Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Crossfire250 I really dig this thing.
Well, I've got a 2004 Chrysler Crossfire that has very low miles and only usually gets driven on weekends but then I traded the wife's Altima in for a year old Benz C250 completely loaded. Well I couldn't help neglecting the Crossfire for a couple of months causing the battery to die down and when I went to start it up one day it was click click click. I really wasn't surprised as much as I drove the MB instead being that it was the new toy in the garage. Well, I started shopping online for the perfect unit that would charge, plus more important, instant start so the car's alternator could take the battery back to being happy while taking a spin around town. All went well and I also love the way the unit stores so compact, even having a place to wrap and clamp on the cables. It feels solid also and was a great price here at HD. Check it out, I'm sure you may dig your's too. Oh, and I'm no longer neglecting the Crossfire like I did. lol

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MeInTexas Great Charger
This charger works exactly as described. It brought two batteries in my motorhome from unable to crank to firing right up. I love the digital display and the gauge that show the battery level. I have not used the start feature yet. Unlike other reviews, I've had no trouble winding up the cords and putting the clamps back into their storage position. Great battery maintainer. I have a vehicle I seldom drive and this is really helping to extend the life of that battery. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

This charger is small with plenty of power with 25 amp charging rate. It is also uneffected by the not so clean electric produced by my 800 watt generator that other electronic battery chargers will not operate from. It will fully recharge my deep cycle battery on my camping trailer in two hours after a day of use running on the inverter. Great for deep cycle marine batteries as well. Fortunately I haven't had to used the boost mode yet so I can't comment on that.

I have two larger commercial type battery chargers in my Farm shop. Black and Decker Claims that this charger can rejuvenate sulfides batteries. It seems to me that it can but I am not sure it does. It just seems like it has rejuvenated a couple of my old batteries.
My biggest complaint about this charger is that the cooling fan has been whining and having problems to start almost since the charger was new.
The charger senses the voltage of the battery and keeps increasing voltage to charge at it's maximum capacity which is 25 amps. A lot higher charge rate than other chargers so compact and light. I think this is because of the small cooling fan.
Also once the battery is fully charged it goes into float mode so that it will not overcharge the battery.
The Home Depot description is really poor as Home Depot does not explain the features of this charger at all.

I bought this charger even though several reviews gave it poor marks;specifically, starts charging and with 20 minutes it beeps, red light comes on and status window indicates "replace battery". I should have listened because mine does exactly the same thing! BTW, my battery is less than 6 months old and yesterday I left interior dome lights on. The same performance occurred when charging my engine battery for my motorhome.

Purchased this after returning another jumper that used a small lithum battery. It was a piece of junk that the handles broke when we tried to put them on the car battery. This unit works EXCELENT! I would recomend this to anyone!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NYML63 BEST CHARGER EVER!
I used this charger to fully charge my battery on my ML63. It was gentle enough for my Mercedes, doesn't blow fuses or causes electrical failures, but FAST....it took only 1.5 hours to fully charge my battery. My original reason for wanting to charge my battery was cause the other day i was with friends listening to music and i drained my battery and i know my alternator isn't enough to fully charge my battery, WHICH WAS SMART CAUSE IT WAS LOW, so i knew i needed a full charge so i won't ever find myself strained. I already fully charged 3 batteries. BUY THIS CHARGER AND YOU WONT GO WRONG, IT ALSO HAS 5 YEARS WARRANTY!
