Hi all, here is a video showing dragons circuit variation in action.

The circuit with the single battery powering the boost converter and so being discharged and charged intermittently, while also powering a resistor bank load.
Here is circuits drawn by dragon, this video is based on the bottom circuit.

As you can see, the volt meter is showing the 12 volt tractor battery being discharged and charged.
The 30 watt-.5 ohm resistor bank heats up rather quickly.

The 12 volt battery resting voltage was 12.57 volts and recovers to that or just below after an hour or so.

I will test this variation some more, though i still feel the dual battery version might be more efficient, then the batteries can be swapped, we shall see.
peace love light
