20 Most Recent Camco Copper And Zinc Standard Hwd Water Heater Screw-in Fold Back Element Questions & Answers

Fold-back elements are low-watt-density, so element does not burn out as easily since heating is spread across more surface area. But recovery remains 16 gallon per hour.
20 amp breaker and 12 gauge wire: max 3800 watts
30 amp breaker and 10 gauge wire: max 5800 watt.
4500 watt element heats 20 gallons per hour.
Instead of changing elements: Set thermostats higher so more cold is added to hot water, and then you have more hot water available inside tank.

Automatic battery chargers have complex circuitry that is difficult to test especially when designed and built in a compact package and repairs are best entrusted to someone geared to such work which is outside the scope of general electronics.
