Default Schumacher or DPI Charger

My charger is down for the count so I am looking for a replacement. I am mainly looking at the DPI and this Schumacher
Amazon.com: Schumacher INC-3625A '25 Amp' 36V Digital Charger: Automotive Amazon.com: Schumacher INC-3625A '25 Amp' 36V Digital Charger: Automotive

Reviews are great on the Schumacher, capable of higher amp charging and it is cheaper. Is the DPI worth the extra $75?

Well I think I have answered my own question in further research. Yes DPI is worth the extra for its warranty, made in USA and Float charge.

I love the dpi! One thing i have noticed is if used after a long float the cart doesnt last as long....maybe its just me. So i will unplug and replug or drive the street then plug in. But its great to see the cart voltage maintained. Dont look back and buy it.

Ordered the DPI this morning, Can't wait to get it! Especially since I have no idea if the batteries in the cart are any good ( bought it dead ). Thanks for your input guys

The Dpi won't charge dead batteries. Use an automotive charger and try to charge 2 at a time while waiting on your new charger.

My batteries are sitting at 37.4 volts right now, assuming that is fine?
