  1. General DIY Discussions
    I live off grid and use solar to charge a large 24v battery bank for my electricity. I have tried using 24v automotive alternators but cannot figure out how to limit the current of the alternator. The battery bank is large so when the alternator kicks in there is a huge draw and it puts too much...
