    I have had the same occurrence, specifically with Raylite batteries, new or old. The charger completes its charge cycle and then reverts to a standby condition. In all cases, the batteries are 100% fully charged. I have not been let down ever with am under-charged battery so it would seem to be perfectly normal.

    Eric

    Are the bentons able to automatically detect AGM batteries?

    My smart charger works brilliantly but you have to tell it you have an AGM battery which is a bit of a pain if you want to build it into an enclosed system

    To my knowledge there is no commercially available charger that will automatically detect an AGM battery.
    Smart does have it's limits.

    Hi F_D

    Do you still distribute the Benton chargers? I'm looking for a price on both the Bx-1 and BX-2.

    Thanks,

I disconnected one of the clamps and reconnected the clamp.and then the 12V and the 3 red charging status leds came on and went off again after a few seconds. I tried my other BX2 and it did the same thing. Is this normal or is there an issue with the battery?
    Just some feedback. So it turned out that my battery was stuffed although the little dot was green the whole time. Took the multimeter out and measured the voltage. It was on 10.5V. Got a new battery and now my chargers are behaving normally again.

    We have obtained some of the original Benton BX-1 models - these have much the same specification as the BX-1 Pro version with the exception of the auto-revert function in the event of AC power failure. This results in a saving of over R200 compared to the price of the BX-1 Pro model.
