SAN DIEGO, Ca. - Power-Sonic Corporation has introduced a complete range of lightweight switch mode chargers to complement their world renowned range of rechargeable batteries.

The C-Series Chargers are a range of "switching type" chargers which operate without the use of transformers. Integrated circuits control and regulate current and voltage. The chargers automatically switch from the higher fast charge voltage to the lower float voltage when batteries are close to being fully charged.

The chargers are useable on domestic and overseas voltages from 110VAC - 60Hz to 240VAC - 50 Hz.

The range consists of 6, 12 and 24 output voltage models. The chargers are U.L. and European C.E. approved and are RoHS compliant.
