small 12V charging question

6 posts in this topic

Will a (110) charger you get with your flashers & cameras charge "multiple" batteries connected in parallel @ the same time ?

I'm getting (2) new 12V 7 amp batteries to power all my led lighting and low amp accessories and putting them in a portable case.

Upon "recharge" which should be a very minimul need I was wondering if the normal (110) charger from my LX-3 or aqua view would top off these batteries equally @ the same time.

I would stick to the charger that you got with the Marcum. I dont know how charging with 110 would effect it and it may void a warranty?

That was my intention to use the 500MA charger you get with the 7amp batteries for items such as the Marcum LX-3.

I was just curious if (2) hooked in parallel would charge as (1) ?

Yes, but it will take approximately twice as long.

I wouldnt charge them in parallel... I have charged 12V that way before and it worked fine when the batteries were all at an equal state of charge.. when they werent, it fried a battery.

If you live in the cities, axman surplus has some good 12v chargers for about $10-$12. You'll have to add the wire leads yourself. They have charging indcator lights and automaticly shut off at full charge.

I know it is essential to make sure the batteries are of same model, age and charge. The larger 12V deep cycles I do the same by buying (2) new ones of same identity and bring to a full charge before I connect them parallel and charge as such there after!!

      The local state parks are also an option. Very modest yearly fee there also. Cliff

      Absolutely. I'd never get mad at a guy squirrel hunting while I'm deer hunting. Thats just public land hunting. Now if he shot at squirrels very close to me that's different. Maybe the guys I talked to had a bad experience but it isn't that frequent. That's what I hope anyway.

      Looks like the forest service campgrounds charge a modest fee.  But the are pretty nice.   Fall lake, fenske lake are a couple to consider

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      We have had a great week of fishing with a few showers and strong winds.

      Up in Canada, jigging on reefs and underwater humps are producing the best in 22-28 ft. with gold, pink and orange jigs. Pulling spinners is also an option on reefs in 22-24 ft of water.

      In Minnesota, walleyes and perch have been caught pulling spinners in 18-28 ft. West of Four Blocks, East of Crow Duck and East of Garden Islands, with black and gold being the most effective.

      On both sides, muskies have been aggressive when throwing buck tails and top waters on rock reefs.  The algae bloom has slowly begun to pick up, however, fish are still visible.

      We hope to see you soon!

      I have had very good success the past few days using my standard lindy/1/2 crawler rigs. All fish were caught in sand/rock transition areas in 16' to 24' depths. Mornings were best from 8:00am to noon. Key factors were to look for pods of fish before even dropping a line! Some fish would bite and some would not. I did not spend much time on pods that would not bite! 2 passes and I was gone if we did not get a fish! Found many fish in spots that I have not fished all summer! Dumb ones I guess! Still tasted the same though! Cliff

      I hunt these WMA's routinely. It's not as bad as they say. Most of the time you're fine but you have to be prepared to have your hunt completely ruined and be able to laugh it off and move on. The land belongs to all of us. That said, if someone actually shot at a squirrel in a tree I'm sitting in, I might be tempted to shoot back.(kidding!)  Hard to imagine that really happened! I would say 75% of the time you have these places to yourself. It helps to pick areas that are a little harder to walk into.

      I'd love to do this. I've never hunted them as we didn't have any where I'm from. Do you know if this opportunity is for a wild pheasant or a pen raised bird?
