About this product


Product overview

  • Maximum of 16 volts
  • DO35 case style
  • Tolerance levels of +/- 5%
  • 0.5W small Zener diode

Will this regulate the voltage of a 12v leadacid battery to 12v if put across it terminals as the battery when fully charged shows 12.75v
Asked by: Christopher Rundle
all vehicle batteries actaully output an average of 13.5V. A diode will only work as long as you don't draw more than it's rated max current - in this case less than 50mA at 12V.
