No battery needed - yet.

It isnít like an alternator at all. It is like a computer power supply and will run the trailer and electronics quite safely without and battery. It provides itís own regulation and is not dependant on a battery to keep the power steady.



Also I think the Intellipower would be able to handle a large load rejection, such as disconnecting a charging battery better than a univolt because it doesnít use capacitors for filtering like the univolt does. Switching power supplies are built to deal with large harmonic loads so I think it would actually survive quite well.

So, that's a good thing. For once, newer IS better.

Yes it is a good think. If a power supplu can be made to deliver smooth power to sensative componants like the CPU while also powering up noise generating devices like CD/DVD Roms they have to be good...
