Great charger, got here just in time, left a light on in my car the night before and had a dead battery. Took it right out of the package and used the start mode option. Car started right up, didnt have to wait for it to charge like the old style chargers. Great price, more than satisfied. Thanks

Alright, should gone with automatic unit

Lacked current to start my car (RE Engine), but seems fine for other applications.

          This battery charger is the best bang for the buck, But in todays world where we want everything done for us this is not the best choice. This is a manual battery charger you have to monitor it or it will cook a battery so experience is a requirement, if you can handle that you won't be disappointed. Excellent unit does 12v and 6v with engine start.

          I used this to bring a 12V ATV battery back to charge. The very cold weather this winter almost killed a new ATV battery. I will be looking for a Battery Charger Maintenance unit as I keep the ATV outside all winter.
