    Just wondered how people had it wired up? Or do you take it inside and charge it over night? I'm going to wire mine up to my van battery so it charges when I'm driving ect but put a switch so I can disconnect when I'm using so I don't drain my van battery... Anyone else do this? Cheers

    Twin leisure batteries with dual smart charge. It does it on it's own.

    I got a battery and a split charger, but some times have to take it in to the house to charge, as don't do enough miles to put a full charge in, I noticed when I used a flow control, I had to charge the battery more, as it was always saying it was dead
