Whilst some trickle chargers may be “smart,” this model from NOCO is advertised as being no less than a genius. Frankly, for the price tag (say hello to the most expensive model on today’s list) it better be a genius!
Luckily it lives up the billing with a number of very useful, well thought out features. Safety wise we have lead connectors, reverse polarity protection and overcharge prevention. All very useful, and allow you to plug in and leave for extended periods without worry.
The onboard mini-computer (the genius part we guess) not only monitors the battery condition to adapt from full to trickle charge, it can detect and repair battery damage by altering the power flow. Not only then does it help to prolong existing battery life, it can even full on extend it.
The product even has a rubberized outer housing. That is to make it less likely to slip off a surface, and also to protect your vehicle’s paint from scratches. That is the kind of level of detail that shows you are dealing with a truly high end, well designed product.
It doesn’t come cheap, but if you are looking for a charger that you plug in and forget then this could be the one for you.
