Question DPI charger question

I just received my new charger today and I'm wondering if the charger can stay plugged in 24/7?

It was my understanding that the charger would shut itself off when fully charged but the instruction booklet says to unplug it when finished charging but I have troubles following these booklets.

Does anyone that owns the DPI charger unplug after use? my cart sets for days depending on the weather and I was going to leave it on the charger when cart is not in use.

I also have a working powerdrive2 charger for sale if anyone is interested PM me.

. . . is the DPI also a "battery tender/maintainer" . . . or just a charger?

If you leave it plugged in it will maintain the batteries in a float mode where the batteries are kept fully charged and ready to go .

I leave mine plugged in and check my batteries monthly to make sure I am not boiling the water out, so far it has been good

The batteries will not boil with the charger in maintenance mode. There is just not that kind of amperage being put in.

I believe I will leave it plugged in and just watch the charger status, hopefully mother nature will let it start warming up here in Southern Illinois so I can get the cart out. Thanks everyone for feedback.
