Bonus! - Flexibility of a Harris Home & Mobile Battery Bank 20 min
With Just a Standard Car Battery, You'll Be Able to:
Remember, it's just your car at idle, on or off, with your car battery, it's not a nuclear power station.
But at least your Cell Phones, Tablets, TV, Radios, Refrigerator, and Freezer all work... plus more stuff.
Recharge all your Smart Phones and Tablets and Hotspot.
Your Refrigerator (one at a time) (only 1 hour 3x a day is needed)
Your Freezer (one at a time) (only 1 hour 3x a day is needed)
Your TV (smaller the better, but...even the 75" one)
Your Sump Pump (it usually only runs for 30 seconds)
Your Coffee Maker if you must have coffee, but see the video on how to hook it up good enough and you can't run anything else at the same time. Coffee maker takes a LOT of power (for a small amount of time)
Recharge all of the AA and AAA and D Cell batteries you desire for your headlamps, radios, flashlights
Run your laptop computer about as much as you desire.
Run your Internet Modem and Router for WIFI if your provider is still providing internet
Run all the fans you desire
