If your over voltage protection is activated due to a failed regulator, you are then on battery power only to operate your equipment. If you use 12 amps an hour, you need to find a place to land in an hours time. If you use 24 amps an hour, you need to find a place to land in a 1/2 hour. Hope this clarifies things.
Hi Kathy, I believe I just spoke to you on the phone about chargers for my EarthX. Thanks for answering all my questions!
I understand the battery is designed to provide power as rated after an Overvoltage event, it is a new system added to the airplane and thinking through Murphy’s law. I also have thought through the same senario with my lead acid battery. I really can’t wait to hit the starter button with my new EarthX!
