Open Question

Im tring to buy a battery bank

I currently have

20 Duralast 31-950
950 Cold Crankin Amps
195 Reserve Capacity

Schumacher se-3000 Charger

Do i need to change or add anything to get the bank to work?
Right now it doesnt last 12 hours a day. I need it to run cosistantly. I was think i may need another type of charger. What do you think the problem could be?

SOURCE: I have to power 1800

I think the problem might be your battery setup.
First of all, these batteries are not deep-cycle batteries they may not tolerate this kind of usage. Secondly, if you have 20 batteries connected in parallel they could end up working  against each other (draining each other) all the time.
You might do better with 2 very large 6 volt deep-cycle golf cart or fork lift batteries.

Do I need to put a inline fuse or does the vector sst 1200 have a fuse or breaker in it


It probably does, but an in-line fuse is still the safest way to go, connected as close as possible to the voltage source as possible. The internal overcurrent protection device (aka, fuse or breaker) in the inverter will prevent the DEVICE from melting if it malfunctions. An in-line fuse will protect EVERYTHING if the WIRING malfunctions.

With the vector 2000 watt converter do you need to run 2 batterys.


well unless you bought the 24 volt unit no one battery will run the unit, according to black and decker this unit is not being made, did you buy it new or at a yard sale?
one way to tell is look on bottom of unit, it will tell you if it is 24 or 12 volt model.

(Vector 400 Watt sst Power inverter) When I plug the Inverter into the Cigarette lighter of my RV, and the TV 26" into the inverter It won't work.


I am assuming that the inverter works with other devices. This being the case, i am thinking that the television start up current is drawing too much power too quick for the inverter to handle and this is what is shutting down the inverter.

I have a Veco24B 400 Watt DC to AC inverter and the fuse that is suppose to be located in the cigarette lighter adapter is missing and I would like to know the size of fuse that is required.


I would put a 20 amp fuse in. The wiring for the cigarette lighter is usually around 15 - 20 Amps. The wiring also is not rated for more than 20A. I hope this helps. JOe

My name is Gena. The VEC024B that is being used by our field technicians are having problems with the fuse blowing in their work vans. Their vans are equipped with laptops.


Hi Gena, the inverter is a 400 watt unit. This is not a rating for a continuous load. You do not mention which fuse is blowing. This could be the fuse in the inverter or the cigarette lighter (power source) fuse. In either case, a fuse blowing could be a short circuit, something in the inverter shorted, or too much load. I am going to look at the too much load side of things. Not knowing how many laptops are being used, with the inverter if you have a 20 amp fuse in the cig lighter, this will allow you 20 amps X 12 volts = 240 watts. I would not run the inverter over 240 watts because of overheating issues. So, 240 watts will run 3 laptops. Just the laptops. Most laptops draw around 70 watts. check your power supplies on them to find their rating. If you exceed the 240 watts by combining the ratings, then you can expect trouble with your inverter. It will give 400 watts, but this is a temporary condition only. Another inverter will be needed or a larger one installed and it being connected directly to the battery (with a fuse of sufficient size installed). You could also (let us say there are 6 computers) charge and run 3, and the other 3 are running on their batteries. After an hour, switch so that the 3 running on batteries now are charging as well as running. The other 3 are now charging.
I hope this helps. If you have any other questions please provide additional information. Such as the size and location of the fuse blowing. The laptop power supply ratings.
thank you

I need help hooking my vector maxx sst 1000 w power inverter to my car


A 1000 watt power inverter hooks to the battery terminals directly, not through the cigarette lighter.

Bought a new vector maxxsst 1200 watt inverter


Inverter run on batteries sir, and if these batteries are not charged, the run time {the number of hours it will work} reduces.
S0, you will need to connect the inverter to a power source.Theses will allow your batteries to be charged and enable it to run for a long period of time.
Make sure your batteries are still OK.i.e working properly
