[TenTec] Argonaut 5 Supply Voltage sensitivity
Thu, 31 Oct 2002 15:22:26 -0500
I've run it down to as far as 10V. (!) Accidently. The processor didn't
reset, but funny things started to happen. I called TenTec about this, and
Paul said 12V is the lower limit. I run mine off a deep-discharge auto
battery, so I put an RV charger on the battery to make sure it doesn't droop
too far if the solar panel is in overcast. The Argonaut V is very small, but
I'm not sure it's cut out to be a camping rig.

If an Argonaut 5 owner would be so kind, I'd like to know how the rig
behaves as voltage is decreased.
I've tried using my Scout on batteries for portable use and I was quite
disappointed in it's behavior after
the battery sagged a little.
