Question deep cycle battery or generator?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I plan on charging ten 2200MAH lipos during my flying session. Is there a good sealed battery that can be stored inside a trailer that will do this job? How much capacity should it have? or should I just buy a generator?

Thanks again

Re: deep cycle battery or generator?

3Cell 2200's i assume?

you will get more bang for the bug with a battery. One "optima" or similar type 12 volt "six pack" deep cycle automotive battery should do the trick.

This will give you all the wattage you will need and I believe these are rated for about 150 amp hours, or about 50 charges of a 3 cell 2200.
