240 Volt Charging
Included in the package is a 240 Volt 10 Amp battery charger.
This dedicated lithium LiFePO4 charger is fully regulated and designed to ensure that no overcharging will occur when in use. The Thumper Battery Hub may be stored with the 240 volt battery battery charger permanently connected, however, it is not necessary to do so.
The battery charger is designed to connect directly into the 50 Amp Anderson located on the front of the Battery Hub labelled ’12 Volt Input / Output’. Simply connect the charger to your 240 volt and directly into the battery hub. The charger will illuminate with a RED light when charging and will turn GREEN only once the battery has reached a full charge.
Isolating the Thumper Battery Hub / Storing
The Thumper Battery Hub is fitted with a isolation switch, making storing the battery hub extremely easy!
This isolation switch is designed to disconnect all power connections on the Thumper Battery Hub, excluding only the 50 Amp Anderson on the front of the Hub labelled ’12 Volt Input / Output’. This particular connection is left usable for the purpose of charging.
When the isolation switch has been triggered, no power will be available at any connection point on the Thumper Battery Hub. The voltage meter will not illuminate and the DC charger (if fitted) will not operate.
Only once the lower toggle on the isolation switch has been manually reset, will all of the connections within the Battery Hub be restored with power. This ensures that when you are storing your Battery Hub, you do so with complete peace of mind that the battery will be charged and ready to use the very next time you need it.
Note: It is recommended to charge the Battery Hub via the use of the provided 240 Volt battery charger prior to each use.
Battery capacity, Maximum discharge and connection points
The Thumper Lithium Battery Hub offers 120 AH of usable battery power and is fitted internally with a ‘Battery Management System’ (BMS) rated to 120 Amps.
The 120 Amp BMS is equal to approx. 1440 watts of power. This refers to the maximum discharge capacity the battery can release to run heavy appliances such as Inverters, air compressors, etc. The maximum draw on the Thumper Lithium 120 AH Battery Hub is 1440 watts.
Low draw appliances are designed to connect directly into the 12 volt accessory sockets located on the front of the Thumper Battery Hub. Appliances with heavier draws, up to 50 Amps, can be connected via the 50 Amp Anderson connector labelled ’12 Volt Input / Output’.
For larger output requirements, exceeding 50 Amps but limited to 100 Amps, it is recommended to use one of the two 120 Amp Anderson connectors fitted to the top of the Battery Hub
Using the DC battery Charger | Note: this section will not apply to models with no DC charger fitted
The Thumper Lithium Battery Hub includes optional models for a DC battery Charger (Projecta or Redarc). The DC battery charger has been hard-wired and internally protected with circuit breaker protection. The DC charger is wired to two dedicated 50 Amp Anderson connectors on the Thumper Battery Hub, labelled ‘Alternator Input’ and ‘Unregulated solar input’.
Alternator Input: The DC charger is designed to alter the input voltage from the vehicle to provide a regulated charge to the Thumper Lithium Battery Hub. Vehicle charging must be connected to the Anderson labelled ‘Alternator Input’ in order to utilize the DC Battery Charger.
If left to operate without an override, the DC charger will engage its charge when the vehicle’s starter battery reaches a charged voltage of approx. 13.2 volts.
In order to over-ride any low voltage issues the vehicle may experience, the Thumper Battery Hub has been equipped with a ‘Low Voltage Switch’. The low voltage switch is designed to work in conjunction with the DC battery charger and the wiring loom provided to allow the charger to operate as ‘ignition activated’, rather than activating on voltage
Switch in ON position:
When ‘ON’ the ignition switch will illuminate blue and will act to immediately engage the DC charger The DC charger will no longer isolate from the vehicle starter battery when this switch is ON. It is recommended to install the vehicle wiring loom if using this switch as the isolator in the loom will act to isolate the main battery from the Battery Hub.
Switch in OFF position:
When ‘OFF’ the switch will allow the DC Charger to run normally as voltage sensitive. The DC charger will require a minimum voltage of 13.0 Volts from the main start battery in order to engage the DC Charger. When the main vehicle battery drops below 12.7 Volts (indicating the vehicle is no longer charging), then the DC charger will disconnect.
Unregulated solar input: The Anderson connector labelled ‘Unregulated solar input’ allows or the connection of an unregulated solar panel. In order to use this connection, the panel must not have a regulator fitted. The voltage input of the solar panel must be between 9-28 volts and must not exceed 420 watts.
Vehicle wiring loom: The Battery Hub includes a complete vehicle wiring loom. Please refer to the TUR-L instructions for fitting.
Mounting Tray: Included in the package is a complete mounting tray and stray for secure mounting of the Thumper Lithium Battery Hub.
Need more power?
What do you do if you need more power? Thumper now offer a simple solution of a Thumper Battery LINK HUB! The Link Hub is designed in two models in both 100 AH and 120 AH capacity, to include an option with and without sockets. The Link Hub simply 'BINDS' with the Master Hub to increase AH and discharge capacity to offer the ability to run larger discharge appliances for a longer duration.
The Bluetooth App will allow the option to reset the AH capacity to monitor both Hub's together, or continue to monitor separately. The App will allow the user to either run both Hub's in parallel with one another, equally sharing the discharge or charge load between the two, or, instead the user may keep the Link Hub as a reserve battery and activate it only when they wish to start using. All of this and more is available from the FREE Bluetooth App!

Common questions and answers:
1. Can I run my appliances and charge the battery at the same time?
Yes! Absolutely. This is the best way you can use the battery system. The battery is able to safely charge (via the vehicle, 240 volt battery charger, or solar), whilst running your 12 volt accessories.
2. How long will the 240 volt battery charger take to charge my power hub?
If the battery is completely discharged, then the battery charger (provided) can take up to 10 hours to completely recharge the battery hub. Keep in mind that the battery hub does not need to be flat
3. Can I add a DC Battery Charger to this pack?
Lithium batteries will charge best in the vehicle when coupled with a suitable DC Battery charger. Thumper do offer two model Battery Hubs with the DC charger fully fitted and hardwired to the unit; Redarc and Projecta.
If you own a DC Charger already, then it is no problem to use this to charge the Thumper power Hub, providing it has a Lithium setting (or an AGM setting that falls within an appropriate voltage range). Simply connect your existing DC charger to one of the Anderson connectors fitted on the Battery Hub.
4. Can I charge and discharge from any outlet socket in the Battery Hub?
The Thumper Lithium Battery Hub consists of multiple sockets. All sockets (excluding the USB socket), within the Battery Hub are wired bi-directional to allow you to charge or discharge from any connection.
The USB socket is purely an output and will not allow for any input charging.
5. Can I link another battery for increased capacity?
Yes! Thumper offer a battery hub that is designed for this sole purpose of linking the two hub's together. The linking hub is fitted with a 120 Amp Anderson connector and will allow you to parallel link the two Battery Hub's so to increase both the overall capacity as well as the BMS rating (2 x 120 battery hubs = 240 Amp BMS / 2880 watt capacity)
If you are not wanting to link to the Thumper Linking Hub, then the other option would be to link to a TL-120P model (via 120 Amp Anderson on the Hub to ring terminals on the battery). This would provide the same effect on the increase capacity.
6. What is the warranty on the Thumper Lithium Battery Hub?
The warranty on the Thumper Lithium Battery Hub & Projecta IDC25L is 5 years from date of purchase.
