    Default CTEK250S Dual repairs

    Hi Guys,

    In a distracted brain-dead moment I reverse connected my 250S Dual to the primary battery a few years ago. The internal fuse blew and if I replace the fuse with like-for-like it immediately blows again.

    Who in the Pretoria Jhb area can repair it, or is it not viable from experience?

    Thanks a mill.

    Had the same mistake happen to me 2 years back, wrong polarity connection on the battery side and released the magic blue smoke. as my unit is past its warrenty period I simply opened it and replaced all 3 x 30A fuses inside and she works perfeclty today still

    Thank you all guys, appreciated

    I have also been provided with a contact person who repair these units. Only question I have at this time is if it is viable or not. In some of the other threads it was mentioned the older Ctek250's cannot use both alternator and solar input simultaneously to charge the battery. It'll obviously only charge 20A, irrespective where it comes from I suppose.
