I wonder if I'll be reprimanded for asking too many questions around here
One thing I really don't like about simple chargers for hand-held equipment
is that if you forget to unplug them they can cook your batteries
. Over the years I've ruined one rechargeable spotlight and one radio battery
What I'd like to have is a timer that you can set for up to 12 hours that will disconnect the power it controls (12 V and/or 110 V) when the time is up. Plug
the timer into a powered socket (whatever voltage it is designed for) and just have a mechanical settable windup timer that disconnects the output when the time is up.
Anything like that already on the market ?
