- Boat batteries
- Two way radios
I have been thinking of getting a new telly for the boat but the ability to use my 17" laptop on batteries for TV and DVD's stopped the purchase - just another use of the free power whilst cruising......
One thing though I never have understood how extra load on the alternator increases the fuel consumption - is that a fact on a boat as well? The benefit must outweigh the small cost, but I'd still like to understand the impact.
So recharge, recharge I say and buy a Smartgauge so you know what the heck is happening with your batteries without the need for scrabbling under the deck boards with a multimeter.
