A dark day with the Soneils

This morning was a dark morning.

I received the Soneil chargers yesterday around noon and stayed up until 11:30 last night to install them. After installation, I powered them up and all chargers lit up with an orange LED. Yay. This morning, I got up and half of the chargers had a green lit LED and the other half were dark. I used a Kill-a-Watt meter to determine that the dark units were pulling no current at all.

I've heard rumors that Soneils don't like to be attached to a series pack.

It looks like my EV is dead for the near term. Putting the Belktronix system back in with all of its shunt resistors and battery boards does not sound appealing right now.
