Hi, Attempted to charge my PP2 via the 240V AC -DC charger but initially didn't work. Tried checking for DC volts at the end plug but nothing. Went online for a bit then went back into the shed & plugged in the 240V AC -DC & all is well, charging light on the PP2. Positive that my 240V source is fine, no issues with connectivity so question is: Is this normal for the AC - DC & DC - DC charges? If so we I will need to pay more attention to the charging system I propose to use & just not plug it in and expect it to work first time.
Hi Bret, Just checked the voltage, had to wiggle the probes of my volt meter about but got a steady 20.3V DC. However the only way I can get it to work on my PP2 is to insert the plug then apply a small amount of tension on the cord. If I simply just plug it in, the lights come on for a short period of time then go out. Currently I am putting a small weight on the lead over the top of the PP2 & it works fine, going from charge to conditioning. I bought this online interstate approx. 6mths ago.
Hi, is ok to run a fridge directly off the powerpack 2 terminals while a solar panel is also connected to the terminals. I use the accessory plug socket but the connection is unreliable and I'd like to run it directly off the terminals if possible. thanks
I note from previous comments you say you cannot run a fridge whist charging the battery in the powerpack 2? Am I reading this wrong because that seems odd, if this is the case how am I going to run my fridge whilst recharging the battery when I am camping?
you will note that is only related to AC home charge or DC car charge the reason for that is it is only a 1.5A/h which is a trickle charge, but you can do an external charge with Solar panels and discharge at the same time as long as thge solar panels put more then 1.5A/h charge back into the battery.
