1000 W "Quiet" Gas Generator for 3 Bank battery charger

Question

74mph

I am looking into buying a generator for the soul purpose of charging up the batteries in my Bassboat when camping in remote locations. My bassboat currently has a standard 3 bank charger that I typical plug in overnight and get a full charge. There are many different generators out there but the 1000 watt "quiet genterators" seem like they would work well as far as size, noise, and gas consumption. The question is will it be enough power to run the battery charger? Would I be able to run the batery charger and potentially some lights? What do you think, I am lost when it comes to electronics.

You get 1000 watts Peak. I think your charger will work great.

For extra stuff you will probably be just fine. For camping light you can't beat a coleman lantern.... it just wouldn't be camping........... without a coleman lantern...

CHECK YOUR CHARGER FOR HOW MANY WATTS IT USES THEN YOU WILL KNOW WHAT YOU NEED. I THINK A 1000 WOULD BE FINE. WE HAVE A CABIN WITH NO ELECTRIC AND WE USE A GEN. I PLUG THE BOAT IN AND IN THE TIME WE HAVE DINNER AND TURN OFF THE GEN FIVE TO SIX HOURS. THE CHARGER SHOWS A FULL CHARGE. I RUN A 24 VOLT.

Heres some simple math to determine amps,watts

Watts,divided by Voltage= Amps

Amps,x Voltage=Watts

So a 1000 Watt generator divided by the plugin of 120 voltage=8.33 Amps.So its a bit more than 1/2 of your standard house breaker on a single line.

      Nice Job Jeff. Love the secret potion you know how scent can play a key role in the bite.    Wow some good prizes for this years event. People come on out and join the fun. We all will do are best to help you ice a few cats, maybe even your first.

      Those are some dandies . The eye bite has been a little rough lately.  What worked to put those two nice ones topside?

      First off welcome to the site and thanks for posting. Not sure about a road plowed on Woman but broad water and lantern bay are good  places to find panfish on that lake. More than likely there will be a truck trail to both as they are pretty popular spots. Good luck

      Was on Green by Chisago with my daughter who is 6. Like others, we marked a lot of fish but getting them to bite wasn’t easy. Did catch a fair number of bluegills and crappies but really had to coax them into biting. The bite did pick up a little as it got closer to dark though. We stayed out until about 6:30pm. My daughter didn’t want to leave but I was out of propane for my heater so it was getting a little cold so we left. Everything was mostly small but did catch a couple of decent sized crappies. Ice is thick and you could pretty much drive anywhere with 4WD. Fun time with the kid and she’s hooked on it. Already asking to go again.

      First timer checking in. My folks bought a place on Child/Boy River. Looking forward to spending more time in the area. Wondering if anyone knows if there are roads plowed on Woman Lake? Was hoping to try and catch an evening/morning bite this week. Thanks

      Looking forward to it.  Here are some more prizes.
