Wilderness Camping Experience

Never thought of the boat charger use. My boat is at the bottom of a steep hill and it gets tiresome lugging the battery up and down. Thanks for the tip. Take care.

BTW your quote sounds like one we used to use on portages.

Interesting report and thanks for the info. I too am a long distance wilderness canoeist, but most of my trips are in the Canadian bush and last 10 days or longer. Carrying enough batteries for my CPAP just isn't in the cards. I plan on going without.

OldGuide, have you looked into Lithium or LiPo batteries? I fly radio control airplanes and these batteries are much lighter, more powerful, and hold their charge much longer than conventional batteries. I think you will also find them to be very reasonably priced, especially some of the Chinese vendors. They also use some very sophisticated chargers that will fast charge/slow charge, and cycle the batteries. Many of the RC batteries cost in the $10-20 range.
