Re: [EVDL] LED Taillights - a money saver in gas cars? ->rangeextenderin EV's? - an a

I've been using one of the Guest 6 amp 12V auto tender chargers for my Dc-to-Dc. My Aux battery was kinda smallish, it was the
starting battery out of the truck I converted. After 1.5 years it finally gave up. Now I have about a 75AH battery out of some
medical equipment cart. The 6A Guest recharges it after my daily commute in less than an hour. It can also plug right into the
120V pack to charge while driving. I relied on this a little when the old aux battery couldn't keep the headlights for a 10
minute drive. But the Guest charger is potted and I don't worrry about it getting damp. I've had this charger for near 10 years
now.
