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.

          First charger was defective, call the store was told the had another so come and get it. Arrived at store and was told they had sold the replacement and they would have another the next day by 4pm. I was upset as they knew that I was coming, yet they sold the last unit in stock, plus my car was down for one more day very inconvenient.

            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.

                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.

                    I purchased the charger today. When I switched to fast charge mode (75A),the battery level needle swings back and forth from 0 to fully charge. When I switched it back to 2A, it is in charge mode. Is it a defected unit that I need to bring it back to the store?

                      A:

                      I'd be happy to help you with that! This product will work with AGM batteries which is usually the style most marine batteries are. It is designed for AGM, Lithium or 12V batteries. Follow the charging instructions from the battery manufacturer to avoid damaging the battery. There are only a few batteries that I know of that can not have a higher amperage charge, so the probability is that you should be able to use a normal charge setting.
