OK, yes, it does seem like a value, especially if you consider its cost per pound and what it is suppose to do. But that is just about where the good news ends for me. It is an "automatic" charger and, accordingly, you never really know what it is doing to the battery while it's "charging." Based on a hydrometer read during the charge process, the hydrometer indicated a 75% charge (and yes, it is an accurate hydrometer) however, the charger's digital read out indicated 100% charge and yet it continued to pump 10 to 20 amps into the battery seemingly indefinately (even after the hydometer indicated a 100% charge), unless, of course, the operater (you) interviens and unplugs the unit (apparently, not as automatic of a charger as it aspires to be, or maybe it's a charger on steroids, or it just can't let go because it is, after all, a Die Hard). Also, you will always know when it is charging because it has a high pitched zinging sound emitting from an internal cooling fan of some sort -- sounds like it's getting ready for take-off. Who knows, you may like it. Somebody must be buying and using this charger; however, apparently the engineer who designed it, probaly didn't. But I would give him an "A" for effort.
