Quote:I read somewhere that the Battery Tender Jr. gets really hot (hotter than you'd feel comfortable with leaving it plugged in and unattended), can anyone confirm this? I'd like to replace my 12v charger (a very nice, standard auto/RV one) with a low power BT of some sort.

“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe
