I bought a smart charger (Powerex/Maha C204F, I think). If I charge from a vehicle, my battery voltage may drop when I start the vehicle. Will this make the circuitry in the charger start over?

If the charger is smart, it should not hurt anything, right?

Also, what is the effect of high voltage? I am told sometimes motorcycles may go as high as 16 volts when the bike (and alternator) are warmed up and 'at speed'.

I have a voltmeter with a memory function, but it is 0 degrees celsius outside so I don't want to ride it and take a measurement just now.

Any thoughts?
