Mastervolt Mac Plus DC-DC chargers Win Boating Industry Magazine’s 2024 Top Products Award

LOWELL, Mich. – Mastervolt, a global leader in innovative autonomous power solutions, has been awarded a 2024 Top Product Award by Boating Industry Magazine for its 36V and 48V Mac Plus DC-DC chargers. Selected by the editorial staff at Boating Industry, the Top Product Awards recognize innovative products that have been recently introduced or significantly upgraded since January 1, 2023. Winners are featured in the May 2024 issue.

The 36V and 48V Mac Plus models have a new bi-directional technology that ensures both service and starter batteries receive all the power they need by using either side as an input or output, delivering a reliable and consistent charge. There is no risk of draining the starter battery when charging the house bank because it automatically monitors whether the engine is running or providing charge. The Mac Plus uses the proven Mastervolt 3-step+ charge algorithm, delivering a quick and easy charge, even to completely flat batteries. By knowing when the engine is running and providing charge, users can also be sure that the Mac Plus will never drain the starter battery.

The new models offer total power flexibility to users. With a wide DC input range, it allows all DC sources and can charge two batteries from a single alternator or charger. It supports a full range of chemistries and battery types, including lithium, and also functions seamlessly with modern alternators such as Euro 5 and 6, ensuring proper charging by providing constant power, even when the alternator is inactive. Additionally, the models feature parallel configuration of up to ten units that will provide over 100 amperes and advanced high-frequency technology with modern microprocessors ensuring minimal power loss when switching from 36/48V to 12/24V and vice versa. The Mac Plus is also compatible with CZone®, NMEA 2000® and MasterBus, allowing full monitoring and control.

Designed to endure the harshest conditions, the Mac Plus has battery temperature optimized charging and high-quality aluminum housing to ensure superior protection against dust and water ingress. Additionally, the power efficient design allows the Mac Plus to operate silently and without a fan.
