The DuraBoost Charger/Maintainer 750 is perfect for those wanting to charge and maintain their 12v lead acid battery. It constantly monitors your battery voltage and if it falls below 12.8V, the charger will charge the battery at a constant 750mA until the battery is fully charged (13.6V) and then turn itself off.

I have four batteries that need to be maintained. Two motorcycles, a lawn tractor and a generator. I'm aware of maintainers that can simultaneously charge multiple batteries but I can't locate all four close together and I don't want to remove the batteries. The quick connect pigtail provided makes it as good as it gets when you want to use the device the battery is in. You can move one maintainer on a rotating basis to multiple batteries if so desired by buying or building additional pigtails. The plug is a common trailer connector item readily available. I purchased two Battery Maintainer 750s. With a total of three battery maintenance devices I only have to swap rarely as I ride one of the motorcycles quite frequently as long as there is no snow which is most of the winter where I live in SW Washington. I've only used the two new maintainers for two days but have observed them to stop charging as designed when the battery reaches a specific voltage. I believe the Battery Maintainer 750 is a very good value for the money.

Battery maintainer works like its supposed to. It's been holding up to the weather well, my bike stays out side all year, snowed on and rained on a few times already. Definitely works, my bike is a lot easier to start on those 30 degree mornings. It's so small you can unplug it from the power source and take it with you, use it at work or for a weekend trip to make sure your battery is good to go.
It's quite a good deal. I really like the colored led's that show exactly what's going on. The only problem I couldn't find much information on what the lights meant. What I determined is the red light means it's charging, green means it's fully charged and quits charging until the red light comes on for a short time to top it off, then back to green, etc. Seems like a good way to do it.
I bought these to keep the Batteries in my 4 wheelers and lawn tractors on out property ready to use and these were just what I was looking for at an absolutely great price. I have just started using them but they brought all the batteries right up to full charge.
It is lightweight and easy to use. At first use on a partially discharged battery it was flashing red. Instructions did not explain what this meant. It later turned to solid red and then the next day to green. Definitely a slower charge than the 'Battery Tender' by Deltran. The cables are definitely inferior quality. For a few $ more the Deltran Battery Tender Junior is probably a better value but this is adequate for the scooter I use it for.
