Default Re: Duracell Battery Charger - CEF22GBL-3

I bought an Energizer ENC-2A car battery 2A charger/maintainer and played around with it and found out the software was terrible.
It would not start charging unless the battery passed a little test it did. Firmware looked at battery voltage and tried charging for a couple seconds and if it was not satisfied, it went into a fault/lockout condition and you'd have to reboot it to do anything else.
I took it back to the store for a refund because it would not charge gel cells or anything sulfated, and it also had a bunch of software timers where it would charge for a minute then think it's done.
It's not going to burn the house down or wreck the car so why all the bimbo firmware? They must get paid a lot whoever designs these in china.
