Default Troubleshoot: Charger/Power Supply tripping.

Last weekend I was charging two batteries and the power supply shut off. Power supply was a year old, 30amp, 12volt unit. Charger is a Hyperion EOS0615i Duo3.

The charger is 1.5 years old. So back to last weekend. I unplugged everything and restarted the charge process. But a few moments later the p/s shut down. Thinking my power supply had just gone bad I ordered a new one, same thing.

Today I plugged in the p/s and powered it up. Then as soon as I started to plug the charger in the p/s tripped....instantly. Moved to a couple outlets with same result. Then took the charger to a friends' p/s and everything worked fine.

So I have a problem narrowed down to this p/s obviously. I left the previous p/s at home so I'll try it later tonight. But I'm sure it will just trip like it had done, and like this new one is doing.

So I don't know if I need to set something up with this new power or not.

What model power supply? What size batteries and what charge rate are you using? Has it gone up recently?
