I have a LiFePO4 battery pack that reached 14.3VDC when fully charged. When connected to the AAP it will not power on. The specs say it can receive up to 15VDC input and also has a safety mechanism to not power on during over-voltage condition. I drained the battery down to below 14VDC and then the AAP would power on. Thought I blew up another AAP, which ZWO is sending a replacement power board to fix.

 

Has anyone else experience this situation?

Exactly what battery and battery charger are you using?

Bioenno BLF-1220A 12V, 20Ah Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) Battery and the 14.6V 4A charger that goes with it.
