Several Years Later And Still Going Strong By Stuart Gorsky
UPDATE: March 2009. Im not sure how long ago I wrote my previous review but it must be at least four years. I am using the same battery/charger combination and all is well. Two or three times a year I test the system by unplugging the Battery Tender and run my ham radio off the battery for five or six days. Each time the battery behaves as if its still new. If my Battery Tender ever gives out, I will purchase a new one!

One of the best purchases you can make! By Cas
This is a sweet little charger. I use it to charge my small portable sealed lead acid batteries, as well as the 12 volt deep cycle batteries I have for emergency use.
One day decided to give a 12V Porter Cable Ni-Cad battery pack a last chance before getting rid of it. The battery did not hold a charge after the Porter Cable charger said it was fully charged. It would run out of juice after turning a couple of screws or halfway through drilling a hole.
I opened the battery, used smaller alligator clips to connect the charger and battery pack then let it sit till the green light came on. The battery works almost as good as new with plenty of gusto in it to do some real work.
A valuable asset to ham shack equipment.
