Yes, it is actually ultra fast switching schottky diode rated up to 30A @ 45V. It is better spec than the cylindrical ones ( read : overkill ).
If you chop one leg, the amp is reduce to 15A.
Once I use SBL3040 for QC2 and V7.1
Actually I get no effect at all ( no performance loss or gain ) ..... it just more weight, more cables and more headche.
Now I keep everything simple and yet I'm still getting no performance loss or gain without schottky. One thing I know my life become easier, and my cars look neat and tidy.
