Re: CTECK battery charger.

Hi Ron,

I have one of these Chargers and it says before you connect it to the Battery it should be turned on. I have a permanent connection to the Battery so i can just plug it straight into the Charger.

Hi Guys Don’t buy anything less than 150amp gas mig welder and don’t use anything less than Argon 5 with 10 litre Bottle. Using small Bottles is a false economy they don’t last. Flux wire is useless. It will not give you a constant clean flow. Find a used one on ebay. You’re wasting your money buyi...
