Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PRing Charges better than my original Fire Storm charger did.
I like the pulse charge capability that seems to give my older batteries new life. It also does not take very long to deliver a full charge compared to my old one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gunner194 Black & Decker "Firestorm", great battery charger for a number of voltages
I researched this product on-line and personnally went to three different store's to see and touch this battery charger, also to learn firsthand what other battery charger were available. When I was done I decided on the Black & Decker "Firestorm". This charger is small, lightweight, and will charge a number of different voltage batteries. It was also less expensive than buying a new battery. So now I have two batteries and this charger. It is quick to charge a partially charged battery as well as a full charge on a battery that is dead. It can sit on a work bench, or be mounted on a wall over a bench. Best of all, it is MADE IN AMERICA

This charger works much faster than the charger that came with my drill. I have two batteries and swap them out as needed. This unit is quick, and it has a light to indicate when charging is complete, which I find to be a nice feature compared to the stock charger.
Incidentally, prior to buying this unit, I was having a hard time charging batteries and thought they may have gone bad. I checked the old stock charging unit with my electric meter and found it was not putting out the correct voltage. So rather than throwing out batteries that were not at fault, I bought this new charger instead.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DOTYCAT Wish I had known about this item years ago!
This time with the purchase of a new tool & extra battery I decided to buy this charger. Figured it had to be faster than the included little wall charger packed with the tool. It really does cut the charging time required by roughly 1/3 to 1/2 the time with the little one. Well worth the cost if only for the ability to reuse the same depleted battery for the same job in the same day instead of before when all my outlets were plugged in with the little wall chargers for 10-12 hours and a job turned into a 2-3 day super task.

Lost the charger that came with my blower when moving.
Ordered firestorm fast charger online and had it shipped to my store. Came in 3 days early to my surprise. Picked up and put in the dead battery to charge and was using four hours later. Seams to run longer with this charger than it did with one that came with the unit. So happy with the charger that went out and bought a weed eater.

It charges very quickly. The directions say the battery can be left in the charger which is what I do as when left in the drill for any length of time the battery seems to go down rather quickly. But I am very satisfied with it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by flcowboy7 Replaced with BDFC240
Home Depot doesn't actually sell this product anymore (at least not in my store). It's been replaced with model 3 BDFC240: See my related product recommendation.
Appears to be the exact same charger, but charges 9.6V to 24V. Both products are still listed on B&D site, but I'm guessing they no longer sell the FSMVC.
