    I'm looking to purchase a current production manual 12v charger that will charge a battery from a fully dead state and I'm having trouble finding one. The majority of these new computer controlled chargers won't recognize the battery to begin charging. I know you can always connect the dead battery to a good battery and charge them both but I'm tired of dealing with that inconvenience. Instead of going vintage on eBay, any good recommendations?

    So the Ctek chargers won’t recondition and charge your battery back? Maybe your battery is shot? Never had an issue with Ctek

    I guess I should just keep my 10A/60A Schumacher behemoth from the 1970s that I inherited. Doesn't complain, or ask questions, just works! Definitely not a "smart" charger. Weighs around 20lbs too!

    If you want to charge a battery without issues yes keep it!
