Accurate power display
Versatile charging settings
Compact design for easier storage and relocation solutions
Large low gauge wiring for both the charger leads and electrical outlet plug
High volume twin ventilation fans and heat dissipating fins on body
Battery clamping jaws may be too large for some applications
Somewhat hard to understand automatic charging logic
No cranking assist
Working in a dealership, the shop provided chargers were completely unreliable and had no advanced charging functions. All it took was one failed charger mid programming, and I ended up spending 3-4 hours to fix a job that ended up paying 0.6 hours. I then decided that was enough and I needed to buy a heavy duty charger of my own. I wanted something compact that could fit in my tool box drawer for security reasons, and to make sure nobody would use it when I wasn't around. I also needed something with flash program functions to keep the voltage steady. This charger answered every need of mine and more. I am not sure who is the real manufacturer of this charger, but I have seen it rebranded under OTC and other automotive specific tool brands. It also uses a very similar charger function interface as the roll around Snapon EEBC500 unit, which is what drew me to this charger. But this charger's main advantage is the flash programming mode which allows the user to set the voltage from 13.0V and higher and the charger will automatically adjust amperage to suit, from 0 to as much as 70 amps. The large fans keep this unit cool which will aid in it's life and the low gauge wiring appears very strong and will hold up. There are sometimes the jaws will not fit on the battery itself and can only be used on the jump start terminals, so depending on different vehicles this may be an issue but it has not been for me as nearly all of the vehicles in the brand I work for have jump start terminals. It is likely possible to switch out the jaws anyhow. One odd thing is the automatic charging function which sometimes I don't understand. I am not sure if it uses the battery's internal resistance or is aiming for 12.6 volts 15.0 volts or what the case is, however I am confident it will not overcharge and "cook" a battery if left alone for hours. Overall I am very happy with this purchase, it is a tool that I feel is reliable and will last a long time as I use it almost everyday. Many technicians in the shop I work ask where I got the charger from as they can see by the build and functions this is a high quality product. Amazon has the most competitive price I found around and the purchase went smooth.
But I found another way that I can get a return on investment with this and it is properly charging/recovering batteries for longer life. I had a previous "Die Hard" smart charger and it was fine for simple charging if you are patient. But, I have a few motorcycles and even on maintainers, I've had battery issues from not always riding them very often. I had a rather expensive Odyssey battery that had seemed to of "died". Wouldn't take a charge on the smart charger, wouldn't hold a charger after jumping the bike, yet it really wasn't that old as far as that type of battery is concerned.
I threw it on this bad boy and listened to the fan go up and down as the machine did all kinds of cycles for hours. I assumed this was the desulfation program or something. But, the battery seems to be happy again though we'll see if it continues to hold out. That right there saved me from chucking a 2-year old Odyssey battery and replacing it with another though which is more money saved. I might just get in the routine of regularly hooking this up to my more sedentary vehicles to make sure they keep a good charge and healthy condition.
Been Using it for more then 2 Years without any MAJOR Hick-ups,
Even SnapOn Mac Matco and many other major tool suppliers only recommend Schumacher but when they do, they just change Sticker with their own brand
MANY MAJOR Dealerships are use Schumacher as well (i seen on many different dealer lots)
The bad side
Clamps are CHEAP, for a first 1~2 months they where straight and on 3rd month of using it, clamps are not longer closing straight
The wires that are coming out of main box are not fully seated and making me worry of moving in and out of box, where the hole is located
When "Programming / Constant Voltage" option is been used it ALWAYS deviates from Displayed values
Example 13.6V in reality cars show as 13.1 ~ 2V or 14V will show as 13.7 ~ 8V
So it always looses 0.2 ~ 0.3 Volts in between
