Home Forums General Discussion Off-grid stereo what to do? Re: Off-grid stereo what to do?


oops I reread your first post.

You are not really off the grid, it reads as though you are creating a backup supply/UPS?

You say you have a 6 amp charger, If you are wanting to maintain some lights and tunes when you lose power. Get a bigger battery. Amps over time is what needs to be added to the equation. A motorcycle battery, which is not deep cycle and will not last you very long might provide you a couple hours at a 5 amp draw. Where if you had a pair 220 amp/hour deep cycle battery you could run your 5 amp load +20 hours and not take the battery below 50% discharge.
