NOCO Battery Chargers - Battery Charger - 329-GENIUS5 Review


Michael: Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a quick look at the NOCO Genius battery charger and maintainer. This is a portable AC to DC charger that's going to draw power from your wall outlet to charge and maintain your battery. So it's going to be ideal for your six volt and 12 volt batteries that are rated up to 120 amp hours. It's going to be perfect for charging up a car or a truck.

If you've got a dead battery, you needed to get that battery charged back up. Can also work for an RV or a boat or tractor. If you've got your RV in storage, just need to keep the charge on the battery going. This can be a great option for that. It will also work for your lawnmowers, motorcycles, ATVs, really anything that's got a battery rated up to that 120 amp hours.It does support battery types, including the wet cell, gel cell, enhanced flooded maintenance free AGM and lithium ion, so basically all those different kinds of batteries.

This makes it basically for battery chargers and more on you're not going to have to go get different chargers for the different kinds of batteries that you have. It's got different modes that allow it to charge up those different kinds of batteries. It's got a mode for your six volt and 12 volt that charge up those lead acid batteries. It's also got a 12 volt AGM and a 12 volt lithium mode that are specifically designed to a fully charge those AGM and lithium ion and iron phosphate batteries. It has a repair mode on it that improves heavily sulfated and old 12 volt batteries to help restore that lost battery capacity.

It's also got a force mode on it, which allows you to manually charge extremely dead batteries with a charge as low as zero volts. So if you've got any of those really old dead batteries, it can help with those as well.It's got a low voltage detection rating of two volts, so again, if you've got a very low battery, it will help with that. It's very simple to operate. You've got the mode button here to switch between those different modes that we talked about and you can see it does have the LEDs over here that will show you what mode you're in and help with any of the indications there. It does have a multistage charging algorithm which allows it to charge your batteries two times faster than traditional chargers without having to worry about getting those overcharged.

It does analyze the battery condition and customizes the charge to both quickly and fully charge the battery. It's got a maximum charge amperage of five amps. It's got a maximum power consumption of 75 watts, so it's going to do a good job for you.It does have a thermal sensor that adjusts to the ambient temperature to maximize that charging performance. It operates in temperatures from negative four degrees up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. You can see it is pretty compact in size. It's got hyper density technology, which is going to allow it to maximize the charging efficiency while keeping it very small, so very easy to carry along with you. Just throw it in your glove compartment or under your seat or something like that. For overall dimensions, it's only about four and a half inches long by about three inches wide and then only about two inches thick, so very compact.It does have a durable inaudible 00:03:53 and resin housing, so it's going to be very rugged and corrosion resistant. It's got an IP rating of 65 so it's going to be very durable, not going to have to worry about any shock or vibration or water, dirt or dust Getting in there causing any problems. It's going to be very solid. It does have the over molded connection points to protect your cables from damage, help provide water resistant seal there. You can see we do have the needle nose clamps to get these connected to our batteries. You can also use a little Allen wrench to take the needle nose clamps off. It does have that eye ring on there that you can use if you're needing that. But these needle nose clamps are connected via the X connect technology, so you can unplug those, take those needle nose clamps off if you want, and then you can get some different kinds of connections with that X connect series to make different connections if you need to. We do sell those separately. So a very easy to get those switched out.You can see it does have the type B AC power cord so you can get that easily plugged into your wall. You get this all powered up, so very easy system to use. It's going to come in handy, I'm sure. It also comes with this mounting bracket. You just use the included screws to get this screwed in. You can see the mounting holes there and then this just straps around your unit. So if you're wanting to get it permanently mounted like on your camper or something so that it's always there, you just plug it into your wall when you need it, that's an option for you as well. So very handy little kit here to make sure that you always have power, that you can charge up your battery when you need to.It does come with a three year limited warranty from NOCO, so it's nice to know that they stand behind their product. Got three years if you have any problems, you can contact them and they will help you out with that. Overall, I think this is going to be a great option for those of you who are needing to maintain and charge your batteries, especially if you've got an RV or a boat or something like that that doesn't get used in the off season very much. You just want to keep that battery charging so that it's ready to use when you need it. It's going to be a great option for you. That's going to complete our look at the NOCO Genius battery charger and maintainer. Again, I'm Michael with each trailer.com. Thanks for watching.
