I would stop resetting it. it should figure out that the battery is fully charged pretty quickly and go into float charge but you're basically just over charging the batteries every time you do that.

If I answered you in a well mannered, informative way, you asked a good question or had a good attitude. If I was an asshole, you asked a stupid question or you had a fucktard attitude... or I was in a bad mood.

If your charger is in green, then it should be in maintenance mode. If you have a bank or there is a small draw, then when you turn it off and back on it may go amber for a second or two and then go back to green.

Best is to just put a clamp on the charger positive cord when it is in green and see what it is doings. Should be low 13v range and around 1-3amps depending on where it is in the cycle.

For what it's worth: I spoke with Kyle.

I don't think his charger is working properly, It will charge at ~13.5, then drop into float mode at some voltage below the battery resting votlage
