This Victron BatteryProtect disconnects the battery from non-essential loads before it is completely discharged (which would damage the battery) or before it has insufficient power left to crank the engine.

The BatteryProtect is a uni-directional device. It can only deal with current in one direction, so either current to a load or current from a charger, but not both currents at the same time. In addition to this, current can only flow from the battery terminal to the load terminal. In case of use with a load, the battery connects to the battery terminal, and in case of use with a charger, the charger connects to the battery terminal.

Also check out the Victron Smart BatteryProtect (with Bluetooth).


Video - introducing the BatteryProtect: 

Sizing your BatteryProtect
You need to calculate the loads that you're going to have controlled by the device, times 1.25 to get the correct Amps. If you have <50A of anticipated loads, get the 65A model, etc. You want the version that is equivalent to your anticipated loads x 1.25. Oversizing is not an issue, if you anticipate bigger loads in the future, other than footprint of the device and cost.

The BatteryProtect is available in 12/24 V (65, 100 or 220A) and 48 V (100 A).
