I am very new to electrics.
I have a 30 Amp DC power supply and decided to build a small box with an ammeter and 8 pairs of banana plugs so that I could use the one power supply to run all of my chargers with the ammeter showing the total amp draw from my power supply.
Using small basic 3 cell lipo chargers at 2 amps the ammeter on my home made box shows 2 amps,4 with two chargers ,6 with three etc.AS the packs are charging it does drop which all appears normal.
I have just started to charge my 5s4p packs with my schulze charger and my ammeter is indicating that almost 10 amps are being drawn through the system with a charge rate of 5.5 amps .
Does this sound normal?
Does that mean that the charger needs 10 amps coming in to guarantee 5.5 out?
