hi all
need some advice on battery charging. if i have 12 v friges lights etc all connected to 2 batteries( agm 100ah, dceep cycle 105 ah) can i just connect a 12 v 7ah battery charger to the system when 240 v is available (mains or generator)
if i can do i need a larger charger( i know this is a bit like how long is a piece of string) considering all the variables.
also, re honda 10i, what amps does its inbuilt gharger put out, and are there any dangers in hooking it into the system

Hi Fred

Most Honda's put out 8 amps but not regulated.

For the total amp hours you have I would go for one of my 25 amp smart chargers or similar Cteks.

I have what sounds like a similar set up in my caravan. I have two 6v 225ah batteries connected in series running a 12v compressor fridge and lights. I have a 10amp smart battery charger that I connect when connected to 240v. I have had this set up for about two and a half years now and have had no problems. Just have to remember to check the water level in the batteries.

I also have two solar panels running througha 20amp charger for bush camping.

Regards Bill
