The first one worked so well that I purchased a second one as I have several batteries to charge and maintain. I like the 2-4-6 amp settings. I've found that the less amps you can use is the best for extending the life of your batteries. The 6v setting was a must because I needed to charge my 8v golf cart batteries (separately) to a level where the built in charger would work. I'm completely satisfied with the chargers features and performance.

This is a great product. Does what it is advertised to do. Actually, I looked for this model thru the Schumacher sight but out it on line. I checked with Amazon and both were just too high. Then checked thru google, they listed Walmart. Their price was excellent. Like...$30.00 then tax of course. I use it for charging the battery on travel trailer, we have 2 riding mowers that I use for trickle charging. Also use it for our truck to keep it current during the cold winter months. It just does the job. It's a popular piece of equipment, you may call ahead at your local Walmart first.

This product will charge 6 volt or 12 volt batteries. I have a Deep Cell Marine Battery that cranks my Mercury outboard motor, as well as runs the electric trolling motor and powers the fish-finder and night running lights. A lot of electrical demand. When I put the boat trailer in the garage after a full day of use, this little inexpensive charger not only fully charges the battery overnight but maintains it ready for the next outing.

Does this need to be plugged in to work or can I walk upto a car on the side of the road and give it a jump?

  • A. Yes, it needs to be plugged in to convert 120 volt AC to 6 or 12 volt DC (as needed).

  • A. Needs 115-125 VAC to power it. But that aside, it's not intended for jump starting. It would have to be connected for maybe 15 min to a half hour to bring the dead battery up sufficiently to allow a brief crank.

  • A. Yes, if they are not TOO large (too high a CCA or Ah rating, meaning pretty big batteries)...it'd just take longer as the Schumacher SC-600A charger only charges at a MAX of 6A, so that means -- using the ideal charging rate rule of 1/10 a battery's Ah rating -- it'll IDEALLY charge a 60Ah battery, or, a 20Ah battery (or smaller, since it also charges at 2A or 4A) at an ideal/close-to-ideal rate and a 30Ah battery at the the ideal rate (4A is close) or twice the ideal rate (6A) which would be the MAX rate for a 30Ah battery. I know, it's confusing. I just stated some "Ah ranges" of what it would work with as I have no idea what YOUR boat battery is rated at...you need to first know your battery's Ah rating (if it's a deep-cycle battery it's rated in Ah) or if it's a starting battery, it's rated in CCA (which is not convertible to an Ah figure unfortunately -- but an AVERAGE car battery is about 40Ah). Whatever, you need to read your battery's label. If it's a true deep-cycle, it will be rated in Ah. Divide that by 10 to get your IDEAL charging rate (safe and gently charge the battery). TWICE that is the MAX amps you want to go. For example, a 40Ah battery should be charged IDEALLY at a 4A rate, 8A max. So ideally, you'd get a charger that'd charge at 4A minimum, 8A max. It's likely though that you probably can't get a charger to meet those specs EXACTLY, so jsut get one as close to that as possible. Most smart-chargers have 3 amp levels of charging so you can find one that's close. Whatever, do not get a charger that charges MORE than twice the ideal rate...it will shorten the battery's life down the road. Protect your (battery) investment! Good luck...

    Was this answer helpful?
  • A. Do you mean 28Ah battery (a deep-cycle rating)? Or do you mean 28CCA (a starting/car battery rating)? They are 2 different animals. If you mean 28Ah, then yes, the Schumacher is probably IDEAL as it will charge it at 2A, 4A or 6A, the max amps (6) being twice the battery's ideal 1/10Ah charging rate (which would be 3A) and no more than twice the ideal rate. The IDEAL rate would be (more precisely) 2.8A, so charging it at 2A or 4A would be fine, as would the 6A maximum. I don't know how many Ah a car/starting battery has (you can't convert CCA to Ah or vice-versa, they are two different things), but I'd have to say that ALSO YES, this 2/4/6 Schumacher SC-600A would be fine for a smaller 28CCA starting battery, for car batteries or MC/scooter batteries or even for your average larger car starting batteries. Sorry for the delay in answering, but I just saw all these questions today (after I did a review on this item today as Walmart.com asked me to do) and have already answered a bunch of them, although belatedly. Sorry...

  • A. This charger will charge a 6 volt mower battery. However, once you allow a lead acid battery (car type) or your mower battery to discharge completely (dead) it will no longer hold a charge. This charger, when left connected to the mower battery will keep it charged when your mower is not used frequently enough to keep it charged.
