    Battery charger ?

    My 330 is laid up for the winter now and my mate gave me his Gunson battery charger today for the winter, to use on the car.

    It's got 2 switches, one of which I will set to "Float Charge" while it's connected to the car, but the other switch has "Auto On" and "Auto Off".
    What should I set for that switch ?
    The unit's getting on abit, and the instructions have rubbed off

    Thanks,
    Ferret !

    Re: Battery charger ?

    Float if the battery is still connected to the car. It maintains the battery by switching to charge mode when needed. I use that on my intelligent charger

    It was a rediculous hour of the morning, it had been a long day, I was just hoping someone would know the answer outright.
    Anyway, I now know what I need - Float and Auto On

    I've taken it off the road for the winter to get all the work done to it that I want to do, as quite a few bits are needing doing now
