I have four larger chargers but since buying this one, the others rarely get used. If a battery dies, I'll usually bring out one of the heavier duty chargers but if I'm just concerned because a battery has sat or because I've used a vehicle's accessories too much without the car started, this is the charger I use. You can't ask for more from a status standpoint. It tests the battery, begins the charge, and then let's you know by percent how what progress has been made. I've had one for quite a while and just bought another to use as a maintainer for a tractor that sits a lot.

I purchased on a last minute need to charge my battery. I was wondering why I waited so long to buy it. It slowly charges the battery and once charged switches to maintenance mode. Wish I bought it sooner!!!
I have three of these and they work great at keeping your batteries up to snuff. Also important in a cold climate is keeping the batteries from freezing, which is another reason to get a batter tender like this. Make sure you check yours when you get it home to make sure it works - I got one dud out my three, but it was exchanged happily for a working unit.
So I bought this because my battery decides to Die on my Truck every other week if I don't drive it. I have a HUGE battery let me add 1079 CA and 875 CCA . so after the reviews I did not think it would charge my battery all the way. When I got it I read the instructions right away. It said there are a few different modes and after reading about them. I see why people love this so much. I hooked it up and my battery was only 25 percent charge. It took about 8 hours or so give or take. It was at 95 percent and I had to go so I put it in the truck. And it sounded like the first day I got it. I did not even get into Maintain mode which helps fix cells and such. I own a Motor Craft Battery. OEM for my Truck. And this is a must have if you have a small Draw and cant find it or just having battery issues. Keep your batteries going. I did get it on Sale, but even at 45 dollars its a steel for the Technology.

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.
