I have talked to the engineers at Granite Digital about overcharging and they have assured me that it cannot happen. No offense but with my and my friends experience with the product, I tend to put more faith in Granite Digital's word than in a person I have no knowledge of. Helping someone "make an informed purchase decision" is one thing. Scaring them without firsthand experience with a product is another----
Olman I just hooked up my new "save a battery maintainer", I have the 48 volt. I clipped to the neg and the pos. of properly-- 4/ 12 volt batteries.deep cell. The maintainer lights ripped right down thru there sequence, and then it went clear off, Am i hooking this up right? . i don't think i got all the directions with it. Its now hooked up to a single battery which shows the power light on ..fairly dim and non of the other three, Can you get me on the right track ? please thanks olman

Bob---Don't hook the unit to just one battery. It is a 48 volt unit. You might or have already damaged it hooking to one 12 volt battery. I don't use the clips. I use the wires that have the terminal eyelets on them. Hook the pos wire unto your last (the one that goes to the solenoid) positive battery terminal and hook the neg wire to your last negative battery terminal in the pack. I think you have not hooked it up correctly. If there is any doubt which terminals to hook to, get out your DVM and hook the charger wires to the terminals that give you 48 volts.

It has reverse polarity protection, I'm sure under-voltage won't hurt it either.

Thank you much olman!I called ca and ask the fella ,,kenny is his name .I told him what i did(had to know if i burnt it up) He says you can't hurt it. has bypass-- It won't hurt. it it has a protection gizmo in it,to guard against nit-wits like me. All is fine its charging 4 batteries, and the yellow light says the same thing[blinking]. i Appreciate the quick reply my friend. i Like it! ...kinda wished it had a fully charge; indicator,on it somewhere. btw you never seen anybody move so fast when those lightes did
that! First thing i said to myself -- D/A you just fried this thing and you ain't had a full day yet, Alls well here. thanks olman and Merry Christmas to you and yours cheers bob scharp

ps i am looking for away to just plug it in, when it rolls in my garage, without drilling holes, in the fiberglass,if you have something on this olman clue me. please bob s

When the yellow light goes steady, the pack is fully charged.

I put a marine charge receptacle into the service cover behind the seat.
