Product Overview

Get back on the road in minutes with the BLACK + DECKER BC15BD 15 Amp car battery charger. Vehicle won't start? Battery needs maintenance? Just connect the automotive battery charger clamps to the battery terminal and press charge. The 12V battery charger automatically does the rest for optimum performance. With fast, high frequency technology, it delivers 3-stage charging - automatically switching from fast charge, to top-off, to trickle charge. This battery charger is also perfect for motor homes, jet skis, lawn tractors, generators or vehicles that sit idle for months at a time. One of the most advanced chargers on the market, the Black & Decker Bench Charger features a digital LCD screen that displays charging status and battery status with easy to understand icons. It also includes a patented alternator check to evaluate the battery voltage under load to indicate if the alternator is maintaining battery level. Even if the cables are connected to the wrong terminal, the screen alerts you. While many other battery chargers require you to select various settings like battery type and size, the BLACK + DECKER BC15BD 12V battery charger is fully automatic and chargers up to 40 percent faster than other conventional chargers. Need to get back on the road quickly? The charger also features a patented Engine Start Timer to boost your vehicle battery in approximately 8 minutes. The built-in cord and cable wrap and clamp storage makes the charger easy to use and store.

Didn't work right out of the box
Good grief. Trust the negative reviews. Any positive reviews are certainly from the manufacturer paying for them. The second you pick it up you know its garbage. I wish I read all of the reviews stating the exact same problem. Plug it in and nothing happens. Screen is blank. I tried several outlets. Then they write all over the instructions and on a tag to call customer support to troubleshoot. How about we can just plug it in and it frickin works?!? Why waste time to have them send you a new one. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!

    Poor Quality Control
    I thought maybe there was a bad fuse inside because nothing happened when I plugged it in. What I found was a defective power connection (see picture) The entire circuit board was assembled just as poorly. Barely enough solder in some places and none in others...

      I use this in my RV for secondary battery. It has no problem keeping it charged up while using 12 volt accessories, including the sound system with a 1500watt amp and subwoofers. I also use one on the backup generator at work. Always keeps the battery ready to go. Highly recommended!!

      Doesn't work. Connected to dead battery but the display shows 100% charge after one second and switches to floating charge. This also disables the jump feature since it thinks the battery is full. Useless charger.

        This B&D charger did exactly as promised. I had a 15 mo old battery that would not start a car which I only use seldomly ( once a month or so). I used an extension cord to reach the car in driveway with this charger. Did a fast charge and got the car started then brought the car into my garage and used the battery recondition mode for 24 hours then charged the battery overnight. Woke up to find fully charged battery and B&D unit automatically converted to trickle charge mode. I'm going to begin using this for regular upkeep of the battery.

          This is the one you want
          Great charger, love this thing. Its well designed and built. It gives you a read out in amps of its output so you know it is actually working. Gives the batteries voltage as well. You can also test the alternator with this battery charger. It comes with a feature to do so. It has a recondition setting that sends a series of electrical pulses to break up the crystalline form of lead sulfate and to turn these chemicals into useful battery electrolytes. It not only charges and maintains but can help restore optimum performance! All that for just $60? Wish i would have bought it along time ago! No more schumacher trash products for me.

            Looks rugged, nice controls and seems to work well but didn't bring a 7 year old dead battery back to life, although that wasn't the fault of the charger. Easy to use, the only odd thing is that as many other reviews have noted, the instructions say to plug it in before you connect it to the battery to the battery. First I've heard of that in my 50+ years but I guess times are indeed changing.

            Everything i thought it would be, Automatic adjusting in amps to charge battery from high amps for a dead battery to lower amps when the battery increases in charge .Easy to use with strong clamps . I like the pulse mode to clean the plates in each cell. I'm using it for my RV batteries its been working well. The Float mode is good and will not over charge the battery. I've been using it for about 2 months now without any problems. good little unit for the money. It has a 40 amp starter mode i have not used yet.
