Though there's much more to finish up, I can't resist sampling the operational data. I've taken two slow 10 mile drives and found that the recharge starts out in constant current mode (set @ 10 amps) and later shifts to finish in constant voltage mode (set @ 104V). My high rate service charge is 8 cents/kilowatt hour and consuming 1450W (in cc mode) relates to 11.6 cents/hour. I'll see what the draw is after the charger shifts modes and edit this post. This charger didn't come with the ($95) auto shut-off feature which I think I will want.
