[Amazon.ca] Noco Genius chargers ~25% off

These are very close to all time lows seen in the fall for Black Friday. Probably the best chargers and maintainers on the market. I picked up the 10.

If you're considering one, look at the chart on the page because only the 5 and higher have desulfating as well as the ability to charge higher capacity batteries. The 5 and 10 are great for deep cycle marine batteries in the off season and the 1 and 2 are good for motorcycle/ATVs.


Genius 2 @ $56.97 (all time low lightning deal in Oct @$56.86)

Genius 5 @$82.79 (all time low Oct lightning deal @$73.81)

Genius 10 @$117.00 (all time low lightning deal @$103.34 in October)

Can the Genius 2 be used on a power wheels battery? Or is there a better option?

short answer yes it will work
are you looking to charge the battery in a few hours? over night? long term storage over the winter?

answers to those will determine if you have a better option

Lets say a few times during the week if the kids use it. Mostly overnight. Just wondering if it would be better for the battery. Plus I can use it for other batteries around the yard (vehicle, atv, and boat).

Overkill for occasional power wheels charging alone but combined with the other uses you mentioned the genius 2 is a solid choice.

A 12v charger using alligator clamps will NOT work on an original equipment Power Wheels battery.

OE Power Wheels uses a proprietary connector. There would be no way to connect the alligator clamps from the 12v charger (without modification to the OE).

It's a different story if you are using an aftermarket SLA 12v battery.

Like 2kaccordcoupe mentioned, they'll all work on deep cycle batteries but the 1 and 2 aren't very useful as they'll only charge and maintain 30 and 40Ah.

The 5 will do 120Ah, which is plenty for most applications, and the 10 does up to 230Ah. I think the 5 is the best value of the bunch for most people.

Chop the harness, solder pig tails on the battery leads, install quick connects.
Point being YES it will charge the battery.

I agree the 5 is the sweet spot. I have both the first gen and 2nd gen G3500 units. If I needed to buy another or replace one of these it would be the 5

Important context after the fact is not helpful.

I bought the Energizer from Costco ($43) to keep my cars' batteries on a long charge (2A) when not being used (summer car and winter car - 4 and 6 cylinders) - plus it can also do a quick charge @ 4A.

What's the benefit of buying the Norco 2 for $57, over the Energizer above, if any, please?

GB40 is also on sale for $113. Can anyone confirm it's the lowest price?

Better to buy a Genius 26000 as opposed to say a Genius 10 and a BoostHD separately?

Welcome to the internet pal. Certain assumptions need to be made. Should I also assume the the poster has an available 110 outlet to plug into? Do they have the tools to get the under the seat of the atv to get to the battery? Keep the post to the context of charging the battery not the billions of possible connectors.

You think Noco would provide a plug and play solution for every possible proprietary connector ever created? Better stick to your proprietary brand specific products.

No need to chop anything according to the manual
