Posted By: GBP-KeithI thought that some sort of blocking diode would be the answer but one charger manufacturer said that the charger will fail to see the batteries.
Posted By: Ed DaviesYou'd put the diode in the charge lead and connect the sense leads directly, of course. The charger would still get confused but might be less likely to be damaged.
Posted By: GBP-KeithThe problem that I see with 'earlier' dump loading is that it can waste energy (by this I mean put it where it is not actually needed) and thus prevent the batteries from filling completely during the windy period.
Posted By: davidfreeboroughWhat kind of diode are you thinking of? A rectifier diode will protect against reverse voltage, but only drop 0.6-1V when conducting in the forward direction.
