Re: (ET) winter boost charges
I have several "Landis controllers" and I
had one on a tractor with an E Meter. The E Meter keeps track of
all battery functions including ah out and back in. With the
Landis controller the charger was never able to replace all the ah
I has used. Even if I let the tractor sit plug in for 2
weeks. The Landis controller is fine for maintaining
full batteries for long periods of sitting but will never fully recharge
the batteries if you use the tractor on a regular basis.
