An automotive or car battery charger rarely goes wrong. However, if you find that your charger refuses to charge your car battery you can easily repair the fuse in the mains plug and the fuse on the battery charger, as it's highly likely to be one of the fuses that have blown. Often the issue is the small metal connector in the USB port, which may be slightly bent in a way that means it doesn't make proper contact with the charging cable. To fix this, switch your phone off, and remove the battery if you can. Then, put your battery back in, power on your device, and try charging again. Battery reconditioning charging devices are intelligent chargers that also has the ability to carry out the battery reconditioning process. Allowing them to recover deeply and severely discharged batteries with the help of an advanced switching circuitry that converts the AC input into DC output. Using the 12V repair mode will help to reverse the sulfation/stratification build-up inside of the battery. NOTE: USE THIS MODE WITH CARE. THIS MODE IS FOR 12-VOLT LEAD-ACID BATTERIES ONLY. THIS MODE USES A HIGH CHARGING VOLTAGE AND MAY CAUSE SOME WATER LOSS IN WET (FLOODED) CELL BATTERIES. There are a few tips you can follow when testing your battery charger for problems. Step 1 - Check Your Outlets. There are three ways to check the outlets that power your chargers. Step 2 - Check the Battery. Step 3 - Check the Charger. Step 4 - Use a Voltmeter. Step 5 - Clean Your Charger.

Locate the fuse on the battery charger. It's usually on the front, inside a clear plastic cover. You also usually find one or two spare fuses in the same location.

It may be that the charge port on your cellphone is loose and need to be fixed into place again. If you continue to charge your phone while it is in this condition, the charge port may burn and you might lose the phone. Hold the phone to a light and see if there are any black residue around the charge port.

Running a test on your battery charger is an easy process. Plug in your charger to an electrical outlet. Turn on your voltmeter unit. Take a battery or battery pack that's compatible to your battery charger. Check the readout on the voltmeter and see where the pointer is indicating to.

If your car battery is below 12 volts, use a dedicated charger. A car battery is considered discharged when the voltage drops below 12 volts. While your vehicle's alternator can keep a healthy battery charged, it was never designed to completely recharge a dead car battery.

Rub the Battery Remove the phone battery. Carefully remove the battery to fix charger port. Hold it between your palms. Generate enough heat and friction by rubbing the battery in between palms. Put the battery back into the phone and try charging again.

Recharge the battery with the BatteryMINDer battery charger desulfator to ensure that it is slowly and completely charged before you determine its condition. Allow battery to "REST" overnight for a minimum of 12 hours.

No, reconditioning batteries is not a SCAM. You CAN recondition these batteries to bring them back to life. Simply, painlessly, and profitably.

Smart chargers will detect voltage and resistance from the battery prior to charging. After reading the battery the charger determines which stage to properly charge at. Once the battery has reached 80%* state of charge, the charger will enter the absorption stage.

AGM or Absorbent Glass Mat is an advanced lead-acid battery that provides superior power to support the higher electrical demands of today's vehicles and start-stop applications. AGM batteries are extremely resistant to vibration, are totally sealed, nonspillable and maintenance-free.

The all-new start-voltage sensor allows the Genius to detect and charge dead batteries as low as 1-volt. For extremely dead batteries lower than 1-volt, manually turn on force mode to detect and charge batteries all the way down to zero volts.

NOCO Genius Boosts are designed to jump start 12-volt lead-acid batteries down to 2-volts. This is an indication that Boost can not detect a battery. If you need to jump start a battery below 2-volts there is a Manual Override feature, which allows you to force “On” the jump start function.

Unlike chargers, which are designed to charge your batteries completely, maintainers are designed to supply a small trickle of electricity to your batteries over a long period of time. This trickle charge is enough to counteract self-discharge, but not so large that it threatens to overcharge your batteries.
