IC-1000 – 1A 6-12V Automotive Battery Charger

The IC-1000 1A 6-12V Automotive Battery Charger is capable of testing, charging, maintaining, and even repairing all types of 6V and 12V lead-acid batteries, including WET (Flooded), GEL, MF (Maintenance-Free), EFB (Enhanced Flooded Battery), AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat), and 12V Lithium batteries. It has a built-in intelligent microprocessor which makes charging faster, easier, and safer to use. Safety features include spark proof, reverse polarity, short circuit, over current, overcharge and overheat protection. Keep it connected 24/7 without damaging the battery and keep your battery ready to use. Smarter battery chargers offer expanded features, not found on most chargers, such as desulphation, destratification, and optimization, which allow you to regain 100% of your battery’s capacity. These chargers are also capable of recovering battery voltages that are too low for traditional chargers to detect. The Smarter™ 1A 6V/12V Battery Charger charges batteries from 2-40Ah and safely maintains 6V and 12V lead-acid batteries of all sizes.


Superior versatility.
Four battery chargers in one.

Other manufacturers make you buy a separate battery charger for 12V charging, for 6V charging, for AGM batteries, for cold conditions, and yet another for lithium-ion batteries! Our multi-function battery chargers deliver higher performance and eliminate the clutter! With the simple push of a button, you’ll be able to switch between charging modes using just one device. 


IC-1000 charge modes

12V Norm Mode

Designed for charging starter and deep-cycle 12-volt lead-acid batteries, including Wet Cell, Gel Cell, Enhanced Flooded, Calcium, and Maintenance-Free.

12V Cold/AGM Mode

Designed for charging starter and deep-cycle 12-volt AGM batteries, or charging any 12-volt battery in cold temperatures below 50ºF (10ºC), including AGM.

6V Norm Mode

Designed for charging starter and deep-cycle 6-volt lead-acid batteries, including Wet Cell, Gel Cell, Enhanced Flooded, Calcium, and Maintenance-Free.

Keep Your Batteries Ready.

The IC-1000 is a remarkable charger and maintainer for 6V and 12V lead-acid and Li-ION batteries. It automatically determines the maximum capacity of your batteries and constantly monitors charging conditions to ensure that you experience top performance without worrying about constantly checking for charging issues.



Sometimes bigger isn’t better

Our smart battery chargers utilize the latest battery charging technology. Smartech battery chargers are built on a high-frequency and high-efficiency foundation, which converts energy 30,000 times faster than traditional automotive battery chargers. The efficiency of our chargers allows us to make them compact, lightweight, and incredibly portable. Our chargers minimize energy consumption and maximize your time; charging two times faster than old, linear chargers.

Safe to leave connected with zero overcharging.

Most manual, automatic or semi-automatic battery chargers continuously trickle charge batteries. Traditional chargers are susceptible to overcharge, thus limiting battery life. Our intelligent battery maintenance technology monitors battery activity, and only begins charging when needed. This system allows for continuous operation without user intervention, and zero risk of overcharging your battery.


Smart Protection to keep you safe.
Completely Spark Proof • Fault Protection • Reverse-Polarity Protection


Plus Protection from Short Circuits, Open Circuits,
Overheating, Over-Current, and Overcharge


Plug & Play.
Battery maintenance made simple.

It’s as simple as connect and forget. No wonder it’s the ultimate in battery maintenance. Quickly connect and disconnect the battery charger whenever you need. It remembers the last mode selected and automatically resumes charging when the power comes back on. The IC-1000 keeps any battery fully charged without supervision.




Advanced diagnostics.
Battery charging with intelligence.

Smart battery chargers can be frustrating. It won’t simply begin charging if it detects a weak or damaged battery or force charging if it detects an unsafe or abnormal charging condition. But prevention is just one aspect. Understanding and finding a solution is just as critical. Welcome to Advanced Diagnostics, which analyzes battery feedback and display a particular error pattern if a problem is detected. Each flash pattern tells you what’s wrong, and how to quickly fix it.

Solid Yellow Warning! LED (ONLY for 12V lead-acid batteries)  In Recover Process

Battery Charging vs. Battery Maintenance.
Which battery charger is right for you?

Selecting the proper battery charger depends on your needs. Do you need to recharge a dead battery entirely, or just keep a battery at full charge? Battery charging means you need to recharge a dead battery fully, whereas battery maintenance requires a mere trickle charge. Most battery chargers perform both functions, but understanding their limits and the amount of time to recharge depends on the size of the battery and vehicle. The IC-1000 is designed for charging smaller applications, like a motorcycle, ATV, snowmobile, or lawn and gardening equipment. It is also a perfect battery maintainer for a car, boat, RV, or truck. The charging time chart not only helps you determine how long it will take to recharge, but also its limits between battery charging and battery maintenance.


IC-1000 Wireframe schematic

Efficient design. Compact, yet powerful.

Our combination of electrical engineering and industrial design creates a powerful battery charger with a small form-factor. It uses (HF) high-frequency switch-mode technology to efficiently convert alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC) for battery charging. Its microprocessor adapts to variations in current flow to precisely control the charging to minimize power leaks.

Maximum performance.
Rugged, water-resistant plug & play connectors.

Connect directly to any battery with the battery clamps or permanently attach the eyelet connectors for super-convenient charging. However you choose to charge, the IC-15000 comes with interchangeable connectors that create a reliable, weatherproof connection that provide maximum current flow but easy to plug & play.
