An even simpler method to grid charge an Insight battery pack, is shown here...

Picasa Web Albums - Jim - Battery Trick...

Take note that the electrical isolation on my Variac setup would trip the GFC garage outlet in the winter, when the car came into the garage with wet salt/snow mix on the tires. Other than this, it worked great for about two years before I broke down and built the Dabrowski charger.

Check out picture 18 for the Variac setup.

Jim.

I was able to hook the harness up in mine without removing the battery, and I am not a small guy! I'm not saying it was easy, and I'm not saying I didn't cut the crap out of myself on all the sharp aluminum inside the housing, but I did it.

It would be best to train a small monkey, or possibly a toddler, to hook up that last positive lead way down in the middle with the double spade connectors! Not fun!
