Hi all

I finally ordered by Triton (with $10 gift voucher from Tower), and thought I better get an answer on this question from the horses mouth (Great Planes). Here's my question and their response.

1. Charging my 12V power supply at the same time as using it to power my Triton?

Do not attempt to charge your car battery at the same time you are using it to power the Triton. This could be dangerous. It could also damage your charger.

An average car battery contains 700A of power. You would have to cycle that 1600mAh pack over 100 times to drain the automotive battery. If you are using the battery that is in your car to power the Triton, and you are cycling several packs, we would suggest that you disconnect the Triton from time to time and start the car. The auto battery will recharge itself while the car runs.
