I am building a field box that will include a 7 ah gel battery, Triton Jr. charger, and a Hobico power panel. I will be using it for charging battery packs both at home and in the field. I use a car charger at home to charge the gel battery. This has male banana plugs and I would like to put female banana plugs in the field box for ease of connection when the gel battery needs to be charged, but I am concerned about possible damage to the power panel and Triton Jr. charger.
Is there any reason why I couldn't charge the gel battery with both the power panel and /Triton Jr. connected to it at the same time? Should I install a switch disconnecting the
- lead to the power panel/Triton Jr. charger when I am charging the gel cell? Or, must I keep the power panel and Triton Jr. charger totally isolated while charging the gel cell? TIA.
