This charger works great! and with desulfation benefits. But remember kids your plugged into the electrical outlet of your house and 110 has a nasty bite. Not nasty enough to make you let go of it, but you will curl up like a baby. So if your scared of the electrons then don't play with them! and get your wife to plug in anything electrical for you. Danger ! Danger is equal to working on older model TV.

Happened by this tool again, and thank angelfj and rgsparber for the warnings. Having worked with capacitors, I know the nasty shock they can produce. But fatal? I wouldn't risk that.

I strongly disagree with the tone of "angelfj" posting. No need to run the author down. However, I strongly agree with "angelfj" technical comment. The project is extremely dangerous and should not be tried. Rick

To DIYer and anyone else who sees this project. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO BUILD THIS.  THE LACK OF ISOLATION AND SHORT CIRCUIT PROTECTION COULD RESULT IN A FATAL SHOCK!!! Whoever reviews these projects needs to do a better job to assure that reasonable  measures have been taken to avoid injury/death.  This one is a real piece of crap and should never have been published!
