Charging mult. batteries at once.

5 posts in this topic

I would like to charge 2 or 3 batteries at once in my fish house.... I would also like to use the "juice" from all 3 of them to run my furnace, lights, ect. I do have a HONDA generator to run at night when we don't fish on LOTW....

Connect them parallel. Power will draw from them all and one charger will charge them all.

The batteries in my fish house (two) are wired in parallel and feed everything in it. I have a single bank on board charger and charge them both at the same time. In the evening I start my generator and watch a movie as long as I am charging batteries anyway. I run my camputer fans all night and in the morning I start the generator, make a pot of drip coffee and charge them again for a while. I don't know what size your batteries are, but mine are small 30 amp batteries and a six amp on board charger. This works great for me. When I am home I keep the ice house plugged in and my batteries stay conditioned. You may want a charger with more amperage if you have larger batteries.

Yep - connect the batteries in parallel. Positive to positive to positive in this case and negative to negative to negative.

You can get by with a single bank charger, but it'll take longer to charge the three batteries unless you have a high amp single back charger.

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
