NOCO Genius 12v 10 Amp Marine On-Board Battery Charger GEN1
Product Description

The NOCO Genius GEN1 charger is an 8 step, fully automatic switch-mode battery charger, which automatically determines the condition of your battery before beginning its charge cycle. It will only charge when the battery needs it, and will fully maintain your battery when it is in storage or between uses. All of the Genius line of battery chargers are programmed for optimal battery charging and maintenance, with proprietary Rapid Charging Technology(RCT). The smart microprocessor and advanced high frequency design will charge batteries twice as fast as a conventional transformer based marine charger, while always preventing overcharge. This assures you of maximum battery life and less downtime. Genius chargers also utilitize Variable Input Compensation, which means that your charger will work as it should, delivering its full, correct voltage and amperage, whether or not long extension cords or low AC power are used.

By on May 02, 2016, Ownership: Use regularly, Knowledge Level: Electricity doesn't scare me.. usually

Pros: looks nice, quiet, worked for 6 months well.

Cons: This product failed after 6 months use. When I found my warranty I realized I had voided it because I cut the plug off to hard wire into my application (not the cause of failure). I'm still giving it 2 stars because the application I had it in was demanded. It was mounted on the battery box of a semi-tractor. I use a generator when parked and have a refrigerator and lights, radio, etc... powered by 12V. I thought I had found the bulletproof solution to keep the batteries topped off when running the generator or plugged into shore power, but it quit after 6 months.

Other Thoughts: I may try another and mount in cab where there is additional suspension and weather protection, maybe it will last longer ? This time I will not cut the plug off the cord so I am not out $105 if it fails! ****Note From***** In application like this we generally recommend Power-Supplies/Converters similar to what you find in RV's. Demands like this can task a sealed unit as they are unable to disperse the heat from constant charging. Nor are they designed to be used while the batteries are in operation.
