Top-rated auto battery chargers are sold by Sears, Kmart, The Home Depot and Walmart. These chargers are sold in stores and online, and they have ratings as high as four and five stars.
Sears markets a brand of batteries and chargers known as DieHard, which is sold by several national retailers. These chargers are highly rated by consumers, who are often repeat customers. More consumers purchase the small chargers rather than the bigger wheeled chargers, although both types get mostly five star ratings. Another top-rated charger with Sears customers is Plus Start, which has an average rating of 4.5 stars.
The Home Depot offers combination battery chargers/engine starters rated four stars and higher. Black & Decker is the highest rated small charger, and it features a waterproof case that is ideal for cars, ATVs, RVs and boats. CAT and Century are top-rated wheeled charger brands, featuring up to 200 amps.
Walmart’s top-rated chargers are made by Black & Decker, Stanley and Schumacher. The Schumacher XM1-5 is highly rated for its dual use as a car, motorcycle and lawnmower charger, while also serving as a direct power source for electronics. Black & Decker’s top-rated charger/maintainer is compact and comes with a built-in bracket for convenient mounting. Stanley has a number of chargers rated between four and five stars, including a 1,000-amp model that has almost 300 five star ratings.
