It's desulfating cycle is highly effective, it can literally bring a car battery back from the dead and save you the cost of a new one. There's only a few things necessary to make this charger work well: make sure the battery is on a level surface, and heed the somewhat non-traditional grounding methods such as using a 6ft extension cable from the neg. terminal if the battery is unmounted and plugging the neg. to the chassis if it is mounted in the car. You also want to follow the error messages as it will tell you what your battery needs, to be restored or the connection adjusted.
One more thing, watch for Amazon to put this one on special; when I bought it less than a year ago on a promotion it was a real deal at 90+. Also the model I have looks different than this one (mine has no yellow colors). But it has the same model# and as far as I can tell is the same charger.
This charger has a battery conditioning mode which is basically a desulphate cycle and it works. I charged the battery, ran the conditioning cycle a few times on the battery (it takes up to 24 hours per cycle) and it saved the battery. That was over a year ago at this point.
There are many ways a battery can die and sulphate formation is only one. So I am not saying this will fix ANY battery. However, all lead acid battery sulphate to some degree so now the battery conditioning cycle is something I do once a year on all my batteries.
This charger is also a nice charger. It does 2/10/20/40 amp charging and 100 amp start boosting. The cables all store tidy in the back and the handle is, well, handy.
This charger was well worth the extra over a base charger in by opinion.
company which also went bad. I also purchased a 6 Amp version.(Not from Amazon) from Black & Decker
which seems that they took over Vector over 3 years ago
that is still working. I bought a Shuhmacher 15 AMP Marine version for 46.00 usd from Amazon that I am
very happy with.Very light unit and fast charger.
Updated Dec. 2010 - I still use it and it is still as good as new. I love this charger.
I have had this unit for about six months. Each time I use it, it does just fine. However, the first time I used it on a low battery the charger would go to a fault-F02. After reading the directions again, all I needed to do was bump the charging rate from 2 to 10 and the fault went away and the battery charge just fine. I really like the "Recondition Battery" function on this unit. Has saved me money. So why just three stars? The case. It is top heavy! Just a little tap or bump or pull on the cable and over it goes. The fan unit should be mounted on the top. NOT ON THE BOTTOM. When I read how poor the service is with Black and Decker I am scared to use this unit. But what should I expect from a company that send its manufactering over to China and not keep it here in the U.S of A. I believe that if I had it to do all over again, I am not sure if I would buy the VEC1093. Not because of the design of the electronic's, because of the design of the body.
Now, my son is confident he could use it on both our car and our motorcycle. Better product than I expected.
