Faster, Smarter and Safer 6-Volt and 12-Volt Charging

By combining conventional battery charging technology with state-of-the-art circuitry, the Schumacher SC-10030A SpeedCharge Battery Charger/Maintainer offers versatility, speed of charging and convenience rarely seen in a battery charger. The charger features an easy-to-use and monitor touchpad on which two output current rates are selectable: 2-amp and 12<>30-amp. The touchpad also allows for the selection of battery type being charged: 12-volt regular automotive, 12-volt deep-cycle, 12-volt AGM or gel cell and 6-volt regular batteries; and provides data percentages of a full charge that is stored. All these features and data are heightened by the prescence of a powerful microprocessor at the heart of the unit.

The microprocessor of the Schumacher SC-10030A SpeedCharge Automatic Charger and Maintainer 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 desulfation, bulk charging, absorption, 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 SC-10030A 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 and 12<>30-Amp Charging Rates

An additional key to the speed with which the Schumacher SC-10030A SpeedCharge Automatic Charger and Maintainer works is its 2 available charging rates: 2-amp and 12<>30-amp. By allowing users to choose the best rate for the right battery type and charging needed the SC-10030A is better able to supply exactly the right level of charge, at the right time in the charging cycle to get quick results and maintain connected batteries at theie proper levels. Details on the three available charging rates include:

  • 12<>30-amp Fast Charge – Self-adjusting, variable charge rates for everyday charging needs and maintaining your battery in peak condition. Charges and automatically desulfates and restores car, truck, RV, farm equipment, AGM, gel cell and deep-cycle batteries.
  • 2-amp Slow Charge – A gentle trickle charge for charging and maintaining small batteries; charges motorcycle, ATV, snowmobile and lawn tractor batteries.

Valuable Additional Features

In addition to serving as a battery charger the Schumacher SC-10030A also contains several automotive diagnostic tools that come in handy in any garage. These include: an AC powered battery jumpstarter, a built-in battery tester and an built-in alternator tester.

An AC Powered Jumpstarter

Your Schumacher SC-10030A battery charger can be used to jump start your vehicle using the built-in "engine start" feature if the battery is low. This feature is capable of delivering up to 100-amps of jumpstarting power via your household AC current.

A Built-In Battery Tester

Schumacher SC-10030A battery charger has a built-in battery tester that displays either an accurate battery voltage or an estimate of the battery’s relative charge based on the battery voltage and the Battery Council International scale.

Built-In Alternator Tester

Th built-in alternator tester displays either an accurate alternator voltage or an estimate of the alternator's relative output compared to normal alternators. The Alternator % values displayed should be taken as general reference, not precise diagnosis.

I had another electronic style charger, purchased a few years ago from Sam's Club. Not bad, just not durable and it gave up the ghost...

I was referred to Schumacher by some friends in the auto repair business and wanted a unit that was reliable and was versatile, charging different types and sizes of batteries. We have a vehicle and a motorcycle that doesn't get used regularaly and I needed to be able to top off various batteries.

1st impressions, this thing is HEAVY compared to other brands! Not a big surprise since I have to assume they use a more robust transformer than other brands.

On the flip side, the battery leads are lighter and smaller than I would have expected. They work great and since Schumacher has been doing this for quite a few decades, I'm sure they will work well for the long haul- I just expected larger gauge wires and larger clips. As a plus, the smaller clips actually are easier to connect to various batteries, especially if they are still installed (motorcycle).

Other surprise is this thing is loud, with a constant hum when plugged in. It is normal based on the transformer, but it is different than the cheaper chargers out there. This is not a bad thing, just a little different.

I have already used this charger on a truck battery and a couple smaller batteries with no problems. It works as advertised and quickly. I like the fact that it will automatically charge then shift to a float charge mode and includes a desulfide mode if needed. Since some of my stuff sits (bike and lawn mower) the desulfide function is great to recover a battery. Haven't tested the start function and likely won't but it's there if needed...

Overall, pleased and would buy again.

Have a diesel truck that is setting most all the time. Over a long period of time the alarm system and other gadgets drained the battery. Was probably this way for many weeks. Not good for a battery at all. This truck has a diesel that requires two batteries to start. After recharging the batteries many times with another non-automatic charger and a smaller version of this charger, they would not take a full charge and trip out the smaller charger/maintainer. This charger, Schumacher SC-10030A SpeedCharge Automatic Charger and Maintainer, has a de-sulfation mode for batteries that suffer this type of trauma. Over night, about 12-14 hours later the battery finally accepted a full charge. I verified this by using the same smaller maintenance/ maintainer battery charger that continually tripped out. Once I had a fully charged battery, I installed the smaller maintainer, and it turned green indicating a full charge and now maintains the batteries..

Two problems. 1) this charger in my opinion is too large to be a maintainer / conditioner. It does the job but has a fan that goes on and off. Probably uses too much electricity. 2) When ever the charger goes into maintain mode, it sets off my remote controlled alarm system on the truck. I had to put the truck alarm on valet to prevent this.

I purchased a DieHard 71227 (80amp start, 30/12/2 amp charge) to charge a 6v deep cycle RV battery (186 amp hr). My intention was not to charge a dead battery, but to charge my > 50% charged RV batteries individually to equalize them. The battery had about 65% in it according to the charger. After a few hours the charger hit 77% and shut off and will not turn back on.

I returned the DieHard 71227 and purchased the Schumacher SC-10030A. It has slighly better specs 100amp start, 12<>30,2amp charge. I began by topping off the battery that the DieHard died on. I then let the charger cool down for 30 minutes (fan blowing on it). Then I began charging the 2nd RV battery. It started at 60% and ran until it hit 74% (a couple hours). Same thing happened... charger shut off... will not turn back on. I discovered that Schumacher built both of these chargers... they look VERY similiar inside.

What I cannot believe is that Schumacher is not putting a thermal switch in these chargers to prevent a melt down. Also makes me wonder if the Starter Mode on these chargers will cause the same melt down. Starter Mode says it runs for 5 seconds and then cools down for 180 seconds... obviously they are using a timer and not a thermal switch. So I imagine if you use the Starter Mode a couple times you will probably have the same melt down issue.

So I have gone thru 2 chargers in less than 6 hours of charging. I think the 'old' manual Schumacher chargers are ok, but the new microprocessor chargers appear to be junk.

Schumacher SC-10030A Safety Hazard - Caution

This is suppose to be an automatic multi-stage battery charger.

When implemented correctly this is the best type of charger for your battery.

Unit I received would not charge a battery that read approximately 11.85 volts on a 500 CCA battery.
At 10amp I would need a 4.5 hour charge. 1-3 hours on this charger according to it's instructions.
(This is rough calculation, did not want to write all details here.)

First problem: Charger would charge battery for 10 mins.
(I know about surface charge and it is mentioned in the instruction manual, but this was not the problem.)

(Another automatic trickle charge that I own would charge this battery at 2 amps but this would have taken at least 10-12 hours to charge the battery.)
The "Battery-Minder" is more of a maintenance/desulphating charger. (Battery-Minder has made my batteries last years longer.)
I bought the SC-10030A to get the job done more quickly when needed.

I was't ready to send unit back as I still though I might have missed something.
So I though I would just use the charger in the 2 amp mode.

Second More serious problem.
I left the charge connected and set it up so that it would trickle charge the battery.
But when I came back in 15 minutes the SC-10030A was too hot to touch and smelled bad and it was continuing to get hotter.

Note: I am a retired electronics engineer.
