Title: Fantastic Battery Charger
Content: So much to appreciate about this charger. I got this charger to replace a Black & Decker Battery Maintainer that went bad after just one use....This charger is so simple to operate; just select the battery type, ie. Car Battery, Motorcycle Battery, etc, hook it up to the battery, then plug in the AC & it automatically start the 7 stage process. First stage it goes into DSF mode, or Desulfurization, then goes into 6 other charging processes. I really like that it has a meter which you can even use to check the voltage on your battery before plugging into the AC. Then after you plug it in, the meter lets you know its working, whereas the B&D had no meter, so you never really knew it was connected to the battery properly, or even charging. It also lets you know the Voltage as it is charging, then reads "Full" when complete. They do recommend you let it run an additional 1-2 hrs (Floating charge) after it is Full. When Floating is complete, it will read "Off", then when this is done, the meter will go dark. I saw some comments that the instructions were poorly written, by a 3rd world country (then translated poorly to English) & hard to understand...They must have written a new set of instructions by an English speaking person, because I found these instructions Very Well Written & quite easy to comprehend, for this Non Mechanical person. It does take some hours to charge. It took me about 10-12 hrs to fully charge from an almost dead car battery, then about 2 additional hours for the Floating Process at the end. Note: They do recommend that you Do Not let this charger run unattended for more than 12 hours. I was reluctant to use this when I first got it, as I thought it would be somewhat complicated, but it was Super Easy. Get this charger; you will Love it.
