    Jim, if you'd leave a little of the message you're replying to at
    the top of your reply ("context") we'd all be able to see to whom
    you're replying without having to examine the header trail. Thanks.


    Anyway, It depends on how your charger determines that the battery
    has been fully charged and puts it on trickle charge.

    With the lock load on it it may determine that it _never_ gets fully
    charged and may just keep pumping current into it, along with the
    lock.

    By using the charger in the way it was intended to be used and
    switching between the adapter and the battery when you get a mains
    failure, there will _never_ be any interaction between the lock and
    the charger, eliminating any problem that might crop up there.
    Besides, relays are cheap. :)

    John,

    The charger is a Bosch KE1206E... it says 'this appliance has an
    electronic control system. The charging procedure is interrupted as
    soon as a terminal voltage of 14.1 V is reached. The battery is now
    fully charged. The charging procedure resumes automatically if the
    battery voltage drops to 12.8 V due to self discharge. Overloading of
    the battery and the accompaying emission of dangerous gases are
    effectively prevented. The battery charger can remain connected to the
    battery for several days'

    As you will have gathered by now, I am a newbe to forums and to
    electronics. Thanks again for your assistance and patience.
