Or does it dump all power to the load?
Looks like you "Might" be able to do it both ways. Or actually three total.
1. Standard discharge 80watt max
2. Regen discharge
a. To input(car battery, or deep cycle)
b. To Channel(dump power to load connected to other channel
c. To Channel charge other battery(supposed to be a function added in future update.)
3. Lipo Extended Discharge(found on page 38,39.) This uses a combo of standard discharge PLUS a load connected to positive lead between battery and charger.
I believe with all of these methods it uses constant amp until Target voltage is reached then switched to constant voltage and balancing cell voltages until complete.
FINE PRINT: This is how I read and understand the manual. I will try each once I have the charger. If anything differs I will edit and or delete post to prevent spread of false info.
