Using the DC Charge Cable, xPower can be recharged as you drive. Simply plug either end of the DC Charge Cable into xPower's DC Power Socket, and the other end into the vehicle's cigarette lighter socket or 12 Volt accessory outlet. Most of the xPower's capacity will be restored in 1 to 3 hours while the motor is running. Although the automatic charge regulation circuitry in xPower does not operate with this charging method, most vehicle voltage regulators will ensure xPower is not overcharged. This charging method must not be sued with vehicles having abnormally high voltage electrical systems that operate above 15 Volts DC.

I'm not quite ready to delve into solar yet.
FIGJAM wrote:Illy, good to see you back.
Some of those HF solar chargers were for trickle charge maintenance, so read them carefully.
I think I'll call a golf cart place and see what charge rate the coreses use.

FIGJAM wrote:Ok, here's the latest info.
The chargers the courses use charge at a very high rate to begin with, then drop to a trickle to top off.
I don't care if it's topped off if I can go from a 50% charge to 90% in an hour, that will work great!
I also got the battery reps cell number, so I can verify this info when he's not so busy.
Oh. I bring 2 of those batteries. 1 for the trike and 1 for the camp lights, tunes, and cooler.

Not a good idea.

The 12 volt charger port on the EU is just about worthless.
You are better off buying a multistage smart charger and plugging it into the generator to charge your batteries. Faster and protects the battery with a proper charger.
