DieHard Platinum 6V Is Compact With Big Power
DieHard 6v Battery Charger and Maintainer with its 3-amp charge keeps batteries for cars, trucks, ATVs, boats, motorcycles and lawn mowers charged and maintained for you-even on those vehicles with intermittent use. Easily charge your battery by following the precise instructions on the easy to read digital display. The charger is designed for you to connect effortlessly to your battery with multiple connector choices including 50-amp clamps, a 12V accessory plug or ring connectors. This unit is controlled by a microprocessor and programmed to not allow overcharging.

This is a great cheap charger/maintainer! I have a 98 jeep zj 5.9 that stays parked in my garage the majority of its time. The battery is often low from sitting and me opening and closing the doors so much. Ive installed this charger with the ring terminals so that i can quickly hook it up and lower the hood back while it maintains the battery. This charger comes with regular alligator clips, ring terminals, and a cig lighter adaptor. The ring terminals have a weather proof cap that goes over the plug for when its not in use. I bought two of these on dod for $50 shipped. One odd thing ive noticed is once it goes into maintain mode, if you unplug it and plug it back in, it will say 90% or so charged and start charging again. Otherwise, its a nice little charger.
I purchased this when it was on sale. I leave this connected to my car that sits in storage for most of the year. The maintainer works perfectly and as expected.
I tried to charge my car battery, but it will take a long time I guess. It does the maintaining job as indicated on the manual. So far so good, but I will keep using it and update the review.
Hello. I bought this to replaces a Black & Decker 1.2A unit(BM3B). Purchased over a year ago. For my 2010 Yamaha Majesty (YP400). Never had any issues with starting using the B&D. Saw the Diehard on sale. Decided to give it a try. Soon as I plugged it in, The Unit stated my Battery was only at 95%. About 25 minutes later switched from charging to Maintainer. The bike seems to start stronger. Maybe its just me. I do use this "Scooter" as much as possible. Even in 30F weather. Rode in rain on several occasions. I have only used it for about a week. So far so good. Years ago I did try a Schumacher 3A charger/Maintainer on a Honda SilverWing. Battery died 2 weeks later. Bought that bike used. Who knows?? The replacement battery failed too after a week. Dealer blamed the charger. ???? I'll Update if allowed any issues.

I have to regularly charge a motorcycle, two tractor batteries and three jet ski batteries. I hooked up to each battery and it reads the voltage, displays the current charge percentage and then proceeds to charge to 100%. It charges faster then I thought it would. I was never sure whether my batteries were charged or not on my old charger. I bought a second one for my son to use on his tractor battery. Excellent deal!

Got it and hooked it up to an Optima Redtop that I felt was basically fully charged. It spent maybe a half hour charging it and then went into maintenance mode. I noticed that the next time I started the car it seemed to start a little easier then the last few times (it's a project, so it doesn't get run for very long). I then hooked it to a motorcycle battery of unknown charging and it charged it right up. Lastly, I hooked it to a motorcycle battery that was suspected dead. It tried for a little while then noted that the battery was faulty and it shut down. Great little charger and I really like the LED display.
