    pebe, fair's fair - I think that comment was unwarranted... After all, it's not about how simple or complex it is, but about who drew it up, even if it's not a new idea. I don't think ANYBODY could claim to be the original designer of such a circuit.

    Perhaps I was a bit brusque - but my sentiments haven't changed.

    Have another look at the circuit. It is a simple bi-phase power supply as found in thousands of circuits. It has no mains fuse and no regulation of any sort - not even a current limiting resistor. Depending on the make, design, and source impedance of transformer, the charging current will be unknown. I certainly wouldn't like to put it forward as a battery charger.

    So I was not a little surprised when navman asked for a credit if the circuit was published.

    The Projects have now been removed and navman has been banned since the abusive posts on this board and in my email box.

    Lets put this behind us and continue to enjoy the rest of the forum.
