This automatic speed battery charger has a 10-amp fast charge self-adjustment feature which monitors battery condition and adjusts charge rate to prevent battery damage to your car, truck marine and farm equipment, gel cell, and deep-cycle batteries. The 2-amp slow charge helps in charging small batteries and maintaining large ones for motorcycles, snowmobiles, and lawn tractor batteries. It has an easy to read digital meter which displays battery charge status and test results. It weighs 6-lbs and has a retractable handle for easier portability. It is also provided with self-stored cables, system testing capabilities, and electronic push button controls. This item requires special handling for deliveries outside the contiguous US.

Fast, Automatic 12-Volt Battery Charging

By combining conventional battery charging technology with state-of-the-art circuitry, the Schumacher SSC-1000A Ship 'N' Shore SpeedCharge Charger offers greater versatility, speed of charging and convenience than ever before seen in a battery charger. The charger features an easy-to-use and monitor digital readout on which three output current rates are selectable: 2-amps, 6-amps and 10-amps. The readout also allows for the selection of battery type being charged: standard, AGM or gell cell; and provides data on based on quarter percentages of a full charge that is stored and voltage present at the poles of a charging battery. All these features and data are hightened by the prescence of a powerful microprocessor at the heart of the unit.

The microprocessor of the Schumacher SSC-1000A Ship 'N' Shore SpeedCharge Charger monitors the attached battery's voltage level from the moment it is connected, using this ever-changing data to improve the charging system's multi-stage charging cycle. Multi-stage charging allows a battery charger to automatically cycle, between a variety of charging phases including desulphation, bulk charging, absorbtion, monitoring, float mode and a minimal drip charge maintain mode when a connected battery again falls below a certain set level. The microprocessor collected data is especially important in this cycle in that with it the SSC-1000A can more accurately measure the charging needs of a connected battery, resulting in quicker charge times and a lessened chance of damage due to overcharging.

2-Amp, 6-Amp and 10-Amp Charging Rates

n additional key to the speed with which the Schumacher SSC-1000A Ship 'N' Shore SpeedCharge Charger works is its three available charging rates: 2-amp, 6-amp and 10-amp. By allowing users to choose the best rate for the right battery type and charging needed, the SSC-1000A is able to better supply exactly the right level of charge, at the right time in the charging cycle to get quick results and maintain connected batteries at their proper levels. Details on the three available charging rates include:

  • 10-amp Fast Charge – Charger monitors battery condition and adjusts charge rate to prevent battery damage; for car, truck, marine, RV, farm equipment, AGM, gel cell and deep-cycle batteries.
  • 6-amp Medium Charge – A self-adjusting charge rate for everyday charging needs and keeping your battery in peak condition.
  • 2-amp Slow Charge – A gentle trickle charge for charging and maintaining small batteries; charges motorcycle, ATV, snowmobile and lawn tractor batteries.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does this battery charger shut off after the battery is fully charged?

    No, it stops charging and goes into MAINTAIN mode, but it does not shut off. By the way, I wouldn't leave it on the battery in MAINTAIN for too long, like weeks on end. Maybe a day or two at most.

  • Does this jump start a dead car battery?

    It charges a weak battery. If the battery is, for example 50% charged and it only takes several minutes to bring it back to 100%, some cells of the battery are dead rendering it useless. Won't jump start a car, not it's purpose. There are chargers/ jump starters, but be prepared to spend more $. It will, however,serve as a maintainer should you plan to leave the car sitting several days. It's all in the instructions. Be safe, read the instructions. On rare occasions batteries get hot (to the touch) meaning they are going to explode. I always touch the battery after a half hour or so.

  • Will this charge rv deep cycle batteries

    Yes it will. It is a very "smart" charger. It has a micr-processor built in that constantly analyzes the state of charge and "ramps down" when the proper charge level is reached. Just make sure you select the right SIZE when you start. It's easy the choice is small, medium, or large. Small is like a small motorcycle, medium is like a large riding lawn mower, large is like most any car or boat.
