The Land Cruiser 100 series alarm system continually consumes a lot of power, so when the car is not in use for some time, this drains the batteries.
I had an idea to connect the car on shore power, similar to the marine environment, when the LC is parked up at the front of the house.
I required a specialist charger of which I can permanently fit into the LC, which is also built for harsh environments, and needed to be waterproof.
I purchased a Blue Power IP67 Battery Charger from Victron Energy as it is an Adaptive 4-stage charger (bulk, absorption, float and storage) of which is also maintenance free. I also bought IP68 plugs for the connections.
I added an extra connector to make bumper removal easier, when necessary.
Blue Power IP67 Battery Charger, designed to charge batteries 14-225 Ah (including a Start Interrupt Function)
A relay was added to prevent the car from starting whilst it is connected to power. This is an added bonus to prevent me driving off whilst connected.
This is the layout of the charger on the right hand side of the Engine Bay.
Connection on ARB front bumper.
RCD (Residual Current Device) on wall of house.
Voilà! Continuous charge!
