      Nice little charger.
      I purchased this to maintain my motorcycle battery, however it works well for my small car (430 cca) battery too. On both batteries it slowly tapers off the charge (both charged and charging lights on as described in the instructions) as the battery nears full charge; 14.5v for lead acid batteries. If you want to know the health of your battery, check the voltage 24 hours after charging. It should be at least 12.5v at around 60 degrees. If it is less, you battery is starting to show some effects of age. I haven't had to bring a car battery back from the dead (<12v for lead acid), however this is not the correct charger for that task due to its low amp rating. That's why it is called a maintainer. Overall, I'm very happy with it.

      Ruined Batteries
      I bought this maintainer because I had good luck with the last one I bought about 5 years ago for a Corvette. The last works great with no problems. There was a change made in the maintainer since I bought the last one. I read several reviews that warned about the malfuction but since I had one already I went a head and bought another. Bad idea! It worked fine at first, but then I noticed that the amber light was blinking. The instructions said it would do that when bringing the battery up to voltage. Well, it continued to do that for several days. I unplugged the charger/maintainer and plugged in another maintainer and the light went straight to red (meaning the battery was dead). I thought I had a bad battery. I unplugged another maintainer (Dextron Battery Tender) and plugged it in to the (bad) battery and after several hours of charging the battery was charged up. I should have listened to the reviews I read before I bought. I took the maintainer back the Sears and got my money back. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone that doesn't want to ruin their battery.

      Simple and perfect

      I have bought 4 of these so far for my classic cars and lawn tractor. I tried other brands that did not work these work every time. Some of the ones I have are over 5 years old. My friend who owns a repair shop has 7 of them he uses on customer cars. Worth every penny.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Well designed charger!

      You can go to that import store and buy an inferior maintainer that doesn't charge, at half the price, or you can get this beauty. This charger is 500% better in my opinion. It works very well. Is well designed and worth every penny!

      Perfect for winter battery maintenance

      Purchased this to maintain the battery on our Corvette over the winter. It works perfectly. Lightweight and small, and with the pulsing led you can tell it's working at a glance. I will be purchasing a second one for my motorcycle.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Works ok

      Keeps my snowmobile battery charged up which is what it is designed for, but it's no battery charger if the battery needs a charge.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Battery Tender

      I like things simple, this charger is small enough to fit where ever I've needed to place it and it also come with extra parts (easy connect) to keep attached to your battery for the next year. You don't have to spend a lot lof money to get resuslts. This unit has never let me down. I have many of them: sports cars, jet ski's,boat batteries & motorcycles. The unit fits on the barn foundation just perfectly and the cord has plenty of reach. I guess it would be possible to use one charger for more than one battery, but for the price and for convenience each of my toys has it's own.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
