19600Re: [Hammock Camping] Electric heating pad or blankets
- Dec 9, 2008there are different kinds of camping. my motto is "i can rough it if
i have to".
my wife would like this idea. usually we take the down comforter car
camping. if it's too cold for that, we're in front of the fireplace at
if you do consider one of these, their so called "low draw" of 4 amps
will require a fairly good battery. any electrical device that makes
heat needs a lot of juice. i would not recommend using your car
battery when the car is not running! a small jumper battery, usually
about 17 AH will last about 4 hours and a large 55 AH deep cycle will
probably hold up for one night.
