Don't be too quick to dismiss the combination of the ferroresonant GE
charger and flooded golf car batteries. Yes, it's ancient technology
(most modern 3-stage chargers use microprocessor control), but for its
intended purpose, this combination works very well. While it's not the
ultimate in convenience, nothing can touch it for cost-effectiveness.
Has anybody added an electronic timer out of a Lester golf car charger to
their Elec-trak charger? It measures the rate at which the battery voltage
increases during the charging cycle and will automatically shut off the
charger when the voltage has stop rising.
I did install an 30amp gauge so I could monitor the charging since I'm
still using the timer.
