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!!

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
