You can use some math to work out power input in different scenarios. The unit puts out as much power as it gets in, less a bit for inefficiency. Then you can use the formula Watts = Volts x Amps to do some calculations. The rated output power is 360 Watts. The rated efficiency is 87%

For example if the output was 12 volts at 30 amps that represents 12 x 30 = 360 Watts. The input power needs to be a bit more than 360 watts to account for inefficiency. The efficiency factor means the input power needs to be 414 Watts. If you want to calculate what the input current would be if the input voltage were 13 volts then putting the values of 13 volts and 414 watts into the formula gets you 31.84 Amps
