Question Re: Old Lester Charger - High Voltage

That's correct, with it not pluged up it will read high like that!

I think the 2 fuses is one for the AC side of the charger and the DC side. Not 100% sure but that's my guess.

I tested one of those older chargers too once. I got the same high reading but when it was plugged into a battery pack it worked normally.... I think it needs to be connected and then recheck your findings. Those old chargers were not safe ~ coming on when not plugged in... I imagine you could add a 36v relay in it to modernize it?

Also, if you are interested, George offered to replace mine at half price for a new one for there "loyalty" program. I hope I didn't just get him in trouble... but he gave me a screaming deal on a beautiful new one.
