    I am a female with little knowledge of automobile engines. I also have a fear of electricity, like most people. I watched the on-line video and when the charger arrived I was able to connect it and start the charging without any help from anyone. The shipment was on time, the packing was very well done, and the item was exactly as described on the on-line website of Advanced Auto Parts.com. I would highly recomment this battery charger to anyone, whether they are a less informed casual driver or an automobile mechanic. The 3 charges, trickle, 12 amp and "jump start" are all one would need in a battery charger. I am very please with my purchase.

    Item description inaccurate

    Comments about Autocraft 1/12/75 Amp 12-Volt Automatic Battery Charger/Maintainer:

    Probably great for 12V batteries but does not charge 6V batteries as the product description states. Instructions specify to not use for charging 6V batteries.

        Comments about Autocraft 1/12/75 Amp 12-Volt Automatic Battery Charger/Maintainer:

        I have used this charger to charge and maintain battery in a truck and suv. Charged battery quickly and when used to maintain battery it did not over charge the battery . I have not used it to help jump start a vehicle yet, but with 75 amps it should work fine. The charger has a little bit of weight to it so it probably has good transformers in it which is the heart of a good battery charger . It is good that you can use on different types of batteries such as conventional, maintenance free/AGM, or deep cycle batteries. This charger should give years of good service.

            One of my kids didn't shut the door completely on our 2nd vehicle and the dome light stayed on. I went out the next morning in sub-zero weather to a dead battery. I researched this unit online and made arrangements to pick it up ay my local store. Battery was charged to the point that I could start the car in less than an hour. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a solid multi-use charger

              I use my car for short trips twice a week. Didn't want to buy a new battery. This fit the bill perfectly. I especially like the slow charge option. In the garage overnight and I'm good to go. Great product.
