I like to go camping and want to use my bike more than one charge.

Anyone know how big of a inverter (DC to AC)
I would need to charge my Rad Rover ?

Thanks

I assume the charger is around 3A and 48v, so maybe 150 watts. In general, you can use the cheap inverters, not the pure sine wave inverters. So maybe get a 300 watt or up. They are very cheap these days, the basic ones, places like Amazon. Something you can connect directly to a battery, probably. At 150 watts you are close to the point where you can't use cigar lighter plugs, which many inverters have.

Could be a little hard on a car battery, if you weren't moving.

It is a 2A 48V charger . I do know it would be hard on the battery and
was planning on charging it while traveling with the car. I do have a 350
watt inverter I just wasn't sure if that was going to be enough !

Thanks for the info !
