Inverter Question

7 posts in this topic

I am looking for an inexpensive way to power my Cam Corder. Can I use a Gel Cell like the one I use for my Flasher? I am thinking that an inverter with a gel cell should work. The current battery that comes with cam corder is 850 M/A Hours. A gel cell is 7 amp hours. Even with the inverter, this should work. If anyone has done this, I would appreciate some more info.

Thanks

Harris

Yes it will work my Camcorder battery died AGAIN and its the only way I can power it up when I'm away from home its kind of a hassle having the cord plugged in but its functional.

Thanks for the info. I know about the hassle of a cord, I was thinking of a back pack. I am video taping football games here in Michigan, and it is a big hassle when the power goes out. At least I don't have to run laps anymore LOL

Thanks

What about those portable power supplies?

Try Googling Black and Decker Power to Go

It's basically a laptop battery with a plugin.

Yeah that would be easier to carry and less hassle!

I saw a smaller one the other day and I thought about buying it for the boat but it was 70 bucks so I passed.

Amazon currently has the 20w version for 17.91

That's a pretty good price. Even has a battery indicator.

You know, these could really open up a bunch of new options for the portable wink

I smell a mod coming on! I've been thinking about doing a camera mount. Wiring up an adapter plug to an inverter would be a nice addition as well. I use an inverter at work with a marine grade power adapter and it works pretty slick.

    • We actually just watched the first season of this show on Netflix finally. We loved it! We binge watched it and it only took us a little over a week to watch the entire season. We actually just finished watching Breaking Bad this winter and this was the next show we started. Season 2 should be out on Netflix within the next month or so I should think?
    • A lot of great ideas , seems liquid smoke is a fav, lipton is a good thought too. Great looking burglars fellas, and that bacon wrapped meatloaf looks mouth watering thirdeye.  I went back through my pics looking for the open pit burgers but all I found were steaks, but holy moly I must eat burglars a lot Cuz there's a bunch. Think next time I'll mix it up and see if anyone notices, thanks gents and keep the pics coming!!
    •   I agree. I wasn't exactly counting down to the midseason premiere, either, but it was a good, solid episode. I also really liked the clothes line scene--best action sequence in quite some time. I was impressed with the start overall and it's nice to see some sense of urgency and not just Rick moping around licking wounds.   Last night was...okay. Nothing stood out as bad, but it wasn't mind-blowingly good either. I am still reserving judgment for how this season ends, but half two is off to a pretty good start. I just hope they don't go off on a side character episode and kill the momentum they have going...
    • I for got, we added wild rice too!!  and only hand harvested too, I think it makes a huge difference in taste.
    •   Think his staff just wanted a break ........
    • What is your prediction on how soon after ice out that people will be out on Mille Lacs.  I am guessing within a week.   
    • I just pulled the trigger and bought the Milwaukee 1/2 inch brushless fuel drill and the 6 inch K drill setup.  Tested it this past weekend.   Could not be happier. 23 holes and battery still had one bar left. This was in approximately 18-20 inches of good ice. 5.0 battery. 
    • the one mentioned here, they have gone up to $399.99 but they still had free shipping and no has them around here.  they were very pleasant to talk to and get info.
    • One big boy just left Elite and went back to Mathews. Elite is a good shooting bow. 
    •     I'm sure God approves. After all, he's not in charge down here anyway...
