Does anyone have an idea on the max current available at the BBQ pit/charging station at Baylands? If I want to charged a 2-3 batteries quickly, I could use around 800-1000W, so maybe 6-9 amps. But I don't want to ruin everyone's day by tripping a breaker so I thought I would ask here first. Does anyone know? Or if anyone has tripped a breaker at the field, what where you doing when it happened (so I can get an idea of where the limit might be)?

As far as I'm aware the only time if trips is when too many people are using it, or equipment is being used on an extension cord.

I do not know the at which point the breaker trip, or what the main breaker is set at, I'd image at the least it's 20a if not 40. That's only a guess of the top of my head when thinking about commercial building stuff.

Please make sure you introduce yourself in the first thread.

The max that each of the sides of there should be is 20a. I have been there and charged at 500w or so on a busy weekend day with lots of chargers going.You should be fine on most days on a really busy weekend you might want to use caution or use one of the less busy bbq pits

The chargers are operating for more than 3-hours (at least that is what I have witnessed when I flew here) so the max current for any CIRCUIT would be 16-Amps. What we do not know is if any of the BBQ pits share the same circuit. We can assume that every pit has it's own circuit but we do not know this for sure. What we really should find out is where these circuits are fed from and how do we get access to reset the breakers.

I don't follow the logic here. How does the 3-hour amount of time tell us anything about the circuit capacity?
