Reviews around feature (5.00 of 5)

  • I appreciate the “boost’ feature that which charges the battery quickly but will switch to 2amps/hour automatically
  • A neat feature is the ability to test your battery and alternator.
  • Also, the enclosure is totally closed and it does not look like damage would occur if one left it out in the rain - a very nice feature for me as I often charge equipment outside
  • AWESOME CHARGER SCHUMACHER!!Wonderful safety features that are very nice to have on thus wonderful charger
  • Great value product with great features and works perfectly.

Reviews around price (4.37 of 5)

  • Went to Amazon for a 12 volt battery charger found one that had more than I needed but the price was right
  • Idiot lights don't qualify the price.
  • Finally found a battery charger that does everything it says and at a great price too
  • The price was reasonable for a charger that filled my needs.
  • The only drawback is a/c only and not battery portable.

Reviews around job (4.33 of 5)

  • It charges 12v batteries fine, but does a poor job detecting 6v battery
  • marine/gel/and regular car batteries, and it does a good job on all of them... have not had the opportunity to try out the starter boost feature, yet, but I'm thinking it will work well, too.
  • , works great, kind of a odd shaped case, but it really does a great job!!!
  • Easy to use, stable base, not too heavy, does a great job.

Reviews around quality (4.16 of 5)

  • Unfortunately I relied on the big name of Schumacher and assumed the quality would be great
  • I got this unit to use with a sealed AGM battery that I have for backup power, as well as for charging cars if needed
  • Priced right , high quality, can’t beat it for the money
  • but unfortunately it was poor quality.
  • When researching, I did not want a light duty unit and this very good quality and great.

Reviews around thing (3.82 of 5)

  • The only thing this thing might be useful for is strangling somebody with the power cord.
  • Unlike their claims, it doesn't look like this thing carefully regulates it charging, rather it just applies a full charging voltage the whole time and can easily over-do it
  • Yet another annoying thing is that it defaults to charging agm batteries
  • If all this charger does is test voltage and not load than a volt meter and a cheaper charger can accomplish the same thing.
  • Nothing happened in fact even with normal jumpers the whole thing was dead, dash lights would no longer turn on at all (but hazard lights still worked).

Reviews around unit (3.49 of 5)

  • Its a bit dangerous really and this unit will likely go back as well.
  • Too bad we can't get a 2/15/125 manual unit like the old 125 units
  • Also according to the manual, the unit will display a "F02" error if "the battery could not be desulfated"
  • All features worked asdescribed and unit worked perfectly.
  • The unit from Walmart was defective right out of the box, as none of the Battery Type lights would illuminate (leaving you guessing as to which type of battery it was set for)

  • Slower charge than I was hoping for, but works very well.

  • I didn't even know that was a thing!!The slow charge is slooow

Reviews around power (1.69 of 5)

  • My only other minor complaint is that it has a strange set of defaults that it powers on with and you have to quickly change them before 30
  • The battery in my pick-up would lose some power and always needed a jump to start
  • This charger has adequate power to fully charge an average-sized deep cycle marine battery in several hours.
  • This is a charger not portable power pack
