There are several different ways to generate and store electric power. The right one for you will depend on environmental factors for your specific situation.

 

– rv

– boat

– off grid house

– off grid shed

– backup power

 

Batteries

 

  • Most rated for 20 hours for a complete discharge
  • Higher discharge will reduce capacity and produce heat
  • The usual safety limits for a complete discharge are a minimum of 8 hours¬† for continuous use, 2 hours for short bursts of a few minutes max, with enough time for the battery to cool down between them
  • Some sources claim higher discharge rates, possible damage to the battery might result from overheating
  • Completely discharging batteries will reduce number of life cycles and can lead to damage. It is advisable not to discharge to less than 50% capacity
