NOCO Genius Gen Series 5A 1 and 3 bank Battery Charger
This charger is a must have tool for competition robotics teams and hobbyists using 12-volt lead-acid (flooded, gel, AGM) or lithium-ion batteries. NOCO chargers charge batteries to 100% specific gravity every charge, and are able to adjust current in the absorption and finish stages based on the battery's communication with the charger.
There are up to 3 unique charging banks included in these chargers, meaning that you can charge up to three batteries at a time. Each bank has a capacity of 5 amps. This charger supplies a safe amperage level to charge 12V lead acid batteries quickly. The charger is engineered for occasions which need a charging system that may require the battery to be left on the charger for days at a time.
We have installed your choice of SB50 and SB120 connectors on each of the charging circuits, which makes this charger ready for FRC robot batteries right out of the box. The first time you use it, be sure to press the "MODE" button to set each bank to "AGM" for FRC Batteries.
Ensure that the batteries have had sufficient time to cool before charging. Neglecting this step may be detrimental to the longevity and overall performance of the batteries.

NOCO Genius GEN 5X3 Battery Charger
This was a no brainer! I have a smaller one at home and love it. The standard SB50 Connectors are awesome, and take the complexity out of connecting the batteries, while protecting the charger and battery from careless connection. The system makes a great basis for charging robot batteries and is perfectly set up for our Electrathon America cars, which use multiple cells to provide proper voltage. This charger makes it possible to quickly charge all 3 batteries at once.
