  1. Opinions on this battery charger pls.

    therfore i am lost again, i thought if you used a meter to check a battery it would give you what the volts/amps are. Its what i have always done in the past.
  2. Opinions on this battery charger pls.

    I would find it easy enough to use a voltmeter to check the charge on the starter. then when topped up enough then connect both red to the bank.
  3. Opinions on this battery charger pls.

    As there are two outputs + then i would myself only think then that you can charge two point/batteries, thus splitting the 30amp to 15amp each way. Reason i chose this aswell is that i can charge the engine battery when needed if need be whilst slow charge o the main. Although in the sales ad i see only one red lead with croc.
  4. Opinions on this battery charger pls.

    Ah i see why you need instructions for use in english.
  5. Opinions on this battery charger pls.

    Are they not a plug and play thing then.
  6. Opinions on this battery charger pls.

    ah a case of workman blaming his tools ha ha
  7. Opinions on this battery charger pls.

    After thoughts today on this and read ups on a lot of cheap chargers i am going with a Numax ( Electroquest ) 30amp, great quality and safer to use. Not keen on risking the boat with a cheap charger than COULD catch fire. They are near twice the price of what i wanted to pay but peace of mind is priceless to me with this boat. Will order one tomorrow then get a new set of batteries later. thanks all for the help
  8. Volt/Ammeter meter ?

    Not a clue as yet but nothing like you mention. a quick list 12v 220Ah batteries Honda EU10I genny 1kw 30amp charger 1000w inverter ( not sure properly yet as T will need to use her GHD`s 300 watts ) this will be more complex then for me, maybe a pure sine wave one or what ever. about 14 LED lights amounts to about....god knows the power lol. TV 15watts 1.25amp But yes i want be using a 1kw mains appliance.
  9. Volt/Ammeter meter ?

    Think i am now reading these wrong as the BM1 is no good for me then as i have two 12v 110amph batteries ? this is the BM1 spec, not enough amps BM-1 12V 8 – 16 Volts DC BM-1 24V 16 – 32 Volts DC Supply current 1.5 milliamps Battery capacities 5 – 600 AMP Hour Load current 100 AMPS Maximum Charge current 100 AMPS Maximum Shunt Standard 50 millivolt @ 100 AMP BM2 spec Supply voltage 8 – 16 Volts DC Supply current 1.5 milliamps Battery capacities 5 – 999 AMP Hour Load current 199 AMPS Maximum Charge current 199 AMPS Maximum Shunt Standard 50 millivolt @ 200 AMP
  10. Volt/Ammeter meter ?

    I mite have a dabble on that not keen on second hand gear but hey ho. I will down load fitting instructions so it can be fitted properly as i read that they need to be fitted exactly as the instruction. If not i will just get the http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DC-120V-300A-Wireless-Volt-Ammeter-Power-Meter-battery-Charge-discharge-capacity/172278832577?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  11. Opinions on this battery charger pls.

    Thats the best price i can find on the 30amp Numax. Me and T have been discussing if its best to get a basic charger now as i first linked to, well around £70 for a 20amp or 30amp if i can find one in that price area and two new 110amp batteries. Could be best way to go as the batteries i have are not the same and i have no clue how old they are but they do hold charge for a good time.
  12. Opinions on this battery charger pls.

    Ye but only one review, not easy to judge on that. Anyway, looking at Numax, yes a bit dearer lol, they are meant to be good. Mite be a bit OTT though. http://www.budgetchandlery.com/numax-battery-charger-12v-30amp-marine-2608-p.asp?gclid=CjwKCAiAvMPRBRBIEiwABuO6qdzJ1f22iz5O2okWAdc_F2M7UviYBhYhqoT3GSNN_H2u5N3caIF0MRoCx1AQAvD_BwE
