Scott---we don't really know how he hooked it up. Was the polarity correct? Was the charger plugged in when he tried to attach the clips? I really don't know what I can do to help him. Not standing beside him to show him makes it tough.

I wonder if he could do a cell phone move clip and post that on the internet? At least that may give some indication of what he is doing.....plus what his set up is.

Just thinking out loud.

Here is the best I can do: Bob here is a link to the operator's manual. Pay attention to pages 8 and 9. Not all of this manual pertains to your unit.

If you used the battery terminal lug cable like I asked you to, there is a 5 amp fuse inline on that cable. Maybe you shorted something and blew that fuse. There is no fuse on the alligator clip-on cable if you were still using that. I will send you a PM with my personal phone number. Feel free to call me if you can't figure it out. If you did short the unit out, get hold of Granite Digital for warranty repair or replacement. They seem to be nice folks to deal with.

Just curious and while looking at these two maintainers (Battery MINDer and Save A Battery) I believe a couple guys in this thread are actually using the MINDer, but I really don’t think there is much difference in the two other than the price.

I have the Minder - it has a slightly greater initial charge amperage (2 amps) and a temperature sensor that increases the float voltage in cold conditions and decreases it in hot temps (don't know if save-a-battery has that or not - but I think not).

Each has a different (eg. each thinks theirs is better) pulse pattern or wave form during pulse charging. Most battery techs don't believe mfr. claims for the benefits of pulse charging.

You are right Joe, I agree. And I do like that temp sensor too.

Default 48-Volt Battery Maintainer

Well I couldn't stand it. I'm bout find out how it does with my 4 yr old pack of 12s, scooterman. I started a thread similar to yours a while back. But didn't get anything convincing enough to jump.
Thanks
