My heavyweight electric car battery charger!

I got 12 Yuasa 12v lead-acid batteries (SWL 2250F) in my car, and the charger I got is a heavyweight - is there anything lighter on the market that I can take along for charging while I'm at work?

Hi, Wynona!

Sure, get a Manzanita Micro PFC-20. It weighs about 20 pounds, and is fine for a 144 volt system. It's currently selling for something like 2000 dollars US, and ships out of Washington State.

All the best,
