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.

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.

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.

Suitable For 12 V AGM Battery?

I have a AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) 12V powersport battery, on my bench and indoor stored. Is this charger suitable for this type of battery?
If so., would I set on the 12V and 2A setting, for
maintaining over the winter?

Thank You

AGM batteries are quite delicate - you can easily damage them with the wrong type of charger. This charger is meant for conventional "wet" batteries. The newer style "intelligent" chargers can do all battery types because they are digitally controlled.

They're entire Eliminator line is "intelligent" and can be used with AGM batteries. They also have a really good model from CTEK.

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.

You should definitely maintain your battery through the off-season but I wouldn't recommend leaving it permanently hooked up - not to this kind of charger. It does shut off when the battery is fully charged and then only turns back on when the voltage drops below a certain level but, still, it's not really intented for "maintaining" a battery - it's better suited to charging a battery. You can still use it to keep your battery in top shape over the winter but I would recommend doing so by connecting it every 2-3 weeks and letting it complete its charge (which should take just minutes).

For the purpose of maintaining a battery over the off-season, you should look at an intelligent/high frequency/3-stage charger (they go by many different names). Essentially, these have a microprocessor in them that controls the charge cycle. Once the battery is charged, they go into float mode or maintenance mode - that's what you want. They are perfect for leaving connected to a battery all the time because they only deliver a small amount of voltage; just enough to keep the battery fully topped up without the risk of overcharging or damaging the battery.
