Long story short: It simply doesn't work.
It will not fully charge either of the two batteries that came with the trimmer although the charger that came with the unit charges the batteries just fine. It makes no difference how long you leave the battery on this charger - it won't fully charge it. In fact (get this!) I can take a fully charged battery from the original charger, put it on this charger and within a couple hours it will deplete the charge to roughly 1/2 strength - it takes the charge OUT of a fully charged battery!
This will only charge the batteries to about 1/3 charge. Sorry, but this is junk.
I've tried to get my money back, but Amazon (which I'm usually pleased with) but they're obviously better at selling items than accepting returns, even defective items. They've refused a refund, although I've only had this 'doorstop' 3 weeks...
Wish I didn't have to give it any stars at all, but Amazon won't allow that, and they have no 'negative' start, so this gets a really undeserved 1 star - it really should be minus 3 stars.
I can't recommend which charger you buy - but don't get this one.
Hope this helps someone as I just wasted my money.

The failures of these chargers made me curious as to what actually happened to cause them to stop working. I cut open the cases on two of the chargers and found that both had a failure of the same diode in each unit. The bad diodes are easily spotted because of a darkened area around them from heat build up. At Radio Shack I purchased two replacement diodes for about $1.04. I replaced the diodes in both chargers and they now work ok. I have only used each to charge one battery so don't know how long the repair will last. Perhaps the original diode didn't have enough capacity, but that's only a guess. When I cut open the two remaining chargers, I am confident that they also will have burned out diodes.
Needless to say, I am unhappy with the quality of B & D chargers. The charger cases can be resealed using epoxy such as JB Weld.
I suggest if you buy any battery operated product that you make sure it comes with NIMH batteries not NICAD. You can read about the difference between batteries on the internet.

The charger is a piece of junk and fails to recharge an 18 volt battery at all. After several 9 hour charges the battery will drive a weed eater at half speed for about a minute.Published 2 days ago by Lector
No problems with this product. It works as advertised and is currently being used to charge a B&D battery.Published 6 days ago by digiRAMbo
