Auto Charge 1000, 12V
Cat. No. 091-215-12-xxx
Weight 16 lbs

Model # 091-215-12

The Auto Charge 1000 is a high output automatic battery charger. Unique electronic sensing circuits sense the true battery voltage while eliminating the need for external sense wires. Charging is completely automatic. The maximum output of the charger is 15 amperes. When the battery is fully charged, all charging stops. There is no overcharging and no water boil off. A common problem with electrical systems is the loading on the battery caused by rechargeable hand lights, portable radios and other loads. The Auto Charge 1000 handles these loads with a built-in “BATTERY SAVER”. Auxiliary electrical loads are connected to the Battery Saver output. During normal vehicle operation these auxiliary loads are connected to the battery. When the vehicle is plugged in to A.C. power, the auxiliary loads are automatically removed from the battery and powered from the "BATTERY SAVER" circuit. A maximum of 3 amperes is available from the "BATTERY SAVER". An automatic overload protector limits the 3 ampere output. A yellow overload indicator is illuminated whenever the "BATTERY SAVER" output limit is exceeded. The Auto Charge 1000 indicator may be mounted remotely from the charger assembly. Connected by 3 wires to the charger, the indicator contains a bar graph display. The display indicates the “state of charge” and the general condition of the battery. An old or defective battery is displayed as a low reading which remains low after an extended charging period. A discharged battery also is indicated by a low reading. Precise indications of battery condition appear, independent of the distance between the charger and the display.    
  • 18A total: 15A battery charger, 3A battery saver
  • Automatic operation regulates output to a single  battery bank
  • A patented built-in sense circuit checks battery voltage 120 times per second to compensate for voltage drop in charging wires providing quick re-charge, with no overcharge
  • Separate "Battery Saver" output eliminates drain on vehicle battery when in station and automatically disconnects auxiliary vehicle loads from battery when charger is energized: Ideal for charging hand lights and portable radios 3A output with automatic overload current limit Not recommended for powering highly sensitiveelectronic loads
  • Front panel indicators: AC power applied, Battery Saver circuit overload
  • Designed for rigors of emergency vehicle use; heavy duty aluminum case
  • 3 year warranty
