Title: David Ballinger—The Wincharger Guru
Post by: Mike on December 05, 2018, 07:54:58 AM
The legendary Wincharger collector and historian David Ballinger of Burlington, Iowa passed away last week.  David was "The Wincharger Guru."  His wife Jean gave him that title but it was absolutely true.  He was by far the most knowledgeable person I've ever met on Wincharger 6V machines.  He was a good friend and my go to guy whenever I had a question about a 6V Wincharger.  David contributed many of the photos and literature on the Wincharger website and was a frequent visitor to the forum.  He was a passionate collector of both literature and hardware and for many years he would display his collection and share his knowledge at various farm shows.  He even made the cover of Farm Collector Magazine.
