BatteryMINDer® 2012 is a SmarTECHnology™ microprocessor controlled charger/maintainer/desulfator. It is designed with 7-stages and is fully automatic. Plug ‘n Run feature means “no buttons to push.” Features easily understood diagnostic LED indicators that display the battery's condition and actual state-of-charge profile. This charger actively monitors your battery's voltage, amperage acceptance and temperature at all times. Working through a series of charging and diagnostics stages, the internal program adjusts its output several times a second based on sensor reading to quickly and correctly charge your battery. When used as a maintainer, the BatteryMINDer® is guaranteed to maximize your battery's life and storage capacity. The temperature compensated long-term maintenance stage will add years of service. Patented full-time high frequency pulse desulfation (NOT high voltage) prevents battery sulfation on new batteries or eliminates in older batteries, the #1 cause of early battery failure. Unit can maintain up to six 12 Volt batteries at one time when connected in parallel by using SmarTechnology™ Y-Connectors 210AY or customer supplied 18-Gauge insulated wire.

Keeps battery fully charged when vehicle is undriven for a few days. Vehicle is a 2016 Toyota Highlander fully equipped with electronics which load the battery. Without the battery minder, the battery would not start the vehicle if it is not driven for a week or so. We have other vehicles which also have battery minders connected to the batteries for the same reasons. Excellent product.

I love this product. This charger managed to get my buddy's motorcycle battery back to life when nothing else would. The de-sulfation capabilities of this charger are the reason for it. I now use the one up north to maintain my back-up generator battery and purchased a 2nd, AGM-rated charger for our Beemer down in Florida. It's been charging/maintaining that car since early March. Dying to get down there this month and see if I'll be making as stellar a review on that charger as well.

Installation was easy, including the optional remote temperature sensor.
This application is for the starting battery in a small diesel locomotive, which is located at a museum and used infrequently. Charging unit is installed inside the cab, with wires running to a battery box mounted on the outside deck. Used split-loom to protect the wires.

I got this charger for my 1998 Hummer H1. A two battery setup in parallel. In the past I'ld have to disconnect and charge each battery independently and it would take a whole day to do it. I got the Battery Minder 2012 after talking with one of the companies tech staff. They were very familiar with my issue. The product has worked amazing and saved me a lot of headaches and back pain of leaning over 37" tires working on battery issues. I now have the charger capable permanently hooked up and just have to reach under the hood to connect them to the Battery Minder charger/maintainer block. The gauges let you know the exact status of your battery and it's levels and if all the cells are good.

I recently got the BatteryMINDer 2012. I bought it because my Battery Tender would not charge my car's Battery at all. A regular old fashioned charger would charge it, but after 1 trip, it would be dead again. I thought that my car may have a serious electrical problem, as it is almost an antique and electrical issues are common. I put the Battery on and the 2012 told me that I had a Bad Cell! The Battery Tender didn't tell me anything except that it would not charge it. I went and bought a new Battery and now my car starts up every time and I didn't have to spend lots of time & money tracking down an Electrical fault! Thank you BatteryMINDer!
