Sorry mate but I don't understand what WiFi and distance has to do with how much power your fridge uses,

Bridge not fridge

The microwaves levitate the bridge so you can slide it into the fridge.

Or

12 hours @ 280 Watts = 3360 Wh

12 hours @ 140 Watts = 1680 Wh

= 5040 Wh total

5040 / 12.5 V = 403 AH battery consumption

If using Lithium batteries which provide 80 % DOD then i assume i need 503 AH of batteries.
However AGM taken down to 30 % DOD would require 1300 AH ?

500 watt solar panel on overcast winters day > 6 hrs x 500 x 0.3 = 900 watts
500 Watt panel in winter > 6 hrs per day x 500 = 3000 Watts
500 Watt panel in summer > 9 hrs per day x 500 = 4500 watts

2 x 500 watt solar panel on overcast winters day > 6 hrs x 500 x 0.3 = 1800 watts
2 x 500 Watt panel in winter > 6 hrs per day x 500 = 6000 Watts
2 x 500 Watt panel in summer > 9 hrs per day x 500 = 9000 watts

Goes to prove the old saying, if you want the right answer, you first need to ask the right question smile (With all of the detail, lol)

Mind Reading 101, was not my best subject at school playful

Mate how has this gone from Battery Capacities, To Levitating Microwaves,

You asked about CCTV cameras and a 500w panel and now you are talking about Microwaves levitating at 5kms, what does any of this have to do with your question about CCTV cameras,

Are you just winding people up or do you have a serious question ? Because each of your posts has no connection to your Prior posts with nothing linking either one of them,

Thanks but not sure where you got powering a fridge from when the post mentioned powering CCTV ?

Cheers smile

Quite simple, I misread the word Bridge, and mixed up my reply to 2 of your posts.

So what is it you actually want to achieve and what is it that you are wanting to power ?

interesting article (for those with an interest in material sciences) on rechargeable batteries using 'Aqueous Zinc-Ion Batteries'
https://advances.sciencemag.org/content/5/10/eaax4279
gives an outline of advantages over LiPo

DD, That looks like the way forward, I wouldn't mind a few of those to make up a bank,

Those 2 Dometic 40's are working fine but the cost is not as Wallet friendly as these CSIRO batteries, thumbsup

for anyone who may be looking for a big DC-DC charger with solar input, the Projecta IDC45 which sells from around $450-550, East Coast Batteries currently have them on their website for $379

I am using a NOCO Genius G15000 UltraSafe Battery Charger. Even it has a high price but I still satisfied with it because it provides protection against overcharging and overheating, spark-proof and easy to use. I think everyone can try it.

The G15000 is my everyday smart charger, I also have the G26000 and the G3500, I like the idea that you can leave them hooked up and forget them and when the batteries voltage drops a little they power them selves back up and maintain the battery and they work with any battery type, I have a couple of their Booster Packs,

Just bought these two 90 Ah deep cycle batteries , $180 each ..
1594959164_0666cf58-2f2e-4626-96c6-49ca69a5959b.jpg
I have a new Projecta 25amp 3 stage DC/solar battery Charger.1594959378_376cf6e6-fee3-429e-b905-d22aa04d4ce5.jpg

I want a dual battery set up in the Prado, as well as placing an extra battery along alongside the current deep cycle battery i already have in the camper trailer.
1594959719_b1f1caca-b02f-461d-af80-2cbec73d943e.jpg
This is the 100Ah deep cycle battery in the camper ..bought May 2017.
1594960438_ed5b7a45-557d-4c7c-9451-80a73b8a87f8.jpg

I am wondering if its better to put the 100Ah camper trailer battery in the Prado as the secondary duel battery , and put the two new 90 Ah batteries in the camper trailer or can I use one new battery in the Prado dual battery set up and put the other on in the camper trailer to give me a total of 190Ah in camper ?
What the best choice ?

If your going to wire the camper batteries in parallel it's best to have 2 the same.
Put the 100amp as the duel. thumbsup


No pain No gain..

At the moment I have my 3x 110Ah deep cycle batteries on test running my ARB 47L set to 1*c, So far it's been over 48 hours and the DMM is still reading 12.817v, I am going to run them for 7 days without any form of charging IE Solar or DC to DC etc and then I am going to hook up my big 35A charger and see how long it takes to charge them back up,

At the moment the ARB is chewing about 0.61Ah, Spoke to the company who sold the batteries to me and they said I can run them down to 70% leaving 30% in the batteries without doing any damage, But doing this test over 7 days I will be flat out using 30% of the power,

The power draw is pretty low considering it's going to be around 30*c here to day,

Not bad for a set of batteries that are over 3 years old, Ay, thumbsup perfect
