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.

junk
I have bought about 4 of these in the past 2 years and each one has never lasted more than a few months. The first two I dropped from a height of about 3 feet. They are my fault (even though they should be able to take some abuse) but the other two the condition lights stop working and it freezes on the green fully charged light or no lights at all. I hooked one up the other week to my Harley. It showed a green light. Left it plugged in. Went to start the bike after two weeks. The green light was still on. Guess what?....Dead flippin battery. I also have a battery cutout switch so it wasn't anything on the bike. These things are junk.......I buy alot of Chraftsman stuff but these are terrible.........thanks

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.

Does the job!

I got this to charge a completely dead battery. It worked so far. No issues, it comes with multiple adapters to charge a battery which is good.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good Die hard Product!!!

I purchased this battery maintainer for a car that is garaged over the winter. I have had to replace batteries in the past and this maintainer was suggested to me. The price was good and appears to work well!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

DieHard Battery Charger/Maintainer- Good deal

I purchased this charger/maintainer for my tractor and quad, used on both works great and the fact that it has a auto shut off is great... Not al of them does so you run the risk of over charging or worse. If you can catch this one on sale it`s a good deal it does what it says, taken PROPER care of it should last for years.

Diehard Battery Maintainers are great

I bought 2 Diehard Battery Maintainers several years ago and like them so much that I got 3 more. Just recently obtained 2 more for a total of Seven (7) of the product. They all have performed well year-round in hot and cold environments. Have saved a bundle in costs to replace batteries on my fleet of vehicles, some of which are idle for long periods of time. Every one of the Maintainers have been working daily since originally purchased, with no issues. A great product.

Good product

I bought this item, as I had another version of it for many years. Lets just say that my puppy liked the cords lol/ The items works perfect for me since I have 3 vehicles and batteries are expensive.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
