  1. @Planemo I have made sure to Only use my 220uf Leaperkim 450 5A charger since installing the New control board in my Sherman, with No issues after 14 Full charge cycles (approx. 20% up to 100% every time). This information now reinforces my concern over being supplied with yet another potentially weak 150uf charger as a replacement and I will now be following this up with my seller/Veteran! Not At All Happy
  2. @YZPOWER As I see you have very recently posted on the other topics concerning your brand of chargers, can you please add your comments/answer the questions made in my original post at the beginning of this topic regarding the Leaperkim version of your 450-5A 100.8v charger? It would be very much appreciated by myself and the rest of the Veteran Sherman owners that have visited this topic, which is now approaching 1000 views, Thank You!
  3. Ah now come on Shane, surely that should have read: "Hell's gates" in your case!!??

  5. I concur with @Tawpie regarding the fuse as protection, if you re-read my Original Post one of the fuses in the charger was also blown!
  6. Hi, yes I'm sorry about the images problem and have just had the same issue with 2 of my very latest informative posts, so I too was very disappointed! I have worked through those 2, after changing to a more reliable photo sharing service and will do likewise with this one in due course. Please bear with me as this one is a huge task due to having approx. 60 images to reupload, but I will definitely get it resolved during this week for you and the rest of the community!
  7. I'm aware about the photos and will get it sorted in due course (they are Only showing for me in this and my other posts too, unfortunately! Cheers)

  10. My control board replacement is due to my original Leaperkim Veteran-450 5A charger going pop when a component and fuse inside fried and burnt, also taking out the Sherman’s control board’s charging circuit, after Only 4 days use! I have had to wait 2 months for a replacement of both the control board and another 5A charger to arrive on the “Slow Boat from China”. More details can be found regarding the charger failure HERE It may be common knowledge to most that due to the way the board is mounted to the heatsink, the whole control board assembly will not come out of the bay without ei

  12. Way back in September last year, I added a second genuine Leaperkim Veteran-450 5A charger to arrive with my Veteran Sherman order, to give myself the option to quick charge if necessary. When the wheel finally arrived in early November, I initially Only used one charger at a time to test that both were working correctly. I think it was most probably only the second time of using one of mine, again just with one on its own, whilst it was nearing 90+% charge I heard a loud "pop" - the charge cycle stopped and I quickly turned off the power supply and unplugged the power lead! When I had a sn
  13. I had previously posted this earlier on in this topic, so you may find some useful info here:
  14. If you are referring to: "splitting the shell" only in order to install the New control board when it finally arrives, I was fortunately able to do it without the need for a Full strip down! I have taken photos during my control board install explaining a small mod necessary to allow easy removal of the control board. It will be definitely be part of my Topic on this dodgy charger issue and as you commented yourself, I also want to bring attention to these failures to help/warn other Sherman owners too!
