1. Remove univolt

3. Install three stage intelligent charger
4. Win!

The diodes and capacitors are dying. Time for a new one. Many to choose from.
Thankfully they wont break the bank.

Time to upgrade. Recycle the univolt or make a doorstop out of it.

good move. The Univolts are amazingly resilient, mine is original 66...but when they overcharge or die...you did the right thing for sure
