Mroinge MBC010 Automotive Trickle Maintainer 12V 1A Smart Automatic Charger – Impressive

As a retiree, i was using my car for a lot of very short trips in the winter. The car was not driven far enough to fully recharge the battery. Eventually, the car would not start. In the past, i have found that batteries usually fail suddenly while this time i could tell that the cranking was slowing down over a few weeks. I decided to try buying a battery charger. The unit arrived in two days and after an overnight charge, the car was back to normal. This saved me the cost of both a new battery and a service charge to get a jump. It’s not real fast but it works perfectly.

When my emergency backup generator didn’t start during a recent power outage, i discovered the starter battery was dead, most likely of old age. I purchased and installed a new 12v battery and monitored its voltage. When the generator ran it’s weekly 20 minute exercise cycle the voltage would increase to about 13. 6v as it was being ‘charged’ by the generator. Overnight (with temperatures dropping near freezing) the voltage dropped under 12, which isn’t a good thing for trying to maintain a healthy battery. So i needed to come up with a better solution to keeping the battery topped-off, than the once-a-week boost from the generator. I settled on this unit because of it’s variety of battery and charge settings, including ability to charge a lithium-ion battery which i have in my rv, and it’s ‘smart’ technology that i’ve learned is very important after ruining many batteries due to my negligence in maintaining properly. Loved that it came with optional connecting types and ‘quick-connect’ plug. Tip: set the battery type/charging mode after plugging unit in, but before connecting to battery. Just as the manual explains, the battery voltage reached and remained around 14.

I’m not sure if this can really put out 4. Yesterday on a group ride i was trying to power my phone and a gopro like camera. The phone was hooked up to my helmet, i kept hearing a beep every now and then like the phone was being plugged in and out. I’m guessing that’s why i only got a few minutes of video on the camera. On the way home i was powering a gopro and the similar camera that time i got more video from the gopro clone but still lost most of it, the gopro stayed on the entire time. I like the size of this device compared to the one i had on before but the other one was able to power my phone and the gopro like camera fine.

Nice charger/maintainer – i just had my oem battery in my can am spyder go bad on me and used this charger to bring the new one up to full charge. From about 75% to full charge in approximately 1. It probably would make a great trickle maintainer charger, but i don’t like keeping a charger always connected to my batteries. Instead, i will use this charger every 2 weeks during off season and won’t need it during riding season as i ride nearly every day.

Less than 5 minutes after i connect the battery it indicates that the battery is fully charged when it’s not the case (a dmm confirms that). I’ve tried with two different batteries but got the same result. Based on other reviews perhaps i got a bad unit but in any case i will have to return this device. Edit: i found that leaving the charger connected for a while (even when the unit falsely reported than the battery was full), and then disconnect one of the alligator clips momentarily the charger behaves normally and the battery is finally charged correctly.

Led indicates status, it’s wall wart sized, keeps and extra car we have topped up. If your car is driven rarely, or even for days in a cold climate, you are nuts to not get one of these.

  • Impressive
  • Works for me
  • Powerful and works just like it is supposed to

Similar to the other brand, which i also have, but a lot less expensive (wires are a bit lighter gauge but ample). Works as promised, and these keep tractor, mower, marine, antiques vehicle, and other batteries topped up and in perfect condition. Will not overcharge, and shut off and go into monitoring mode when not needed.

Just what i needed for my car. I take many short trips and the battery wears down in cold weather. The battery is only 6 months old and i had it checked plus my charging system is good. The clips work fine on my lawn tractor and brought the battery to full charge. On the tractor the charger performed as per the instructions, it did blink when approaching full charge. On a car battery it goes straight from red to green when done. The one draw back is the round connectors won’t fit a side post car battery. I took a cigarette charger from an old spot light and spliced it onto the that cord. Works great and is ready to use any time as long as the lighter socket stays hot when the ignition is off. You can buy these ready made if you want one.

Great small 1000ma charger with indicator lights to let you know quickly what the status of your battery/charge is. Charged my 18ah battery very fast and went into float mode. Indicator lights include: flashing red – not charging battery, solid red – battery charging, flashing green – battery greater than 80% charged, solid green – fully charged (float mode). Would recommend, especially over chargers without indicator lights.

I wasn’t sure if this would work to keep my motorcycle battery charged when i wasn’t riding. I was wrong, and no significant boost in energy costs.

Cables feel cheaper, but are working appropriately. It is intended as a light duty product and so works as expected. The led light color changing function is nice to at a glance see the battery state rather than some of the other products that are either lit or unlit.

4 STAGES – STANDARD CHARGE & MAINTAIN MODES

  1. Initialization: Initialize diagnostic battery performance and desulfating the battery through 17V pulse.
  2. Bulk: Major charging stage where the battery receives the majority of its charge. During this stage the battery brought to 75 – 80% of its charger. The MBC010 charger delivers maximum current until the terminal voltage has risen to the full charge level for Normal battery.
  3. Absorption: Completes the charge up to virtually 100% at a constant voltage. The current tapers off after the current reached the minimum level.
  4. Float: Maintenance charging at constant voltage, keeping the batteries at 100% charge. Float mode chargers indefinitely without damaging the battery.

I love these things, i bought 5 of them and they work great. Because they come with different connectors they can easily charge different equipment. I have one on my tractor, mower, brush cutter, utv, and harley.

I have a premium battery it is a 60 amp hour battery. This item was exactly as described and then some. The description said that it would maintain this type of battery only, but it also fully charged my battery too. In all honesty it took quite a while to charge it to 100%, but the description said maintain only for my battery. I was happy that it did both, especially for the price. I would definitely recommend.

An impressive battery maintainer, for the size, price, and reliability. It works just as indicated by the manufacturer. I’ve had it now for a few months and it has worked flawlessly. For those thinking of buying one, be aware that this is not a battery charger. It puts out just a little over one amp an hour, so it will take a long time, even days, to bring a battery up to full charge. I use it on my grand cherokee which is equipped for off-road and i take this vehicle out once or twice monthly. When the light is red it is charging, then as it approaches full charge a green light blinks. Then when fully charge the green light glows steadily. It is very sensitive detecting what the battery needs: if you open a door and the interior lights come on, it will briefly blink green, and within a minute or so, it will glow green again.

This battery tender works great. It comes with two cables, one that clips onto a batteries terminals and another that bolts on to terminals. This gives you the opportunity to use it on multiple vehicles without breaking out the tools each time. It holds the battery on my motorcycle up well. The battery in my wife’s car was dead and i hooked this charger up overnight. The next morning it was fully charged and i haven’t had any problems since.

My old t-bird sets in the garage for long periods at a time. I did not want the battery drained down by little items like the radio presets. This charger also is a three stage so it puts the top float charge in the battery with automatic shut off when battery fully charged>.

My other battery tender bit the dust and quit completely. I saw this one on amazon and the price was much less than i gave for the other one. I decided to take a chance and i am very glad i did. It works just as described and is a very good product. It works like one that cost much more than this one. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a battery tender. I use it on a goldwing motorcycle.

Easy connection to motorcycles and vehicle battery using the included big battery clips and O-ring terminals.

It’s going to work for me since i need a 12 volt charger but if you needed a 6 volt charger the instructions say it wont work with 6 volt. Even though the amazon ad, and the box, say it will.

Spark proof during lead connection, reverse polarity protection, overcharging protection and short-circuit protection, with over temperature protection.

Perfect for charging all 12-volt lead-acid, flooded or sealed maintenance free batteries (AGM and GEL cell)
