Rated 1 out of 5Â by john 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.

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 1 out of 5Â 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.

I bought this to charge various batteries such as the lawn tractor battery, however the charge indicator isn't accurate.

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.
