    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.

    A question out of genuine curiosity ................
    When someone requests a price on a device why is the price not simply posted - why is it always PM'ed?
    If you make a noise or need music in the bush or on the beach, you’re missing the point.

    FD provides a genuine honest service to the forum.

    I suspect he has no desire to get into a commercial price war with his competitors.

    And like any product prices change depending import costs and currency.
    I have had some of the best service from FD that you would only get 30years back when Buisnes was still conducted by gentlemen.

    Hi FD.

    Where can I take my Bx-2 for repairs. Served me well over 9 years. When I connect to a fully charged battery only the Yellow LED on at Power Symbol. Pressing the mode button has no effect.

    Thanks guys, the prices do vary with each shipment that we get. If we ran an online shop we would do prices on a daily basis but because we do not do so, I prefer sending the current price by PM or email only.

    Chris, we send repairs to the JHB-based importers, normally when we have 3 or 4 chargers at a time. Provided you're in no great hurry for this, you can send the charger to me via OLX economy which is probably the cheapest way, and I can include it in the next batch. PM me of you wish to proceed, the repairs are generally very nominally priced. You have tried it on a second battery?

    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 Lead-Acid batteries.

    Technical Data for the new BX-2M are as follows:

    Input Voltage: 220~240V AC
    Output Voltage: Nominal 12v or 24v
    Charging: 8-step, fully automatic, switch mode charging
    Types of Battery:
    - 12v/24v Lead-Acid rechargeable bateries (WET, MF, VRLA, AGM & GEL)
    - 12v Lithium Ion & Calcium
    Battery Capacity:
    - LEAD ACID: 12v: 18Ah - 240Ah / 24v: 10Ah - 120Ah
    - LITHIUM: 12.8v, 4-Cell LiFePO4, 10-80Ah
    Housing protection: IP65 (Dust & Splash proof) (Not Rain-proof)
    Charging Current:
    - 7.5A for 12v Battery
    - 3.75A for 24v Battery
    Power Supply: 13.6v at 5.0A

    The top panel of the BX-2M has been completely redesigned with higher-output LEDS, which are now very easy to see (as in the picture below).

    Coming soon: Benton BX-1M Pro version. I will post specs as soon as the shipment arrives.

    Very nice FD - If I was in the market I would seriously consider this one.

    As you may or may not remember I have an original BX-2 which is an excellent charger, but not my GoTo charger. Simply because you cannot select battery type and the display is more confusing and complicated than a Vegas Slot Machine. (I DO use it a lot though)

    This new version solves all those things.

    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 brightness, it was somewhat difficult to see the green "charged" LED although the reds were OK.

    You inspired me to add some more pics and to take a better pic of the LED display on the top panel
