Doing a little reasearch on those little trickle chargers you can get at places like Harbor Freight.
Those little transformers you plug in with a couple of clips for the battery.
Has anyone had a catastrofic failure Ie: melt down,fire,blown breakers or fuses?I use one on my group 30 Trojan deep cycle battery any time it is idle.And my linited expierence is flawless operation.
Maintains 13+ volts and no problems.
Any time a battery sits sulfation is a problem and a battery killer.As these things are used all winter to maintain batteries I'm wondering the odds of a major failure?
