The Bavaria PSU will "outperform" most chargers on the market today.

Ideally, a Power Supply (PSU) should be able to maintain an output voltage that's higher than the "minimum required input voltage" of the charger. With normal switch mode PSU's, the output voltage gets lower, the harder a PSU works, but the Bavaria PSU has a special circuit to boost the output voltage during high Watt demands.

Most field chargers can only operate on supply voltages between 9V and 15V. Some even need a minimum of 11V input voltage (for example Swallow chargers). Therefore, if the supply voltage drops below the "minimum required input voltage", the charger will not be able to charge anymore. In such an event, some chargers display a "Low Input Voltage" error message and stop charging, while others just switch off.

The output voltages that were measured under actual charging conditions, confirm that the special circuit that's built into the Bavaria PSU, boosts the output voltage during high Watt demands. Even with extremely high charge rates, the output voltage will stay close to 12Volts, ensuring a high enough supply voltage to the charger.
 

Typical output voltages under various load conditions:
    12.9V at 48W  (3.7A)  - charging 3S LiPo's (8 Ni-Cd's)  @ 5A
    12.2V at 148W  (12A)  - charging 6S LiPo's (15 Ni-Cd's)  @ 5A
    11.9V at 240W
* (20A)  - charging 10S LiPo's (23 Ni-Cd's)  @ 5A


* Warning
It's not recommended to charge at these high rates.  We found that the banana plugs on charger leads overheated quite rapidly.
