How Do You Hook Up A DC Battery To Lights?
To hook a battery to lights, you will need an inverter, as well as a good battery charger. Batteries provide a direct current (DC). This electric current flows in one direction steadily. The lead-acid batteries, such as those found in automobiles, are the oldest type of rechargeable battery (DC). The deep cycle athe marine/motorhome battery are the best choices. Inverters are electrical devices that convert direct current electricity (DC) stored in a battery to an alternating current (AC) used by lights. The size of an inverter is measured by its maximum continuous output in watts, which measure power, not energy. Almost every AC-powered device has an electrical requirements tag on its cord or surface that will show wattage. Decide how often you will use the lights that will be run off of the battery to determine which battery to use. If infrequently, a marine/motorhome battery will be a good choice. If regularly, a true deep cycle may be the best option. Determine which lights will be
