This is the best charger i have ever had. Easy to use, and with great "Fail safes" to prevent battery charger and most importantly battery damage. I use it to keep my Motorcycle battery charged in Winter and this is a great charger with easy to use attachments. I don't have to take the battery out of the Bike and now, with the special attachment I don't even have to remove the seat of my Harley to charge the battery. It will also help if the battery runs low in Spring when I don't use the bike as often. If you own a motorcycle this is the charger you want.
I checked several websites for a battery box thet was NHRA legal, was well built, but still wouldn't break the bank. This was by far the best. All the other options were either plastic or at least 3 times the price. If there was any drawback, it was in the difficulty of finding it. I did not expect to find this product on Overstock.com.
I own a very busy small engine repair shop and we forever getting machines in with bad batteries. Units with HydroStatic transmissions (nearly all modern units) can be very hard to push. We have a full size jump starter that will start a full size diesel tractor trailer (400 CCA) but it is heavy and awkward. I have been looking at these new "mini-me" jumpers with skepticism for some time and I finally jumped the gun and purchased this unit. overall it is fantastic but with a couple qualifyers. The biggest downer is that you cannot crank the engine for more than 5 seconds (which is plenty to start a car) which many times is not long enough for the mechanical fuel pumps to get fuel from the rear tank to the carburetor if it has been stting for a while. However, since a lawn tractor starter will only draw about 100 amps, I am able to crank for at least 10 seconds without issue or the unit shutting down to protect itself. So, this is not often an issue starting lawn and garden tractors. That said, I don't get why they cant use heavier jumper cables such as 4 gauge vs the 8 or 10 gauge included...maybe to protect the battery from discharging to rapidly and overheating? That said, this unit is so convenient compared to the 20 IB. tank we have been using for years. It weighs only a pound or two and cranks those tractors over as if they have a new battery in them. It never seems to go dead and will crank over at least 10 if not 20 units before it must be charged. Then there are all the little bonuses such as the ability to charge phones, a handy flashlight, auto shut-off when the phone is fully charged and I tested it running my laptop, a 17" core i5 HP workbook and it ran the machine for about 2 hrs...very handy. All in all, this unit is used constantly in the shop for charging the employees phones to jump starts and it has performed flawlessly. Outstanding product and a big Kudo's to Overstock for selling a quality product. Buy it, you'll love it! Kevin, Kevins Small Engine and Tractor Service, 03908
