Default Big Battery vs Cheap Little Charger

Here's what happens when a cheap battery charger pumps 6 amps into a battery (and a big one at that) continuously for more than 6 months in Florida heat.

Blew the top right off it 'eh.

Now, Just think,, There are many Motor Homes and Trailers out there with Magnejunk converters (or their equal) that are every bit as good as the O/P's cheap battery charger

On the other hand there are quite a few with very nice multi-stage converters that..... don't do that.
