I have one of those as well, replaced a Black and Decker (Vector) that 
just magically stopped working one time.

The one thing the Vector had, that this one does not and I miss it, is a 
manually-selectable desulfate cycle.  With this one it won't start the 
desulfate cycle until it tries and fails for a couple hours to charge 
the battery normally.

I know the hard-core battery types laugh at the idea that what these 
chargers do is really 'desulfating' but it does seem to work, the Vector 
had recovered 3-4 batteries for me that would not hold a charge in the 
car including the big group 49 thing that came out of my M5 ~7 years ago 
and, after two passes through the desulfate cycle on the Vector, has 
been my jump-start battery ever since.
