You could also google it. Or Youtube it. Not-so-radical self-reliance and all that.
Did this person ask you to fucking charge the battery for them? Jesus Christ. They're asking for help with something they've never done before in a forum called "Batteries and Power." Next time you have an obnoxious house guest that you want to leave I hope they handcuff themselves to your bed and scream "Radical Inclusion" at you until you go insane from sleep deprivation.
Oh man, you're quite the wordsmith.
Let's recap. The OP asked:
"How does one charge 2 deep cycle 12v batteries?"
To which the answer was a perfectly formed:
"Buy a battery charger, read the manual, and recharge your batteries."
Because what else is there really to it? We don't know what charger the person will buy; different brands have different modes of operation.
After replying with all the information that was needed, I followed up with: "You could also google it. Or Youtube it. Not-so-radical self-reliance and all that." I listed means by which the person can find supplemental information, such as reviews for what are good battery chargers, on Google or Youtube.
It's not such radical self-reliance. It should be standard practice for everything.
For example, I wanted a vacuum sealer for packing my food this year. The thing is, I've never vacuum sealed anything before with one of these devices.
So I went on Amazon and looked for a well-rated vacuum sealer that wasn't too expensive for what I needed. Then I:
- Bought the vacuum sealer
- Read the manual
- Vacuum sealed some food
I did not go on ePlaya and ask: "oh hey, I've never vacuum sealed food before. I do I do that?" because the answer would be pretty much the procedure I followed above. Had I received specific instructions, it may not have been helpful either, since I got a different brand sealer than whatever might be the most popular version around. The buttons and operation would have been different and the specific instructions would have wasted everyone's time.
