Ok this might not make any sense but I have been looking at buying a solar panel to charge my batteries while camping and I just had a thought.......

If I buy a 500w DC to AC inverter and plug in a battery charger would this work to charge the battery. My guess is as long as the draw is less then the charge it should. Maybe this could be a new invention! A built in battery charger that does not need to be plugged in.

you can not create energy, there is no such thing as a perpetual motion machine. this would just drain your battery down.

Your voltage Draw would likley be greater than your charge u be putting back in.....

average charger 2-6amps on a trickle charge.
Inverter consumption would exceed this by far....
End result u have to run your engine to keep up with the inverter draw or your battery will always have a constant drain.. as long as your inverter is being used...


I could be wrong ...
but I do not think so...

Hey Kevin,

Why don't you buy an old bicycle that has one of those power generators that rides on the side of the rim. Hook it up to the back wheel of the bike and wire it to your battery, get the bike wheel off the ground, drink a case of beer, and peddle your ass off!
