Re: Off-Grid Inverter Battery Charging
When an inverter/charger detects power at its AC IN it switches the loads to the AC source and changes to charging mode. It does not supply power from the batteries in that mode. Never mind the more complex units with load sharing that Bill mentioned; the effect is the same.
