Best price on New 12v SLA & charger? & a few questions.
« on: November 23, 2003, 10:16:47 PM »
I'm looking for a 12v to run a power inverter.

The power inverter runs off a cig lighter adapter. Or 2 small clips like jumper cables. I have no experience with SLA's. Could I just run the clips on the battery without making any mods to it?

Thanks many t+'s for the help.

Jeff~

i recommend a PowerSonic PS-12XX.  you can get them in variety of AmpHour ratings.

many have "Faston" quick disconnect tabs. i would replace your aligator clips with female Faston tabs (go to RadioShaq).

http://www.mouser.com has a good supply of them in stock.

good luck,

You can buy SLAs locally and save on the shipping.  Check a non-RS electronics store, they should have 'em.

i think my 12v sla was bout $40, and charger maybe 20, i run my deck off a cig lighter from a car on the sla, i just went to the local O'Reily's auto store, and bought a new one for replacement, soldered my contacts on, and plugged it in and works like a charm.  if you need help with it, pm me, i'll send you some pics, or make it for ya if you want.  let me know.

I originally got 2 from batteries plus, but you can get them real cheap from batterymart.com

Then I got one of the radioshack cigarette lighter jacks w/ the huge alligator clips on both ends, cut those off and crimped on those female quick disconnect tabs that someone was talking about.  I just put a piece of duck tape over the whole thing to keep it secure (and protect the terminals) when I'm taping, then I take off the car end and just have the battery w/ the duck tape over the terminals, and stick them in my bag.  If you want to soldier it on, great, but then you'll have to make a cigarette lighter connector for your charger.  I usually charge mine w/ the alligator clips that came w/ my carger, but I made a cigarette lighter plug adapter for it.  I don't have a working digital camera or I'd take a picture of what I made, and my printer/scanner is broken right now or I'd try to scan in the cables, lol.
