  1. Re: 12v Power Pulse battery maintenance system

    Intelligent multi-step chargers do this anyway, why bother with something like that? Unless I read wrongly, it does not charge the battery at all.

  2. Sticky: Re: Benton BX-1(M), BX-2, BX-4, BX-5 Multi-Stage Automatic Battery Chargers

    Keith, it's a huge improvement over the original one. The new BX-2M is somewhat larger as well and feels heavier than the previous model. One of the main problems with the older one was the LED...
  3. Sticky: Re: Benton BX-1(M), BX-2, BX-4, BX-5 Multi-Stage Automatic Battery Chargers

    Benton has just released their new range of BX-2M (Pro) chargers. These chargers have several great new features including the capability of charging Lithium (LiFePO4) batteries as well as normal...
  4. Ford & Mazda Re: Is it safe to trickle charge via the cigarette lighter?

    For low amperage (1-2A) you will probably be OK, but only for emergency use. Always good policy to keep your charging leads as short as possible and connect directly to the battery.

    Re: Inverter - repair or replace?

    Probably cheaper to replace it than attempt a repair. Are you sure there is not just a fuse blown somewhere?

    Re: Hilux 1991 converted to efi problems

    Perhaps have a chat with Louis Zannoli at 4x4 Direct, Centurion. He has done many 2200 EFI conversions and should be able to sort you out.

    I also have a 2200 EFI conversion and will never consider...
  9. Re: Radio equipment iIdentification required.

    If that CF is able to handle your Ham repeater frequencies, it will be the perfect solution and far better than any of the teensy duplexers usually available. Our local Hams also use them.

    Hi guys, glad to hear that the Bentons are serving you both so well!

    Jaco, the BX-2 would be better suited for use in the trailer, I have forwarded the latest price list to you via email.

    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. :)

    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...

    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.

    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.
