    Battery Maintenance - Is this something you do?

    Lately, due to our current situation, I have been driving less. The Jeep comes out about every two weeks or so. In order to keep the battery conditioned, I installed a modular solar system.

    Balanced battery charging

    Charging batteries connected in parallel. Ever wondered why a bank of batteries connected in parallel seem to fail sooner than expected? Most of us connect a bank of batteries together in parallel, which is, electrically, the correct way to increase capacity at a given voltage (in most of our...

    Fridge/freezer power questions

    Last night I finally bit the bullet and bought a Whynter 62qt dual zone. It was the right price and size for me as my first fridge. I'm currently driving a car with a single starter battery.
