CHARGE IT! 4500 Series Battery Charge
Use the 4512 to charge everything in your garage--from car and truck batteries to motorcycle and jet ski batteries
CHARGE IT! 4500 Series Battery Charge
The 4512 features smart clamp technology that sends power only when a proper battery connection has been made
Charge Batteries for Cars, SUVs, Jet Skis, and More

Using the 4512, you can charge virtually every vehicle battery in your garage--from car, truck, and SUV batteries to motorcycle and jet ski batteries. This makes the device extremely versatile for home use. The 4512 offers multiple charge rates and is compatible with conventional lead-acid car batteries, AGM batteries, gel cell batteries, spiral wound batteries, deep cycle batteries, and marine batteries.

Automatic, Multi-State Charging Process

The 4512 uses a proprietary, multi-stage charging algorithm to optimally charge and maintain your vehicle batteries. First the battery is brought automatically to a full charge. Then the charger enters a maintenance mode, keeping the battery in an optimal state until it is needed. Unlike other battery chargers, the 4512 has an override features that enables it to charge batteries that have been deeply drained--for instance, if you left on your car lights. The device is fully automatic--just indicate the battery type and your desired charge rate, and it does the rest.

Monitor the Battery with Ease

A seven-segment digital display on the 4512 allows you to easily monitor the battery-charging process. You can set the display to show either the battery voltage or the state of the charge.

Safety Features to Protect You and Your Battery

The 4512 comes equipped with numerous features to keep you and your battery safe during the charging process. Reverse polarity protection guards against reverse connections, while battery fault protection prevents the device from excessively charging compromised batteries. Smart clamp technology sends power to the output leads only when a proper battery connection has been made. The charger also includes short circuit protection to avoid shorted connections.

The 4512 is backed by a one-year limited warranty.

No, not lazy, but I do not want to have to stop the process of starting the engine by having to read and reread instructions that could be on one sheet.

Style Name: 12V (12/6/2)Amp Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is strictly a battery charger, so if you want a jump starter, this is a product to consider - Clore JNC300XL 'Jump-N-Carry' 900 Peak Amp Ultraportable 12-Volt Jump Starter with Light. I own this jump starter and it has saved me a couple of times already. With that said, this is a very versatile battery charger for several types of batteries.

There are three battery types and amperage settings from which you can choose: Standard, GSM and Gel batteries. Charge rate selectable: 2,4 and 6 Amperes. You can monitor the battery voltage or percent charged via a 3 digit display. It has reverse polarity detection.

There is no on-off switch on this charger and it really isn't very necessary either. You are supposed to connect the charger leads to the battery before plugging it into your AC power. There is a Go button you must press to begin the charging process. But first you should set the battery type and charge rate before you press the Go button.

Even if you press the Go button, it might not actually start charging the battery. I had two GSM batteries I pulled out of a UPS battery backup unit and they were both depleted to almost zero volts. On one battery, the charger did nothing after I pressed the Go button. On the other battery, the charge light came on but after one or two seconds, the charge light turned off. So this charger won't even try to trickle charge or bring a relatively dead battery back to life. I connected the batteries to a solar charger to bring them slowly up to the point where this charger would finish the job.

Style Name: 12V (12/6/2)Amp Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The best laid plans often go astray regardless of how well we think we plan. Batteries just go bad no matter how we plan. The Clore 4512 comes forth and helps reduce the need for anger and frustration when that battery just will not turn the engine over so we can get on with our objectives.

I am an instruction reader and thank goodness I do. In the case of Clore I had to read and reread just to be sure I was doing the setup and application properly. After my education I went to the garage and attacked my battery-dead lawnmower with Clore and in a few minutes it was off to the cutting of the grass. I did not test it in the SUV but I feel comfortable in attaching it to that battery and charging it when (not if) the time comes.

I only gave this unit a 4 star and not 5 for the simple reason that a 'quick connect' instruction sheet was not provided for the user. For me, batteries are one of those must have items and if the battery is worth its cost it will not need to be charged except once a year (such as most lawn mowers while waiting for spring to come) or less. I keep my go to tools in one spot so that when that infrequent time arrives that just perfect tool is handy and I do not have to begin my scavenger hunt for it. The Clore sits there just waiting but should I need it I will have to reread the instructions to be sure I do it correctly instead of having a simple one sheet laminated sheet for a quick reference. No, not lazy, but I do not want to have to stop the process of starting the engine by having to read and reread instructions that could be on one sheet. To correct that missing element item I will make my own and have it handy for that infrequent time when it comes.

Overall, this is a handy and useful battery charger and I highly recommend it even with my quirky idea.

Style Name: 12V (20/10/2)Amp Verified Purchase
Seems like such a great deal, doesn't it? A fast, lightweight, electronic charger for all battery types, at a low price.

Sadly, the manufacturer seems to be having major quality-control issues. These chargers don't charge.

I tried three of them: Two that I bought initially, and one that I received in exchange.

The first one was DOA. I returned it for an exchange.

The second one worked the first time I used it. The second time, I plugged it in and the readout said '0'. I searched he manual, found nothing, called Clore technical support. The tech support guy said the readout meant the charger was dead, and I should return it. This surprised me, as I'd expected him just to tell me how to reset it or something. I returned it for a refund.

The third charger, which I received in exchange for the first one, worked once, maybe twice. Then a couple days ago I pulled it out and wham, '0'. I'm returning it, too. It's a good thing I kept my 20-year-old transformer charger for backup.

I tried these chargers on wet and AGM batteries, ranging in size from 33aH to 200aH, and in states of charge from 'just needs topping off' to 'dead as doornail'. The darn things just don't work.

I have now bought a NOCO GEN4, and hope to post a review of it in a few months. Wish me luck.

Style Name: 12V (12/6/2)Amp Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This Smart Charger worked great & was relatively quick when I used it to charge a car battery.
It's compact size would make it perfect to stow in the trunk so it would be handy if I needed it away from home. But what are the odds of me needing it only when I'm right next to an electrical outlet? The charger only works with electricity. There's no option to run it with batteries.
The other issue is that there is no "off" switch. If you don't unplug it when the charge is complete, the fan continues to run. I worry that the fan could overheat & cause a fire if left unattended. I don't plan to leave it unattended, but an "off" switch or timer seems like a no-brainer to me.
