Microprocessor Controlled Battery Charger/Maintainer  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Schumacher's SSC-1000A is a state-of-the-art intelligent microprocessor controlled 10/6/2 Amp 12V battery charger/maintainer/tester. It's compact, lightweight, self-contained, nicely designed, works great, and is very reasonably priced! (I got mine for about $35)

A fellow ham characterized Schumacher as a leader in the field with products exceptionally well designed, and which flawlessly perform as they oversee and control the entire test, charge, and maintain process.

After researching Schumacher's products, I bought several. Two units for my use, with the other units for members of our radio group and DCS. All of us now have the need to charge recently donated 200+ Amp 12V vehicle batteries. Many of which will be used during Field Day, and all will be ready for Emergency Use at our assorted station locations.

Over the past several days, these units have already demonstrated their prowess at flawlessly handling assorted test, charging and maintain duties with a wide assortment of battery types, sizes and capacities.

Before now I never needed a device with the capability to fully charge and maintain 12V marine, automotive or deep cycle flooded, AGM, or sealed Gel batteries. I'm glad I hadn't bought any of the typical old style battery charger's. This IS the modern way battery charging should be!!

Check em out. You just might be pleasantly surprised.

Very 73,
