Second NOCO GENM1 4 amp charger doesn’t work, wont see the battery
I already owned one of these and have it mounted in my 3/4-ton diesel to keep the battery up in our Canadian winters and it works perfectly. The device I got here is a different story. It has issues with charging a battery if it’s less than 10.5v. Since it is supposed to auto recognize the battery it seems to be somehow fooled and simply goes into a stand by state. When metering the battery, you can see the voltage spike when the charger is first connected and then after about 2 seconds the charger simply drops the voltage and will not charge the battery. So while my second one of these may be a dud or the manufacturer has tweaked the algorithm used to do the charging, it doesn’t do what its supposed to do.
