If you aren't gonna be around when the main charger finishes its cycle and leave for a length of time. You can just use the maintainer and walk away. Just left mine for ten days still at 53.7 (6 x 8 volt)

The reason being you don't always have time to fully charge then change over so it may be better just to let the main charger cycle.
Charging batteries with two chargers at the same time is a No-No.
(Technically, it can be done, but if it isn't done right, you can be out two chargers and a set of batteries, and possibly setting the cart of fire and whatever it is setting in or close to.)

The Battery Maintainer will do a better job of keeping your batteries charged to 100% SoC, but it is slow charging them up from whatever they were discharged to on your last ride before leaving the lease. May take 12 to 24 hours while the regular charger will charge them in 8 hours or less.

Best practice would be to plug the regular charger in as long as you can and the switch to the Battery Maintainer right before leaving.

If there is no time at all for even a partial charge from the regular charger, just attach the Battery Maintainer as you leave.

Those are the answers I needed. Thanx. Now deciding on the saveabattery unit or the battery minder unit . . .

Olman...

Can you supply a pic of just "where" you mounted the maintainer/charger...??? I have a 2008 1/2 (4 x 12) and very little room in the bucket (under the seat). Was wondering just where you mounted your maintainer...???

Thanks so much !

I will try and take a pic in the morning. The charger is so small it will mount almost anywhere.

Olman...Thank you...!!!

Having a time finding a place to mount my maintainer. The tub in my 4x12 precedent is pretty tight...so I'm looking at all my options. FWIW...my maintainer has been on my 2011 batteries for about a month now. I disconnected the maintainer yesterday and waited a bit more than 24 hours to check the SOC...it is currently 50.5

On my EZGO,I just used zip ties to a frame rail. Worked great. 50.5 is OK. Give it more time and see if the pack will come up more. I don't know what shape your pack was or the age of it. I know Scooterman's and my pack came up.

It's in storage until spring...no hurry to remove the maintainer. Thanks again for your time and help...
