I only need about 50 watts for my lights on average (can turn off my headlight). With 24 volts that will be 2 amp draw, plus it will be an equal load across 2 batteries and the 1 charger. I was also thinking of doing an individual 12 volt balance charge once a month.

It was a VR-1 from Ebay, build quality look ok poor design, should have been around 85% eff or better. Glad I checked it, its commin out!

Jay64 wrote:Yeah, having the tach as a meter would be awesome. That would help to make some really clean builds. I have never done it before, but I know you can change out the background plate for your tach, so you would even be able to re-calibrate the markings to show true what the needle is pointing at. I think that is a REALLY great idea guys.
