The XC103 has been used twice: The first time it was used to peak the charge on a 12V battery on a workbench in the garage. The second time it was used to peak a 90% charge on a double 12V battery setup on my RV in the back yard. It seemed to charge just fine but I found the led lights for the various control functions are totally invisible in outside daylight. They were not visible even when shading the control panel from direct sunlight with my hand, so I couldn't tell if I had the proper battery setting. I decided to wait until dusk before initiating the charge. The lights were then visible. I was a bit surprised that it took several hours to peak the charge to FULL from 90%. I would be happier with this charger if I could see how many amps were being put into the battery, but it only shows volts.

This is a very simple device to use, the lights are bright enough to see in sunlight. When the battery was fully charged it automatically switched to maintain mode (as its supposed to). Highly recommend it.

I use this daily to keep my collector car charged and ready. I've used it to recharge dead batteries and float charge the collector car and it performes as expected.

This charger works very well. I have used it to charge everything from the tiny 6v AGM in a cordless spotlight all the way up to a pair of group 31 (semi/farm tractor) batteries in parallel. Here are my only issues with it: It is SCR based, not switched-mode based, so it can't be used as a 12v power supply/converter. (many of the largest forklift chargers are SCR based) The large transformer has a fairly loud hum to it. The voltage set points are too high for temperatures above freezing (32°F/0°C), no big deal here, just only use it set to gel mode regardless of the actual battery type, and don't charge a gel cell battery unless you want to ruin it. (over-volting a gelled electrolyte battery puts vapor voids in the gel itself, permanently reducing the capacity of the battery.) AGM and flooded are fine. Proper voltage, charger voltage per manual (verified with several voltmeters by me) Gel____14.1______14.7 Flooded_14.4______16.0 AGM___14.9______15.4 As you can see its lowest voltage would still ruin a gel battery, as gel can only handle 14.7 volts when it is below freezing. Some times it wrongly detects a 6v battery as 12v, so if you use it on a 6v, watch it to be sure it detects it correctly.
