HI
I read on a previous post (cann't find it again) that a few had fitted Projecta 50a chargers , but were running them on 25a as 50a was too high,(300a batterys)

Wondering if I can get any feed back as to what they are doing now ?

Reason I'm interested is, looking at chargers and a 35a projecta is cheaper and maybe big enough

Cheers Ken

have a talk with the battery suppliers as to charge current per battery that is acceptable, but generally about 10amps per battery and occasionally give them a heavier charge rate. Projecta charge o/p current can be set very easily.

Hi Ken

I have just installed a projecta 35Amp - This is a far better charger than the original supplied in BT's. You are correct re the need to consider size - it should be about 10% of total capacity - the projecta also has a Power supply mode which is far better when hooked up to 240v for any lenght of time as it supplies a constant 38volts and regulates the current depending on load ie the batteries are actually on float and no risk of over charging.
