Default Re: New Batteries-New Charger?

I would bet not, FSIP typically likes to keep it difficult for customers to change parts, program controllera, and do any software changes to the controllers. They like the customer to send things back for repair.

I would stick with the old reliable core and coil chargers. While I have little experience with switching chargers (my pro-tec crapped out) I do have plenty with another type of switching power supply vs the old boat anchor and the old anchor wins for long term reliability every single time. I also see much less potential for catastrophic failure (fire) in the components.

I don't think there is much more innovation left in a battery charger algorithm.

The flip side is that those things are usually not serviceable, although I don't know if the FSIP is one of those where is not feasible to repair.
I have had the board in an unnamed charger go bad 3 times now. I thought it was the batteries this 3rd time. I found a local fella just a few miles away from my hunting club to look at the batteries. He used a FSIP charger and charger the batteries right up. They have been staying charged since then. He has me sold on these chargers. A lot lighter and they work.

Down side. They are not serviceable. They state that. I need to check the warranty.

The instructions state "Do Not Get Wet." I suppose water is bad on any charger. Well don't plan to and I keep everything in a dry spot.

I've emailed FSIP a few times with questions. It was a bit like pulling teeth out of a live boar to get answers but I did. It would be so much easier if they did not try to make emails a conversation and just gave me the information I needed up front.

One good thing. These chargers maintain the battery voltage. Not quite sure how right now but I aim to understand that.

Check out this link: Lester on board charger review
This install is in an EZGO but there is good info on the charger which is your interest. I'm given to understand that David at http://www.revolutiongolfcars.com/ has installed several of these and likes them. If it were me I would contact him (email or phone) to get his read on them.
