How to Charge My Tools Overnight in my Enclosed Trailer


What would you recommend so I can have my battery chargers overnight? I am a carpenter so I was hoping to have a panel that can supply the chargers overnight so my drills etc arent dead in the morning.Would most likely be a 4 slot powerbar. When I am on site with power the trailer would be plugged in directly And also to supply for a couple lights when required. Would only be turned on in the early morning, night time and for a short time Please Advise when you have a minute.

Your best bet here is going to be an on board battery the you hook an inverter up to. You can use the Power Inverter 1000 Watts with Three AC Receptacles part # WC3720 . This offers three AC receptacles that would allow you to plug your strip into. It will connect directly to your battery so you would not have to worry about hooking it up each day.

Since you will have the trailer plugged in during the day use the CTEK MULTI US 7002 12-Volt Universal Battery Charger part # CTEK56353 and it will charge your battery up during the day to give you the power you need to charge the tool batteries over night.

This is going to be a much more straight forward and reliable way to charge your tool batteries back up with out having to rely on solar energy. The size of the solar system to effectively do this would be considerable. Like the Go Power Solar Flex Charging System with Digital Solar Controller - 200 Watt Solar Panels part # 34272628
