HI all I just want to shed some light and experience with battery
outdoor lighting. Last year was my first in to show circuit and I
I used the Eclectic Lighting system -12v track lighting system that
can be used with a deep cycle marine battery. (s) Yes to have the
lights for a 2 day show, 7 hours each day I needed 4 batteries. Or
carry 2 back and recharge overnight. The reason is if you draw the
battery to zero you can not recharge it. They don’t tell you that.
My husband did the “home work” and spoke to the battery manufacture
rep. He told us you can only draw the battery down to about 25% then
it takes about 12 hours to fully recharge. When you calculate the
watts and the volt thing (I don’t understand this stuff!) you find
out 1 battery probably will not be enough. Here’s the down side
each battery weights 75 pounds, that’s 300 pounds of battery to
They worked great but I am not up to carrying that kind of weight.
So, if any one is interested I will be selling very soon. I want to
be able to share the max watts one can expect. I have both the
batteries and the track lighting system and a dc converter. If any
one is interested email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll
get the specifics for you.
