Please post experiences with either brand.

I have the relabeled BMW Deltran. The ground plug broke off, after the BMW parts warranty and the cost of sending it back and arguing with Deltran was about half of the price of the unit in the first place. Plus my time.

I now use a CTEK (which is also sold relabeled by Porsche).
