I'm Familiar with this charger, I work at an Auto Repair shop, and we bought one as a tester, I've brought back at least a dozen batteries from the fringe, and have put them to work as storage for an RV with a 100W solar panel. After desulfating with this charger the "fixed" batteries perform great... I've not had to replace a one in the 2 years I've had them on the system. Very impressed with the chargers ability to bring some batteries from the scrap pile.
This is my second similar charger. The first one was a marine-grade charger for use on boats. The environment on most boats is humid to damp, thus the marine-grade requirement. I had that unit for 40-years before it quit. I'm hoping this unit is built with the same quality as was the last one. Since you can use this charger on three types of batteries, it fills most people's needs. I like that you can charge with three different amperage levels. The slower you charge a battery, the less likely you risk overheating the battery.
My previous one was not a desulfator, so that is a plus. As a maintainer, my previous unit did a wonderful job. If this charger has the same build quality and charges the same as my previous charger, it was money well spent.
The free multimeter is a joke. It shows voltage and amperage increasing while not connect to anything. It is a nice touch to supply a free gift, but it would be even better if it worked.
I was looking for a GOOD battery charger and this one was recommended to me by a real avid car friend (like 5 or 6 BMWs, a Porsche, and home garage with a lift, etc..). I ended up with a GREAT battery charger. I am the only driver in my house with four cars to rotate driving. The cars are older with some "aging" issues so my batteries get somewhat abused but this charger has come to my rescue. Awesome product.
I have purchased two of these one for my cars and one for my 48 vet golf cart. This is one great product. I do not use the battery charger that is normally used for a golf cart. For one thing, the standard charger comes on "full Blast" and heats the batteries. Not a good thing.
This is, by far, the best battery minder/charger/refurbisher I’ve ever used. It will revive batteries that most would give up for dead. These particular models are getting harder and harder to find, though, so I’ll be protecting this one with great diligence.
This product is superior to all other chargers.
This is my second unit. I use it to maintain two cheap 6 volt batteries (in series) on my backup generator. The first batteries lasted 6 years. The second set only lasted just short of four years. Thought the charger was working but found out two months after I installed the new batteries (that went dead)that it wasn’t (leds were on making me think it was working). Second set probably just needed charging. Anyway, I could buy two sets of batteries for what this unit cost, but, I gives me pease of mind that my generator will start if I’m not home to play mechanic if my family needs it.
