I had one of those "designed in sweden" trickle chargers for many years until the cable failed and I couldn't repair it. It was great but didn't have an AGM battery feature. I replaced it with a Noco Genius 3500 that didn't even last 6 months in our cold climate - the cable separated due to not enough plasticizer in the cable formula for cold climates. Grateful that Noco replaced it right away after I cut the cord and sent them a pic. Also filled with gratitude that they replaced it with a Genius 5 which has higher output and a more flexible cable. Not sure how the 3500 passed design or maybe it was a supplier issue. The Noco appears to not only have a higher potential output than the Swedish designed unit I owned it has lithium and a repair function. Personally, I find batteries last longer for a driveway queen if you pull it out, charge it up and let it sit in a quiet, dark, above zero Celsius home.Leaving them in a locked 9-5 discharges them too much unless plugged in.
