    One reason I bought this model is the desulfation mode. There is no explanation at all in directions on desulfation. I called customer service 3 times and received 3 different answers to the same questions. The reason I'm doing this review is to explain the process to others so you understand before you purchase this charger or you will know what is going on after you purchase it. There are no buttons, lights, or display items for desulfation mode. It goes into this mode automatically during normal charging. Best I could put together from the last girl I talked to, that seemed to know what she was talking about, was this... If charging process seems to have "froze" then it is desulfating. Say your putting a battery on charge real quick to top it off the last few %, it will seem to lock up for what could be hours with no indication of what it's doing or how long it will take. Let's say you put it on and it reads 90%. You can watch it work it's way up to say 97%. You think your about finished but it just sets on 97% for 8 more hours because it's desulfating. I've charged a total of 9 batteries of different varieties since my purchase. 5 car, 1 truck, 1 deep cycle trolling, 1 tractor, and 1 ATV battery. It works great and I love the automatic "plug and forget" nature of the charger. No worries of checking on it everytime you turn around so you don't overcharge/damage your battery. The one real fault I see is the desulfation mode needs to be a true "separate mode" you can use when you decide to. The directions need to explain the desulfation mode also.

    Compared to my old bulky transformer 6/2 charger, this one runs circles around it. It uses newer technology eliminating the bulky transformer, resulting in very compact and lightweight unit. Yet it delivers almost 3 times the output as the old one. Being used to seeing the old analog amp meter, the digital display showing % charge was different at first glance... but it soon became apparent that this is a much better way to truly see how the charging is progressing. Only 2 buttons to set: One selects the type of battery (standard, AGM or GEL), and the other selects the charge rate (2-10-15). Bingo! I charged a new 700 cca battery from 67% charged to fully charged in about an hour at the 10 amp rate. As the charge got to 100%, the charger automatically sensed it and switched to the 2 amp "maintaining" rate. No worries about overcharging and cooking a battery. One "little" feature which I love is the fact that it has built in cord wrap arms for wrapping the cords for storage. A little thing, but oh so convenient. Very few manufacturers ever provide means for storing cords with a device... thanks Schumacher! The owners manual is very thorough and explains different anomalies that may show up and the proper course of action for each. Very helpful. So far, I see no "cons" other than the fact that the indicator LEDs are hard to see in bright sunlight... but all digital devices have that drawback. The "&charge" lcd display, however, is quite visible even in the sunlight. I was always uncertain with my old charger... and concerned that I might be doing more harm than good from potential overcharging. But this new smart charger gives peace of mind. That alone is worth the investment.

    Wanted a marine battery charger that wouldn't break the bank, but still give me the slow charge of a higher priced item. Well I found it with the Schumacher XCS15, along with a digital gage to let me know when my battery is fully charged. Extended battery life at a low price, can't ask for much more!

    Charged to large marine batteries from 1/2 charge to full charge with no problems just as the instructions said. I like the voltage and percent charge feature on readout. Very versatile charger.

    I like this charger. Only have two things that could make it better. 1. It does not have an off button. Needs to be unplugged to turn off. 2. If you have it set in a certain mode (Deep cycle slow charge, for example) if the power to the charger goes off it will default back to the factory setting of regular battery full charge when power is restored. Other than that it seems to work great.

    • A. Yes it does, however, you do not know this because there is no light indicating (maintain mode) and the fan never turns off so you can basically only assume that that it is no longer "charging" and in maintain. There is a light that shows a picture of a battery which lights up when fully charged. I just wish the fan would cut off when there is no charge going to the battery. I will not leave it in maintain because of this.

    • A. Yes, when the battery is fully charged it puts it into a maintain stage which is off until the battery shows signs of weakening. Then it gives it a quick charge to keep battery at 100%

    • A. it will not overcharge the battery. it acts as a float charger, maintaining the battery, once it reaches full charge.

    • A. Yes. When battery is fully charged the "charged led" will light up and charger will go into "maintain mode". It will give battery a small amount of charge overtime if it needs it to stay fully charged. All automatic. Read my review about desulfation mode also.

    I have a variety of batteries that occasionally need charging- ATV, lawn tractor, auto, and marine. The marine battery is the one that requires the most attention since it doesn't have any other source of charge. Should I be looking a more than one charger, or will this do it all? (I do have a trickle charger too.) Can a car with a dead battery be started from this charger? Thanks for the input.

    • A. Yes this charger is a lot of chargers in one, however I did not see that it can quick start a battery, but it sure can charge a dead battery back to life with a little time. I call it the Set it and Forget it, of Chargers!!

    • A. This will work on all your batteries, 6 & 12 volt, and just let your marine battery discharge nearly completely, so it will continue to take a full charge, I never tried to start a car but I would sure give a try in a pinch

    • A. I haven't used this on ATV or Marine, but it says compatible with 6v, 12v, regular, agm, or gel type batteries. I use this on my car failing battery everyday. The manual says it has automatic float-mode to keep batteries charged (good for leaving the boat connected over winter months) but I'm exchanging mine since I've found it doesn't switch to float mode. This is a charger/maintainer, not advertised as a starter. The next (more expensive) model is advertised as a starter.
