Product Description

The Powersonic PSC-12800A-C is charger for sealed lead acid type batteries. This Automatic dual rate charger senses battery requirements and automatically switches from the fast charge to float mode, or vice versa. LED's provide visual indication of the charging mode. Automatic chargers combine the advantages of float and cycle chargers; recharge time is short yet batteries are safe from being overcharged. This charger is ideal for cyclic applications where recharge time is critical and the battery may be left on charge indefinitely. As a result charging is fool-proof. Meant for use with 4 Amp to 12 Amp rechargeable batteries.

I ordered one from Ace Scrape Metal (?) on the 21st of June. It arrived on June 29th--a reasonable amount of time, considering it took them a couple of days to ship it. The photo is not correct, as the model has 2 LEDs at the bottom of the charger. I do like one thing about it especially well. The leads have terminal ends that are held in place with bolts. This makes it nice for two reasons: First, you can take them off for storage, travel, etc. Second, if you want to attach Power Poles, you don't have to cut the original leads. You can simply fasten the end terminals to the leads, and then use the Power Poles directly to the battery. I don't like having alligator clips on blade terminals of batteries. There is too much chance they can slip. I solved this problem for the time being, by using electrical tape to keep the leads in place, and put my Power Pole connection (to my radio) between the terminals. That way, if they do slip, there won't be a short circuit. I will make separate charging leads with Power Poles and spade terminals. I like the PSC-12800A-C, as the price is right. Although my AGM SLA battery is 9 amp hours, the charger actually only goes from 4-8 amp hours--not the 4-12 as the ad states. However, I called Power-Sonic and a tech advised me that it was so close that it would not harm my battery--it would just take longer to charge. The next size up had prices ranging from $75-90. That is a lot more to get one more needed amp hour. I like the $25 much better. So, the ad has the wrong picture and the wrong amp rating. Actually, my Power-Sonic battery I bought had a pic of a different model, and that was from a different company. Summarizing it--the charger is an intelligent charger, is compact, priced right and I'm glad I bought it.

This is an excellent charger for gel cells <8 AH. I thought of building my own; for slightly less than $25 (incl shipping), it is not worth the trouble. I was concerned that Amazon delivery estimate was 3 weeks (supposedly because of a hazardous material issue) but it only took 5 days. The charger worked perfectly to rescue a 5 AH battery that was completely discharged so I saved the purchase of a replacement battery and have a charger for future use. I like Power-Sonic batteries because there is technical support available, No so with the many other generic batteries on Amazon.

I use this charger for "overnight" charging of various PowerSonic sealed lead acid batteries (4-10AH). It seems to do the job. I bought it because it was small and easily carried in a travel kit. The red and green status lights are appreciated. So far, no problems. Incidentally, this model does not have a DC pigtail, you have to furnish that. No problem for me as I made up a short pigtail with Anderson PowerPole connectors to fit my specific needs.
