    Even with all my chargers (and fewer cars), I got careless and let the Crown Vic sit without one for so long that I had to buy it a new battery Sigh, note to self...

    I`m having good luck with the MXS 5 so far. Hard for me to actually discern or identify a difference between that and my previous MUS 4.3, to be honest. (The newer unit does look better on paper.)

    I`m thinking of going with the "little brother" MULTI US 3300...looks about $20 cheaper than the MXS 5.0. I don`t know why they took the waveforms off the front of the MXS vs. the MUS, of course, who could figure out what was going on without looking at the manual, I guess. Maybe 4 steps will make my brain hurt less than 4 steps.

    I’ve had a ctek on my season vehicles since 2011 and they have worked perfectly for me.

    I think it’s extended the battery life and keep me out of trouble. I change batteries at 5 years no matter what. Too many electronics to let it crash the computers. Rather do it on my terms then at a random moment that can be away from home, in the rain or snow.

    I just used the Big White on a new SS BBQ last weekend... it worked stupendously well. The solvents cleaned and left the SS looking sharp as ````!

    Heh heh, well...I`m not FKing my chargers, but I did debate using TTG+ on that new battery before just SprayWaxing it. I still might pull the battery back out and using it on the tray though...bugs me that it isn`t done right even though it does look OK with just the UQW.
