bilbo,

Thats a great cigrarette lighter adapter that has banana jacks. Do you have to keep the car running to charge the battery? Does the car battery would have any adverse affects by charging while its not running?

Thanks

yes. see my post above. discharging a car battery beyond 5-10% of its capacity will drastically shorten its life. they are not designed for deep discharges. if you don't mind replacing your car battery more often, then go for it.
if it ain't broke, break it.

I can verify what cudaboy is saying, since I ruined my car battery by repeatedly running it way down charging off the cigarette lighter without the car running before someone told me car batteries don't like to be deep cycled. So that adapter is really only a good idea when the car is running. I'm sure you can get away with charging a single 800 mah battery or similar, but anything more and I'd leave the car running. Getting a battery designed to be deep cycled seems like a better idea if you're going to be field charging often.

Die Hard deep cycle marine. You cannot go wrong, we charge 3 folks off this thing all day/weekend and still have room leftover to charge the duralites on my 50 nitro.

The battery was $80 or so, and the charger for it was like $30.

You get what you pay for, unless you are not informed.

PM me if you need the exact model/specs. My friend is the owner, will bug him for you.

Bottom line, that Die Hard is some DEEP MAH STORAGE waiting for your packs!
