I bought this digital charger a while back from Canadian Tire but since batery chargers are rarely used (hopefully) I waited a bit to post the results.

Heres the specs:

60A engine start provides instant power to crank your engine
30/10A rapid charge, 100 amp clamps
2A trickle charge for maintaining batteries in storage or between uses
Charges batteries twice as fast as conventional chargers
Diagnoses problems by analyzing battery and charging system
Short-circuit and reverse hookup protection
Smart technology automatically adjusts charging rate to match battery requirements
Battery receives a more thorough charge, faster, using less electricity
5-year warranty

And heres the pic:


So I've had the oportunity to charge a few batteries now and I have to say that it works very well. It's a tiny chassis and weighs next to nothing as well. Picture a 10"x10"x3" box. That's it. The 60A start feature is nice although I haven't had a chance to use it yet and honestly....hope I never need to use it either. Has charged Deep Cycle and normal batteries so far with no problems. I haven't used it to charge an AGM cell but I'll assume that it will work just as well for them too. Yesterday I brought a battery with a 35% charge to full charge in about 20mins to half an hour. The digital display always tells you what's going on too which is nice if your a geek and like objects with blinking lights and stuff (guilty).

Not much else to say since this is a pretty straight forward thing. CTC puts these on sale for $99 every once in a while too. If you need something bigger than this they also have a trolley mounted version that sells fraround $350 with a 275A boost and that will charge any 6-12V battery in 2-4 hours.
