Product Description

This fully automatic microprocessor controlled 75 ampere engine start is perfect for emergency starting. It features a 5 ampere slow charge, and a 10-20 ampere fast charge, which has self-adjusting, variable charge rates for everyday charging needs and maintaining your battery in peak condition. Charges and automatically desulfates and restores car, truck, RV, farm equipment, AGM, gel cell and deep-cycle batteries. A secondary feature is the 3 ampere slow charge for charging and maintaining small batteries, motorcycle batteries, ATV batteries, snowmobile batteries and lawn tractor batteries. With a built-in digital voltmeter/tester, you can easily diagnose problems. An auto voltage detection means the charger automatically determines whether the connected battery is a 6 volt battery or a 12 volt battery.

Overall I am happy with the purchase, and the product works well. That being said, there are a few things that I found slightly annoying. It does not have an on/off switch, just a cord to plug in, and it is louder than I would like, however I probably have unreasonable expectations. I charged a large car battery from 6V to full charge overnight on the fast charge setting, the cables that run to the battery terminals got hot to the touch for the first couple hours of charging which made me a little concerned. I also noticed that power cord seems a little short, if you aren't parked within about 6 ft of an outlet, you might want to think about getting a nice heavy gauge extension cord. It is manufactured in Mexico which is a step up from China, The overall quality is reasonable, and you get a lot of features for $60. I am happy with it in spite of the small nit picky things I listed, they were just things that surprised me a little.

I've been using this charger for a few months now. I use it to maintain an Optima Yellow Top AGM battery on my race car (no alternator), a standard car battery on my trailer (winch) and have used it to charge my 12v lawnmower battery. All have had no issues charging. I don't typically use "fast charge" unless I absolutely need to and just use the turtle charge for day to day charging. The race car battery is charged weekly.

The selector lights are dim and I do have problems with them in sunlight or any relatively bright room. I just cup my hand over it until I can see it.

Also someone mentioned there is no "off" function. You have to keep pressing the selector button. After the last one, "crank" mode, it turns it off and shows OFF on the display.

As far as the percentages of charge I have not had really any issues with accuracy. I guess if you want a dead on accurate battery charger there are some that are $200 I'm sure. When my lawn mower battery was dead it showed a charge of 13%. I charged it up to about 60% and the mower would crank and run. I have not had any issues with it showing 100% charge and going into "trickle" mode.

Don't listen to the negative reviewers.. This is a good charger. I have used it many times since buying it and it works great. In fact, I had originally bought one from a box store for myself, so this review is actually about that one BUT I ordered this one for a present for someone since mine worked so good. You need a charger.. this one works good.. Have used the rabbit setting a lot and the start engine several times. Has always worked.. Yes the lights could and should be brighter on the settings panel.. Just hold your hand over them and you can see them.. Thats the only con for me.. But it's no deal breaker. The charger does what it should.

This is the charger that walmart carries, and I would go another route for a qaulity charger. The one review about the % of charge not being accurate is dead on. It starts to update, then stops, then you stop it and start it again and its 95% full charge. Then is doesn't update, check it again in an hour and its 89%. It will charge your battery, just you have no idea when it is fully charged. I returned the first one that I got bc it didn't update at all, no this next one i have does only some of the time, and it is never accurate. Go another route and avoid the frustration. Will keep this updated when i get a new one.

I got mine at Walmart, and when it failed, I exchanged it for another one, which worked for a couple of charges. Besides for failing, when they did work, it took forever to charge a battery on the occasions that it's electronics actually realized it was a 12 volt battery (these chargers detect a nearly dead 12 volt battery as 6 volts). And they even sometimes would actually start charging the battery when you tell them to, as opposed to the normal refusing to do anything. Wow - how do they keep selling these?

So, I'm not going to keep exchanging this piece of junk for another. Think I'll try a different brand and never darken Schumacher's doorstep again.

Yes, it charges batteries. Would I buy another one? Probably not. While the packaging proclaimed a 15 amp charging current, reading through the manual reveals that it will not charge at 15 amps at a 100% duty cycle for long enough to charge a car battery. It does fine charging group 27 marine batteries overnight, but chokes trying to charge a 27 sized car battery. The leads and connectors get warm to the touch, and the unit shut itself off a couple times while charging the car battery. I assume this is due to the car battery's lower internal resistance compared to the marine battery. When charging, the screen will read "6" or "12" instead of showing the actual voltage. Finally, the indicator lights are very dim. They are so dim as to be nearly impossible to see outdoors even when shaded. Two and a half stars.

Just what the Doctor ordered. I had another of the same brand that took legs and walked off. My son had one like the one I got now and he raved so much about it that I figures that I would get a comparable one. I am happy that I did.

Really thought I was getting a top notch charger here, My Craftsman charger/starter dies after 15 years of tough service so I went with this unit. First huge complaint - On such a nice unit they use the cheapest battery cable clamps I've ever seen. The springs are very weak, the ends small and make horrible contact. AND they are just metal not copper like they should be...they are the weakest link of this unit and the most important.
Second is it's ability to start and charge. It can start it if your battery is just below the starting threshold say 11.3 volts. But if it's really drained ( like my wifes battery was ), down to 7 volts it hasn't a chance.
Third again on my wifes battery, I put it on fast charge. Came back to the heated garage in two hours and it indicated 12V - 100%. Excellent I said..undid the charger from the battery, hopped in, nothing. DEAD.
Reconnected it, put it on fast charge again, read 7V -2%.
Gave up, pushed it out of garage through 6" of snow quite a ways to get into a position to jump to another vehicle. Connected the cables ( with awesome gripping copper clamps ), after a few minutes started right up and been fine since.
Craftsman would have started it and fast charged it easily. I'd like to say I got what I paid for but it wasn't cheap and I expected WAY more product for the price.
