Re: New Balmar SmartGuage experience
After the new batteries charged for about 12 hours, the reset SG now says 89%. It reportedly takes 48 hrs to figure things out, but itís progress from the default of 75%. I shut the charger off to put some load on the batts. A dozen or so lights, the nav equip, etc.
Voltage dropped to 12.5-12.6 volts under load. Seems normal. After an hour or so, I turned the Magnum charger back on and it immediately went to float. I think it will do that at voltage above 12.4. I was hoping it would default to the 90 min Absorb and I could set a timer to 85 mins and watch final amps. Not sure how to do this now.
