Battery charger recommendation

I 100% recommend the ctek battery chargers, I have their MXS7.0 it's super quick, and works well for recovering dead batteries too. A little expensive, but worth it for sure.

It comes up for sale often, and I picked it up around the $200-300 range.

They have smaller and much cheaper trickle chargers too, like the MXS0.8

Thanks guys.

ordered the 10A one., should be here tomorrow.


Looking at the trickle charger one but the big ones can do the same.

 

still 12 hour on the s*** one I had was enough to get the car running and take people to get jabbed.

 

Sweet, that'll be a beast. The 0.8A one my friend had was so slow, but worked so well, which is why I grabbed the 7A. 
The 10, should be nice and quick, and like you said, they still do the trickle functions too.

10 will be a beast. We have a couple of 5's for things that don't get used often. As mentioned, they pull off some Lazarus-grade resurrection of batteries. I've got a battery that hasn't been used for 5 years on "Recon" now, will be interesting to see if it can get it usable again.

I was looking at the panel mount kit one with the lights.

I just get all overkill stuff so I never have to buy twice.

same reason I have the 1/2” Milwaukee impact driver. Though it is a fun toy on suspension bolts.

Same s****y power supply as so many things.

shows more about standards and testing rather than design.

design is good as they aim for cost savings.

 

also currently with mass component shortage things will get even worse as they try to get stock.
