Re: battery bank dual charger or triple charger?
I'm not familiar with ACR's so I checked out Blue Seas website. If I'm understanding iwhat I read correctly, the ACR will not charge either battery optimally making the use of different battery types a problem? I thought that was one of the advantages of an echo charger system. Not sure what I'm missing here.
The ACR is simply a switch that combines or disconnects 2 separate batteries or banks of batteries. If the ACR detects a certain charging voltage on 1 bank then it combines the other bank that it is connected to. It disconnects the banks when the voltage drops below a preset level. It cannot set a voltage for battery type; the charger must do that.
