Re: Rewiring a battery charger

Yes, you've made the right choice, it's better to go for a dedicated 24v charger, as as gerty said, the result of a conversion would be unreliable (and potentially dangerous, as with every unstable electric appliance). I mean, not earlier than a year ago, I was accompanying as an interpreter a comme...
