Is this a 10a charge start to finish or graduated?

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

How long should it take to charge a riding mower battery to charge

Asked by: Tilly
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....

10-Amp Simple Battery Charger is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't charge a drained battery I am restoring an old car, and bought this charger to help as I work through the car's electrical problems. At first I was happy with it, although I was annoyed to have to watch a slowly-scrolling LCD display for information that a simple status light would convey better. Then one day I inadvertently drained my battery completely (not hard to do on an old car). That's when I discovered that this charger will simply refuse to work in that situation; it will not charge a battery if the battery is below 3 volts (this is from the owner's manual)! Which, of course, is when you need it most... This was a brand new, premium battery that was perfectly capably of being charged again, but Black and Decker apparently decided I need to be protected from myself in this situation. I went out and bought a better charger from another manufacturer, and will give away the worthless B&D unit. Note: The advert for the charger does not mention this severe limitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleaantly Surpised Purchased right before the holidays but still received in less then a week. Unit very small and weighs practically nothing. However it give a good solid charge to the car battery in a short amount of time. Lots of nice features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use, charges quickly I bought this to charge various batteries such as the lawn tractor battery, however the charge indicator isn't accurate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended battery charger I just returned home after an extended vacation to two cars with dead batteries. Purchased this charger after looking at several in two other stores. It works very well, screen gives exact detail of what it is doing and voltmeter shows what is happening to the battery. I highly recommend it, it is a good value and does a great job.
