As an engineer and a former maintenance man, I have used many different battery chargers over the years. This one is definitely different. Although this charger is designed to charge car, truck, motorcycle and ATV batteries, I decided to give it a thorough workout by attempting to charge my 5 year old lawn tractor battery, which had sat unused for quite a while.
The first thing I was struck with is the modern and sophisticated appearance of the Pro-Logix. The charger has a cool display that shows percent of charge, battery voltage, battery type, and charging rate. It has a CHARGING IN PROGRESS indicator, and a CHARGING COMPLETE indicator. There are error indicators to alert you if you have connected the battery wrong, and it even has a handy cord caddy to keep the power and charging cords organized.
This is what I’d call a smart charger. The Pro-Logix first analyzes the internal condition of the battery, then follows a staged internal program of Energizing, Fast Charging, Absorption, and Completion., all based on the results of the initial analysis.
Following the instructions, I set the charger for my type of battery and voltage, connected it to my battery, and waited as the charger analyzed the battery. Since my battery was older and low on charge, it did take the Pro-Logix some time to do the job. After the charger had finished, I placed the battery back in my lawn tractor, and lo and behold, it performed like new!
I had been planning on replacing the battery, but as of now, it looks like this battery will be good for at least another season! This charger can also maintain a battery during long periods of storage, utilizing periods of exercising the battery, then restoring the charge.
This Pro-Logix is an impressive charger. It’s the real deal.
Now, for the fun!
