    HI ALL...
    Do i have to use a car charger to charge my batteries in the car? i know it sounds stupid but i bought some cheap device that turns my car lighter into a 3 prong inlet so can i plug my regular charger into that instead of buying a dedicated car charger or will that hurt my batteries?
    Thank you!!!

    Inverter solved my problem. Loads cheaper than a car charger!

    Yes, it may be cheaper then a car adapter, but it actually is a lot less efficient. Meaning it will drain more power from your car battery to run the inverter to charge your batteries, then it will using a car charger directly connected.

    Just food for thought.
