I don't have experience with the 128CEC1, but it is the model that supersedes the 12248. If battery maintenance is your goal (and you don't mind mounting the unit to the wall), I believe you will like the BatteryMinder over the Noco and the Pro-Logix.

That's what I'm thinking. I've had the BatteryMinder 2012 for some time now, and like it a lot, but it can only deliver 2A. The 128CEC1 would solve that problem.

Then again, i could probably keep the prologix 2320 and use it for bulk charging of heavily depleted batteries and then just top off with my existing battery minder 2012.

I ordered a PL2310 last night. I don't currently have a reliable charger that puts out more than 1.5 amps.

It looks like a lot of charger for $50

Yes it's very versatile, the 10 amp setting is enough for any dead starting battery.

I'm not sure where it went downhill but Schumacher isn't what it used to be

for returning the 2 chargers.

the 2310 is a major bump in value @51$ if you dont need 20amp.

when I bought the 2320 it was only 10$~ dollars more.

Or did the 3rd charger you are considering have some other functionality that you would like?

Well, the BatteryMinder one has full time desulfation and supposedly better temperature compensation. Whether it makes a noticeable difference, I'm not sure.

But the Pro-Logix 2320 is actually quite nice. I'll hold out for a few more weeks before I decide whether to return it or not.

BatteryMinder has a couple of new ones out, but they get a little pricey.

Yep. It's the 128CEC1 that I would get. If i returned both the Noco g7200 and the prologix 2320, it would be just enouh to buy it. smile

Interestingly, the 128CEC1 seems to treat both wet/flooded batteries as well as AGM batteries the same way from a charging voltage perspective. They both get nominal 14.4V. Most other chargers I've seen bump up the charging voltage for AGM to 14.7-14.8V.

I received my 2310 last night. I went to the shop and attached it to one of the new 6v batteries I bought for my RV. It read 95% charged.

Attached it to the second 6v and it read 95%. Lastly,I attached it to a year old Deka group 27 marine battery that's kept on a 1.5amp Schumaker maintainer. The Deka also read 95% charged.

I'm wondering if 95% is some kind of default reading before the 2310 starts its charge sequence?
