Technical Discussions / Re: Potable 24 volt DC with two 12 volt DC chargers

I did the dual charge on my red and yellow tops in Tigger. The red failed but the yellow was ok. The cold temperature is hard on these batteries.
However, that’s not what am trying to achieve.

I picked up on this idea from John years ago and it's been working great!   When I'm not using the 110 I just plug in the 120 to my extension cord and the rest is all set up.    Eazy Peasy

No. I mean you mount the dual battery charger in the vehicle and plug it is when desired to 120V. This is what I do in all of mine. I use the Noco marine ones. They are waterprooof and do great with a permanent install.  They do a nice 4 Amps dual battery charger that can be hooked up continuously.

There's a good idea. I'm going to do that with the Disco this summer.

They should be fine in the cold with a proper smart charger. Trickle chargers are a bad idea. There is no reason to bring them inside unless you do not plan on keeping them charged.

I need to bring batteries inside. They don’t survive well with trickle charge in cold long term.

It is not a Cx model. I would be asking double if I were selling that. 276C for $350 shipped is less than the current price on the street.

Are these really the 276C and not the current model 276CX?

Why not just buy a dual battery charger?
I have one already. However, I have to disconnect the jumper cable to charge the two batteries.
The intent here is to have a black box approach with simple on/off function to switch between charge and drive. Also be removable.
