XLR Charger Arrives

The XLR charger came in the mail today. I was a little worried because it was advertised as 24V output and after I bought it I realized that you really need something like 28V to charge a 24V lead acid battery. The 12V float charger I have is actually 15V at 150mA.

The charger was advertised as being used to charge electric wheelchair batteries though, so I didn’t worry too much. I checked the output voltage and it came it at 27.3V. Not too bad.

The connection between the panel mount XLR and the charger was a little disappointing though. It’s tight. Really tight. I’ve been trying to break it in, but I may have to take the panel mount apart and grind down the poka-yoke feature. Just enough to let it slide on though, not enough to remove it completely. It’s there for a reason.
