Test post……When I first started researching the types of batteries for a campervan conversion, it was a little confusing. There seemed to be so many overlapping categories — and tons of abbreviations! So I thought I’d put together this campervan battery comparison guide to keep things straight in my head and to help out other people as well. This is not only for camper van owners, but also for RV owners and anyone else wondering which batteries to use for solar power. Here’s what’s discussed below: What battery do I need for my camper van? Marine battery and deep cycle battery Lead acid batteries pros and cons AGM vs. Lithium ion battery The inside of a car battery is made up of positive and negative metal
Test post……..You can find free camping while you’re on the road in a campervan or RV by using various apps. There’s quite a few of them out there, but here we’re going to focus on the 10 best free camping and parking apps that can help you find camping and parking sites in USA, Canada and Mexico and that are available on all devices. The main things I want to know are: Where can you park overnight for free? How do you get free camping? What’s the best camping app with most coverage? On a recent trip through eastern Canada we stayed at several campsites to save money. The rates were relatively cheap from $18 to $35 per night. But over two weeks that still added
Test post…… When you’re calculating power needs for your electronic devices, you not only have look at how much power you need from your battery but also how much power you’re going to have to generate to recharge the battery. I’ll go over those numbers and also how to calculate solar power output if you’re using solar panels to recharge the battery. The battery’s capacity is measured in amp hours, abbreviated Ah. (For the smaller portable lithium-ion battery chargers the power capacity is expressed in milliamps or 1/1000th of an amp, abbreviated mAh.) This measure tells you how many amps or electrical current the battery can deliver in one hour. The greater the amp hours the longer you’ll be able to run your electronic devices.
