I've had my new EZ Peak Plus charger for about four weeks and used it quite a bit. I was charging a battery today and noticed that the DC input alligator clips were lying together on the metal pan I was using to charge on. I said to myself, it's a good thing those aren't hot when using AC to power the charger.
Just to prove it to myself, I tested the ends with my voltmeter. You guessed it, 15 volts going to those exposed alligator clips. Some chargers I had looked at had removable DC wires, but the EZ Peak Plus does not. I just assumed that there would be some cutout switch used to disable those wires when using AC to charge. NOT!
This can't be correct. What if the two ends touch each other? Isn't that a dead short between them?
Would someone else please check theirs and see if it is the same? Thanks.
