Re: Smart Chargers
Hello Mike Dwyer:toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I agree the aviation specific battery chargers are expensive. However,
Concorde will void your warranty if they find you have been using
anything else AND $190 is about the price of a replacement battery. And
I've seen a new battery destroyed in less than 2 years by using the
wrong trickle charger.
However, I also know some people have Automotive trickle chargers
without problems, which raises some questions:
-- Have you checked the output voltage of your charger against the
-- Do you think local environmental conditions have anything to do with
your success? (I know you live in a very temperate zone compared to
some of us. Local Temp extremes for me are about 10 to 110 deg F.)
-- Do you think early failures are just bad luck?
I'm not against saving a few bucks, but so far the local experience is
against the automotive trickle chargers.
