I should've read the reviews before purchasing
I purchased this without reading the reviews because I own numerous Dewalt products so I trust the brand. I plugged in the charger and connected it to the battery per the instructions and it displayed the available voltage in the battery. I pressed the charge button, the fan started up and the display changed to recond for about 5 seconds and then it went blank except for the hollow outline of the battery, and it never did anything else. There is an audible beep when pressing buttons on the front panel but nothing ever shows on the display. I checked the fuse and it appeared ok but I swapped it with the included spare just in case and still nothing. Maybe I got a bad one but it was a letdown to have to side line someone's vehicle because my brand new charger died after 5 seconds or so of use.

    Good charger, wish it had a way to bypass reconditioning mode though.

      Thank you for your feedback. We deeply regret any inconvenience our product may have caused you. Per the instruction manual, this battery charger must be connected to a working AC outlet. Our product is easy to carry, for that reason we describe it as portable. If you need assistance with our product, please do no hesitate to contact us at 1.877.571.2391 or e-mail CustomerService@BaccusLLC.com
        Didn’t work when I needed it
        Used one time to charge a battery then after 4 months, when I needed it most to start a vehicle, it would not power up. Getting service was frustrating. Cannot recommend a product that doesn’t work when you need at that is hard to get fixed.

            So far it seems to work well. I've only used it once on my Bobcat battery (which is 8 years old). I used the regenerate function because I wanted to see if it would help the thing keep a charge. So far, so good!

              30A continuous charge right out of the box with a push of a button without fail! Just what I needed. My 20 year old charger would only give me 30A for about a minute or two before thermal overload. This new charger works like a charm!

                      Lots of bad reviews but it works fine for me
                      I had a car that was sitting for a few months and the battery was low enough that it couldn’t start the car. I charged up the battery for a few hours and I was able to go. I think its works well for light duty personal charging but I would get something else if I were using it a more professional shop setting.

                          Junk
                          Bought yesterday sounds like a great charger with a max of 30amp charging. Thought it would be great for my deep cycle batterys in camper. Very hard to get it to charger to start charging then it won't stay on. It was plugged in I picked it up to see what it said piece of crap shocked the crap out of me. It's going back today do not buy.

                              wont charge a dead battery (only partially dead)
                              This has some sort of mechanism that prevents it from charging a battery when completey dead. I have a new yellow top battery that is perfectly good, just dead, and the charger wont even begin to charge. I've tried to recondition three old batteries with zero luck. Definitely regret buying this.

                              Yes, this unit is a smart charger, which means it needs to sense some level of voltage in order to begin charging. Please don't hesitate to contact our Customer Service team for further troubleshooting help by calling 1.877.571.2391 or e-mailing customerservice@baccusllc.com.

                                The charger immediately tripped the GFI in the garage. I will be returning it. Shame on Dewalt for marketing such a shoddy product.

                                  I needed a charger and this one seemed to offer what I needed. I read the reviews about the GFI being tripped. Yes mine tripped. I will be installing a 20 amp GFI. What I used was my generator to power the charger. Hey a guy had to get his ride rolling.

                                    I managed to drain my car battery. I jump-started it and ran it for a few minutes, but it didn't have enough power to restart the car. I hooked up the DeWalt charger and started the slow charge. It fully charged the battery without over-heating it. I really like this unit.

                                    Dewalt has always been a bad choice
                                    Most people think Dewalt is a good brand, and that has never been true. Sure, it's ok and should work better than dollar store brands. But dont expect much more if you truly use their products Hard. None of their products are heavy duty, contractor grade. If you bought this and didnt notice it has a USB port for the ladies and other dumb people to think is cool, then there you go.

                                      The first one was dead when unpacked. The second one lasted a few months. The third one hopefully makes it a year or more. I use this as a trickle charger 24/7 for my RV. The size is perfect but the useful life is an issue.

                                      SEE BELOW IF IT POPS YOUR GFCI
                                      So far it works. it popped my GFCI every time because when you first plug it in it needs to charge some sort of capacitor inside as well as the fan kicks on immediately for a couple seconds this is too much of an initial drain for a GFCI to handle. The fix is to Simply plug it into a non GFCI outlet in a bedroom or somewhere else for just a few seconds you will see the LCD come on the fan will turn on and then off apt that point simply unplug and plug it into the GFCI. with it powered previously it does not drain the same and the GFCI will not pop.
