What are the chances you can add a cold plate freezer to the truck Fridge to reduce battery demand ?
Lead batteries are the environmental success story of our time. More
than 99% of all battery lead is recycled. Compared to 55% of aluminum
soft drink and beer cans, 45% of newspapers, 26% of glass bottles and
26% of tires, lead-acid batteries top the list of the most highly
recycled consumer product.
The lead battery gains its environmental edge from its closed-loop
life cycle. The typical new lead battery contains 60 to 80 percent
recycled lead and plastic. When a spent battery is collected, it is sent
to a permitted recycler where, under strict environmental regulations,
the lead and plastic are reclaimed and sent to a new battery
manufacturer. The recycling cycle goes on indefinitely. That means the
lead and plastic in the lead-acid battery in your car, truck, boat or
motorcycle have been - and will continue to be -- recycled many, many
times. This makes lead battery disposal extremely successful from both
environmental and cost perspectives.
And while I link to product (frequently for the high end with all of the bells and whistles--So you can see what is "possible"), I usually avoid giving recommendations--I am not in the business and do not have an off grid system--Plus, I can buy a new Lexus and it would break down driving out of the dealership. -Bill
Hey Guys-I have been studying up on inverters and I am struggling a bit understanding the reasons behind the swing in price. I completely understand the difference between Pure/True sine and Modified Sine but beyond that I am struggling.I have found 2000 watt pure sine wave inverters for as low as $350.00 with pretty solid reviews..http://www.donrowe.com/Xantrex-806-1220-PROwatt-SW-2000-p/806-1220.htmHowever the inverters BB linked to were close to $1600. Now I noticed that his were inverter chargers but you could always buy chargers and monitoring systems separately.I would love to have someone help me understand what I am really getting for the price if I went with a $1600 unit vs say the one I posted above. Thank you guys again for the help.ThanksJay
