[Oeva-list] PFC 20 charger configuration question

I set mine for just a bit more than the usual charging time. If your 
batteries go into thermal runaway, the voltage will drop and it will not 
shut off or cut back the current (constant voltage mode).

So set the timer for the max time of charge you would expect, set the 
switches so it counts from the beginning of charge (not CV time).

Of course, you really don't need it most of the time--but it can be 
useful as a backup shut-off when things aren't going right.
