Power packs

Post by mike on Wed 20 Jul 2011, 10:30 am

Started this thread in the hope someone with more knowledge of them will add to it.if for some reason you cant or dont want to have a battery on your dandy these are handy for running odd items like your water pump,in general they are not as powerful as a leisure battery but are clean and convenient,some come with an inverter built in which of course should be used sparingly as it could drain the unit.

I would say you get what you pay for with these, we had a cheaper one and it really wasn't that good and yet a friend of mine has a more expensive one than ours and uses an inverter and it doe's the job, she used it to watch tv for an hour a day as well as other things. Very Happy

We've got one of these from Machine Mart

We bought it for use in the trailer tent, the light makes a good bedside light, the 12v and USB sockets are very handy for charging your phone and things. It is nice and low so is easy to store, it has a 'durable rubber housing' so it's very robust. It also has a tyre inflater with gauge. It can last us for a weekend on one charge.

As we are quite often in the middle of know where with the camper, it made sence to have one, I'm sure it will be needed to start our engine one day, we chose one that would cope with a 1.6TD engine.

Some very cheap ones are shockingly bad, our friend had one, it never started an engine in it's life, in fact his went flat really quickly.

We got a cheap one Cazz and I forgot to unplug the coolbox that we had in the car boot of our 1.6 Peugeot SW and it was on overnight and totally flattened the battery, I got out the power pack that was fully charged and it didn't even touch it. I would invest in another but this time would spend more on one to make it worth while, while ours cost just short of £20 my friend paid almost £50 but our £20 was wasted as even when using just the light on the side of it and charging the phone the power didn't last very long at all making it a total waste of money. We are now with the RAC so that helps lol!

The one you have looks the business
