Default Re: 12V converter versus extra 12v battery

This looks like a nice clean setup, for info though you could use a buse strip for in a cuircut breaker boc mounted to lexan then to the frame, or buy a ground strip for a boat. First option works well for under $5.00.

We do the same at Ft. Wilderness, (saw Mickey on the side of your cart,) but we only run a 100 light string of LED christmas lights since it takes about 4 watts, the same as 1 night light bulb.

I was debating the same thing. But was wondering if you hooked a converter from the main batteries to the 12v batt could you use that to charge it when the others were being charged. So you wouldnt have to use two chargers?

Here is a pic. I just charge it with a 2nd 12 volt charger.

I had one in the same location, it worked very well for just the basic headlights. But it would not handle all of the lights at Christmas time at the Fort. I ended up putting a group 27 deep cycle interstate in the bagwell under the rear seat. Worked well last Christmas I was able to run for about 2 nights between charges.
