    This one don't use a big transformer as it's
    a switching type dc converter.

    Transformer-types is helpful to filter out
    large spikes on the power line.
    But as charging a battery is not sensitive to noise on the ac line, switching type is OK.

    It have a small fan, so you could put it in crampt location as long you don't block the side vents.

    The clips are pretty heavyduty and can probably handle 50amp,
    but the charger can not output more than 10Amps anyway.

    It's automatic and will not overcharge your 12v battery.

    Might be OK for batteries not installed in a newer car, but I briefly used this in 6A mode to charge a flooded cell car battery and the voltage climbed to above 16V (verified by a multi-meter) - so I stopped using it. The repair manual for my car says charge voltage should not exceed 14.8V, so I was concerned with damage to the car's electronics.

    Looking at reviews on other sites after the fact showed several people noting the same issue.

    Have purchased another charger since and it never goes above 14.8V and charges the battery fine...

    Comments about Schumacher 2/6/10 Amp 12-Volt Ship 'N Shore Automatic Battery Charger:

    My previous chargers were the type that simply charge the battery until you turn them off. They will happily ruin a battery if you let them. This one monitors the battery through the charge process, changing modes when necessary.

    It has settings for different battery sizes, Everything from small UPS backup batteries, up to big truck batteries. Deep Cycle, AGM, & GelCell are chargeable.

    Desulfate mode will auto-activate on weak batteries. It will try to shock loose the sulfate buildup on the lead plates. It did seem to restore some of my old batteries. I have some that would not charge above 11v. Now they can be charged to 12.5v+

    As to the charging voltage going above 12volts (up to 16v), READ THE MANUAL! It's supposed to do that. Pulsed charging functions differently than your charger from 1974.

    The only thing I don't care for is the fan. Small fans tend to be 'buzzy'. A larger size fan could spin slower (thus quieter)to create the same windflow.

      Too Smart for My Battery

            Comments about Schumacher 2/6/10 Amp 12-Volt Ship 'N Shore Automatic Battery Charger:

            Left on a reading light in the car, it drained the one year old battery all the way down. This charger wouldn't charge it. Manual's fine print says red light not on, possible cause "The battery is less than one volt." Solution "Replace the battery or try using a manual charger to bring above one volt". So my "smart" charger told me to go out and buy a manual charger.

                      Great for emergency use, in the garage, when your battery charge drops. Will start vehicle in a few hours of charging, in subfreezing temps.

                                  It is not a portable starter. Those are called a portable jump pack. This is a battery charger only in either 2, 6, or 10 amp output and depending on the battery size and discharge amount, it could take an average of 10-12 hours to recharge a battery. For it to recharge a battery it needs plugged in to a 120 volt AC current outlet.

                                  I'm happy to help, Shelli! This Schumacher 10/6/2 Amp Ship 'N Shore Automatic Battery Charger is considered "portable" in that it has a handle and is lightweight. This charger does require that it be plugged into an outlet to provide power, it does not include its own battery to jump start the vehicle. The product type you might be looking for would be a jump starter or jumper.

                                  The batteries in kids atv's are smaller and you would probably want to use the 2 amp setting.

                                I just bought one and would like to know when the battery is charged? Is the indicator will move from connected to charging then to charged? is the lighted number indicator will change from 0 to 100? Thanks.

                                  The charger will do as advised above. Even if you see 100 in the display, leave it hooked up for @15 minutes longer and the green charged light will come on.

                                  Hi acegolfer58! I'm glad to assist. Once the battery is fully charged the Green Charged light will come on, and the LED will read 100.

                                Someone asked if it will charge a battery that dies in a parking lot and you didn't answer the question at all. You only provided information about the item, not the answer to the question. I, too, am wondering if it will charge a battery that dies in a parking lot.... My car battery has been going dead and I have to get boosted everytime I start my car so I was wondering if I could buy this product for the same purpose. That way I can start my car myself with no help.

                                  This is a battery charger and not a jump start pack. A jump start pack is what you need for your above purpose and does not need to be plugged in to use but they do need to be charged or recharged. A jump pack is nothing more than a battery in a convenient case that works no differently than getting a jump start from someone elses vehicle. A jump start pack will come with a separate small charger, some have them built in, and it is plugged into household 120 volt AC outlet. Most manufacturers advise to charge the pack monthly for its longer battery life and better jump starting.
