Yes that's the one I got from J&B Tool Sales for $75.92

Note that your picture shows the 12V one, not the 48V one that we are talking about.

I liked that particular item not only for the price but because it has an input voltage of 90-264V AC and an input frequency of 47-63 Hz.

That means it covers both your power (110V & 60 Hz) and my power (240V & 50Hz). With those ranges it could be used anywhere in the world.

Default Battery maintainer????

I don't know anything about that brand, does it have the desulfator frequency? That's an important part of battery life, breaking that crusty stuff up (sulfate) before it's gets big enough to short-out the cells.

Here is the brand i have used for 6 years now. I got 8 years out my previous set of batteries by using individual chargers on each 12Volt set of batteries.

If you want one simple 48v charger/desulfator: http://www.batteryminders.com/batter...er-desulfator/

If you want the absolute best, get a 6v (36v cart) or 8v (48v cart) for each of your batteries to give them individual attention:

From the online manual:
http://www.r2batterysaver.com/wp-con...ery_Manual.pdf

The way our units work starts when the charger is plugged in. The
microprocessor immediately checks for a good battery before it turns itself
on. This eliminates the problem with sparks, short circuits and possible fire.
If our unit sees the correct polarity, correct battery type, correct battery
voltage, and a battery it can charge it will go into it’s first stage, Bulk Charge
Mode. This mode does 80% of the charging and with our 50 watt output it
performs twice as efficiently as many other charger and much faster than
most of the maintainers on the market. Once the battery reaches it’s 80%
level the charger changes into Absorption Mode. This is where it slows
down the charging rate so as not to overcharge the battery with a minimum
of electrolyte loss or battery damage due to overcharging. It is virtually
impossible to overcharge with this type of system. Once fully charged we
switch into Maintenance Mode which feeds the battery just enough to keep
it fully charged. The charger stays in this mode most of the time but
periodically switches into pulse mode where it basically cleans the battery
plates, and de-stratifies the electrolyte helping to equalizing the cells. This
process reduces sulfurization which improves battery life.

So is the battery minder better because it costs four times as much? I've had my save a battery unit a while and it seems to work well.

Lol good I'm happy for you :) ...Not wanting to start a brand war, nor did I put down your "brand". I only ASKED if the save-a-battery unit had the desulfate feature because I didn't know. I also posted my experience with the BatteryMINDER having that feature (and where to buy it) because I do have experience with it - and it has extended the life of my batteries dramatically. Just sharing my experience, sorry if it struck a nerve with anyone - not my intention.

In any case, having a dedicated charger for each battery (instead of one big 48v charger) is the absolute best way to keep your pack perfectly balanced - and that's with ANY "reputable brand" charger/maintainer. If that brand also desulfates you'll get additional lifespan. Do both of those things along with proper maintenance and you'll make that expensive pack of batteries run at their peak much longer.

No you misunderstand. I question when something inexpensive claims to offer the same benefits as a more expensive counterpart. Often the claims are invalid or the unit will have a really limited lifespan.

I know it keeps my batteries topped off well. I have no clue if it does the sulphation control it claims to.

When I spend that much on batteries I want to keep them in good condition. If the less expensive unit will do that than I'm all for it. But if it will not then I will suck it up and spend the extra money.
