We're doing a battery setup for camp lighting at night to be recharged in the afternoons via generator. Last year we had all kinds of trouble getting enough charge into the batteries even with hours and hours of generator use and I think the problem was the charger. It looked pretty cheap and I think it probably had very low output current, though not sure.
This year we are doing it proper, planning our power loads and such. I am going to get a 110Ah deep cycle battery and rent a Honda-EU 1000W generator, and ideally I would like to be able to put 50Ah into this battery in an afternoon, maybe 4 hours of generator use, which means I need about, what, 15A of output current?
Prices for these chargers seem to start around $50 and go well into the hundreds. Money is a bit tight. I found this guy for $66: http://www.batterystuff.com/battery-cha ... 1500A.html
. Does anyone know if this would work? It seems like it would but I am suspicious that it is so much cheaper than the others. Can anyone recommend a good charger?
