Re: battery charger for camp off of the power grid
We have 2 deep cycle 12V batteries that are charged by an inexpensive 45W solar cell from Harbor Freight. The batteries are always fully charged when we get to camp and last for 3 or 4 days without much rationing of power. We connected a 1000W inverter that supplies 115v to our lights, small fans and cell phone chargers. Bought the inverter for about $100 on Amazon...the solar cell (there's 3 15W cells connected together) ran about $150 from HF. This has been in place for about 18 months and works really well. When the batteries do get depleted, we just switch over to our generator to supply all the loads and recharge the batteries. If you have any questions about it feel free to send me a message.
Dad, I think I got a 10 point!
