Plug in to 120V.
1 green, 1 yellow, fan starts.
5 green flashes (~5 seconds), fan stops.
1 yellow, 1 red.
Green/red/green/red/pause - repeats 5 times.
Then it repeats this cycle over again.
Gee whiz! That's a high "pucker factor".

My battery was returned by UPS back to ECO due to "Hazardous material issues"!

Now what is this about? I hope someone just forgot the label.

A word on the SOC for the ECO.

Initially, I would advise keeping your meter on "volts" not %. Apparently, the meter is rated for 250A and above that it loses its "%" calibration...and most of us are running past that with aftermarket controllers. My cart died at "50%" while going to the store. That's on me, since I wasn't monitoring the voltage. Voltage was...let's just say low. The tech at ECO (Noah) said they are working on a new SOC meter that will have a more reliable % calibration. He was also concerned with my range (13 miles when it died). We are going to monitor that with a couple more charges. He said I should be doing better than 20 miles...even with my mods. Felt I might need another battery if it doesn't improve. This was all on my phone on the side of the road on a text chat. Instantly got back to me and we were troubleshooting withing a few minutes after contact.

Needless to say, ECO has shown excellent customer support from my experience so far. I'm glad I made the purchase. They seem to be a company that will stand behind their products. It's nice to see them joining the forum.

I purchased the 72Ah kit based on things I learned here. The installation is complete and I couldn't be happier.

I have had great communication from them, especially Andre who has answered questions from me twice on two different Sunday evenings. I don't think those people ever sleep!

After reading your post here, I decided to leave my original voltage meter connected also. This way I can watch the voltage constantly with a well lit readout. Then I leave the SOC meter on percentage. So far the number have all matched according to my SOC chart in this thread:

I sent you a PM with this onformation.

Well after 4 weeks of use, now the third charger has stopped charging and is going through the same on/off cycle with error codes, exactly the same as the first two chargers.

Batteries currently at 46% and 38.29V. Reached out to ECO - waiting on a reply.
Now what?

I'm so sorry to hear this. Has it been resolved by EB? Try the chat feature on the website. I have had good, fast response doing that.
