Whats the Deal with DC
If I am charging on my DC charger (7 cells) GWS MC2002 QUICK CHARGER how do I hook this up to a DC source...I have had mixed results
1. Car Battery (Engine Running)
2. Car Battery (Engine Off)
3. Car Battery (extra lying around the shop)
4. Expensive AC power supply converter.
I have been told by different people that their was the only way.

Since the GWS MC2002 QUICK CHARGER has an input voltage range from 9-15 volts, all of the 4 ways you listed above will work just fine.
Be suspicious of folks that suggest "my way or the highway".

As Greg says any of those should work (unless 3 no longer has a good charge).
Things that can upset chargers :
- Starting with the engine running then switching the engine off (sudden voltage drop)
- Low current AC power supplies (it's the current delivery not the price which the charger sees )
- unregulated AC power supplies (typical wall warts or car battery chargers).
