    Re: DC-DC Charger Comparison

    I see now. When I bought mine it was around R300 less. There was a problem with his website at the time. Sent him a WhatsApp message in the morning, collected in the afternoon.

    If you can figure out/access the alternator's outputs you can just put your voltmeter onto those I suppose.

    Your alternator is broken or there is a bad connection somewhere. A properly working alternator should be putting out something between 13.5-14.5V depending on how flat the battery is. At 11.87V not...

    True. The feature table could perhaps be clearer as well, and have Automatic/Manual/No as the options for that feature.

    Nonsense. Modern systems use rolling codes that change every time they are used. They can record whatever they want, whatever they get is not useful in any way.
