BatteryMINDer Charger/Maintainer/Desulfator System - Model# 1500
I have used the older version for 3 or 4 years, it only puts out 1 amp. It works fine, but the 1500 brings the battery up to maintanence charge faster. my lawn mower battery is going on it's 4th year.

Working as promised
Not sure how long I'll have to use this to really know how well it works, maybe a couple of years for the full effect. So far it has worked very well. One concern I had was if it would charge the dual batteries in my large diesel tractor. Not a huge test, but I started the tractor, backed it into the shed and shut it off, so it couldn't have recharged itself. I put the batteryminder on and it charged it overnight. I did also buy the 2.0 amp version just recently, as I wanted a 2nd unit and figured for the large dual batteries maybe the 2 amp might be better. Very satisfied with both units.

This is a good product that I have used for many years. It has extended the life of many batteries.

Battery Minder Model 1500
Used the VDC battery maintainers for years for my M'cycle, Atv, Trolling Mtr Battery, Pickup Truck and now needed one for the newly procured Honda Generator Battery. Ordered two, one for an extra to have on hand for whatever comes next. Good Product!

This unit is well-designed, and comfortable to use. Salvaging a borderline battery, if even possible, requires great patience. I would not hesitate to use this unit on a functional, serviceable battery.
I have been working with one auto battery that was not performing well (it sat too long over a winter in a vehicle without being charged). I don't know if this battery will ever again be a dependable unit, but I do notice, after a couple of weeks of 72 hour cycles, that specific gravity is slightly improving in the low cell.
If you don't have a floating glass bulb battery specific gravity tester/hydrometer, you should probably order one/get one when you start using this unit for accurate measurements of progress (I don't think Northern carries this type of hydrometer).

Brought it back
Initially battery read 11.9 volts. After four or five faults where it couldn't fully recharge the battery it was able to get it to hold a proper charge. Take your time and it will do its job.

excellant maintainer, does not overheat battery.
I have 2 deep cycle batteries hooked up in parallel to keep charged and it does excellent job of keeping them fully charged. Does not boil battery.( heat is what kills batteries when charging). Best to charge each battery fully before hooking up in parallel with maintainer to keep both batteries tip top. For single battery just hook up to maintainer and plug in.

This battery minder rejuvenated the battery of a battery powered hand truck and added life to the battery. Holds charge longer now. I would recommend it and plan to buy more.

Having studied a number of different battery maintainers, I decided to try the BatteryMINDer 1500. I read the instructions, made the connections, and found its operation as advertised. The unit display was very helpful in observing the condition of my battery during every step of the charging and maintaining process. I am very satisfied with this product and fully recommend it.
