Default Looking for Grid Charger

Hello, I would like to buy a grid charger as I already have a harness installed. If anyone has one to part with, please let me know!

If there's anyone local to me (Lincoln, NE) I would be happy to rent it occasionally. Thanks!

Is it the Hybrid Automotive one or another one? I have a grid charger I'm no longer using since I ended up bypassing the pack. It was used once, just the luck of the draw with the pack dropping a few cells.

There are many different versions of grid chargers.
Some are a $1,000 (like the Genesis One).

If you can, tell us the maker of the harness for the one you have?
If you are not sure snap a pic of the connector. That should get us on the right track.

Sorry for the wait. Here's what the harness looks like

That harness plug is for either the original Genesis charger invented and marketed by Mike Dabrowski or the variation now sold by HybridRevolt. It is a very well designed charger and was originally around $1000 cost. It is a very complicated computer driven charger with lots and lots of set-up options. There is a good manual on-line and one must spend a bit of time with the manual to understand the charger. But, it is the Cadillac of chargers. One should ask if it comes with the discharge light.

This one just hit eBay:

It is also highly regarded and widely used by members.

Thanks Jime. The discharger does seem to be a big advantage but for the price I'm leaning towards a more simple model. Would this charger work?

Well, that charger has been a bit controversial. It may work fine as a charger, but there is no provision or capability for discharging. Though no statistical data to back it up, many senior members think the discharge half is more valuable than charging.

HA uses the 4 pin Tyco connector. You will need to install the harness.
