Linear battery chargers or ‘trickle chargers’ are the precursor to NOCO’s Genius Smart Charging technology. Linear chargers provide a constant current to the battery regardless of the charge level of the battery.
Trickle charging technology does not have the ability to adjust or alter the charging current based on the organic feedback from the battery. Trickle chargers have the ability to overcharge and damage your batteries, you cannot leave your battery connected to a trickle charger and expect it to be maintained properly. If you were to leave your lead-acid battery connected to a trickle charger for six (6) months, it is likely that you would return to an overcharged and damaged battery.
