In this video we demonstrate how to charge a car battery with the Noco Genius G26000 wicked smart car battery Charger.
So what do we have here? Alright so this is a Noco Genius charger model G26000. We actually use these to charge car batteries. It actually charges at a 26A Amp. hour rate or at a 5A amp hour rate. We usually do a 5A Amp. hour rate. It actually recognizes what kind of battery it is. You can just cycle through and do a 5A Amp. hour charge.
If the battery is actually completely drained you do want to charge it at a 26A Amp. hour rate. It will actually charge a battery pretty quickly but if you're actually trying to equalize the whole the battery and trying to revive it, you can charge it at the 13.6V / 5A Amp. hour rate.
How long does it usually take when it's at a 5A Amp. hour rate? If it's at about 5A Amp. hour it usually takes about 6-10 hours.
And at 26A Amp. hour? About 2-3 hours.
