    Same here slabfish.

    In the mean time I have bought connectors to make my own leads as alternative. Only down side is I could not fin the exact same connector benton uses. That after enquiring at numerous companies.

    Let`s hear what F_D says, I forgot to mention that it`s the BX-2 charger I have .The plug part is the difficult one to find when making up a lead ,I suppose.

    Clem, I should have got back to you sooner, my apologies. The Importers have made up loosee leads with the plugs on, I need to order some. They are not original, but they assure me they work fine. Their price was a bit heavy due to the fact that they make them up themselves, approx. R85.00 if I remember correctly.

    I will order some with the next shipment of chargers, I'm currently on holiday in a wet Durban but will be back next week.

    Tim, I sent you a PM a few days ago, but have not yet heard from you.

    Simon and others, the existing stock is still at the same price (R420.00 delivered), but the Suppliers have sent me an email stating that the new stock has going up in price. I have not yet received the new price list, and still have stock of BX-1 chargers. The BX-2 stock I have is being held for a customer (forum member) whom I met when in Durban last week, so no more stock at the old price of BX-2. Will post the prices as soon as I receive same.

    Thanks FD, I did receive it. Apologies for not replying sooner.

    I also want a BX2 so it looks like I'm outta luck for now.

    Please let us know if the ones you're holding become available, or when you get the new stock in.

    Hi,
    Are there any still available?
    Which 1 would be suitable for a 35-40Ah VW Beetle battery and a Jump Starter packs Sealed Lead Acid 7.5Ah.
    What is the max battery size that the BX-1 can handle?
    Both have been drained for a while, but will see if it works.

    Petri, the BX-1 is more than adequate for your needs. Is the VW battery a 12V one?

    Refer the first post in this thread for full specs on both chargers.

    At the moment we still have stock on a first pay - first serve basis

    Thanks F-D, yes the Vw is 12V and has a Willard that was last replaced in 2003. Car is standing @ the moment, still in running condition except for battery. Will keep it locked till we have time to fully restore it ourselves.
    Could you please supply me with your banking/payment details and prices.
    We are in the PTA-Menlyn area.
