Grin Tech Cycle Satiator 608 Universal Ebike Charger

The Cycle Satiator 608: a 360W, rugged, waterproof (IP65), programmable (20 battery profiles), certified (!), universal ebike battery charger with graphic display, 90-240V AC input, 24V-60V DC output at up to 8A, supporting various battery chemistries (LiMn, LiFe, LiPo, NiCa, NiMh, SLA).
