AL 500 High-Speed Battery Charger is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Most annoying charger I have every owned We moved into our house earlier this year and thought I would upgrade some of my yard tools and go with Stihl. I don't regret that at all, the tools are great and they will out last my weekend work load. Since i don't have a lot of trees and would only need to do trimming once a year i though i would go with the battery power chainsaw. I like the thought of not having to deal with a gas engine after it has been sitting for a year. Everything was great until i had to plug the charger in then wow. It produces the most annoying high pitch sound, I have to unplug it when not in use. it is horrible, i absolutely hate the charger.1 - Quality - Something in side is screaming 3 - Dependability - It does charge when i need it to 5- Power - It does charge fast 1 - Value - for the price i shouldn't have this issueOver all 2 star - i would have gone with gas power or a different brand If i knew how loud it was.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than the AL300 for AP180 battery I had been using the AL300 for the AP180 battery but then I switched to the AL500 charger. I swear my battery performance is a little better with the AL500. I should have made a more exact measurement when I had the AL300 charger. However, I returned the AL300 charger for this one when I realized I had the wrong charger. The AL300 takes at least an hour (longer?) to charge the AP180 but this AL500 can charge the AP180 in 30 minutes. That's no joke. My lawnmower has a 30 minute run time so a 30 minute charge time is perfect. If I ever have a larger yard, I can just purchase another battery and cycle them easily. For now, I just enjoy being able to put the battery up after sitting down for 30 minutes.
