Are you sure that isn't the model number? 1000 amps is way too big. 1000 amps is enough to start the space shuttle! Well, almost. If you had one that big and turned it all the way up, it would suck the power poles out of the ground, and all the lights in town would dim!
I have an old clunker here with a maximum capacity of 200 amps, but I never turn it all the way up. As long as you use yours on the lowest setting you should be fine. If you read my web page you would have seen that at the higher charging rates, the plates in the battery will tend to vibrate excessively causing some of the lead to flake off faster than normal. On its own, that takes about five years, (the length of the typical warranty), to occur. If you charge your battery repeatedly at a very high rate, the battery might fail in, ... Oh, ... Maybe 4 1/2 years, that's all.
Happy to hear you found a charger you like.
