POWERFUL PERFORMANCE: The Schumacher SC1281 delivers 100A engine start, a 30A boost, and 6A<>2A charge/maintain rates; Strong enough for cars, SUVs, and trucks 30A BOOST MODE: The boost modes quickly bring deeply discharged batteries back to life ADVANCED DIAGNOSTICS: A built-in battery and alternator tester determines charge level and helps diagnose electrical problems FULLY AUTOMATIC: The charger features multi-stage charging,...
The Schumacher SC1281 100A 6V/12V Jump Starter and Battery Charger is designed for heavy-duty charging needs with 100A of jump starting power, built-in diagnostics, and sturdy construction. It also features 30A boost, 6A charge, and 2A maintain rates.
The unit will automatically detect when a battery is fully charged. It will then halt charging and shift to maintain mode.
The integrated battery and alternator tester lets users determine their battery’s charge level and will help diagnose vehicle electrical problems.
Protect your battery and the SC1281 with reverse hook-up protection, which prevents damage if the clamps are reversed.
The SC1281 uses an advanced charging algorithm designed to keep your battery in top condition and extend its lifespan.
Will this charge a completely dead battery?
Yes, the SC1281 will charge a completely dead battery, unless the battery is bad. If you are using the engine start feature, we recommend first using the boost mode to quickly add energy to the battery.
Does this unit have internal batteries or is it powered by AC?
The SC1281 does not have an internal battery. It must be plugged into any AC outlet before charging will start.
Will the SC1281 desulfate a battery?
Yes, the SC1281 has an automatic desulfation mode. If the battery requires desulfation, the unit will automatically switch to desulfation during charging. Desulfation can take up to 10 hours.
Does the SC1281 use multi-stage charging?
The SC1281 is controlled by a microprocessor that employs an advanced charging algorithm to optimize battery health. This passes through several stages including bulk mode, absorption, float mode, and maintain mode.
What does 6A<>2A mean?
When the 6A<>2A charge rate is selected the SC1281’s microprocessor will automatically adjust the amperage between 6A and 2A as need to fully charge the battery and then maintain the charge.
Every home garage should have a quality Schumacher battery charger and jump starter.
The SC1281 provides home mechanics with serious engine starting and battery charging power.
The unit’s maintain mode can keep your battery in top condition during restoration.
