how much current does the charger draw.An interesting start to the week , strange arcing noises started to emit from the charger .
A trip to the Peace statue , and a rush home to keep infront of the rain drops .
A quick rewire of the charge plug found the outer screw-on cover to have developed a stress crack .
Rewelded the crack with a soldering iron and a quick tape job until I can find some large heat shrink.View attachment 468650 View attachment 468651 View attachment 468652 View attachment 468653
rewired the plug but next time it will be a replacement l think.
House clearing still taking up to much time and the other events are moving closer to fruition.
Charger is a 36/42v 2.5A unit but there is also a voltage present from the battery , l do not know if there is a current limit when backfeed from the charge socket. It did get rather warm , burnt and generally upset with itself.how much current does the charger draw.
So it's around 100w output, even assuming that the charger is only using 'half' the sinewave of AC and allowing for losses in the transformer it shouldn't be drawing more than an amp or so from the mains.Charger is a 36/42v 2.5A unit but there is also a voltage present from the battery , l do not know if there is a current limit when backfeed from the charge socket.

The Charger is almost 5 years old and the black insulated covering is starting to show signs of cracking .
