We have two rechargeable power vehicles that we have here for the grandchildren. One is a Peg truck and the other a Power Wheels ATV.
This charger is perfect because it has plugs that fit both units. The charger gets the battery up to 80% power in about three hours, to get to 100% is pretty much an overnight process for the large capacity 12V 12 Amp Hour batteries both vehicles have.
The charger gets very warm during the initial heavy charge but then runs cool for the final top off charge.
Based on my knowledge of lead acid battery chemistry ( I am a chemist) this charger takes pretty good care of the battery. The higher amp initial charge followed by a lower amp trickle charge is the correct way to return the lead sulfate that goes into the acid back to the lead plates. If large sulfate crystals form they short out the plates and that's the end of the battery. The charging profile of this charger minimizes their formation.
Some of the reviews on this charger are not good. I am suspicious that the problems attributed to the charger were actually due to marginal batteries. If this charger won't charge your battery I would try using a regular automotive charger. I would not recommend constant use of a full size charger but it might be able to get one of these batteries working again.
For longest battery life do not store the batteries over the winter in an area that gets freezing temperatures and make sure you recharge them at least every other month. It's all about preventing sulfate crystals.

Bought this charger due to lack of trust of original charger. Charges quick and doesn't require constant monitoring of time plugged in. Even brought back a friends power wheelz battery that wouldn't charge on the stock one. Great buy and works as advertised.

We bought our son the PW Dune Racer for his third birthday next week. We got home with it late and I painfully dug through the box to pull out the battery, knowing it required an 18 hour initial charge, before hiding the rest in the attic. I've had a few days to tinker and learn about lead-acid batteries to determine the best solution and decided on the Shumacher CR-1 as it would be plug-and-play with Power Wheels' 12v lead-acid battery (ease of use).

Just completed that '18-hour' initial charge in under 4 hours (hit 80% quick charge in 2-hours). Now it is sitting in 'maintain' mode, where it could be left for eternity and the internal micro-processor would sense when it needs a voltage adjustment. That one that came with the toy... well just be sure your battery is in a fire-proof box in case you forget to unplug after the recommended maximum of 30 hours.

The included docs recommend you complete the full 100% charge at least every three charges... so if your kid is ridding all day, you could do two quick charges before leaving it on over night.

Right now you can get this on Amazon for about 1/2 the cost of a replacement battery- I paid up for the 'sold through Amazon' option to get it on-time (also want their customer service).

I'll update this review on durability if for some reason we experience any problems. I'll point out the charger gave off a 'burning' smell initially but it died off and I think that will be a first-time thing. It also had a pretty loud squeal-noise while charging, but it will go in the garage soon, so that won't matter.

==2-Month Update==
Still very pleased with this purchase.

I found about this product after contacting Schumacher's customer support about the correct setting to use in one of their bigger chargers (which I've been using for a couple of years with great results!), when charging a small battery for a Power Wheels. The customer support rep suggested looking into this particular model because it has been designed exactly for that purpose, and I am happy to admit that she was 100% right! The different connectors, the plug-in-and-forget operation, etc., make it the best charger you can get for small batteries. I can charge Power Wheels and Peg Perego batteries just by switching the end connectors, and they both last a loooooooooong time after being charged. I expect that this charger will also help extend battery life, since it's supposed to charge them the right way and avoid overcharging.

I bought this after borrowing my father's same charger for about 4 months. Charges the 12 volt batter for our riding toy. Display indicates when 80% charged and 100% charged. Cords on both ends are pretty good length, making it convenient to leave on the work bench in the garage and stretch down to the battery for charging. I've had other cheaper chargers that haven't held up or don't even seem to work from the get go. This one seems built to last.

Worked great with an older (2009) Disney Princess Quad that I bought at our local Goodwill for $4.00 the day after Christmas. Charged quickly. The grand kids love it!! Had a hard time finding a charger that matched up. Took my chance when i noticed that this one looked right. Am glad i did!
