- Jun 3, 2007I will pay attention next time. I think that the A-Hr meter electronics sets zero's the meter when it sees a negative going voltage spike. That is, when the charger voltage cuts off.

The ng3 configured for 156 and gel batteries does not have a float
charge so at the end of the charge cycle it just shuts down but the
green light will remain on.(the one on the charger) The AH meter in
the car reverts to 00.00 and then starts showing amps removed as the
dc/dc is always on. If you had a Brusa or other charger with a
continual float the AH meter wouldn't go zero until you had the
charger off for awhile.
Short answer is it is normal without a float. The batteries are
draining as soon as the charger stops. I see about -0.17 per day with
no usage. Insignificant for a day or to but it adds up if you need to
leave it unused for awhile.
If you check it towards the end of the cycle you will see a minus
number. Mine comes pretty close to a 10%+ overcharge. You'll find that
the overcharge time is very long but the amps are lower than used by
the Brusa charger.
