Only tested on 4 batteries of different types and sizes, but charged each to full capacity, then automatically switched to trickle charge. There is a small fan located inside of the unit, which switches off after charge cycle is completed.
Very easy to connect to my motorcycle, easy to operate and works like a charm. It has a built-in fan to keep it cool and didn't expect that but that indicates that it was made with quality in mind. The extra cord came in very handy .
My dad love it ... he uses it for his motorcycle

Bought this low amp/maintenance charger for my motorhome, and with all the accessories this was perfect.What sold me on this charger was the 3 different connection options (alligator clips, terminal connectors and 12V accessory plug). I had just bought a new battery for the motorhome, and I wanted to make sure it kept a charge, so when installing it, I also attached the terminal connectors. Not because I was expect to use them, but since they were included, I figured I might as well use them.Using this in a motorhome is perfect, especially considering all the 110V outlets inside, so I used the included 10' extension cord and the 12V accessory plug, and I charged the battery. No wires hanging out from under the hood, and no long extension cord draped across the driveway. This was perfect!Initially the fan in this charger was very loud when charging from about 12.5V, but a few hours later, when the target voltage had been reached, everything quieted down.I can't ever see a need for the alligator clips, unless I lend out the charger, but the other two was exactly what I was looking for.
Bought 2 for myself, one for my mother , It is the best , for keeping motor home battery fully charged no matter what the out side temp. is. Saves me the cost, from having to replace batteries every other year. The price will make giving these as gifts to everyone I know AWESOME .........................
I bought this when my battery ran down with the cold weather and human error. I got this one because it had a input for the cigarette lighter so I didn't have to mess with the battery itself. I plugged it into my Ford Explorer and 5 hours later it was charged. I disconnected it and the car started right up. This item is easy to use, the instructions are easy to read, and pretty much anyone could figure it out. This model does not have a quick start option it is just a charger.
I have tried several charger /maintainers and found them not very reliable. I haven't had the unit very long, but I have had no problems yet. The other units usually gave out rather quickly, but the Stanley unit has been great so far. The only thing I did not like was the fact that if you ever had a power failure you have to reset the unit since it shuts itself off. If you leave the maintainer on a seasonal vehicle that you don't use much means you have to remember to go out and turn the unit back on.
every man needs one
Works well, unfortunately, for a device that is meant to be used long term and probably in a somewhat obscure location (back of the garage or storage barn, etc) whenever the power goes out (even for a second) it doesn't power back up by itself. You have to remember to go out an push the start button again.A really poor design imho.I'm using it to maintain a 3 battery 210 amp backup power bank and it handles it well.
The only thing wrong is that it does not desulfate. I went to the website of the maker and was told it does not have a feature for that in a corporate email.It's great outdoors. It does work well if you have grid connected power.At this moment in time its a solar panel system and a generator. The batteries desulfate sometimes this way and I needed that.It's great for adverse weather too. Also. It does not say what ah is best for each mode.It's leaving the guessing up to you. The device should just have a charge on button and off. This makes you wonder if you have been using the right charging mode because there are two.
I got this for my boat, seems to work pretty good. I use eyelets on trolling battery and can leave the clamps on my cranking battery. great price compared to marine on board chargers.
It will fully charged a dead battery in about 2-3 hour

Unit was used once fine. Second time plugged in, made buzzing noise and was unplugged- would not work after tgat
a great buy!
the chargers are very nice!
I have had this for about a month.works like advertised-charges and maintains the car battery.great price.came with various connectors.Looks like its built to last
Description says "bonus extension cord," but there is no bonus extension cord. The box doesn't even show a bonus extension cord.The charger is supposed to come with three attachments (alligator clips, terminal connectors, and cigarette lighter plug-in adapter). There was no cigarette lighter plug-in adapter in the box.Include all of the pieces, and this product would be fine.
It seems to work just fine. The auto and motorcycle settings are nice to have. I've used it on both, and it works. It has a fan inside, so you have to make sure it has good ventilation for the incoming and outgoing air.
