If you are posting on an expert forum
SOT-23 SOT-323 etcTry using Google once in a while
Don't know about that. It's 2016.I thought lineair regulation, with it's inefficiency and heat, was a thing of the past.How much current are we talking about.Nowadays you can get 2Amp 3mm x 3mm smd MPPT chips (e.g. LT3652) that put more current into the battery than the solar panel delivers.A 15Amp MPPT charger in a case is available from ~US$7.50 on ebay, shipped.Leo..
As you wish
hence SOT == select on test. Standard industry abbreviation. I should have explained it.
Oh well....my interpretation is one of many.... as I said, I should have explained itSOT is commonly used in the UK on schematics. As is TBA for components whose value is unknown at the time of drawing.sorry for any confusionAllan
