Quality...love it

I have had this charger over 9 years now. It has worked great on many different batteries (cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles, lawn mowers). I swear the bad reviews are guys that don't know how to use it or got some of the flukes (which I am sure B+D and would replace no problem).

Pros: Easy to use Durable Long life span Works

Cons: The small area on the back of the charger to store the cables is just not big enough to really fit them all in there (no big deal)

GREAT PRODUCT

I've had this battery charger well over ten years and it works great never had a problem with it the charger won't charge a battery with less than two volts in it the charger does not no how old the battery is or why there is only two volts in it this is a safety feature the charger is automatic and will diagnose battery condition and will select the proper charge rate best for the battery if you manually select a higher rate of charge it will stop the charging process and show a fault if you leave your lights and kill the battery then get some cables jump it off and give the battery a good black and decker smart charge when you can no new battery comes fully charged some have only 65% charge put your black and decker charger on it and get full service out of the battery

Pros: its performance the parameters set for this charger are industry standards

Cons: it would be nice if it came with a storage case the cooling fan is noisy

Works for me!

Owned for about two months. Have used this several times and works well.... follows the procedure in the manual and does the job. Not overly powerful but good for top off charges and maintaining.

Pros: Easy to use. beeps it's stages. Small in size.

Cons: Light in weight, makes it seem under built. Clamps are light duty. No meter for charge status.

Don't Waste Your Money

Like HiVue17a, I bought the B&D 6/4/2 Smart Charger to float/maintain my batteries. It never quite worked right and would often not stay on the setting you put it. I should have returned it right away and did not.

You are better off buying a charger from these guys: http://batterytender.com/automotive.html

I bought their Waterproof 800 International. It works great, indoors and out. It has the three stage charging and just simply works. (...and a 3 year warranty to boot)

Pros: Nice form factor. The spot for the cables is a great touch.

Cons: To bad it doesn't work. B&D, you had your chance. If you can't reliably build something as simple as a battery charger, why should I risk spending my money on your other products.

It cost more than not having a charger but performs the same.

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: nice options

Cons: Does not charge dead batteries.
