Growing up and a Schumcher Battery Charger

Growing up and a Schumcher Battery Charger

We are so lucky as adults, we get grow smarter as we grow older. This process escalates and speeds itself up when we have and raise kids. Many times the fathers retreat or sanctuary is the garage, workshop, or basement.

Men always love to brag about the tools they have purchased and the Schumacher Battery Charger and Equus 3721 Battery and Charging System Monitor, are two of them that should be in any man's garage. And just to be clear and specific model I am talking about for the Schumacher Battery Charger is the SSC-1000A Automatic Speed Battery Charger.

I cannot mention how many times that my teenage daughter has let my battery run low or completely rundown. The funniest story, which has happened twice is when we are actually driving in the rain. The law in our state is quite clear that when the windshield wipers are on headlights must be on.

So the thing that I thought was funny is since I was not the driver I did not have that same control. See when I was getting out of the car as a passenger, I totally ignored the warning beeps at the headlights look on as the car was being turned off.

Let me first discuss Equus 3721 Battery and Charging System Monitor, which really is a great device and will save you loads of money by being proactive. How many times in the past, have you gone to the auto repair shop thinking you had a bad battery and you learn it's actually the charging system that went bad.

My favorite times to use the Battery Monitor is when I am shopping with the family. I'll stay in the car With the Battery Monitor, When I keep the car off and the DVD player plays a movie I do not worry about draining the battery too low to not start (which was a BIG problem before I purchased this). I generally let it get to about 11.8 volts before I decide to either start the car or declare it movie free time.

Really think about this you are basically doing the same tests as the professional automotive repair shops as you are waiting for your family to come back from shopping.

I was skeptical that something this inexpensive could be so useful. But once you plug this tester into your cigarette lighter, you'll see this this little device is a lot more intelligent than you might think.

Once you start the car, the little battery icon goes out and you see a little charging circle icon displayed - this tells you the device knows the car is running and that it is now displaying Charging Status. After you let the engine warm up, hold the engine at about 2500 RPM. The neat little LCD display now shows you the alternator's charging voltage. A green LED will satisfy you that the charging system is healthy, a yellow will caution you that your charging system might need some maintenance, and finally the red LED alerts you that your battery is being either under- or over-charged. The LCD display and graph indicates the exact nature of any problems.

This device really should be purchased along with the Schumacher Battery Charger specifically the Schumacher SSC-1000A Automatic Speed Battery Charger by Schumacher.

This is a hi-tech charger with all the bells and whistles. It is "dummy-proof" as well, and lets you know what is going on as it charges. I love it! I am now able to fully charge all my batteries, and the other charger went into the trash. I am telling you right now, you cannot have a better investment for less than $65. This is truly such a great automatic charger. You will wonder what you have been doing without it.
