    Originally Posted By: HTSS_TR I'm very sure Pro-Logix is a great charger/maintainer(after reading 901Memphis' review). The concern I have is it may consume excessive power in maintainer mode, the tiny maintainer I have uses less than 10W(about 6-8W) in maintainer mode. I don't drive my S2000...
