I have had wonderful success with a Sears battery monitor. They were about
$25 and I plug them into a timer so that they are on for 3 hours a day.
They monitor the voltage and charge 1 amp only when needed. I use the timer
because I do not like leaving any devise on for months all the time. Four
MGs which always have strong batteries for the last three years.

Denise on this list ran experiments on batteries stored on concrete floors

Not to start a non MG thread, but the worlds best hot dogs come from
Paterson N.J. They are cooked differently (deep fried) and are topped with
a special brown sauce (like but not Chili )  The Texas wiener is not from
Texas, but originated in Paterson in the 1930's . I will try Blackies
anyway as I am a hot dog nut. Those who want the names or directions to any
of several Paterson Hot Dog locations, email me
