, such as (classic) cars; motorbikes; boats and camper-vans.

The battery is charged, smartly... to perfect condition:

The seven-step charging algorithm gets the best out of your battery. The charger gives the battery the power it needs, maintains its health, ensures better performance... and a longer life.

Recovery of deeply-discharged 'dead' batteries:

Unlike other brands, the Blue Smart IP67 Charger Waterproof will attempt to recharge a deeply-discharged battery by force-feeding it with a low current. Normal charging will then be resumed as soon as there is sufficient voltage across the battery terminals.

Check the status of your battery remotely:

Blue Smart IP67 Charger Waterproof is equipped with built-in Bluetooth, so the status of the charger and the battery can be checked on a smartphone, tablet or laptop. All settings of the charger can be configured with the VictronConnect app.

Bluetooth Smart enabled:

The Blue Smart IP67 Charger is the wireless solution to monitor voltage and current, to change settings and to update
the charger when new features become available. With Bluetooth, the functionality of the IP67 charger is enhanced and is similar to that of our IP22 and IP65 chargers.

Completely encapsulated: waterproof, shockproof and ignition protected:

Water, oil or dirt will not damage the Blue Smart IP67 Charger. The casing is made of cast aluminium and the
electronics are moulded in resin.

The highest efficiency ever:

Setting a new industry standard: with 92% efficiency or better, these chargers waste three to four times less heat. And once the battery is fully charged, power consumption reduces to less than a Watt, some five to ten times better than the industry standard.

Adaptive 5-stage charge algorithm: bulk – absorption – recondition – float – storage:

The Blue Smart Charger features a microprocessor controlled ‘adaptive’ battery management. The ‘adaptive’ feature will automatically optimise the charging process relative to the way the battery is being used.

Storage Mode: less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use:

The storage mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge during 24 hours. In the storage mode float voltage is reduced to 2,2 V/cell (13,2 V for a 12 V battery) to minimise gassing and corrosion of the positive plates. Once a week the voltage is raised back to the absorption level to ‘equalize’ the battery. This feature prevents stratification of the electrolyte and sulphation, a major cause of early battery failure.

Also charges Li-ion (LiFePO₄) batteries:

LiFePO₄ batteries are charged with a simple bulk – absorption – float algorithm.

Protected against overheating:

Can be used in a hot environment such as a machine room. Output current will reduce as temperature increases up to 60°C, but the charger will not fail.

Two LEDs for status indication:

  • Yellow LED: bulk charge (blinking fast), absorption (blinking slow), float (solid), storage (off)
  • Green LED: power on

Product Q&A

Ask Us a Question
  • What size battery charger do I need for my lead acid battery I have in my camper?

    A good battery charger rule of thumb for charging a lead acid battery, is using a charger with output current (amps) of 10-20% of the battery total stored capacity (Ah).

    So, for example if the battery is 12V 100Ah, the charger need to be minimum of 10A and maximum of 20A.  Often splitting the difference at 15% (so a 12V ~15A charger) is a good option. Happy charging!

  • The 17a blue smart victron charger. Will it give me a Bluetooth reading when it is connected to a battery but not connected to 240v?

    Hi There,

    For the Bluetooth to be functional, the charger will require a 240V connection.

  • Does 12/25w charger come with Aust plug?

    Hi There,

    Yes we can confirm that this charger does come with an Australian plug as standard.
