Customer Questions & Answers

Does "not rechargeable " mean you only get one use "jump" ?

Asked by: Traveling
It does have a 'Crank/Start" feature, wherein it can supply up to 75 Amps for a few seconds, but then it has to 'wait' 5 minutes to do that again. I would recommend charging a 'dead' battery for about 10 minutes *FIRST*, then attempting the 'Crank/Start' feature. It charges at variable voltage, slowly increasing as the battery it's connected get closer to fully charge (good feature), and can supply up to 25 amps of charging current.

Does it charge deep cycle marine batteries?

Asked by: Steve
Yes, it will charge any 12 volt battery. "Deep Cycle" simply means that the battery was constructed with thicker internal plates (and some other minor differences) that favor a duty cycle of low load, deeply discharged (down to 40-50%) instead of the typical use in a car, where it has to supply high current for a few seconds, but spends the rest of it's time mostly or fully charged. Discharging a car battery down to 40% or less like a 'Deep Cycle' is designed to do will shorten the life of a car battery. Think of 'Deep Cycle' as light continuous load with a discharge to less than 50% between charges. This charger has a 'Smart' charge style, inasmuch as it doesn't go 'full blast' on a completely dead battery, and it increases the charging voltage as the battery gets closer to full. (Theoretically, 13.2 V, but realistically, anything above 12.8 V can be considered a 'Fully Charged' 12 volt battery.)

25-Amp Simple Battery Charger with 75-Amp Engine Start is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and powerful 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful and *Smart * little charger I happen to purchase this unit as an 'open box' and picked it up for approx $50. I have used this in my shop so many times. Has some very good features: 1) meter on the front is actually USEFUL... it tells you at what charge level the battery is at. 2) puts out a solid 25 amps charge at up to 14 volts, continuously. 3) Adjusts voltage automatically, ie doesn't charge with a high voltage when the battery is completely dead. It starts out at about 12 volts, and as the battery is charged, the unit automatically increases the voltage up to 14.7. (If you don't know about electricity, trust me, this is a really good way to charge a lead-acid [car] battery. 4) has a built in little cooling fan to keep itself cool ( helps the unit 'live' longer) 5) has two side spools, one for the power cord, and one for the jumper cables, and on the back of the unit, there are two spots available to clamp the cables onto. 6) Fairly compact for a 25 amp unit. As you can tell, I really like this unit, and I recommend anyone looking for a battery charger to spring the extra $ difference from a $40-$50 unit (that'll probably only be a 10 amp unit anyway) and get this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 5 by from Fustrating I have this charger for about 2 years. I got it to replace an old manual charger that I have had for 15 plus years. I have only used it 3 or 4 times for my mower or small garden tractor. Until today it worked on the few times I needed it. But on the 4th or 5th time I used it, it tells me I reversed the clamps. Red clamp on charger, plus on battery with a red ring. Black clamp on charger and the negative on the battery and it won't charge and says the clamps are reversed. It is compact and can start my mower and tractor when it worked. It looks nice but if you need a charger when you need a charger! I suggest you own a back up charger, if you buy this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great My kids are famous for leaving a door open, the inside lights on, or some other electric component active in my wife’s minivan after the engine is off. After borrowing a neighbor’s charger I decided to invest in the Black & Decker product. It works perfectly. I really like how it dynamically detects the battery. The three features are wonderful and easy to use. I definitely recommend this product!!
