Yep, the low voltage cutoff is why my little solar rig on the trailer will typically shut the works down if I run my lights for about 18hrs. It reaches the point where it just goes "nope, plug the real charger in".
I actually have that setup on my M1082 trailer. I have an interior flood and one set up outside, flag pole lights, rock lights under the bed, and my crane winch is 12v. I run two 12v deep cycles in paradelle. It has a little charger I can run to 120v and it's complemented by a solar panel. It...
Well there are always a percentage of bad reviews on Amazon.
But that's true with all electronics, really.
I'm not dissing NOCO I just want to try something cheap with a reasonable amp output that can be run while attended. NOCO's get a bit pricy in the 6-10a range.
I can coax the magic...
I should have titled the thread "Pulse Maintenance" opposed to charging to clarify. As I said in the post, I'm just looking to see if I can breathe some life into some Hawkers. One of four are fine, but the others could have been dead for years. I already have a PulseTech kit (and it...
Yeah, I have a PulseTech.
Plan to mount it fixed on my M1079 once I get the rest of the solar package lined up.
For now I just want something that works on cloudy days. I wouldn't the the Chinese crap unattended, but for pulsing a 12v they seem to do the same thing (at 8amps).
I've got a set of Hawkers that are not totally "dead" yet. In fact one is holding charge with a sustained drain and appears to be fine.
I have the usual PulseTech solar maintainer, but I ran across this and for the price I have to try it.
Has anyone tinkered with similar (Chinese crap)...
