There's a simple formula that can help you calculate electricity requirements: just multiply the number of amps by the number of volts... the resulting number equals that appliance's wattage.

HOW TO HOOK UP A CTEK BATTERY CHARGER TO A 2007 MASERATI QUATTROPORTE SPORT GT


Wise decision my friend. Because with all the electronic stuff that's still running without the switch on, it can destroy a good battery after a while of non-use. A very, very slow drain. Just connect the hot wire directly to a lead directly to the battery and the ground to a bolt on the frame. Place the male end of the 110 cord where you can easily access it to plug it into the extension cord and wire tie it there. Mount the charger in an area where it can get air, under the hood on a fender well but out of the way. Because these new style chargers are "floating" chargers, it will shut down when battery is fully charged and restart with a 1% drop. Always remember to disconnect the extension cord from charger before starting the car. Otherwise you'll be replacing the charger. It's safe to hard wire the unit like this, no power goes back to the charger with the one way diode that's incorporated in the unit. Have fun with your toy.

Charger tips to small for dell laptop


A Dell Mini net book is a small and very portable laptop. The compact size makes it a good candidate for travel or just simply using around the house. Outdoor aficionados can get the most computing life out of a Dell Mini by finding a way to charge the battery outside. One method works when you are near a building while the other can be used for more remote outdoor locales

Things You'll Need
  • Extension cord
  • Solar laptop charger
  • Dell Mini power adapter

    • 1 Plug an extension cord into an available power outlet. Run the extension cord to where you are outside. Many homes also have exterior outlets. Use an extension cord that is designed for outside use. Plug the Dell Mini power adapter into the extension cord to charge the battery.
    • 2 Purchase a laptop solar charger. Solar chargers are available from several different manufacturers and may come in the form of a roll or be built into a case that closes up for travel. Depending on the charger, you may also need to purchase a Dell Mini power adapter. Some chargers work with a Dell Mini cigarette lighter adapter that is designed to plug into a vehicle's power port.
    • 3 Place the solar laptop charger in a sunny location. Open up the case if the charger is in one and roll it out flat or unfold it to expose all of the solar cells.
    • 4 Connect the Dell Mini power adapter to the power port on the solar charger. Connect the other end to the netbook. The adapter will regulate the charge coming from the solar panel and recharge the battery in the Dell Mini.
  1. Tips & Warnings
  2. Solar chargers offer less power than a wall outlet. They can be used to extend the battery life of a Dell Mini or to recharge the battery when the netbook is off.
  3. Some solar laptop chargers are relatively heavy. Take the weight into consideration if you are going to be backpacking or otherwise carrying it on your person.

I have a very deep yard. Approx. 150 feet from my nearest power outlet. Can I use your weed trimmer products? What is the recommended wire gage of the power cord I should use.


A 16 Ga extension cord will run 10 amps up to oo feet. Electric weed wackers run between 2 and 4 amps, so you should be fine with a 16 Ga cord.

My compressor quit working when i flip the on switch it does nothing any ideas what is wrong???


If the tank is full (pressurized): Nothing will happen when the switch is turned on. Bleed some air from the tank to see if the motor turns on when the pressure drops.

If the tank is empty or low on pressure: First check the circuit breaker to the outlet the compressor is plugged into. Next, somewhere on the compressor, usually on the motor, there is a circuit breaker. They are usually a small round white or black button that if tripped will stick out about 1/4 inch or more. Push that back in and check to see if your motor runs. The usual reason for these circuit breakers to pop is because the compressor is being run on an extension cord. Rule of thumb for compressors: run longer air lines, NEVER use extension cords. If it is absolutely necessary to run an extension cord it should be 10-guage and no longer than 25 feet.

My scooter battery won't charge. Felt mild shock or short when attempted to insert connector. That seemed to disable the charger because the charger powers on, but will not run the charge to the...


Make sure that the charger is fully connected to the scooter; ususally the controller lights will go slowly left to right to indicate it is charging. Make sure the charger is plugged directly into the grounded wall outlet, not into an extension cord or power bar. If the charger is not being recognized by the scooter, you may need to replace the charger, or at least the power cord to the charger.
If your scooter has been sitting unused for a while? If so, the batteries might not charge anymore and will need to be replaced. Contact the manufacturer for a service call or troubleshooting over the phone.
Good luck!

Sterling sapphire 2 4wheel scooter


Larry,

Many scooters use a special charger that will not overcharge the batteries. Your best bet is to run a long extension cord to wherever you are safely storing you scooter and use the on-board charger. Be sure to charge your batteries often, since they last a lot longer if you do not run them down too far.

Thanks again...


Sometimes, the battery alarm is set to high or off and it will automatically warn you when the battery is at a certain percentage. Most newer laptops will even warn you when the battery is going bad.

The AC cord is both the power cord and it will also charge the battery when plugged in as well.

So, it's safe to run on just battery as it may just be telling you that it doesn't have AC power and that you're running only on the battery. My Satellite laptop is setup to warn you when it's only on battery power as well.

Washer won't turn on


try running an extension cord to another outlet (another circuit breaker). ensure the cord is not too long (25 feet ok) and able to carry 15 to 20 amps (use 12 AWG cord).
