I'm not understanding why a regular old battery charger is going to "fry" my batteries. I've charged car batteries all the time and haven't fried anything. I've also charged the boat batteries with the same result. A battery is a battery. If you're not permanently hooking up the charger for long-term constant use I don't see the problem. I think this guy is just charging up as needed.
