I bought a car battery charger for 60 USD at the supermarket, Bedini's at 600 USD, it's COP 10 for him.
I ordered a 24 V desulfator from Malaysia for 50 USD, including shipping, waiting for it. But at least it looks small and light. Don't know yet if it will work but they seem less "hungry" than Bedini.

Really my Bedini is VERY noisy. Imagine an old fridge compressor going wrong and making noise, and you have my Bedini charger
And the vibrations propagate very far. Have to say that I am living in a flat at present time.
I can't run the Bedini at night because the neighbors will complain, it's that simple. May be I got a defective one and others are not so noisy ...

My bicycle battery is new brand, 24V gel 7 Ah. I bought this bicycle with lead-acid batteries just to try the Bedini charger. So far so good, after may be 60 charging cycles (half with the Bedini charger) I notice no decrease in autonomy. Of course I have no double blind study, so I can't compare to the same bike used without a Bedini charger.

I am really deceived by this charger, especially at such a high price. But of course I might come back on my investment in 10 years after saving a few batteries from going to dump

But I found invaluable info in the DVDs series, and I learn a lot from Bedini disclosures on his motors and circuits. I love Mr Bedini, and I know that everyone is limited, so I forgive him for not disclosing his most "powerful" designs.
Actually it's not my responsibility if he conceals data that could save lifes, it's HIS I am just sad for those who could be helped with such knowledge.

This being said, please gentlemen, back to experiment, we have free electricity to produce !
Jules,

Man, that French VTA really sucks. But I suppose you pay that on any international order, even your desulfator from Malaysia. In Australia I get charged 10% customs duty and a further 10% GST on imports. So it's nearly the same.

I just charged up a 24V 7Ah battery with my RC-1AU and it only took 4.5 hours. At 22 cents/kWh it cost me about 3 cents to charge up my battery.

If you can ride your bike all day for that sort of money then I'm sure you'd agree that the RC-1AU is worth the money. I'm sorry you seem deceived by your RC-1AU. I have found it to be a great charger and it's already paid for itself. If the noise bothers you, put in a place where it doesn't.

Don't let the price fool you. There are a lot of battery chargers on the market that are designed to kill batteries. The Bedini technology will do a better job of charging and your batteries will get better over time instead of worse.

For a car battery charger and rejuvenator you are better off with the Spanker RC-2A12. It only draws about 60W from the wall (@240V) and puts an amazing charge into a car battery. At USD280 including shipping you only have to save 2 or 3 batteries and it has paid for itself.

I've also learned a lot from the EFTV DVD series, as well as from what I've read and my time on the bench. I'm still continuing to learn and experiment. John Bedini is yards ahead of anyone but we have enough information to be able to try and figure out what he's doing. It's not that hard once you can grasp the concepts of what John has been talking about all along.
