|It is true a lap top would be eficient. But we are working with what we got. Most of our equipment is either donated or savaged. I have a 800 watt inverter with a peak of 1600( Donated) I planned on running 4 reg car batteries . (You are right not series, but in paralel) instaled in a long plastic tool box. with the inverter mounted on the top of the chest. Right know it is all I have to work with. I figured I could buy a battery charger and charge the batteries indivisually. We need enough power to run a VCR , DVR ,with 4 Infrared night cameras that require a 24 volt power pack per camera, thats 4 of them. a pc tower and a monitor flat screen 22 inch. We record out in the wilderness/desert for about 6 hours constant. So i am trying to figure out how to produce efectively and economically power to these items for about 6 to eigth hours. We normally back the truck up and set the equipment up in the trunk. we set up a chair and let the cameras record nature. This takes place at night. I want to prevent myself from hooking up the chasis battery. I dont want to get stuck out there no help and was wondering what you guys thought of this set up. If you guys could helpme think of a cheaper way . We would be delighted and exited . |
We dont have much funding would love to take our new donated equipment and figure out how to use it in the wild.
