If your battery is just at low charge (i.e. so low that it won't turn the engine over), this unit will work. However, if your battery is truly dead (completely sulphated, unable to hold a charge etc.), no charger will work.

It depends on the type of battery you have in your car - if you have a normal lead-acid battery (like an Eliminator, Motomaster 72 etc.) use the Conventional setting. If you have a sealed lead-acid battery, use the "Maintenance-free" setting.

Question

Good for Motorcycles??

can I put this on 2a as well as 10a and leave it on a motorcycle battery. Does it shut off when the battery is full and then turn on if it drops... I want to walk away from it and not have an overcharged battery if I forget about it

The 10A/2A automotic charger will cycle off once the battery has a full charge. If you wish to use this as a maintainer, use the charger in a trickle mode charge at 2Amps.

Set it at 12V. Without knowing the exact specifications of your battery, I'd suggest using the slower, but safer, 2A setting. 10A is fast but could boil the fluid if you don't keep a close eye on it while charging.

Question

My charger flashes red for about 9-10 seconds, then flashes green for about 1-2 seconds. Battery was hooked up for 9 hours.

I disconnected the charger and the car started up fine, but I am not sure if the battery is fully charged. Used 10 amp current setting and selector switch set to Conventional/Low-Maintenance.

The green light will start to flash on and off as the battery gets closer to fully charged. You'll notice that the longer it stays connected, the green light will stay on longer and the red light shorter until eventually the green light will stay on. (The charger is turning on in spurts to keep the battery from overcharging.)

Once you see the green light start to flash on and off, it will actually finish charger faster if you switch to the 2A setting at that point.

You probably have a conventional/flooded lead-acid battery so this charger would be fine. Use the 10A rate if you are in a rush otherwise I would use the 2A setting.

But if you have one of those AGM orbital or optima batteries, I'd get myself a newer-style battery charger - one with a microprocessor - that says it's made for AGM batteries.

That depends on battery size, battery condition, temperature, charge rate and a few other factors.

A typical car battery charged at 10A might take 6-8 hours.

The gauge will shoot over to the right at it's highest charge current. As the battery accepts a charge, the gauge will begin to slowly move back to the left. The closer to the left, the lower the current as the battery is almost fully charged.

As the battery gets closer to fully charged, I would mvoe the charge rate to 2A to allow the charger to finish faster and give a more thorough charge.

The Charged LEDs will indicate when charging is complete.
