Default Using a GFI outlet for charging?

Could a GFI outlet affect a Powerdrive2 charger?

Thanks for the quick response. I wasn't sure if that was part of my problem with the charger not shuting off automatic. I reset the OBC and plug the charger into an outlet that was not GFI seems to be OK. Charger shut off after about 7 hours. I have a reading across the pack of 50.2 volts. Each battery is about 8.35 volts. Just was curious. I'm no expert when it comes to electrical. I know GFI outlets can affect somethings like treadmills.

that shouldn,t keep charger from shutting off, charger has an internal shutoff that will shut it off at 16 hours if its still running but your outlet should have no effect on it at all...........................................

A GFI outlet may kick out if it's really damp, but your charger would just shut off. The power is either on or off.
