Beware! Reversed Polarity SAE connections
Charger seems to work well. Beware that if you already have SAE connectors on your batteries, this Samlex unit has the polarity reversed from standard. Typically, the battery ground is exposed and +12V shrouded on the battery pigtail, it is opposite on this charging unit. So beware!
