55 Amp charge is misleading - 36% duty cycle MAX

Date:January 20, 2014
"I just purchased this charger last week. Unfortunately, NOWHERE does it tell you on the box or ads or even in the manual that the 55 Amp charge rate actually has a MAX duty cycle of 36.8%. It lists this: "55 Amp intermittent 105 sec MAXIMUM ON, 180 sec MINIMUM OFF" on a sticker on the back of the unit itself. So charging at 55 amps for only a best-case scenario of 105 seconds of every 285 seconds, you're averaging ONLY 20.3 amps! My smaller and cheaper 25 amp Eliminater charger can beat that. Otherwise, this is a nice product - excellent quality, and useful IF you NEED the 150Amp #3 seconds every 4 minutes# boost - otherwise save some money and get the smaller 25 amp smart charger Eliminator."

2013 model is outstanding

Date:December 1, 2013
"I own a 30 yr old 2 amp trickle charger and 2 more modern 2 amp trickle chargers with automatic circuitry. I also bought a "genius" charger from Cdn Tire (the large one) last year. None of my chargers would boost my truck battery last week. The truck sits without much use and the voltage in the battery dropped to 1.9 volts! None of my chargers could even put a current into it because they need to sense at least 2 volts minimum to begin working.
This unit came up on sale and when I saw that this "automatic" wheeled charger had a manual mode, I took a chance. It is fantastic. I tried the jump start mode on my truck and, even though it did turn the engine, the battery was just too rundown to spin fast enough. I put the charger on at 55 amps for 2 hours and the volts came up to 12.6 but there still wasn't enough energy stored up yet.
The next day I put the charger on again and set it to 20 amps in automatic mode. About 4 hours later the display showed fully charged and, with the boost mode set for extra help, the engine fired up like she used to. This was all done outdoors in -10 to -14 degree weather and the cold didn't bother any aspect of this charger. Any past cold weather problems may have been an anomaly or a glitch that's now been corrected.
Sorry for the long post but, I'm really pleased with this unit, especially since I was skeptical when I bought it, and I want to share my experience.
Highly recommended!"

Fully automatic charger/starter/maintainer

Date:March 15, 2012
"This charger is actually made by Schumacher, and is their top-of-the-line automatic chargers the ELITE SERIES. This charger, unlike the Nascar Advantage 200A, also made by Schumacher, is manual", and there is a high chance of "cooking" your battery since no "Auto" feature. What good is a timer if your battery could had reached full charge, for example after 60 or 90 minutes, yet charger keeps charging till timer runs out at over 2 hours! Unless you can ckeck gravity level of your battery, voltage is never an accurate indication of battery charge.
On the other hand, 150A charger besides being fully automatic and will never over-charge, can check your battery level, check alternator, maintain (trickle), quick charge is much higher and therefore quicker than the 200A manual unit.
The 150A charger is loaded with very nice features which not only will prevent from damaging your battery, but also extend it's life.
And yes, it does have "Desulfication Mode". It's in the manual of the unit.
Not to mention it chargers all types of batteries, including Deep Cycle, AGM, Gel, Spiral, and regural Acid-Lead. The Nascar Advantage 200A can only charge Acid-Lead.
For some reason, mine is kept in garage and it works fine in very cold temperatures.
Do your homework and check the specs, and you'll see how much more superior the 150A is comparing to Nascar 200A.
What Schumacher does, when they sell charger to Canadian Tire, they paint them different, so instead looking very fancy, they have MotoMaster paint scheme.

You can't have it all.

Date:December 31, 2010
"I have to maintain six 12V batteries and one 6V. These types of wheeled chargers are suppose to be well featured. At this price it is disappointing to see that it does not charge 6V batteries like the similar nascar unit available here. My bad for the assumption, taking it back.
There simply is not a charger that is full featured with desulphation, altrenator tester, battery tester, auto/manual mode, 6/12V etc...
I just want to buy 1 charger."

Don't buy for Cold Weather

Date:December 14, 2009
"Just bought this today and it won't work at -20 C! If the unit is in the warm it works just fine but as soon as it cools down outside the electronic controls will not allow it to operate. Technical support was as helpful as they could be and suggested that if you need cold weather operation you need to get one that is not microprocessor controlled (ie does not have an automatic charge feature - so the larger wheeled NASCAR unit or the smaller non-wheeled ones at CTC)"
