SOURCE: Zivan NG3 battery charger diagrams

Hi,
your NG3 should have been preprogrammed for the type of batteries you are charging. The NG3 has the 3 wires from the power cord. Here is what I have done:
Brown from charger goes to black wire
Blue goes to white wire
yellow green goes to green ground.

Yes,if its working correctly,you should be getting a reading about 2.5 to 3 volts above the battery voltage rating while its in standby mode.

Why won't my Pride Go-Go Elite Traveller batteries charge using a trickle charger? The batteries are new, but my charger quit working.


Hi Robert , can you clarify what you mean by a trickle charger ?, any chance of a photo of the charger ?

using a standard gel battery charger , the charger will charge the batteries in question and once fully charged, the charger will trickle charge the batteries.. This is a standard operation and recommended by battery makers...

I have an aftermarket alarm system that has drained my battery


Dear Mary. All car alarm systems drain the battery after one week of the car not being used. Also, car batteries are not always fully charged on short trips because to start the engine on each short trip it drains a tremendous amount of power and a short trips do not recharge it fully. Have the car battery checked because the alarm is always on and on standby once installed, they usually have a small back-up battery in the alarm in case of car wires to the alarm have been cut, but that battery is always kept charged by the car battery, so, that is only causing a fraction of car battery discharge. However, to stop it from draining the battery you have to disconnect the alarm, and that is not a good idea. No car alarm that I have known have caused any car battery discharge, but of course if the car is not being used, or it is driven for short periods you are likely to experience a drained battery. Some batteries last more than 5 years not stop while cheaper ones have a lesser life expectancy, but again that depends on a lot of factors, heat from the engine, not enough charge because the alternator has a burnt diode, interior lights left on, too much cranking of the engine to start it and not enough miles done to recharge the battery. Try to get the battery checked and if you do not do any driving for a week, there are a number of solar powered battery charging panels that trickle charge it on sunny days but in winter I suggest you buy a charger that you can connect to the battery to keep it charged. Once charged the charger automatically cuts off and stays on stand-by until the car alarm has discharged it a bit, then the charger sensed the voltage drop and recharges it again, repeating the cycles until you need the car to go out. These small car battery maintenance chargers are inconvenient if you're not using the car too often. Some car alarm with go off when the car battery is disconnected. It's part of the protection the alarm offer. They may not be disconnected from the car battery unless you have a key that shuts off the alarm. But remember, the key shuts off the alarm but it doesn't mean it has disconnected the power from the battery. Check the pilot light status. If it flashes after the alarm key has been turned to off, it means the power is always there. Other alarms remain silent when the car battery has been disconnected from the clamps. If you garage the car at night, you can have a switch installed in the car that switches on the power to the car alarm or you can have the switch connected to a special relay activated Kill Switch that disconnects the battery altogether, but if your car alarm starts to squeal, then you don't need this switch. so try it first, disconnect the car battery and see if the alarm goes off. If not, then the Kill Switch is an option. If it goes off, then there is nothing you can do but to try and have the car battery checked and if you're not driving much or drive short trips, either a solar charger or a Mains powered auto charger can be used to keep the battery trickle charged. But before I go, you say you got an after market car alarm. Looks like it has been wrongly wired, who know. Have it checked by whoever installed it. Good luck.

What is a load tester for a batterie


A load tester is typically a resistance pack with an amp gauge to see how the battery deals with current draw. most automotive parts stores have one to bench test car/motorcycle batteries, which they do at no charge (pardon the pun).

Batteries can have a "surface charge"(voltage) which will supply low current at the specified voltage from a battery with bad cells, but when a real operating load, such as for an electric motor, the charge drops to zip..

If the charger is putting out voltage to the battery while it's plugged in then it would definitely be a battery issue, generally the charging system for electric wheel-chairs has regulatory circuits to prevent over charging so having one plugged in when not in use typically doesn't cause issues.

This charger is a maintenance charger and will not have enough power to charge a dead battery. It is used to trickle charge a battery to keep it charged and to off set any parasitic drain.

Battery goes dead instantly


TAKE BATTERY TO AUTO PARTS STORE FOR A LOAD TEST PROCEDURE, MAKE SURE THE CASE IT IS PUT IN HAS THE DOOR CLOSED FOR YOUR SAFETY, BATTERIES SOMETIMES DO "EXPLODE" AND ACID FLYING IS NOT GOOD. IF BATTERY IS NOT GOOD, I WILL SUGGEST YOUR BUY AN AMPHOROUS SOLAR POWERED BATTERY CHARGING PANEL, THEY COST BOUT 30 BUCKS AND WILL KEEP YOUR BATTERY CHARGED UP OVER LONG PERIODS OF TIME.

the solar panel is just to charge your inverter,if it is charging and the inverter is on it will drain the current the solar panel is supplying to the batteries,this makes it look like it is not charging ,so i advice you to switch off you inverter when charging it,get another set of batteries connected to your solar panel then charge both, let them be separated so that the new one is not in use so that when solar is out you can switch to the other set of batteries

I have a model 5251 generator that was not charging the battery. Now the motor will not start.


either a)there is no battery charger installed, or b)the battery charger is installed incorrectly, or not hooked up at all. the third possibility would be that the charger itself is not operating correctly but in my experience that is seldom the case.

the charger uses source voltage from the utility to charge the battery between tests and usage. the generator does NOT charge the battery during operation, so a trickle charger that uses source voltage must be installed in order to keep the battery charged. this tends to slightly decrease battery life.

reconditioning the battery prior to re-installation after the charger has been sorted out is recommended, but a new battery may still be needed at this point.

Battery and cold storage of car for several months


a good battery will hold a charge through the winter if disconected from the vehicle adn left fully charged.
you may want to look into a battery monitoring charger, it is a trickle charger that is designed for long term use, it monitors battery volts and turns on when needed.

also put carpet squares or cardboard under the tires if you are parking on concreet. this will help prevent dry rot and flat spots

Solar battery charger


Yes, but the efficiency of solar cells is terrible. Its one thing to use free sunlught to charge the cells, its another to have to pay the electric company to do it. If you can access the batteries in the solar rig easily and they are in the correct voltage range, I think you would be better off getting a battery tender (trickle charger). Just let the van sit outside until the batteries are fully charged, then connect the battery tender to keep it fully charged.
