$873.00
  • 18A total: 15A battery charger, 3A battery saver
  • Automatic operation regulates output to a single 
    battery bank
  • A patented built-in sense circuit checks battery voltage 120 times per second to compensate for voltage drop in charging wires providing quick re-charge, with no overcharge
  • Separate "Battery Saver" output eliminates drain on 
    vehicle battery when in station and a
    utomatically disconnects auxiliary vehicle loads from battery when charger is energized:
    Ideal for charging hand lights and portable radios
    3A output with automatic overload current limit
    Not recommended for powering highly sensitive 
    electronic loads 
  • Front panel indicators: AC power applied, Battery Saver circuit overload
  • Designed for rigors of emergency vehicle use; heavy duty aluminum case 
  • 3 year warranty


Input: 120 Vac, 50/60 Hz, 3.5 Amps Max
Input Fuse: 6 Amps, Fast Acting
Output: 12 Vdc, 15 Amps
Battery Saver: 12 Vdc, 3 Amps 
Output Fuse (Recommended): 30 Amps
Voltage Sense: No Sense Lines Required 
Power Indicator: Indicates Input Power Applied 
Battery Saver Overload Indicator: Indicates Battery Saver Exceeded 3 Amps 
Charge Indicator Options: Remote Bar Graph Display, Deluxe Status Center, or Watertight Status Center
Weight: 17 lbs
Warranty: 3 Years


The Auto Charge 1000 is a high output automatic battery charger. Unique electronic sensing circuits sense the true battery voltage while eliminating the need for external sense wires. Charging is completely automatic. The maximum output of the charger is 15 amperes. When the battery is fully charged, all charging stops. There is no overcharging and no water boil off. 
A common problem with electrical systems is the loading on the battery caused by rechargeable hand lights, portable radios and other loads. The Auto Charge 1000 handles these loads with a built-in “BATTERY SAVER”. Auxiliary electrical loads are connected to the Battery Saver output. During normal vehicle operation these auxiliary loads are connected to the battery. When the vehicle is plugged in to A.C. power, the auxiliary loads are automatically removed from the battery and powered from the "BATTERY SAVER" circuit. A maximum of 3 amperes is available from the "BATTERY SAVER". An automatic overload protector limits the 3 ampere output. A yellow overload indicator is illuminated whenever the "BATTERY SAVER" output limit is exceeded. 
This charger has three remote indicator options. Option 1, is the standard, 10 Element, Single Bar Graph Display. This indicator will come with the charger unless otherwise specified. Order 091-56-12-IND for this option. Option 2, is the Auto Charge Deluxe Status Indicator. This indicator has a digital voltage and ampere display, a 5 segment bar graph display to indicate the output current, and 4 LED's to show the condition of the batteries. Order 091-56-12-194A for this option. Or Option 3, is the Watertight Auto Charge Deluxe Status Center. This is the same indicator as Option 2, only the indicator is housed in a watertight bezel. The bezel is available in 6 different colors, Red, White, Blue, Yellow, Gray, and Black. Specify color choice when ordering. Order 091-56-12-194A-WT for this option.
