    Default Which CTEK to use

    Hi all

    Please I need some advise I have a Disco 4 with duel battery system. At the moment when not in use I use my CTEK XS 3600 to keep the battery charged. I had 3 2 have backed up so only have 1 left. Which CTEK should I buy to keep the Batteries Charged?

    Thanks very much

    This one seems to be highly recommended on the forum... Midas PSA008 2/8 Amp DC Smart Battery Charger

    I have two Midas - originally recommended by Fluffy -

    There is a non-digital model and a digital charger which is more expensive.
    As far as I can see both perform the same functions.
    I have the cheaper version.
    Used for years - no problems.

    I have got that exact same charger, Midas PSA008 2/8 Amp DC Smart Battery Charger
    And two Victron chargers, a 10 amp and a 15 amp.

    When I use my two Vicrton chargers they float a battery a 13.2 Volts, the Midas charger floats the battery at 12.5 Volts

    Why is that?
