Byron, I design software for a living, I know all about compromises.
I also know that a few small easy changes can add up to to real solid improvements. I know that I always analyze the bottlenecks to find out where I can make the most improvements with the least work.
I know that there are a handful of companies designing after market chargers and inverters because there is a market for systems that actually work.
Which implies something don't ya think?
If the PD in my scamp
did it's job correctly (notice I didn't say "good enough for you") would I be having this conversation with you?
"Is good enough for 98% of the population" is:
3) Not something I would use to bolster my arguments.
98% of the population doesn't know that they are replacing their batteries more often than they should have to. It wears out and they go replace it. They grumble that three years isn't a long time but...
I actually looked at the interstate site where it MENTIONED that the average battery lasted 3 years... It has ZERO information other than sales junk.
Byron, I have an education which allows me to, and I have read enough to understand the issues involved.
I do not expect anyone with an attitude of "don't worry" to participate. Get rid of your meters! I encourage that!
And for the record, I am living in my scamp
, in a state park. I am enjoying my scamp
