Emergency Preparedness DC Power Pack
Some of the capabilities of my powerpack are….
Power outlet receptacle
Binding post power outlet
Various amp powerpole outlets
12 Volt DC to 110V AC Power Inverter
Powerpole quick-disconnect for jump-start cables,
LED Power meter with charging jack for Genius smart charger
Master shut-off switch to power down the powerpack
For some time I had this battery box with a fully sealed, multi-cell, rechargeable 80 amp-hr AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) battery sitting around in my shack.
At one time or another, I have designed and built variations of something similar, and I have seen portable 12 volt powerpacks put together by other hams..
Having said that, I always felt that the various powerpacks that I have put together, were lacking something,
For one thing, the last 12 volt powerpack that I built, was lacking in reserve power, as the battery that I had used, limiting the amount of time it could be used before the battery needed recharging, and I also realized that all of the previous portable powerpacks of this sort that I have seen in the past, were lacking another feature that I wanted to include in my next portable powerpack, that being the capability to be able to use the powerpack for jump starting a vehicle, or temporarily used as added capacity to my primary battery in my mobile.
