The Manager30 is a complete battery management system for charging auxiliary batteries used in recreational automotive and marine applications. The dual battery system incorporates AC, DC and solar inputs to achieve the most efficient and flexible charging for an auxiliary battery bank.
Developed with ease of installation in mind, The Manager30 is compatible with all vehicles and alternator systems including the latest smart variable voltage alternators.
Whether you’re charging Lead Acid, Gel, Calcium, AGM or Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries, The Manager30 represents a complete DC to DC charging and maintenance solution. If you’re charging one auxiliary battery or more, The Manager30 will ensure they’re always fully charged, providing peace of mind when battery charge provides the power source for the comforts of home whilst travelling.
The Manager30 operates like 6 separate products:
It charges an auxiliary battery from the vehicle while on the move, it’s a 240 volt charger, a solar regulator, a battery isolator, a load disconnect controller, all with a remote battery monitor, making it a market leading product.
Charging lithium batteries:
Lithium batteries have improved storage capacity relative to size and weight. They do however require specific charging conditions in order to operate correctly and the battery itself must have an in-built cell management system. REDARC have designed a charging profile within The Manager30 to complement these in-built systems.
Green power priority
The Manager30 is designed to charge an auxiliary battery from multiple sources simultaneously. If 12 volt solar power is available, solar power will be used before topping up the output charging current from another source mains (if available) or DC vehicle power when on the move.
MPPT solar regulator
The built-in Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) solar regulator allows The Manager30 to deliver the maximum amount of power from portable solar panels, even during low light conditions.
Designed to show you auxiliary battery information and charge status. You can customise how your battery is charged and monitor where the charge is coming from. A user-friendly, graphical display monitor lets you know what’s going on, keeping you in control at all times. New colour optional monitor available as accessory in 2021.
Now upgraded to the -S3 varient, the BMS1230 will be compatible with the forthcoming RedVision system

I've been using this in my camping rig for about a year now and I must say it is an impressive piece of kit. From sub zero winter excursions to Sahara summers the M30 has not skipped a beat and is the perfect companion for the Lithium battery I use. After my long term test here are some of my personal pros and cons: Pros All in one unit - no "addons" required including support for Solar Hugely informative graphical control panel Input terminal block is detachable - removing the unit doesn't require disconnection of each individual input and output. Very useful if you don't want to leave it inside a vehicle when not in use. Compatible with every battery technology imaginable including LiFePO4 Cons: Its huge! Its not weatherproof which limits mounting options Stats are instantaneous and not averaged - so things like "days left until flat" depend on what is running at the moment you look at it. No way to export data - the controller provides some very useful charge and utilisation statistics and it would be great if you could export these to keep a long term log. Would I buy it again? Yes absolutely
