Intelligent Charging

Kinetik Intelligent 120 VAC to 12 VDC Power Converters are state-of-the-art electronic converters / battery chargers. Their compact size and quiet operation gives greater flexibility in selecting the mounting location for either OEM installation or after market replacement.

The Kinetik Intelligent Power Converters have a computer controlled charging module built in. This is a microprocessor-controlled device which constantly monitors the battery, and then automatically adjusts the converter output voltage based on its charge status. There are four (4) operating Modes (Normal, Boost, Storage and Desulfation/Equalize). Each mode is automatically selected by the microprocessor and ensures a fast yet safe recharge for the connected battery.

General Features

Type of Inverter
This is the way in which the power inverter will convert the power.

AC to DC: Converts common household AC power to DC Power.

DC to AC: Converts DC power to the common household AC power. Often times these converters can be plugged into the vehicles cigarette lighter.

AC to DC
Sine Wave
A true sine wave inverter will convert the power produced by your vehicle in a true sine wave. This allows for a cleaner power output with less distortion and will allow larger items like appliances to run cooler and quieter. A modified since wave inverter will not convert the power from your car and are typically only suited for smaller items such as fans or lights. If you're planning on hooking up items such as laptops/computers, game consoles or appliances, you want to use a true sine wave inverter.
Number of Power Outlets
This is the total number of outlets that the power inverter, power strip, or other power device has.
USB Port
This means that the item has a USB port. The port can be used to provide the unit with updates or to transfer data on to it.
Fan Cooled
A great feature to have if a power inverter generates a large amount of heat. Cooling fans can help regulate the temperature to prevent the inverter from overheating (burning).
Low Battery Shutdown
When the voltage in the vehicle drops below a certain point, the inverter will automatically shut itself off so prevent the vehicle battery from dying.

Hi-Tech Unit

February 27, 2012

This unit powers my garage stereo system: two alpine digital amps with three sets of componemt speakers and one set of three way 6x9s along with an alpine CDE-123 head unit and a sub bass unit along with battery charging as needed. You can also have a battery to power the stereo and have a direct connect to the charger, either or, your choice.
The stereo sounds amazing and at approx 1/3 plus volume the Kinetik is pushing 3.5 to 4 amps, way less then what I had thought. The whole system output is around 1000 watts. One of the best sound systems I have had and planning to do it again with another small cabin I am presently renovating. All purchases made through Sonic when they have in stock items available.

Battery Charger and Power Supply -90,60,45

January 9, 2013

I now have three Kinetik power supply/battery charger units. My 90amp unit operates my Alpine car stereo with two amps and 4 sets of speakers and a base. Unit two, my 60amp looks after battery charging and a power supply for my diesel pump. (portable unit) and the third unit (454amp) looks after indoor battery charging and lighting(12v LED) in our plant room. I am so happy with these units, Excellant delivery, quality and price, worth every penny.
