Performance

Ampeak Car Battery Chargers contains a useful winter mode which, you guessed it, makes it easier to charge a battery during winter. Great for anyone who lives in areas pummeled by snow every year. But if you don’t, make sure you check out the DieHard 71219 Battery Charger Maintainer for all the car charger features you want. The Ampeak charges all types of 12-volt lead acid batteries like GEL, AGM, and STD, as well as letting you choose the charging rate. Unfortunately, the cooling fan is a little loud.

Design

The Ampeak Fully Automatic Battery Charger features an intelligent microprocessor that attaches to car batteries and the changing data to improve the battery charging process in the system’s multi-stage charging cycle. This results in a full charge faster and with less overcharging damage to extend the battery life and reverse polarity protection. However, it cannot bring a dead battery back to life. For that, you can try either the NOCO Genius Fully-Automatic Smart Charger or the Schumacher SC1281 Automatic Battery Charger which can also double as a jump starter. A final note on the Ampeak, the LCD Screen brightness makes it very easy to see all the information on charges you need.

Value

The Ampeak Smart Battery Charger Maintainer includes float mode monitoring to allow for optimization of battery power without overcharging. You can purchase the Ampeak as an 8, 15, or 25 amp battery charger depending on your needs (unlike Black Decker chargers that only offer 15 amp) with the price going up $10.00-$12.00 the higher you go. If you’re looking for a budget battery tender, try the MOTOPOWER MP00205A Automatic Battery Maintainer. On a final note, Ampeak Battery Charger Reviews are positive on Amazon, with an impressive 4.5/5 stars based on over 1,200 reviews.

Ampeak Battery Charger Maintainer Automatic Wrap Up

It can’t bring a dead battery back to life, or even a well-frozen battery (which is basically ‘dead’), so make sure you consider that before making a purchase.
