    VEC1089ABD charger
             
    I bought a Vector AEC1088A It look just like B and Ds VEC1089ABD and with the model number I'm assuming that Black and Decker either bought the company or Vector is making them for B & D.
    Pros:

    I bought this charger to carry in our motorhome in case we need it along the way and to use one our mowers.

    Cons:

    Like most of the people on here the big problem in not charging when the batteries are low. It's more of a maintainer and not a charger. I also don't like the AC cord its way to stiff. It can't be rolled up and put into the storage pocket.

    Ill keep it simple. I bought a battery charger to charge batteries. Every battery I hook it up to says code f03 inter cell open and it wont charge. I bring it back where I bought it and charge it and give it back to me because it is a good battery.
    Pros:

    it held my trash can down so it didn't blow away

    Cons:

    nothing

    VEC1093DBD Does what it is advertised to do
             
    This model number is a little different than the ones rated so far. It is a 4/10/20/40 charger. Purchased in Republic of Panama. Used to charge four marine batteries. Like several of the others, the unit failed at one year. I felt this was due to salt air environment. I took it to the service center and much to my surprise and pleasure, I was given a certificate for a new unit. I got a new one exactly the same as old. If it fails again I will take it back again.
    Pros:

    Multiple charge rates, de-sulfate and equalize cycles. It really did "save" two of my batteries by careful use of the features. Obviously, the best part is that they replaced the unit when it failed.

    Cons:

    The first one failed at one year!

    Good Unit
             
    It does not recharge dead or very low voltage batteries, however you may 'trick it' to start a recharge of those batteries, by boosting the battery with booster cables to provide the minimum charge for the charger to recognize and 'kick in' with the charging cycle. This method has worked very well for me. Cheers!!
    Pros:

    Ease of operation.

    Cons:

    Needs a minimum charge in battery to operate.

    Horrible equipment
             
    Like the others said. If the batter becomes completely drained this is no more then a paper weight. I dont know about you guys, but I don't normally charge a battery when it's actually got power. The only time I use one is if something looses a charge. And in that situation, this product completely fails.
    Pros:

    it's small and stores in trash can nicely.

    Cons:

    It's useless to the average consumer.

    It is a very good general purpose charger.
             
    It works great for everyday recharge, as long as the battery is within specs of the charger.
    Pros:

    Lightweight and easy to use, along with the other options like; Alternator test, Battery voltage, and battery recondition.

    Cons:

    I have an RV and several times something was left on and a few times the battery was completely discharged. This electronic charger will not charge a battery that is fully discharged, all it does is give a F-02 code (stating it is a bad battery}.

    Overall terrible charger.
             
    I will never buy Black & Becker battery charter again. This charger only charges batteries that have some charge. If you leave your lights on or something that completely drains the battery this charger give a fault light and will not charge. A charger that doesn't charge dead batteries. Brilliant design!
    Pros:

    multiple amp settings

    Cons:

    It does NOT CHARGE dead batteries.

    poor lifespan
             
    i used this charger for 3 years and it was great. I got it out of my RV last week and tested a battery. Gave a code that my battery was shorted out, i replaced the a 7 year old battery without further testing and the next day i went to top off my new battery and it said it was shorted. I then used a friends digital charger and it works. Apparently my charger has failed, and I replaced a battery that was still good. I am trying to get the charger fixed as it has a 5 year warranty.
    Pros:

    charges AGM batteries

    Cons:

    lifespan

    i used this charger for about a year and it was great, i got it out of my enclosed race trailer one day and it said my battery was shorted out, i replaced the battery without further testing and the next day i went to top off my new battery and it said it was shorted. apparently my charger is shot.like i said it was a great charger but i dont think i will replace it with the same product, its a bit costly for only a years use.
