Quote:I am planning a one week trip to a remote area, where my only source of power will be the battery of my rental car.1. What do I need to prevent that I deplete the battery to a level where it cannot start the engine? Where do I get such a gadget?2. Suppose that I buy a second battery. What do I need to recharge it in my car? And also to prevent that the charging of the second battery depletes the car battery. Where can I buy such a device?Thank you,--Dom
Quote:Yep..if you have a Harbour Freight near the airport..they have these on continual sale.....cheap enough to simply give away when time to fly home....you can charge them off the car battery as well...http://www.harborfreight.com/12-volt-jump-start-and-power-supply-38391.html?c...Wally World has similarhttp://www.walmart.com/ip/Schumacher-XP400-Jump-Starter/15140202After you pay for that plane ticket or rental car..this is chump change...
