Re: DC-DC Converter always on

I was wondering how you determined that the 12V battery is being charged when the main battery is being charged.

Re: Always on lighter/12v port - Charging battery banks

Would be nice to have all the installation photos, specially for the ones that connect directly to the 12V Contactor on the battery pack...I think @Aerowhatt has this type of setup...anyone else ? I'm looking to plug a 48V 3kWh battery bank to as 12V-48V 10A boost converter to trickle charge from th...
