Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by abigguy66 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.

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Denny 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kapetti 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by DWilliams 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Termin8r 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.

I looked at chargers in many stores and most around this price range where 6 amp or less and were larger that this one.Black and Decker have always made quality products and the Small compact and heavy duty charger fit my bill perfectly for what I needed.
