The Schumacher SC-600A-CA SpeedCharge is a fully automatic battery charger that uses advanced technology to charge up to twice as fast as conventional chargers. It automatically adjusts charging modes to efficiently charge and maintain connected batteries. The 50-amp clamps are compatible with both top and side-mounted battery posts. Its easy-to-read LED indicators show battery charge status at a glance. This unit is also energy efficient.
Multiple Charging Modes
Microprocessor-controlled to automatically adjust amperage rate. In 6-amp Fast Charge mode, the charger monitors battery condition and adjusts charge rate downward to prevent battery damage for car, small truck, motorcycle, and lawn tractor lead-acid and AGM battery types. The 3-amp Medium Charge is a self-adjusting charge rate that's ideal for everyday charging needs and for keeping your battery in peak condition.
Sturdy, Built-In Handle
The built-in handle serves as convenient cord wrap for the 50-amp clamps and power cord, in addition to providing easy portability.
Microprocessor Controlled Technology with multi-stage charging lets the Schumacher SC-600A-CA deliver added precision, safety, and battery life. This technology lets you charge your motorcycle, car, or utility vehicle batteries up to 2x faster than using conventional chargers.
Fully Automatic Operation
The SC-600A-CA automatically switches from Continuous Charge to Float-Mode Monitoring, which allows the charger to maintain the battery when fully charged. The SC-600A-CA resumes continuous charging when the battery becomes discharged.

I am using it exclusive for my 2 cars in the winter. Went on vacation and returned 6 days later to find the car wouldn't start when the trunk lid (truck light) was left open. With regular below 32 degree weather in the winter in Wash DC, bought this to maintain the 2 car batteries. After jump starting my wife's car, decided to buy this to charge the battery and monitor battery condition (can't leave her stranded or home alone with a dead car battery).
Instructions were simple, but use caution anyway. Charger had approx 6 feet alligator clip cables to connect to battery and keep away from battery (acids, fumes, etc.). With negative-grounded car, attach red clip to positive battery terminal, then black clip to ground (charger must be unplugged from AC). Then plug into AC. Charger has "connection" indicator tyo show a battery is recognized. Then select 6V/12V, then select charge rate (2A or more). When charging, has "charge" indicator light and 3 lights (25%, 50%, 75%) to show progress. When fully charged, 3 progress lights go off and green "charged" indicator lights up and it goes into maitenance mode. Unplug the charger, then disconnect the 2 clips from the battery.
The unit has a five (5) year warranty; very few electrical/electronic devices now have a warranty beyond 1 year. Even the big appliances like washers, dryers, dish washers now come with just 1 year -- the manufacturer effectively increased the price by 10% which is about the repair rate for the 3rd to 5th years.
If you want to charge a battery that is at a very low voltage, as low as 0V, all you have to do is get another battery that DOES have a charge, get some jumper cables, and connect the Positive to positive and negative to negative. Then hook up the charger to the dead battery (positive to positive, negative to negative) and charge at the lowest rate for about 6 hours+. Periodically, (if in a bit of a hurry) stop charging, and disconnect the good battery and check the voltage of the battery to be charged. Once the voltage of the battery to be charged gets to about 10v, you'll no longer need to keep the "good" battery hooked up and you can continue to charge the discharged battery from now on.
Why does this work? It works because by hooking up a working battery to the discharged battery and then charging with the charger, the charger detects the good battery voltage and so will allow to charge. Only advice I have is during this setup, make sure the discharged battery, while it's charging does not "bulge" or do any other odd behavior. I've charged over 30 batteries like this and only one has started to "bulge" while charging and that was probably a bad battery anyway (shorted internally).
