Re: Amperage draw before and after DC to AC inverter

Wire: copper is not a superconductor. More like a heater. Previous post: yes, the limits of wire is not Watts, but Amps. Reasonable (not heating much, 2% voltage drop) current is limited by the circular area of copper, and voltage drop is a combination of area and length. A 100' 12 ga cord will drop...

Re: Soldering Guru's!

Crimp a terminal to clean scraped wire.

Aluminum caused a lotta house fires in the 1970's. High TempCo of Al wire causes pulling away of connector until it's bouncing around sparking in a wall, after a couple of years, well after warrantee period. Al wire essentially banned for domestic service.

Re: Charging deep cycle batteries from multiple sources

Assumptions I think you are making: 12v system voltage. No indication of 12v batteries in series making 24/48v. Right? I don't see a chart of projected loads and times. Paralleling a bunch of 12v batteries to build available Amp-Hours. These batteries are unlikely to charge well, in a balanced way. ...
