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.

    • well factor in cost of living and its a wash
    • Same ol story. The Liberals cant handle defeat. Like when Gore lost and Kerry lost. They just cant handle that there are people outside of NY and California and that they own guns, drive pick ups and vote.
    • My brother-in-law is serious about his whiskey, and he usually drinks either Crown or Pendleton.  My wife has drank Windsor for years.     Can't stand the stuff myself - probably got sick from overloading on it in my younger days.  Strictly beer for me - preferably a good craft beer, but normally Grain Belt or Schell's if it's available.    
    • Their, there. I was.  Not overly excited by anything I saw. Did get to shoot the Gearhead bow and was fairly impressed. Some uniqueness to this bow, and completely reversible right to left so dealers should like that as far as reduced inventory they must carry.  And the lightest crossbow out there. The new Halon shoots extremely well but like its predecessor just too heavy for my taste.  The Bowtech Reign felt pretty good, but again nothing special.  Everyone makes a roto molded cooler, trail camera, and broadhead nowdays. Liked the cast aluminum tree stands from Rivers Edge at a better price point than others.  Hawk is making some neat treestands and accessories. Goldtip was doing a demo bending their arrows vs other brands and was quite amazing how much farther theirs would bend before breaking, and how much their arrow recovered (would not take a set) after bending vs the other brands. I might switch just because of the durability and straightness factor. Got to hold the new world record Tennessee non-typ.  That's a lot of horn.
    • Therefore, if there is no point in making a point, that makes it a moot post to make a point that there is no point. so I'd like to point out that I find this entire dialogue pointless.    Sillytown has run amuck. 
    • Ayup. They asked me to take his place, but I can't stand Rawlings.    http://www.gasmonkeygarage.com/yes-aaron-the-bearded-wonder-is-leaving-gas-monkey-garage/
    • That does look like a fun day!
    • What? This can't be. Aaron's the real car building brains of this show. Richard is just the clown. Together they made it work. Apart?
