BATTERY AND CHARGER: WHAT YOU WILL NEED
A suitable deep cycle marine battery can be obtained from reputable battery shops or through the Internet. Please consult with an experienced staff referring to "deep cycle" battery. The following specifics will also help.
This type of battery can last as long as an hour or more without charging. A large capacity battery is recommended, as you can use it for many years.
Battery catalogs describe nominal capacity in Ampere x Hours: e.g. 40AH, 80AH, etc.
To calculate hours of use when fully charged, simply divide this figure by the amperage of your electricity supply. For example, if the amperage is 16, a 40AH battery will provide 2.5 hours continuous (40AH divided by 16A) before recharging. Hatsuyuki ice shavers can shave one serving of shaved ice in utmost 15 seconds or so.
There are two types of battery:
A) Sealed and liquid. This does not leak even laid down. It can be charged between 50 to 100 times, maximum.
B) Non-sealed. A cost effective battery, it can be charged up to approximately 400 hundreds, providing long-term use. Good ventilation - or appropriate piping is necessary as there is a toxic gas discharges. Also the battery will leak liquid if laid down.
Please check the features you require.
A suitable charger is essential. About 12 hours charging time normally provides full power; we recommend overnight charging.
Please prepare suitable batteries and a charger to your desired specifications, considering the amount of shaved ice required from your HC8EDC/HF50DC.
