Hi folks,
Steve here from Moss Landing. We have a beneteau 310, 94 hull, with a readi amp 8. we are changing the batteries to the Odyssey 1200's but want to check if the Readi Amp is working. Can someone please advise how to check the charger.
Thanks! Steve

Re: help with Readi Amp 8

First of all, the 8 amp charger is a insufficient.
Second of all THAT charger is insufficient.
Third, that battery is a starting battery, not suitable for the house bank on a boat.
Forth, that battery is expensive as hell for what it delivers (44 amp hours).

I'd suggest you do some reading here and elsewhere for both chargers and batteries instead of asking how to tell if the charger is working.
