whereas the 12v cigarette socket in gc only put out 65w from the centre socket.
didn't try your suggestion because of the way i had the wiring to the fridge and to the arkpak .would have to had to unload everything to untangle my wires
It's correct at reading what's going into the battery, not what is being taken out of the port. Unless your charger/wiring is 100% efficient (it's not). There's a logic gap.
