    Default Looking for an automatic battery charger for truck batteries

    I've got a Shumacher 10030A which seems to work fine. But I need another charger for another site. Primary use will be truck, tractor, and car batteries.
    Any recommendations? Other than just by a duplicate?

    Default Looking for an automatic battery charger for truck batteries

    Iíve been looking for a charger that will charge a battery from completely dead. A lot of the newer smart chargers wonít do that. Itís frustrating. Iíd look for one that can.

    I think the old style chargers will still charge a completely dead battery. Smart chargers have to have some voltage in the battery for them to kick off the charge cycle.
    I have 3 of the Schumacher chargers, one for my boats deep cycle batteries, another smart charger and a cheap one that just puts out a charge voltage when you hook it up. I use this one for my completely dead batteries.

    I have half a dozen Deltran trickle chargers and one big 'ol Schumacher charger. The 'Schu' is my go to if the battery is really dead.

    After using the smart chargers, I would not want the old charger ever again.
    I have seen batteries ruined by reversing the connections accidentally.

    I still have the old chargers, they are used to clean rusty steel.
    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    Deltran is unsurpassed in quality and have anything you want. The slower a battery is recharged the better. I have charged dead batteries several times with 1.5 amp Deltran Battery Tenders,just take's time.

    After having the new smart charger tell me 3 batteries were dead and then refusing to charge them I took it to good will! The old reliable trickle charge has kept those supposedly dead batteries alive now for 5 years and I still let them go completely dead every winter. The other thing I noticed is that my charge lasts longer with the old charger.
