I got a new to me 21 f150 king ranch with the 3.5 eb. I guess I need to charge the battery but my old charger isn’t compatible with the AGM batteries. Any recommendations on which charger to purchase or ones to stay away from?
Thanks
I really like this charger. Good for AGM batteries and won't overcharge. Safe to leave on indefinitely.

I also use the Noco Genius Gen 5 charger. The Gen 5 series is totally sealed and has an AGM setting (which is remembered after being selected), so doing a permanent install under the hood is no problem. There is a great location on the right hand side of the radiator holding tank for a permanent install of the charger. I also installed 2 Noco permanent plug adapters (gcp1) below the head lights (one plug on the right "for the engine block heater" and one plug on the left "for the Noco charger"). I drilled a 2inch hole on either sides of the plastic portion of the front bumper (below the head light and above the metal part of the front bumper), remove the plastic portion of the bumper (2 bolts on both inner sides of the front wheel well, then un clip front left side to right side from front wheel to front wheel). This to make sure that the 2inch holes are located where there is more space behind the holes. I now have a permanent plugging solution for the engine block heater and the charger. See the following pictures for a clear visualisation.

A NOCO Genius 5 has been connected to my battery for 1 year 4 months now (~28,000 miles) and gets plugged in every night. Set it and forget it, it remembers the last setting.

It's $80 right now, I paid $65 when it was on sale - and NOCO stuff goes on sale at least a couple times a year.

I'd like to know what Amp selection you guys use to charge your agm batteries? I have a 22 f150 lariat. Bought the viking charger which has a agm setting. I have it set to agm and 8 amps right now. I've read 15amp setting would be too much? I'll attach pics.
