AFAIK Kenyon has a dedicated 14.4 Volt inverter and the 12V one doesn't like higher voltage.

I learned this from a fellow operator who had just that issue and bought the proper inverter from Ken-Lab.

Dear Georgios
we pushed kenlab beginning of that year to make a redesign of the inverter.
Some operators blew the inverter cause of the the overvoltage of Liion Batteries when they are fully charged.
The redesign works very well but if you are useing normal 12 Volt batteries the gyro runs slower. Ask us for an upgrade
of your old inverter
