Dead charger in my electric hilux ute. aka Electro-Lux.

Looks like the voltage sag was because one of my chargers died, and a set of 4 batteries wasn't charging.

Hopefully I can revive the 4 batteries that were not getting charged. They read 44 volts before charging so there might be hope.

I just ordered 2 more chargers from my favourite eBay seller e-crazyman.

The small cooling fan failed, causing one of the capacitors to die in a spectacular fashion blowing the top off and spreading it guts all over the inside of the charger.

Parts on the primary and secondary side of the switched mode charger were chard and one of the output fuses blew.
