    charging bike while camping

    I do a fair bit of dry camping where I have no power. Of course this is a detriment with an bike. Has anyone used of of those car/booster/packs to charge their bike batter..See many of them are a 1000 amps or more

    why not carry a second or third battery instead? I suppose the price is def a big factor, but that thing is 40lbs. Considering second battery to lug might be better since weight is going to also affect the range of your e bike camping.

      totally agree, that thing has all sorts of features (weight) that you just drag around that do nothing to charge your bike battery. I probably missed, but I didn't see anywhere on the link what it has for a power source.

      Found similar on Dewalt's site https://www.dewalt.com/products/acce...rger/dcb1800b; it has their standard cordless batteries in it, four 20V 3Ah = 240Wh. That is very little energy for all that weight (and all those $$), the same as 48V 5Ah battery provides.

        That is instantaneous current for starting a motor vehicle. You need to calculate Watt-hours = Volts x Amp-hours per weight (or mass).

          Carrying a battery to charge a higher capacity battery makes no sense to me....
