I'm looking at buying a 12/25 IP67 Victron battery charger to run off a small ( 0.7kva) inverter generator, Specs of the Victron chargers do not show input watts or current. Ive already got what I believe is a quality switch mode battery charger ( NOT a Victrton) but after running it via an energy meter its power factor is poor , around 0.54 to 0.60 . It draws 2.2 amps at 240v to output 21 amps / 12 -14 volts DC .
The Victron specs say the IP 67 chargers ard 95% efficient and comply with the EU power factor standard EN61000 -3-2.
My guess the AC current draw should be around 1.7 amps @ 240v at full 25 amps output. Has anyone measured AC current input of these IP67 chargers before?
Been really happy with my small Victron solar controllers , 75/15 & 100/20 , so I'm hoping the quality, efficiency and ease of use via the app is the same for their battery chargers.
