30 Caliber Power Can - Under The Hood
So here is what is going on in the battery compartment of my 30 Caliber Power Can.
I could of went with one single battery, but selected these dual 6AH 12 volt gel battery's hooked in parallel for a total of 12AH, that fit the battery compartment so well.
The dedicated 500mA battery charger goes along with the power can wherever it goes, and that way its simple to top up the batteries if required.
Mind you, there are different ways available of charging the batteries, including using solar, my mobile, or my larger 75AH power pack.
