I agree with Ralph.  My PFC-20 will be here sometime this week.  Lead time
is a bit long (several months).  I had been using a Russco charger (about
$800) but after 2 trips to the factory (house in Grants Pass, OR) Russ could
not get it to work and I gave up.

There is the Zivan (about $900) Electro Auto carries both the Russco and
Zivan chargers.  I have not heard anything about their quality though.

The PFCs have an excellent reputation.
