RE: [DML] Battery Chargers



Aaron, Batteries like a long slow charge to get maximum results. If I have
time I use a small 6 to 10 amp charger that drops down to float in about
less than 8 hours or less. I have at $39.95. If in the shop we need to start
a car quickly or we only have 2 to 3 hours to top off the battery then we
roll out the faster charger like you mention below. I don't sell these. And
if we just want to keep it active while in storage I use a float charge
which I sell at $9.95. No matter which way you go, batteries like best the
slower charge. 
As far as your hot start problem, That could be the accumulator or a loss of
fuel pressure thru the fuel pump check valve or other fuel related items. Be
careful of buying accumulators that are NOS. They won't last due to the
rubber diaphragm. There a pain to change only to have to do it every 2 to 3
years with the cheap NOS ones.
Call if I can help.

Subject: [DML] Battery Chargers

Hey all,

Even though the winter here in NY has been extremely mild, I have  
'winterized' my delorean.  While only owning my car for a couple of  
years, I am now very exposed to the pitfalls of the battery not being  
used frequently.  I'd say this was the year of the jump start for  
me.  Well I think one season is enough and I've decided to find a  
suitable car charger that I can use when the spring comes around.

I have an Exide battery from PJ Grady's.  I don't know anything about  
batteries except that.  I was checking out Amazon and saw one that is  
a good seller and got good reviews.  It is the Schumacher SSC-1000A  
charger.  It looks good and isn't expensive at $49.99.  I'd like to  
know what you guys think and if this isn't good, please post an  
alternative.

Any help you guys can give, would be much appreciated.  Once I have  
this down, I can focus on the potential hot start problem I  
encountered late this year.

Thanks!
