Amazon.com Product Description
The Schumacher SSC-1000A Ship ‘N’ Shore SpeedCharge Charger is a versitile, fast and efficient 12-volt battery charger/maintainer suitable for use with a variety of lead-acid battery types used in everything from tractors, motorcycles, jetskiis and snowmobiles, to those found in cars, trucks and SUVs. It features fully automatic microprocessor control; automatic multi-stage charging allowing for ease of use; three charge rates: 2-amp, 6-amp and 10-amp; and the ability to choose the type of battery being charged. Addtiional features include a built-in voltage tester, a desulphation mode, a retractable handle and clamp/cable stowage compartment.
Fast, Automatic 12-Volt Battery Charging
By combining conventional battery charging technology with state-of-the-art circuitry, the Schumacher SSC-1000A Ship ‘N’ Shore SpeedCharge Charger offers greater versatility, speed of charging and convenience than ever before seen in a battery charger. The charger features an easy-to-use and monitor digital readout on which three output current rates are selectable: 2-amps, 6-amps and 10-amps. The readout also allows for the selection of battery type being charged: standard, AGM or gell cell; and provides data on based on quarter percentages of a full charge that is stored and voltage present at the poles of a charging battery. All these features and data are hightened by the prescence of a powerful microprocessor at the heart of the unit.
The microprocessor of the Schumacher SSC-1000A Ship ‘N’ Shore SpeedCharge Charger 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 desulphation, bulk charging, absorbtion, 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 SSC-1000A 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, 6-Amp and 10-Amp Charging Rates
An additional key to the speed with which the Schumacher SSC-1000A Ship ‘N’ Shore SpeedCharge Charger works is its three available charging rates: 2-amp, 6-amp and 10-amp. By allowing users to choose the best rate for the right battery type and charging needed, the SSC-1000A is able to better supply exactly the right level of charge, at the right time in the charging cycle to get quick results and maintain connected batteries at their proper levels. Details on the three available charging rates include:
- 10-amp Fast Charge – Charger monitors battery condition and adjusts charge rate to prevent battery damage; for car, truck, marine, RV, farm equipment, AGM, gel cell and deep-cycle batteries.
- 6-amp Medium Charge – A self-adjusting charge rate for everyday charging needs and keeping your battery in peak condition.
