    alternater charge

    HI DS I'll see what no b/s info I can track down. I'm interested in what you said about if the battery is low they won't put out 14.4V until later in the charge. Well I'll do a test, I'll drop the battery voltage down to 10.5V then see if the Ctek will put out 14.4V straight from the start...

    alternater charge

    Hi DS My original set up was Century 75Ah battery, Redarc SBI-12 soleniod, 16mm2 cable to and from the soleniod with soldered and crimped lugs. Originally it worked reasonably well but thinking about it now I would say the SBI-12 might have been the problem. In reguards to Battery makers I...

    alternater charge

    Hi DS Thats interesting considering what the battery makers and Baintech told me. I have just installed a Ctek D250S on the patrol and have found that my aux deep cycle battery had a better state of charge than it would just using alternator voltage which mine is around the 13.7V. It was...

    alternater charge

    Most will charge at 13.8V if the alternator has temperature compensation you will find the hotter it gets it's output will drop. This protects it from burning out. A thing to remember is at 13.8V it will not fully charge a deep cycle battery. This I have confirmed with Century, Federal and Exide...

    Are you talking about the DC-DC charger or the normal dual batt kit. Have a look at ctek D250S dual battery system it also has the facility to connect a solar panel to it as well ( so no solar controller required ). I have one installed on my missus NS Paj and will be installing one on my GU...

    Dual battery Isolators

    Hi webguy In our NS Paj I installed a ctek d250s dual battery system which is a DC-DC charger. The reason why I went this way was on recommendation from Century, Federal and Baintech ( Peter Blume ). They all said a altinator will never fully charge a deep cycle battery. They must be charged at...

    Recovery points for NT Pajero

    I've also looked around for recover hooks for the missus NS Paj but alas no luck. I have read on the Pajero forum that the factory hooks strong enough for recovery. I use a strap and attach to both hooks pas & drivers side and pull from the centre of the strap. This balance's the load across...

    2 Stroke Oil In Diesel

    I wouldn't use 2 stroke oil in diesel if your 4wd is fitted with a DPF. Has been known to cause problems with Cummins engines DPF and EGR's. For the newer diesels with emissions DPF's I would only run a recommended diesel fuel additive, I run the Amsoil diesel fuel concentrate in my new 2009...
