    Not only will it damage the batteries, but you stand an excellent chance of setting your car alight. Lithium batteries do not take kindly to being overcharged and can combust. There is protection...

    Re: Crispy Toyota

    It was a Firebug, those things we used to catch when we were knee-high to a grasshopper. They built a nest in there and all hatched at the same time with their little glowing tail lights. :)

    Paul, here we go - it is designed primarily for charging AGM batteries at 14.7v in cold weather. It is described on page 4 of the attached manual.

    Interesting! The old BX-1 (non-AC revert) was very reliable and very seldom presented any problems. This is the lowest-priced in the Benton range and the only downside is the fact that one has to...

    Re: School me on fuses please

    I've always regarded those toggle switches as being rated at 2A maximum, can't see why they would ever rate it as 15A.

    Yep, in that case you need to make use of the boost mode. Brad's batteries are all fully charged, according to the green indicator so that would not be the problem here.

    Hi Brad,

    What battery, one that falls into the BX-2 compatibility chart above? If the charger does not "recognise" the battery, it will not charge, for example some of the 7A Alarm batteries.
