On the tractor I'm already planning on charging each of the pack batteries individually with one 12V charger, it would just add to the charge time.
For summer use/play it isn't a problem but later on in the year I want to have lights on in the evening and I have worked out that I will need a larger battery then I want to give space for. I will have a small battery but want the converter to charge it from the pack.
Mainly I wanted to use one just to see what they are like to use before I get a bigger more costly one for the car.
So I have figured out that most automotive stuff expects 13.8V and that 12V may cause a slightly low voltage to be seen and can't charge a battery.
What effect does isolation and no isolation cause?
