yeah.. that sounds about right.. was hoping a way around it. One of the chargers I am using is a Duratrax Intellipeak Digital.. and if I set the charge at 6.5 amp, it trips it right away. If I start it low, and manually turn it up.. no problem.
I converted an old AT supply (10amp on 12v) it has not spike protection. Was hoping to use the one (20amp on 12v) to power everything, but I guess not.. Oh well.
