DOES NOT CHARGE AT 8 AMPS TOP AMPERAGE CHARGE IS 6 AMPS AND ONLY WILL DO THIS WHEN THE BATTERY REACHES 11 VOLTS. AVERAGE IS ABOUT 3 AMPS ON AN ALMOST DEAD BATTERY. IT IS NOT A RAPID CHARGE AT ALL. BUT IT WILL CHARGE A BATTERY IN ABOUT 14 HOURS WHICH WILL SERVE A PURPOSE BUT WILL NOT HOLD THE CHARGE AT 12.66 VOLTS. IT HAS TO GO DOWN TO 11 VOLTS OR SO BEFORE IT BEGINS TO CHARGE AGAIN.

Good charger? Yes. Maintainer? No! Good little charger for the money, but not great as a maintainer, and Schumacher even says for “basic charging needs” and “built for charging”. Here’s why: It safely brings your battery up to full charge state using up to 8 amps of charging current, then automatically switches to charged mode and the green ” charged” led comes on. It then supplies a limited amount of current to keep it in a charged state, but should your battery need more than the max current it offers in the fully charged…

You’ll Have to be Jump Started! ALL AUTOMATIC SCHUMACHER CHARGERS DO NOT ” MAINTAIN “.ONCE THE BATTERY FULLY CHARGES, ” IT LOCKS IN TRICKLE MODE ” ,THEN SLOWLY GOES DEAD!EXAMPLE: LISTENING TO THE RADIO, OR JUST FORGET TO TURN THE KEY OFF.ONE DUMB ENGINEER THAT DOESN’T KNOW ABOUT VOLTAGE DROP AND BASIC TRANSISTOR AND SEMI- CONDUCTOR FUNCTION.INDUSTRIAL MAINTENANCE DEGREE
