Re: Twizy Charging Question - Fan over run.

My question wasn't really about why there is a fan , that is obvious when you consider the amps flowing through. Look at how warm Rechargeable batteries get when fast charged or how warm the charger gets.

I was more interested in finding out if the fan should switch off after the charge and all has cooled down?

I don't want to have to wait up at night just to go and unplug it from the mains after it is charged to stop the fan running.

Thanks for your reply, the manual talks about optimum charging temps and about being in a garage when charging. It wasn't that warm when I last charged it and it was only a top up charge (15%) but the fan was still running several hours latter.
