Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5★ by 407reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Works as advertised. I was cautious after a few minutes of hooking it up as it smelled like somethingwas getting hot, but it stopped, I guess it was just the new 'getting warm' smellfrom the manufacturing process as it went away in a little while and didn't return.It seems like it works as advertised, quite automatic.Wal-Mart had a trusty product, and NOT a piece of junk.I used it on my 50 Olds and My New Yard Tractor. On both it worked well. 03/25/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Maintains a portable bass guitar amp! My popular battery-powered bass guitar amp contains two 6V motorcycle batteries that provide a full 12V to the amp. Unfortunately the amp's plug-in charging adapter is totally manual, without any automation whatsoever. The amp's owner's manual literally yells at you to keep the batteries fully charged, or they will die. However, the manual also warns me to not leave the power adapter attached to the amp more that 10 hours, or the batteries will die. Yikes! What the amp needed, and this charger provides, is total ease of use. It monitors the charging state and battery condition constantly so that it can switch to a safe trickle charge, or full charging rate EXACTLY when needed. With a simple modification to the included extra pigtail cord, I was able to add a connector that plugs in perfectly to the amp. I am now able to leave the charger connected to the amp full time, without any worry of overcharge. For the life of me, I cannot figure out why the amp manufacturer passed up this excellent charger when it was sourcing a power supply. It works...perfectly, and it is a bargain at Walmart. 04/10/2010
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Product doesn't last I bought 6 of these over several years. Started using this type to maintaining tractor, motorcycle, generator and lawn mower batteries. All have failed with green light on which indicates battery is charged. Over the years I would find batteries discharged and in some cases no longer usable after as little as 2 years of use. I am looking for other options to replace the 3 I had in operation this year. Very frustratingDo not trust these for battery maintenance unless you keep checking on them with a good meter. 12/27/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Skeptical but glad I tried it.......... I normally do not post reviews simply due to the lack of time I seem to have however, this time is different. I have several motorcycles and quads with batteries. I have always used Battery Tender products in the past and have worked out well. I picked up another bike and needed another Battery Tender and ran across the reviews for this Schumacher SpeedCharge. I read the reviews and noticed a couple of guys said this thing actually brought their dead battery back to life again. One even stated that it did after the dealer told him the battery was bad.Based on that, I gave it a try. The reason is that I have a DRZ400S with a dead battery that my Battery Tenders will not charge. They just blink indicating that the battery is completely hosed. After I received the Schumacher, I plugged it in and after about 24 hours, it blinked just like the Battery Tender. I unplugged and plugged it back in and it started the process over. After another 24 hours, the green light appeared and showed a fully charged battery!!!!!!! I have started the bike several times since then. I am sold on this thing and will order another when I need another charger/maintainer.Highly recommend.One thing I can say is that I was surprised at how small the unit was when I received it. The picture does make it look larger. Don't care though, it works great. 12/10/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Does more than I expected I've had this charger for a few months now, and it's doing a great job. It is a slow charger (like it's supposed to be) so it won't charge quick so you can quickly jumpstart something. But it's purpose is to slowly charge something. I have a battery that loses it's charge after a short while and this charger works great. I use it on a riding lawnmower battery. After I've cranked the battery a few times and then put it on the charger, it takes a couple of hours to fully charge it.I like that it has lights that show when it's charging, if the connection is bad, and if the battery is now fully charged. It will also let you know if the battery is bad and can't be charged. And when it's fully charged, it stops pulling electricity.I thought it was a great buy. 07/11/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Worked without any issues My car sits in the garage and only comes out now and again. The 2 year old battery was petering out, low cranks when I turne the key. This product worked like charm. At first I thought maybe it was not working as the "charging" light was on for about 20 hours. Finally it went off as my battery must have been really drained. Turned the key and it sounded like a new battery. Rarely do I find something at this price that does what it is supposed to do, this one will not dissapoint you. 02/01/2014
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Product description VERY misleading To be fair, the product may be fine. It is the Wal-Mart product description that is problematic.Per the Wal-Mart description:"The Schumacher SpeedCharge maintains both 6- and 12-volt batteries, keeping them at full-charge using float-mode monitoring. Perfect for charging small and large batteries found on motorcycles, classic cars, RVs, boats and more...."The truth: It will Maintain 6v and 12v batteries but only charge 6v batteries. If you try to charge a 12v battery, you WILL ruin your battery. I found out too late and now my battery is screwed. FWIW, I had it tested just a couple of days prior and the battery tested good. Now it will not hold a charge.I am now looking at having to replace an expensive battery. 12/26/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Owned for a year -- very happy I've owned and used this product for a year and have been very happy with it. I primarily use it on my motorcycles and just plug it in after riding. My bikes stay outdoors but under a cover so keeping the charge up is a priority when it gets cold.My other half's vehicle doesn't see much use and lately I've been taking to plugging her Blazer in for a week then alternating with the bike.I used it on a flat battery and, within 20 minutes, it charged the battery enough to start the vehicle. At this price, the unit can't be beat so I probably will get another -- one for the bikes and one for the Blazer. Great deal !! 11/03/2013
