The Honda’s new 12v cable…

Finally got a seriously overcast day: By 10am the battery voltage was lower than it was at 5am. Supposed to rain and snow most of the day so the photonic situation won’t be improving.


Perfect day to see what the generator’s 12v outlet can do for my battery bank. I’m not really expecting much better performance than my Battery Minder gave me – but assuming something won’t work is often worse in the long run than assuming it will. And in any case I ought to have had one of these cables for the Jeep long since.


Simple enough…


And in truth, I’m getting quicker results than I expected. Except this time the batteries haven’t been abused by multiple overcast days, so I guess it would show better results right at first. We’ll see how it goes.

    1) Do you have a way to measure charge current?

    2) Your Honda is running and making 120 Vac, so there is nothing stopping you from also hooking up the Battery Minder.

    3) using the Honda in place of your inverter, this also would be a good time to bake bread.

    I genuinely wish I’d thought of that.

To the stake with the heretic!
