    I did a quick "review" of the aftermarket "black" 3 battery charger. This video also contains some _very_ important information on a quick and important modification that I would recommend that everyone do if they are using this charger.

    Please feel free to share.

    Yes, it's a simple fix. I stumbled over this problem a few weeks ago and the fix via different source, a UK bloke using "Channel G" as his intro. Very clear instructions as well. :)

    I guess I should have notified everyone back then.

    Great video. What gauge wire would you recommend for the ground?

    I'm terrible with the gauges of wire. I used about the same gauge as what was already on the other prongs. Stepping it up to a thicker wire should not hurt.

    Yep, that's all I did. I measured it by eye and used some left over wire from a wiring job I did on my tinny (a small aluminium boat).

    I did this mod last evening. I used #12 braided wire. Worked well. Thanks for the heads up.

    70w to charge 3 bats? sounds bad to me, will take forever to charge, we need 100w per batt 300w in total charger.
