Autoxel vehicle battery charger, 3.8 A, 6 V, 12 V, 8 modes, intelligent car battery charger, vehicle physios with CC/CV control for LiFePO4 and lead batteries by Wet, MF, VRLA, AGM and gel
With 6 V and 12 V battery and physios.It has 8 charge modes and each can be manually adjusted.
The intelligent design is able to charge and protect the charger, the battery type chosen and the battery itself when the users are wrong.
With this automatic setting charger, users can simply maintain their batteries to their original level, to recover light sulphated batteries and extend the battery life.
Say goodbye to dead car batteries.
Benefits and features:
Energy saving: less power consumption at full voltage is not required.
Interactive: alters the battery charge based on organic feedback.
Download tracking: charge LEDs dynamically charge the batteries state-of-charge at a load of the charging current.
Firewall: multi-level protection grille prevents unusual and unsafe conditions.
Thermal monitor: internal temperature sensors are functional on extreme weather.
Compensation: suitable for different A/C line voltage for consistent charging.
We will see. I think this old Gel cell is toast. But I wanted a charger for AGM (absorbed glass mat) so I got this one. You can check it out on amazon at the link below.
It is a Schumacher SSC-1500A-CA Ship ‘N’ Shore 15 Amp SpeedCharge Charger with Battery Clamps.
In this short video I demonstrate how to connect a battery charger. The important thing here is to ensure you are connecting it up to the right terminal. If you get this wrong you could damage the battery and the charger. Enjoy 🙂

Overview of a simple easy basic homebrew Gel Cell (12Volt DC) charger scratched together in about an hour. Only 9 small parts & costs about a buck ($1.00). Includes current limiting & float charge state. You’ll still need an enclosure of some type and a 15 – 18 Volt DC supply at 1.0 Amp (heavy duty wall-wart or bench type supply). Works on batteries up to 20 Ah. Great for PC type UPS 12V Gel Cell batteries.
AGM and gel cell batteries should not be charged with regular battery chargers. Most standard battery chargers will not even start if a battery is completely dead or deeply discharged. I have restored batteries that were completely dead for over 5 years by using different techniques. Never use tap water or any other water in a battery except distilled water. Always use eye protection when handling batteries.
The OPTIMA Digital 1200 12-volt battery charger and maintainer was designed to enhance the performance and lifespan of OPTIMA batteries, as well as all other flooded and AGM lead-acid batteries. This video explains some of the unique features and functions of this product.

Please read! YouTube user Ciprianwiner wanted to know more about what I use to charge my sealed lead acid battery, so here it is.
The charger is a Numax 1 amp 12v sealed lead acid battery charger. I paid around £20 for it from a local battery specialist (Manbat) where as it would usually cost £35 on-line.
I am not saying that you never charge a sealed lead acid type with a car battery charger but I would advise being careful or using some sort of current limiting as once you have a gassing sealed battery from too much charging current its pretty much downhill from there in terms of capacity.
Usually you can find datasheets online from the battery manufacturers website with all of the charging specs for your specific battery.
Also it is common to see the battery’s voltage read well into the 13v range when it is taken off charge (I have even seen as high as 13.6v stay for a while!). But once you put a load on them it will come back down.
