Rated 5 out of 5Â 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 out of 5Â by Skibum4106 Good Charger for the Money
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.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by llwind very poor quality
Well, I bought this unit a couple years ago. Only used probably twice and today when I tried to use it to charge my second car's battery because I have not been driven for a couple weeks. Guess what, the charger wont even power on itself. Totally dead!
Among the twice I used it, it cannot start my car either in the "start mode" either. Have to wait and let it charge the car battery. So it does not even worth the money, might as well get a regular battery charger.
Overall, one of those cheap but poor quality product made in China. Useless when you really need it to work!

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 is the only jump start and charger worth buying at this price point. Would recommend it!
