Home Forums General Discussion Deep Cycle Battery charge from my car? Re: Deep Cycle Battery charge from my car?


There are too many variables for a clear answer, but elnav has given some good info. It’s nice to use the “free electricity” created by your car. One thing that would help would be a low voltage disconnect. That way you can be sure the car will start in the morning and you are not late to work!

I use old fashion kerosene lamps for light and a propane fridge from a camper. I can always count on them to work.

Good luck!
