15V as shack voltage?

 Date: August 9, 2021

I “standardized” 15V as my shack and portable voltage, because

  • It’s usually within the tolerated voltage range of my trx’es
  • I can run and charge all devices using a 15V USB-C PD adapter using off-the-shelf USB chargers and powerbanks
  • My 6.6Ah LiFePo is able to reach 100% SOC (14.6V) when applying 15V without additional circuits thanks to its internal charge controller


  • This is pretty much the upper tolerated limit

This reduces complexity in the shack quite a bit.
