Powered by NOCO VosFX Processor
The VosFX Processor is a revolutionary smart processor utilizing sophisticated levels of intelligence to alter the charge process, based on organic feedback from the battery, to extend battery life. The VosFX Processor quickly and efficiently makes decisions on how to charge the battery without risking user safety or damage to the battery.
Wicked Smart Features:
- 6V/12V Compatibility
Charges 6V and 12V batteries
Returns to last selected mode when restarted
- Fully Interactive
Automatically adjusts itself to changing current needs
- Designed for Safety
Reverse polarity, short circuit, open circuit, spark proof, overheat, overcurrent, and overcharge
- Multiple Battery Chemistry
Safely charges Wet, Gel, MF, and AGM batteries
- Extendable Connectors
Plug-n-play connectors for easy accessory changes
- HF/HE Switch Mode Design
High-frequency, high-efficiency for a lightweight, compact charger
- Rapid Charging Technology
Charges batteries 2X faster than traditional linear battery chargers
- Variable Input Compensated
100% full charge even with varying A/C input voltages
- Abnormality Protection
Automatically shuts "off" if charger remains in Bulk charge mode for an extended period of time
- Step 1: Diagnostics
Checks the battery voltage to make sure battery connections are good and the battery is in a stable condition before beginning the charge process.
- Step 2: Soft Start
Begins Bulk charging process with a gentle (soft) charge.
- Step 3: Bulk
Continues Bulk charging process, returns 90% of battery capacity.
- Step 4: Absorption
Brings the charge level to 100%. The battery charger will deliver small amounts of current to provide a safe, efficient charge and limit battery gassing.
- Step 5: Maintenance
Monitors the battery voltage continuously to determine if a maintenance charge should be initiated. If the terminal voltage falls below approximately 6.4V (6V) and 12.8V (12V), the charger will start the Maintenance cycle until voltage reaches approximately 7.2V (6V) and 14.4V (12V) and then will discontinue the charge cycle. Maintenance cycle is repeated indefinitely to keep the battery at full charge, without overcharging. The battery charger can be left connected indefinitely.

I have a relatively old Black & Decker cordless, rechargeable mower, that I love. Unfortunately, I accidently killed the charger, and you can't find them anymore (no one manufactures them). After months of futile searching for a replacement charger, I decided I needed to find an alternative. I chose this multi-charger based on the similarity of its output to that of my (dead) charger, and on the 'smart features' that it touted.
However, when I tried to use it (by removing the cover of my mower, and attaching it directly to the batteries), I was getting a 'voltage error,' saying that my 'battery' was too high of voltage for the charger (rated @ 6/12 volts). I realized that my mower uses two 12-volt batteries, strapped together to make a 24-volt system (more mowing power). So, without even disconnecting the two batteries, I just charged each battery, individually. Worked like a charm!
Granted, it's a minor pain in the ass to have to remove the cover whenever I need to recharge my batteries, but at least I didn't have to replace my (originally $400) mower, and it only cost me $29.95!! The last time I was even able to find the charger I needed (3 years ago), it cost me $43.00..
After my last maintainer charger failed and killed my agm battery this charger brought it back from the dead.
The charger does what I order it to do. Keep a charge on my generator battery. So far it is doing the job.
Great little charger, simple to use right out of the box. Keeps the battery on my Corvette fully charged year round. Highly recommend.
Great. charger, I now own 3 & use them all my battery's. Just takes longer charge time for car/truck battery.
Attached the NOCO genius to the batteries on an 80 hp diesel tractor that's sits for months at a time. Works as its supposed to. Only complaint is the small print on the manual is tough for old eyes to read..
I bought it to keep my 80 hp diesel John Deere`s battery's up for the winter months when its occasionally used to push snow. Charger works okay, if you can figure out how to set it up. The operators manual is about thumb size and not easily comprehensible IMO.
Next time I`ll buy one without all the diagnostic stuff that I probably didn't need.
