    Yes, I've got that exact one. Seems to work great. However it won't charge the controller.

    $15 on eBAY

    A lot of people are using this car charger from Toshare on Amazon. I'm not sure if that's what is pictured above, but people always say the Toshare car charger works well.

    So, my question is, how do you charge a 15v P3 with 12v?
    If it was me, I'd get a small 120v inverter and just plug it in.

    When car engine is running, it produces about 14.5 - 17 volts. But anyway we use boost DC-DC converters, which step up and regulate the voltage to the desired.

    A small one wont work-- takes a 1000 watt -- I have one -- but have had issues with it blowing fuses -- when plugged in direct to the car plug. If I hook it direct to the battery, it works ok-- but kind of hard driving down the road with it hooked to the battery if I want to charge when driving.

    1000 Watts? 50W is enough for a battery charging.

    You only need 120 watts to charge one battery. I have a 300 watt charger and it will charge 3 batteries at the same time.
