Default Think OBC is bad. Anyone use one of these?

http://blockbustergolfcarts.com/Club-Car-OBC.aspx

If the OBC is bad, I can supposedly bypass it on the cart and hook this up to my charger (the way I read it) and it will do the same for more than half the price. Anyone using one of these and if so, is it worth it? Oh and let me add, I have a PowerDrive charger. It says Lester type charger. Not sure what is meant by that.

What is a "Lester" type charger they are referring to?

"Lester" is the name of one of two (I think) companies that made chargers for CC. If I'm wrong, someone will jump in...

Ok. I think I'd rather spend $106 to fix my problem rather than close to $300.

If you look carefully you can get an OBC v3.0 for about 150$. Alternatively, I have a good working v2.06 OBC from an 07 I'll let go pretty cheap. It'll work for any pre-2008 4x12volt precedent setup.

I appreciate it. But I have a 97 CC DS. 6x8.

The stock OBC monitors Ah and V, regulates current, and conditions the batteries.

A timer is better than nothing I suppose...

I have a working '97 OBC I would be willing to part with for a reasonable fee.
