Charging batteries

Post by BAY BEAGLE »

Little late for this thread ..... but on my farm, and my Bay Boat - I have switched to solar, to charge my batteries.
On each battery, I have installed the female cigarette lighter plug. On my solar panel, my lead is 12 ft long with the male end. So my boat(s), generators, fuel tank, mowers, etc - all have female plugs attached to them. I rotate them as needed. The solar comes with a overload protector. I have the same set up on my boat lift for my big boat.

I clipped the ends on the factory connectors, and add these soilder ring connectors. I use these on 100% of my 12 v. connections.

I wish there were a PV flooring tile you could cover the boat deck with and put all that sun you soak up on the water to good use. If anyone is aware of one I'd be curious to check it out.
I have a marriage license and a fishing license, but I only carry one in my wallet.
