Over or under charging due to faulty control boards are a common problem which can cause damage and shorten the life of your batteries. Control boards should be checked and recalibrated where possible, at least once per year. Problems such as early shutdown and overcharging should be addressed promptly. Many older chargers can be upgraded, economically, with Digicon control boards.
