Maestro C Battery Question

Bill Member ✭✭

Ok looks like I'm up for a new Maestro C in a short bit. Just notified today a couple of weeks and to update my order. So I have a question about the batteries. I can buy one, two and same on chargers. In the FAQ it says the battery WILL CHARGE when the Maestro is plugged in with the 24vac (I think it's ac) charger...might be DC. Either way it converts it I'm sure. So the question.

If I buy just the battery do I need an external charger? I know the obvious reasons if I operate away from power for long I need to plug in and go hybrid again..but if I just buy a battery with the Maestro will all work fine with the wall wart they ship with the Maestro?

Tx all...

73, Bill

    The way in understand it: Without the external charger, you need to charge your Maesteo C battery while it’s in the Maestro. You can be operating or just having the Maestro sit around, plugged-in.

    The benefit of the external charger is that you can charge the battery outside the Maestro, and thus have a spare battery all charged and ready to swap into your Maestro if/when you need it.
