Humble Pie, as alls well so far now with the Genius smart charger. s

Like I said a while back, I tried to get it to work on a pretty old battery for about four or five days, and it refused to do anything other than show it was in standby mode.

I kept trying it regularly,(thinking maybe it's the operators failure to comprehend its workings/instructions?)

Anyway it finally then proceded to function correctly of its own accord, so maybe it was my dumbo lack of understanding?

Although I do have a sneaky suspicion that it could possibly of been a sticky relay, as now I can here it clicks occasionally, and with a DVM attached to the battery it shows a constant charge too.:

Regardless it has now done a couple of 16v boosts with no problems, and it then automatically switches to a monitored variable 12v charge rate, so I'm happy with it .:

It has a five year warranty, so if it keeps performing as it does at present, no worries.

I reckon in mho it's quite a slick piece of kit for 60 or so quid.

Friggin' absolutely brill' that Genius Smart Charger!

It's revived a 9yr. old battery to a useable state,which is now reading 12.59 v.

OK, its' down on punch somewhat, but what do you expect after 9 years hard labour?

I'll keep it charged and on standby henceforth!

PS Better priced then some of the opposition too.
