Re: Battery Charger AC Wiring Question

The GFI is to protect you! Install it and make sure you also ground the charger case. I find more chargers not case grounded during surveys. The issue is if the charger shorts in the case and is not grouinded you will get zapped. Remember not to install the charger over the batterries as this will destroy the charger with fumes.
