As I've learned that lead-acid batteries like to be charged as soon as possible after use, I've contrived a way to charge while I am at work. I mounted four Husky/Vector chargers on the back of my Emax. Thankfully I can park at a covered motorcycle area that has an outdoor plug (it doesn't get any better than that).
They are mounted on a wooden board in the upside-down top of a plastic crate for protection against the weather.
I mounted a power strip down the middle to power the chargers so that I only have one plug to plug into the electrical outlet. I am using powerpole connectors to connect each charger to an individual battery (which also means I can rotate chargers to batteries). One set of powerpole connectors are tucked into the frame over the rear wheel (held there by a rectractable key chain) and the others are attached to each charger.
This setup seems to be working well for me, so I thought I would share it.
Looks good & functional. I'm sure you could downsize it some, but this keeps it an easy 'plug & play' situation. So you carry this charging setup back & forth to work? If you had one at work & one at home, i could see this being ok.. but if you're carrying it around, i think i'd downsize it.
I know that means taking the vectors apart & putting them in something, but the savings in space & cords would be a lot! I think someone here (John?) disassembled them & put them in a fishing tackle box.
The main advantage of yours is the units stay intact, which keeps the warranty intact. Once we start cutting up the chargers, i'm sure black & decker won't warranty them. But i don't think your charger setup is very practical for most people as a portable unit. I'll probably stay with the factory string charger for portability, & use my bank chargers at home.
Thanks for posting.. we all get ideas & new directions from what others do before us, even if it doesn't suit us, personally.
