The Phillips Industries STA-Charge Battery Charger is a battery charger for 12-volt liftgate/load batteries designed to improve battery efficiency.

When paired with a Phillips 8-gauge STA-Charge Harness, the STA-Charge Battery Charger can produce a faster charge rate than similar systems on the market today, according fo Phillips. Other systems use a 10-gauge harness which can increase the time it takes to charge batteries due to voltage drop.

Heavier-duty connectors between the STA-Charge Harness and STA-Charge Battery Charger allow for a better mechanical and electrical connection to increase the lifespan of the STA-Charge Battery Charger as well as the number of lift cycles from the liftgate.

The STA-Charge Battery Charger also features a Lock Out feature, which stops the charge to the trailer batteries when the brakes are pressed. When the STA-Charge pulls power from the auxiliary/ABS circuit to charge the trailer batteries, this safety measure ensures that all available power on the circuit is sourced to the ABS module when the brakes are engaged.

The Battery Charger also regulates over-charging of the trailer batteries and prevents the 12-volt truck battery from becoming so low that it doesn’t start.
