50% off.  I have one of these on all my non-daily driver batteries.

Don't use it as a charger, only to maintain a charge. Been using many of them for years. So fa {knock on wood} they've been good. Had one fail, just stopped working, but was an older one LED style IIRC. I have one on my lawn tractor battery and one my emergency spare car battery 24/7, and use them seasonally on my classic car batteries.
YMMV :D

Yeah I have a bigger one to recharge dead batteries, just need something to keep the 2 cars I park for winter maintained. The other one has a deltran battery tender (all my dad's corvette friends told me to buy that one years ago...)
