Have battery voltage checked to make sure you are not over charging. Long term charge should be close to 13 volts.

I leave one of these plugged in to a 12v socket by my control panel.

That way you can better understand how your unit is charging or the true charge level of your batteries.

That's very cool! I don't use that outlet anyhow! They are relatively accurate?

I would say yes even with the resistance of the plug and wiring. My wfco converter puts out 13.6 most of the time to charge and that is what it reads.
