George, its probaly too expensive ($300 to $450 range) and too much OVERKILL for run of the mill and automotive applications, but in my RV I went with the Xantrex Truecharge2 Automatic "Smart" Charger that is computer controlled and operates in 3 basic stages (Bulk Absorption and Float) PLUS has an "Equalize" feature to theoreticaly reduce sulfation. I have four true deep cycle 6 volt Golf Cart batteries in series paralell for 12 volts and rated at 460 amp/hrs. A buddy has the same set up and charger AND HIS BATTERIES LASTED LIKE 9 YEARS so hopefully I get good results, I will let you know 8 or 9 years down the road. If NOT I got ripped off grrrrrrrrrrrrr

Best wishes and Merry CHRISTmas, a celebration of the birth of Christ our savior and also happens to be a FEDERAL HOLIDAY

JohnT, I wouldn't mind spending $450 on a charger that I was guaranteed it would do the job in a week or two. I would move around and freshen up all my batteries.

I'm not the least interested if I spend $450 on a charger that I have to leave on the battery all the time.

So do you have to keep your charger connected all the time?

Do you ever load test them to see how much good it's doing?
