August 25, 2008

OTC, an SPX brand, offers the Smart Battery Charger and Maintainer (P/N 3176), which is designed to quickly and efficiently charge and maintain all types of serviceable 12 volt lead acid batteries widely used on cars, motorbikes, and other vehicles. A solution for prolonging battery life, the 3176 tool is fully controlled by an internal microprocessor unit that offers reliable battery detection and automatic charge management. Utilizing a five-stage automatic 5 amp switch-mode charging system, the 3176 tool diagnoses and rescues drained batteries, restores batteries that are slightly sulfated, and automatically switches to float mode once the battery is completely charged.
