In order to maximise the output from a Victron Blue Smart IP65 24V 13 Amp Battery Charger, what AC input power is required @240v in watts ? The info is required so I can assess the size of generator required to run the charger remotely.

P = U x I

P = 28v (absorption voltage) x 13A

P = 364W + some conversion losses

P = should be around 400W at the AC input

The AC input current should be also printed on the device.
