Got delivery of the Tejas Gell Cell charger today (plus some other goodies)
Everything arrived intact, well written instructions, came with everything.
(After scrounging for parts on the epiphyte I wanted everything in one
box for a change of pace!)
However, I have a newbie question that the manual does not address.
As supplied, it will charge gel cells up to 4.5 ah capacity. It states
larger ones should be avoided (current issues). However, what about a
smaller gel cell (I have a 2 ah 12 volt one)???? Will this battery be
charged to fast? Why? Why not?
The circuit is based on "A different kind of charger" by Don Johnson,
WB6MXD in 73 magazine. What issue whas this?
