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

Die Hard charger

I needed a reliable way to charge the battery for my ********** lawn mower and this product was to replace one my Dad had purchased back in the 70's. Did a quick job and was easy to use

Battery charger? Really? I don't know what this is, but it's no charger.

The box says this is a battery charger. I call shenanigans. If I could rate this zero stars, I would. My motorcycle (you know, those two-wheeled machines with VERY small batteries?) has been plugged in since 8:00pm last night. Charging light on. I went to see if I could start it at noon today. AT NOON! Headlight comes on weak, and bike won't start. No starter clicking. Nothing. NOTHING after being on this so-called battery charger for 18 hours. Nothing but a weak headlamp. After 18 hours. On a small motorcycle battery. Did I mention it's been charging for 18 %$#@ing HOURS!? 18 hours. Motorcycle battery. No start. This charger is ****. Don't waste your time or money. By the way, my bike is a 750, so I'm not asking much of this battery. I rode my bicycle to Sears yesterday to get this %$#@ing piece of **** because my motorcycle wouldn't start (6 month old battery. Significant Other left the key in the ignition on Saturday, so don't blame this on an old, worn out battery).

Diehard Charger/Maintainer

I have 3 collector cars and 6 bikes in the garage. All with chargers. I've have a combination of Battery Tenders and Sears brand. Both are quality and both last for years. Even though always plugged in and doing their job. Never an issue.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great charger

Great dependable charger. It works great and comes with three different attachments for different charging options. I wanted a simple charger without a bunch of digital readouts and this is the one.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent if used as designed

This is not a battery charger. It is a battery maintainer designed to keep a seldom used battery charged and if you use it for its intended purpose, it works great.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Happy Happy Happy

this item is a smaller version of a battery charger with the same capabilities of a larger one. It doesn't have any adjustments, but it worked great for charging my R.V. batteries on the road. Loved it !

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Worked for our purposes.

Our Ford Econoline's battery drains when it is not driven daily. We got tired of jumping it and needed something to keep the battery charged. This item worked perfectly.

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.

Easy to order and pick up.

I love the "Deal of the day" and have purchased several items at substantial savings by watching the daily deal of the day on line. The recent purchase is an item that I have been watching for since last summer. It fills the need at a very good reduction in the regular price.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
