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.

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.

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.

Yes you can but we recommend ideally that you charge each battery individually. First, if charging in parallel (all batteries connected together in 12V) you’d need a much more powerful charger to handle the total amp hour capacity of the 4 batteries combined. Second, when you charge batteries in a parallel, no individual battery will get its specific needs met – the charger will charge as if it’s simply one giant battery which may mean, for example, that one which was less discharged gets overcharged while another that was more discharged never gets fully charged.

Besides charging each battery independently, two other options include purchasing a 48V battery charger so you can charge all four batteries in series (I’m assuming this is a 48V golf cart) or purchasing a 4-bank battery charger that would charge each battery individually but at the same time.

Question

Does this charger have a desulfation mode?

I'm have a new Lithium-Iron battery in my trail bike that says I can use a standard lead acid battery charger but it must not have a desulfation mode that boosts output voltage.

If your battery/bike manufacturer says it’s okay to use a standard lead-acid battery charger, I guess you have to believe them. I assume it’s a 12V battery then? This model does not have a desulfation mode. The charge voltage is 14.4 to 14.8V depending on the setting you choose. However this is a traditional linear (transformer-type) charger. If I were you, I’d consider something a little more intelligent – a microprocessor controlled type charger (without desulfation of course). Consider perhaps model 11-1506, 11-1507 or 11-1517 instead.

You also want to consider the battery capacity (amp hour rating) as lower rated batteries must be charged with at a lower current. A general rule of thumb for lead-acid batteries is about C/10. For example, you’d want to try to stay below 1.4A on a 14Ah battery. But lithium-ion batteries may have a different requirement. We suggest you do a little bit of research by contacting the battery or bike manufacturer or going online. Lithium-ion batteries aren’t cheap – it be a shame to ruin it by over or undercharging it.
