Re: Getting ready to add shore power
From what I understand a float charger does not actually charge. It keeps a fully charged battery fully charged. The battery charger I have will charge the battery as well as maintain it once it is fully charged.
Yes, but with such a small output it will take a long, long, long time. Days if the battery is down much.
A battery monitor as an example considers a battery fully charged when the current is less than 2% of bank size. Your charger is smaller than that 2%.
