    Here at Fortis Battery Care we are the UK distributors of Micropower Battery Chargers, so whether you are thinking of upgrading your conventional charger to a more energy efficient High Frequency (HF) version or require spare parts for your existing Micropower charger we can help.

    Micropower’s most popular product is the SMC-HF battery charger but this has recently changed name to Sharp. These do the exact same thing as the previous SMC-HF versions but the range now also includes the previously named Robust chargers. These chargers are suitable for harsher environments such as working in wet and damp conditions or dusty environments.

    There has also been some models discontinued including the STC, MTM and MTM-HF.

    New chargers can be found here but if you require parts or aren’t sure which charger you need please contact us and we can help.
