      I am contemplating the purchase of a back-up charger as well and was looking at the PFC2500 sold by Elcon in Sacramento. The price for a new unit is a bit more than your budget at about $675.00. Less expensive than a Zivan and far less than the B3300 or its equivalent.

      I wish I had a working spare I could send you, but I don't have any at the

      I had a working spare, but it got damaged when I swapped a board from
      another broken charger into it. :(

      One of the draw backs to "swap-tronics" when troubleshooting...

      If only I could get my paws on the BC3300 schematics (or at least a parts
      list showing the differences between the SAFT chargers and the GEL/AGM
      chargers, I have a few SAFT chargers, but they have different parts
      populated, and are missing some parts when compared to the lead charger, I
      am reluctant to use logic, processor, gate driver, and I/O boards from them
      in the other chargers)...

      *wags his tail*
