Some chargers begin with low charging and build to 10amps. I need one that starts immediately at 10amps. Is that this model?

Answer: 
Actually, if you have a good/fairly new battery, the reverse is true. If a "good" battery is depleted slightly, all these chargers will develop and "push" the maximum amps into the battery in the beginning, because the battery is "willing". Then, when the battery charge state nears completion, the charger "automatically" (not really true, since the voltage of the battery is now sufficient to "push back") Read More
Actually, if you have a good/fairly new battery, the reverse is true. If a "good" battery is depleted slightly, all these chargers will develop and "push" the maximum amps into the battery in the beginning, because the battery is "willing". Then, when the battery charge state nears completion, the charger "automatically" (not really true, since the voltage of the battery is now sufficient to "push back") lowers its charge rate to about 2 amps to "maintain" the charge status.
However, If you have an old/sulfated/tired battery, the charger can't "push" the voltage to the correct level, hence the amps can't be pushed either. So, in that case, the "amps" will start low (because of the BATTERY condition, not the quality of charger) and build to 10 amps after the battery condition improves. In the case of a VERY poor or shot battery, no amount of amps will penetrate the sulfate barrier. Read Less

Answer: 
This is a difficult question without more information. If everything is "normal" and you have a new but slightly depleted battery, it should only take a few hours to get charged. If the battery WAS new but left over the winter fully depleted (as in less than 10.5 volts), this typically ruins a lead-acid battery, and it won't charge correctly, or at all. This is not the fault of the charger OR the Read More
This is a difficult question without more information. If everything is "normal" and you have a new but slightly depleted battery, it should only take a few hours to get charged. If the battery WAS new but left over the winter fully depleted (as in less than 10.5 volts), this typically ruins a lead-acid battery, and it won't charge correctly, or at all. This is not the fault of the charger OR the battery; just simple physics and simple chemistry.
So, again, without more info, very difficult to answer.... Read Less

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It works well. The first time I had to charge my battery with this it took an hour or two. But it kept me from having to call for assistance through my auto insurance, a good thing, and that would have taken up just as much of my time. And avoiding that nuisance is why I bought the charger. September 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Quality Charger I have owned this charger for about 5 years. Only used it about 5 0r 6 times, and lent it to relatives and neighbors about 8 or 9 times. It has worked properly every time. If a 12 volt battery gets a short in the cells, no charger will work on it. Nothing to do but replace it. That's not the charger's fault, no matter how old the battery is. This charger is dependable, and at a good price. It is about 25% faster than my old charger, and at this point, has lasted longer. March 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worthless This thing would only charge fore a minute and say replace battery. Right now its in a landfill some place. January 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by POOR PRODUCT Only used twice to charge the battery on my dinghy and then my car battery drained because I left a light on. When I attempted to charge it, the reading on the charger said "replace or service battery." THIS BATTERY IS LESS THAN SIX MOMNTHS OLD. I read another report that stated it would not charge an almost dead battery. If my car battery was fully charged I would not need a charger. I've had this charger for less than 2 years and I didn't use it much. October 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by saved the day I was pleased to find the auto shutoff feature works well with my deep cycle battery bank. My rv charger failed and this charger is working well. while I wait for the backordered parts to arrive March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works exceptionally well, great features. I think somebody might have posted the wrong specification sheet for this model. The BCS10B does Not include the engine start feature but does include a cooling fan. The advertised 6-hour charge time (from dead to done) is accurate, the digital display keeps constant update of battery voltage and any issues, and the battery condition meter appears to actually work! The only thing I miss is a power switch. All-in-all the BCS10B is a very well designed product with great features and in my book this makes it a good value. July 21, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple to operate I had another charger, but it didn't seem to be charging. The needle would move occasionally, but didn't appear to be charging my batteries. I decided to purchase this charger thinking the other one was not operational. I hooked it up to a battery and it indicated the battery was charged. I placed the battery in my tractor and it cranked right up. The fact that this charger tells you when a battery is charged says it all as far as I am concerned. Glad I made the purchase. October 16, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Useless on a completely dead battery I have a spare vehicle that is used mainly for hunting and fishing, so it doesn't get driven much. The battery went dead this charger said to replace the battery. The battery is 6 months old. It did the same thing on my boat battery. Useless garbage. Wish I hadn't wasted my money on this thing.
