Can someone answer if this is possible or they do it.. Its nice to have a cell phone with me, even though service is not good. The phone seems to search alot and drain the battery.

Is it possible to connect a battery, like a house alarm battery to an invertor and charge my cell phone slowly, when needed???

Get a car (12v) charger, a 12v deep cycle battery and a solar panel to keep it charged.

That's what I use. The 12 volt battery with solar panel would work most likely. I think I will try it next week with feeder batteries. Anyway...

No, (I can't believe I'm saying this) Sniper's solution is much better, costs much less, requires less maintenance, and costs about 10% of what I suggested.

Go with Sniper's suggestion. I'm buying one for the RV.

Sorry Sniper.

If you have service it can be a life saver.

I don't know about you but I already have multiple feeder batteries and a few solar panels at home I think I might try and put something together.

I am posting this from the blind BTW.

Turn off Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and gps. That will save a lot of battery life. Then just grab one of those battery packs Sniper recommended. Works great.

Lol, you sir have my respect. I hope you know I was just giving you a hard time!!!!

This should be in the deer section though since we are talking about deer hunting.
