I bought a set of old Compac Magnum batteries with a Lifesaver Compac Magnum charger, and can't get it working right. I can't find much documentation online either. So if anyone has any info that would be great.

The charger keeps blowing a fuse as soon as I plug it in, and that is without putting any batteries on it. I've owned the full size lifesaver chargers in the past without issue, but can't figure this one out.

Thanks,
Thomas

Thomas,
That is quite an old charger you have there. I think we stopped making them back in 1992 and I know we don't have the ability to service them any longer. We can't get most of the parts any more. If the fuse keeps blowing, it sounds like there is a problem in the power supply section with some rectifiers. You can try and contact our Customer Support Dept at support@antonbauer.com and see if they have a schematic still available and then you can bring it to someone and have them take a look at it. I hope this helps...........we also discontinued the Compac/Compac Magnum batteries around 1992 also...
