    Hi! Need help regarding charging. Is it possible to charge a p3 battery with a p2 charger. Also have anybody tested the cheap P3 car charger on ebay for about 10 dollars. Please give me a link of regular chargers and car chargers that in your opinion will work.
    Best regards
    Petter

    Don't even try... Different completely. Want to charge in your car. It's better to use the 110 charger on an inverter. The inverters can be picked up at a less cost them the car charger. Pick up an inverter that is 200 watts or more.

    The p2 charger only puts out a tiny bit over 12.6 volts while the p3 battery needs just shy of 18volts so it will not work. and any of the car type chargers will not work unless its got some sort of step up converter in to to be able to raise the cars 12-14.8 volts up to about 18 volts to be able to charge a p3 battery.

    Do as others suggested and get an inverter. You will be much happier. and you can also use the inverter to plug other stuff in to as well. Like if you want to charge your tablet or what not.
