Re: Island Packet 35
Watts = amps x volts. Law of physics, no room for maneuvering.
It was just my gut, but 30 amps of charge seemed like alot from that setup. I wondered if I could really tell the scale of the panels, but the fact that they are not all well angled into the sun (which is normal) should degrade even rated capability. Of course, anything less than ideal conditions would do so.
Glad to hear they seem to be getting the job done, but I wonder how accurate the controllers are and how the OP knows it's really fully charging. Most shore powered chargers are bad enough that they appear to be fully charging, but are not really doing so.
