Awesome battery tester and charger.

I researched the product I needed and it performs as expected. Extension lead helps greatly so consider this as well. Fast delivery from Tanya and good price as well.

At first use, it appears to meet the claims made. Instructions are a bit weak, especially in description of the amps supplied in the float phase 7. amps for up to 10 days, and permanently connected at 2-5 amps in the pulse maitnenancecontinually can be expected to reduce the acid level in the battery as the water is converted to hydrogen and oxygen which, susprise surprise disappears ! By connecting a digital ammeter between one lead of the charger and the battery terminal, first at a safe 10 amp rating, then 1, then to milli -ampsindicates an almost non existing current. This may or not have been potentially harmful to the charger or ammeter, and even a false indication of the charging since the interference was picked up by the charger, but it was done anyway. If accurate the instructions should more clearly describe the amps decline in each phase in order to reassure those with enough understanding of chemistry and batteries, but necessarily enough understanding of the charger reality. I well remember my first car, a 1838 Morris 8 where the light swtich had 4 positions in sequence .... low charge, high charge, side lights, head lights. Thus going to lights automatically engaged first the high charge mode for the dynamo to keep the battery charged. In daylight, the low charge selection did the necessary for battery charge, minimising the water dissociation and loss as gas - but it was surely less than 5 amps and still the battery fluid level needed checking and refilling each month. I am well aware that life today with alternators and soolid state circuits is a lot more intelligent and battery water loss is no longer an issue. But 5 amps is 5 amps which can dry out battery cells quite quickly. Always willing to learn, I invite your (Tayna or CTEC) comments
