      Comments about West Marine 15 Amp Automatic Battery Charger with Engine Start Timer:

      I drained battery in my dinghy , I could not get charger to work , Then I read the manual where it states "Will not charge a battery that has less that 2 volts ?? " I had to borrow my neighbors charger to get it over 2 volts then I used the charger. Just a little odd it won't charge a dead battery. Unit is well made.

        Comments about West Marine 15 Amp Automatic Battery Charger with Engine Start Timer:

        Love this charger,maintainer. I truly have tried all the others and this thing does all the others do and then some. It looks cool also, but you can take this thing anywhere, can use it for any automobile, motorcycle, boat vehicles. It also is very easy to understand and use right away. It tests the battery then charges it to it's max, then maintains, with a cool blue display. Also has other functions such as starting timer for hurry up situations. Great great buy, I will never buy anything other than this brand again!!!

                  I know very little about charging batteries so this was the perfect cahrger for me. All I did was hook it up, plug it in and it did everything for me. I love how the screen tells me what's going on with my battery.
