I would be interested in hearing a recommendation for a charger for
lead acid batteries.

I am looking for a charger that gives an indication of charging status
(no idiot lights please), capability for flooded cells, sealed lead
acid and any other options you have found useful.

Also, what do you use to charge your lead acid batteries?

Thanks

This will also depend on the application of your batteries.
Will they be deep cycled often?
Will they just sit on flaot charge except for emergencies?
Will they be a room temperature always?

All of the above.

So which charger(s) do you recommend?

Thanks

Actually, those questions really don't have much bearing on what charger
you want. You want a 3 stage charger that can handle your battery type,
and ah rating.
