Flasher Road Charge?

Recommended Posts

I have a Stay-n-Charge system to charge a 12V battery in my pull behind fish house from my Jeep while I drive down the road. Never need to hook up a battery charger when I get home. Was thinking the other day that it would be nice to charge my Marcum in the same way. Kind of like charging a cell phone from the cigarrete lighter. Would this be possible?

I recently saw a charger for a gel cell. It was at Gander and it was a simple operation. A 12v plug in and two alligator clips. I did not look at the amp output but I seem to recall it was designed for a gel cell so it should be ok to charge. I also charge my AA batteries for flash light and GPS. I want to make charging batteries as simple as I can.

Good Luck!

How does that stay n charge work. Guess I'm still confused even after checking out their HSOforum. I'm curious becuause I have a new wheelhouse and trying to figure out the best way to charge the batteries, especially on trips.

I just picked up a unit that Nature Vision sells for its Aqua-view camera.

Cigarette lighter plug-in to 2 alligator clips.

It says it's intended to be used to power the Aqua-view, but I was hoping I could use it to charge my 12v/7amp batteries. That's my hope anyhow.

I didn't see any specs to see what the amp output is, but I'll look into it. Anyone else know?

I found it at Sportsmans Warehouse in Woodbury.

reelguy:

The stay n charge is a great system. It basicly is a DC charge from your alternator through 10 gauge wire on a (30) amp breaker I believe.

You have a hot & neg lead off your charging system to the rear of the truck. The NEG you connect somewhere on rear frame/bumper area. The plug receives a hot/neg lead from your fish house battery and thats it !!

You start your truck and the "alternator" feeds the battery what it requires. DC charged as opposed to Ac to DC converted from a house charger. Far better charge for the battery and you touch or lift nothing smile.gif

I use two deep cycles wired parallel hooked up to a stay n charge original model. Lots of power and @ full capacity on demand charging. It will bring a totally drained battery to full cxharge in less then a half hour. Drive to the lake its charged, return drive home its charged again. It will "idle" charge as well but driving really knocks it out in a hurry. Two batteries fully charged last me an entire day and night without starting the truck.

    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
