The Schumacher SC-1200A/CA SpeedCharge is a fully automatic battery charger that uses advanced technology to charge up to twice as fast as conventional chargers. Automatically adjusts the amperage rate to charge and maintain batteries efficiently. 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. Quickly charge and maintain conventional automotive batteries, deep-cycle, AGM, and gel cell batteries.
Multiple Charging Modes
Automatically adjusts the amperage rate to quickly charge all types and sizes of batteries. The charger monitors battery condition and adjusts charge rate downward to prevent battery damage for car, truck, marine, RV, and farm equipment batteries. Also adjusts automatically to Slow Charge, a trickle setting for charging and maintaining small batteries, such as those for motorcycles, ATVs, snowmobiles and lawn tractors.
Sturdy, Built-In Handle
The built-in, retractable 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-1200A/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-1200A/CA automatically switches from Continuous Charge to Float-Mode Monitoring, which allows the charger to maintain the battery when fully charged. The SC-1200A/CA resumes continuous charging when the battery becomes discharged.

Some people complained it will not charge a totaly dead battery.
This is safety feature so it will not turn on if nothing is hooked up it.
To charge a dead battery - you have to give it a little pre charge to get it to about 1 volt so the charger knows something is actually hooked up to to it.
To do this:
1. unplug charger from wall
2. hook battery to charger
3. press and hold "display" and "type" button at the same time
4. while holding those buttons - plug the charger into wall.
* this will bypass safety features and charge the battery even if it is dead (assuming the battery can be charged at all)
- do not run in this mode for more then 5 minutes or you can damage unit and battery.
- this will get the battery enough of a charge so that the charger can detect a battery is hooked up to it (1 volt) .
5. unplug charger from wall.
6. wait 30 seconds and plug in charger into the wall. This will put it back into 'regular' mode and start charging your batter properly
Then the vehicle set idle in a family member's driveway for about 6 months.
(because they neglected to start and run the vehicle every week or two, the battery had fully drained)
Went to try and turn it over and nothing!
No dash lights, no dome lights, nothing.
I initially tried to charge this dead battery with an old style charger (one that weighs like 10 lbs+), a vector brand.
Set the charger to the 8amp charge setting.
After a hour or two there was no noticeable change in the battery.
When vehicle's battery cables were reconnected it still could not even begin to turn over the vehicle.
I had my doubts that something so lightweight like this schumacher 1200 could do better than an old school battery charger.
(I know that in theory, these newer tech chargers should be able to charge a battery more accurately and efficiently due to the
solid state circuitry they utilize vs the old style chargers).
So I went ahead and hooked up this Schumacher 1200 and toggled it through the various modes.
I finally set it to the desulfation mode. I heard the cooling fan kick on low and then high.
According to the digital display it was cycling between 12 to 16 volts. I let it run for about 3-4 hours.
I removed the schumacher 1200 and hooked up the vehicles battery cables again.
The vehicle easily turned over, just like someone had installed a new, charged battery into it.
This was rather impressive because the manual stated that the desulfation mode would toggle to the regular charge mode after desulfation was finished. Then when the battery was fully charged the charger's LED would go green.Read more ›
The microprocessor controlled charger constantly monitors the state of charge and when the battery is fully charged it goes into a "maintain: float mode where it sends short pulses of voltage into the battery to keep it at 100%. It will inform you if the battery needs to be desulfated, which can happen if a battery has been discharged several times or deeply discharged, and automatically goes into a "desulfation mode" to correct this. It monitors the temperature of the battery to keep it from becoming too hot, and can handle any kind of battery, from the old lead acid batteries to the new AGM, or Absorbed Glass Mat batteries.
These chargers are exceptionally light and well built, and are backed by an exceptional warranty. And Im sure if you were to run into a problem with one, it will be taken care of with the 5 year warranty. No need to send them both back for a refund. Dont let one bad review turn you away from one of the biggest names in chargers. Ill probably be buying some more.
