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.
MY SUMMARY 1st:
I like this charger and think it does a good job for the PRICE (11-27-12). Gold box special was $25.25 + tax. (I would likely buy it at the regular price for $31.65)
It's basically semi-automatic. You do have to set the current otherwise it will default to 2A. When I 1st used the charger the voltage defaulted to 12V. There is a button to select 6V or 12V. You won't damage anything if you reverse the clips accidently (I tried it intentionally). Compact size and reasonable quality clamps (not brass or brass plated though).
It does not come with quick disconnect charge connector or maintainer cable to permanently install on your battery.
Quiet: Mine has no humming or buzzing as another has noted. It does have a small fan that does not turn off, but you can barely hear it..
This charger does what it is designed for. That is charge batteries big and small and top off or maintain batteries as needed.
This works well as an maintenance charger for all batteries to keep them fully charged when not in use. After charge is complete the current shuts off and charger goes into maintenance mode where it monitors battery voltage and starts charging again when the battery drops below a preset level. (should be about 12.75V)I did check the charger current and shutoff for maintenance mode. (See detail below)
The charger is relatively small, light weight and feels feels reasonably well built with medium weight plastic. The charger has a small cooling fan and does not get warm after charging at 6A. The battery clamps are not great but good enough.Read more ›
