There is also an option for a SMARTPASS 120 - a 120A DC-DC power management solution to go in-conjunction with the CTEK DS250SE that boosts the charging amps to 140A and separates critical equipment from non-critical equipment ensuring that all emergency and navigation systems always have power. This fully automatic solution eliminates the requirement for a VSR or diodes and maximises your battery life. It also protects your battery from loads that are attached to it and cuts off at 11.5V.
