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.

    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
