mate, your tank batt. will not have (+) access to your generator because of the diode and will not overload it.Originally Posted by Mr Crown
if you have found a diode suitable for very high amp (30-70 amp) please let me know.
the diode setup is best used if your tank batt. is a sealed lead acid bec. this batteries only has a very low amp (eg. 0.4 - 2.5) and is being used by some members for the purpose of surviving the crank.
diode also tend to reduce some 0.7v of the power.
