Battery Minder Charger
This is a great little charger/ maintainer. I have one battery I am charging now and it is being maintained properly! The only thing I don't like about this product is the connection points. I wish there were more for other batteries instead of charging them in parallel.

This is an excellent product. I used it to maintain 6 deep cycle batteries and it helps extend their life

Have had no problems, works great, easy to use. I like that it Automatically detects defective batteries and rejects them so you don't waste time trying to charge it.

Too little bang fo
Does a good job but there are a number of others out there that do just as good and are cheaper.

I bought this charger after seeing a review on it in the GWRRA motorcycle magazine. After having the charger for about a year I noticed that it would not stay on the type of battery I would select. I called the manfg. of the charger and they said just send it back and I did. It took about a week and they sent a new on back to me. All is well with the charger now and it just stays on the battery that I want to maintain. It will not overcharge any battery. I also use the Batter Tender brand and this Battery Minder is just as good if not better.

Devil is in the details
I use these in my battery store and it is excellent for breathing life into old batteries. Seems gimmicky but is not. I do however want to set a few things straight.
1. You can charge any type of lead acid battery-true but you can not different types at the same time. At first this was a real letdown until I realized it really doesn’t matter because…
2. Connect up to 6 batteries at a time-well not if you read the instructions! Charging instructions say never charge more than one battery at a time because to do so might be unsafe. But at least you can maintain multiple batteries at same time right? ONLY if all the batteries are in identical condition such as those purchased and used together (connected)their entire life.
Most people purchase this for personal use and rarely have they multiple batteries to charge at same time so probably not an issue. No matter what I will continue to use this product because it works! I have saved many customers a lot of money and in doing so assured they return to my store when the time inevitably comes that they will need a new battery.

Don't Get It Wet/ Not watertight/ Not Weatherproof
Great Charger it does wonders, it also claims to be "watertight" and "waterproof". If that was true I would still have mine working just two years after i bought it. I used it to charge my boat battery , it was outside but under the Bimini Top (boat canvas cover) the wind blew some rain in under the cover, but not much. I
know this because my other charger (not watertight)was right next to it and it still works great.

I bought one of these because it gets old replacing batteries in small equipment. This unit really does the trick every few days I just move it to another battery and so far all mine have lasted through more than one season Including some sealed batteries I use to operate my sprayer.
That alone it has paid for it's self vs battery replacements not to mention the hassle of going to the store to get them and the delay in getting things done.
