Kisae ABSO DC-DC chargers

Came across these in another forum, seems only their inverters have threads here.

ABSO DC to DC Battery Chargers - Kisae Technology

Include some solar controller functionality as with the CTEK and some Australian units, but apparently switches between its panel input and alternator input, not combining them.

Haven't even parsed the docs yet, but one issue worth investigating is, apparently by default the charger can continue to draw off your starter battery regardless of charge source being active or not ?? !!

If true, that may mean, unlike every other DCDC charger afaik, you would need a VSR inline as well. But may work well as part of the "LFP - Lead Hybrid" idea as discussed in other threads.

So, certainly not endorsing them here, just starting a thread to collect info as we learn more, and in case anyone here's got one.

Meantime I'll stick with Sterling BB series, not sure whether these even have user-custom adjustable voltage setpoints.
