    and yes,
    some caps do last long.
    it's a gamble, what the buyer gets in his purchase.
    when he plugged the charger, he heard a pop sound then the charger went dead.. upon inspection, main cap in the DC output popped.

    i replaced the caps.. bought at an electronic shop for 80 petot.. i forgot the brand but its a known brand.. given the same ratings, the new caps are larger compared to the stock caps installed in the charger.

    you can really see that the caps are made up to spec and quality materials.. not like the stock caps installed in the device

    Mura lang naman ito, first time to buy a car battery charger. If ever masira will consider buying yung pricey na mas matibay tibay na.

    Still thank you sa suggestion Amaron battery

    more like an upgrade po.. the charger design is good naman.. its just the stock caps in DC output needs to be replaced with a good one for better performance.

    or don't leave the charger unsupervised.

    perusing lazada,
    i saw a similar-looking charger as the yellow one here.
    it costs 399 bucks.

    yup its really cheap charger.. good design naman at yung electronics na "smart".

    price wise, goods na.. i don't know if may factor yung battery size being recharged.. kasi yung sa friend ko 3sm battery yun recharged nya..

    sa CTEK charger, sa initial phase of charging, you can feel the connectors and wires getting warm

    larger capacity batteries just take longer to charge, that's all.
    if built well, chargers used within their parameters should have not trouble lasting long.
    if "not built well"... heh heh.

    Ano nangyari sa emtrac mo sir?

    Ramdom question. Are DIN type batteries and JIS type (1SM/2SM/3SM) interchangeable? Assuming that the ah, and cca are higher?

    Ang isang maaaring concern ay yung physical dimensions ata sir.
