    Cobus, unacceptable! I would have expected it to arrive no later than 8:30 - I will have a word with the Couriers

    Have fun, it's an excellent little charger!

    My BX-2 is working overtime! Since the family heard I have one, more and more batteries are arriving at my door for a decent charge!

    Experimenting with a 12Ah gate motor battery thats apparently 'kaput' at the moment, will let you all know in around 24 hours if Ive been able to save the old man R250 for the replacement!

    Excellent product, excellent service! What more can one ask for??

    Glad your chargers are doing the job for which they were designed

    Bee, is everything working A-OK now?

    These Benton chargers are boring,
    Good sales service,
    Priced well compared to others,
    they work just fine,
    they keep on working,
    Boring I say, nothing to rant about
    (I have bought about 10 so far, not all for me)

    Good morning

    I need to invest in one of these urgently - so need some advise here. If I read the above correctly you would advise against connecting the charger to both battery's at the same time?

    So in my car I have the main battery with a NL selenoid and then deep cycle (both under the hood) If I want to charge them you would advise to do them one at a time?

    But what if I want to leave the charger on to tricle charge as the vehicle us used maybe once in three months? - would you then advise that I rather get two chargers, one fo each battery??

    Which one/'s are going to suit my needs best?

    Dirk, I always prefer two chargers, one per battery. Small chargers like the BX-1 are adequate for this. The intelligent chargers need to ascertain battery parameters, with two batteries in parallel this is not possible. PM your email address to me for more details.
