Default Schottky Rectifier = Shottky Diode?

Just found this at a local electronic component shop..

http://www.ortodoxism.ro/datasheets/...or/mXrtsvs.pdf

MBR3045PT, Schottky Rectifier, 30A, 45V.. this will work the same as the usual cylinder-shaped ones, just chop one leg off, correct? They don't seem to have any schottkys (MBRxxxx) above 3A that come in that package type.. I just want to make sure they'll do the same job.

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.

Don't chop off a leg. You had might as well use both diodes if you are carrying the weight. Just connect pins 1 & 3 together and you have two diodes in parallel. As previously mentioned, two diodes in parallel make for double the current carrying capability.
