    I would get what ever ones are cheapest. The PSU's work well. So far, with everyone that I have seen on here that has purchased them, no one has had a failure. I'm sure it will happen, but so far it hasn't. And I have charged at a full 30 amps more than once. They hardly break a sweat.

    10awg wire.jpg 137.jpg 186.jpg Hi Graham wiring the volt meters is easy just a case of two wires I used the Futaba extension leads and connections to make it easy for when you pop the lid on just connect up. on the 12v side I used some ring connections onto the binding posts.

    Hi Grayham your wires as follows.
    10= Red.
    6 = Black.
    4 = White.
    8 = White.

    This diagram is like mine but for the number 4 white wire which I did not use but am sure this will work fine do not forget the blue bridging wire any problems just ask.

    Diagram s are very good this is what I needed:) Kev put me right, got everything working. I have had to dismantle my mancave to allow wood worm treatment:)
    I am going to redesign it. In the meantime my charger is on hold until the weekend:(

    I think but could be wrong that my wires are different, so will copy the diagram.
