I have asked a few times how low a voltage it takes to cause a red light on the charger cord and I had planned to connect a few LONG power cords to make a larger voltage drop to find out. ( still on the to do list).

I can tell you 109 Volts to 125 Volts did work with the original charger cord.

The unit does test more than just input voltage but the only times I have had clicking off/on problems ( no red lights) was with a socket that was not making good contact. The tip of the plug did get warm/hot.

There still is a possibility your charger cord is the problem- I would test at low power 8 amps ( only 2 of the 4 green light on) and use a different socket on a different breaker circuit.

A few of the regulars here use solar and should be able to advice you on what to look for and how to test.
DCFusor and Solar_dave being two.

Loading-grounding-Sine wave-voltage/current drop.

My 500 watt wind generator was not much help in car charging.

That's great !!
DCFusor posted he would drop off Volt charging at times so not to drop his solar battery level.
As I recall before he added more Solar panels he was never charging the Volt to full.
