New Battery Charger Recomendation

My 35 year old Craftsman battery charger quit on me. Nothing lasts these days (sarcasm key where are you). Any recommendations on a new charger? The old one was only had 10a and 2a settings.

Thanks

Paul

Re: New Battery Charger Recomendation

I have a Schumacher 50/10/2 amp charger that works really well. I would stay away from the cheaper chargers like Harbor Freight. They don't seem to hold up very long.

Re: New Battery Charger Recomendation

Stanley J5C09 and Gooloo are the best battery charger. Nowadays Black Friday deals available on every online store you can easily buy from your favorite one.

Re: New Battery Charger Recomendation

I have a Schumacher charger and 4 tenders , that range from 10 to 15 yrs old and still all work with no issues the tenders are never unplugged ,but would I reccomend them No because I dont know anything about Schumachers newer line up . dont know if there newer stuff been cheeped out like craftsman and other companys have done over the years . If its the life span of a new charger that is your main priorty I would not count on anything made today unless they offer a life time warenty. maybe find a nice old charger at a garage sale.
