The Quick Charge Portable 8 volt charger is a heavy duty unit that will charge and maintain if desired, 8 volt batteries, such as found in floor scrubbers, golf carts, electric vehicles, personnel carriers, etc. Quality chargers for 8 volt batteries are few and far between. These are handy for shops that maintain industrial equipment that may use 8 volt batteries in series strings, but need to charge and analyze an individual 8 volt battery. They are energy efficient, up to 25% more so than ferroresonant chargers, and are designed for quiet, continuous use. They are internally dip switch programmable for four charge profiles, and are standard with alligator clips. Best of all, they are made in the USA. These are built to order by the manufacturer, so allow about a week lead time.

We've been aware of Quick Charge Corporation for a while, but haven't had the time to look at their chargers for application coverage, quality, warranty, and charge profiles. You know we like US built products, as hard as they are to find in some markets. Quick Charge builds all their units in the USA, and stands behind them. The charge profiles they offer indicate an understanding of battery manufacturer recommendations, and good battery management. Most of the models have selectable profiles to accomodate the battery types. They also offer high amp models and voltages previously unavailable in our lineup, such as Electric Vehicle (EV) market chargers, and high end industrial applications.
Most of their chargers we will offer will have a float mode, for long term battery management. A few will shut off and monitor battery voltage, reinitiating a charge cycle if required. We have access to all their models, so if you want something that isn't listed, give us a call.
