I pressed one of the sellers of them in china, had to push pretty hard, but got a grudging admission after a bit of to and fro stuff.

The argument initially was PWM was the same :shock: , which we both know is definitely not the case.

Hi tracker,

thanks for you help, you are really very helpful.


what i understand from you idea is, i should connect adopter directly to my battery through diode.

but i have one question, how this will protect my battery from overcharging through adopter. and plz suggest me minimum ratting of adopter should i use to run my load.

and please specify which diode should i use.
