Battery Charger
First time using a charger and had to use a bit of common sense and of course YouTube to make sure I connected everything properly . Just wanted to make sure that I did not ground the negative improperly. Battery was up and charged in 40 Minutes !

IT COULD'VE BEEN BETTER, BELIEVE ME
I've owned this charger for over a year now, it works fine but whenever I use it for my truck, it takes time to recharge so I can re-start, the 200 amp jump start setting seems weak sometimes. value for the money is not bad but it's very simple in terms of interface and buttons, 2 buttons and an amperage meter, you won't go wrong trust me. as of right now i have to connect 2 of these to jump start my truck, it doubles my amperage but it's not recommended. if you are buying it for a car or a low compression engine, you should be ok, for a truck, straight job or a rig try to get a bigger one.

Great product!

I had one of these for several years and it needed replacing! I purchased this for my husband for Christmas this year. When you need to get to work and there is no one else at home to give you a jumpstart, this is what you need!! My husband and I both work, him having to be at work before me and when you have to choose between getting to work late or having this at home to jumpstart you vehicle, this is it!!!! you do not have to wait for someone to get here. Great product!!!!!!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Finally a battery charger that is priced right

I have a battery maintainer and 10 amp charger already but they don't do you much good when the battery is low and your late for work, I purchased this product for that reason and also because it can charge my motorcycle, rv and boat batteries as well as jump start my car, it performs flawlessly and the price was very reasonable, the wheels make it easily mobile, now I have to figure out what to do with the old chargers!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Cannot be beat or killed.

For the price this unit cannot be outdone. Starts my German cars, and my Diesel F350, without problems. My father has had one for years at it has been thoroughly used and abused. I purchased mine this year (2012) and it does look a little different as far as the markings on the front, but it works just as well. Wheels help as you do not have to find some place to set the charger on while it charges the battery. Switches are the same, 200AMP Start, 40AMP Quick Charge, and 2AMP trickle. I have used mine to slowly charge a dead battery on 2AMP for a day or two to recover a battery. It always runs its fan to cool the inverter even on 2AMP trickle. I recommend getting a tap and die set, or thread chaser set if you do not already have one, the bolts and screws are thread cutting variety. This can be a problem as you are cutting into the sheet metal of the unit. The bigger 3/8 and 5/16 bolts that hold the front metal hook and the axle in place are easy to install while cutting threads but the 1/4x20 screws to mount the handle can be difficult to apply enough torque to, when trying to line up all four. I added 2 nylon plates to the left and right sides of the handle loop on mine that I secure the charging clips to. I used thin (less than 1/4 thick) cutting board type material with 2 holes drilled and attached to the 2 screws that hold the handle to the unit on each side. Overall an extremely good value for the money. As with all the chargers like this one I have run into over the past 5-8 years, Made in Mexico not China. The plastic wheels that attach to the axle are USA made.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
