This charger has it all with 6- and 12-Volt capabilities, 2- or 4-Amp charge rates.
The BikeMaster® Intelligent Charger/Maintainer is ideal for charging/maintaining 6- and 12-Volt lead acid batteries, including conventional acid batteries (Wet), factory-activated, maintenance-free batteries (FA), absorbed glass mat maintenance-free batteries (AGM) and gel batteries (Gel Electrolyte).
This fully automatic battery charger detects 6- or 12-Volt, reverse polarity, overcharge and short circuit protection in addition to testing if the battery is good or bad. It has easy-to-read LED lights that indicate power on, 6- or 12-Volt selection, 2-Amp or 4-Amp charge rates and the status of the battery charge.
This charger/maintainer comes with a five-year warranty.
- Color-coded alligator clip leads and color-coded quick disconnect battery terminals
- 6-Volt mode has a bulk charge rate of 2-Amps; 12-Volt mode has a selectable charge rate of 2-Amps and 4-Amps
- A float charge of 1.5-Amps is used for absorption: a constant high current for extended periods of time can damage a battery; to rectify this issue, constant 1.5-Amps low charging current is given until the battery is fully charged (13.6-Volts)
- The charger monitors the battery voltage: if a 12-Volt battery voltage falls below 12.8-Volts (6-Volt battery falls below 6.2-Volts) the charger automatically restarts the charging cycle; the maintenance charging cycle is repeated indefinitely, thus, allowing the charger to stay connected worry free
- Recovery mode is used to revive batteries that are not completely dead but have fallen below 8-Volts; the recovery mode charges at a constant 1.5-Amps; the recovery process automatically switches to the regular charging mode when the voltage reaches 10.5-Volts; the charger will then automatically switch from charge mode to maintenance mode when the battery is fully charged
- Sleek, durable composite housing for long service life
- Power on indicator: red LED light
- Battery voltage indicator: 6- or 12-Volt automatic selection; solid red LED light will indicate battery voltage, if the battery is bad the light will flash
- Reverse polarity indicator: red LED light will warn if the battery connections are reversed
- Charge current indicator: use the MODE button to select between 2-Amps or 4-Amps
- Charge indicator: red LED light indicates the battery is charging, green LED light indicates fully charged battery
