Converter/Charger

4 posts in this topic

For people looking for a simple way to upgrade your houses so they can run of a generator, I recently installed the Inteli Power 45 amp converter with charge wizard. Very slick deal, hook it to the battery and plug it in. Converts to 12V when you draw, when there is no draw it charges the battery. Has float charger for down times to keep battery fresh. Much simpler than I thought it was going to be. grin.gif

I know more people are turning to gasoline generators at their fishhouse but I really like my wind-generator. Upto 400 Watts of charging and in the winter there is always wind. Actually, I usally shut it down while fishing and then let it run and recharge the batteries while I am away. Keeps my power hog laptop running along with the satalite radio and DVD player. oh ya, and the lights too....

Do you keep your house on clear lake??? That house there is the only house that have a wind generator like mine around here that I have seen.

Yes, the ugly sea foam green one. I tried a solar pannel first and that generated enough for the lights and radio but could not keep the batteries up when I was multi-tasking(fishing & laptop).

For anyone eyeing up my toys, don't bother breaking in, they leave with me, nothing is left in the house but the coffee pot, a $20 car stereo, and a couple slip bobers when I leave.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
