      IMOHO, the Zivan has a nasty finish-charge algorithm, and
      will shorten the life of anything but flooded batteries.
      Might want to check if Zapi has chips to provide gentler
      profiles.

      There was a canadian company (forgetting the name) that
      has a well-respected charger, but they max-out at 72v.
      If you have an old 144v system, you could get two of them.
      They had q in their name or something (NOT Soneil)
