Re: [EVDL] Zener regs: Can I get use 'em & still get a full charge?

Careful, Lee's Zener regs lessen charging current through the battery by up to
0.5 A, not limit it to 0.5 A. It makes overcharge less likely, but it can still
occur. If you are blasting the batteries with 30 A, these regs will limit it to
29.5 A through the batteries.

... By
limiting charge current near the end of charge to below 0.5A, zener regs
will keep full batteries from overcharging (and ruining expensive AGMs)
while the rest of the string finishes charging.
