Converter amp draw/temperature sensor with lithium

Steph and Dud B

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know how many amps the converter draws when charging the lithium batteries off shore power? We only have a 15 amp circuit at home and might need to supplement solar in the shoulder seasons. Also, do the batteries/solar controller/converter have a temperature sensor to prevent accidentally trying to charge the lithiums if the temperature drops below freezing? We will store our trailer below freezing but will want it ready to leave for the South mid winter. Hoping we can plug it in, fire up the battery heater pads, and fully charge the batteries before we leave, or when we reach the first campground, which also might be below freezing.

You can set the inverter/charger to limit the incoming shore/genset amp draw when charging.  I’m also pretty sure the lithium batteries that Oliver uses have built-in protection for charging outside the temperature range.
