My game cam is 45 minutes from my house, I'm in the process of setting up a 12V battery system for my Wildview xtreme 3. The thing is, I would like to avoid downtime, and can't really afford to drive up more than once/week. If I only have one 12v battery, once it dies I would have to take it home 45 minutes, charge it, and bring it back the next week. What I'm wondering is if there is a way to charge one of these 12V sla batteries using jumper cables attached to my truck battery, like you would charge a car with a dead battery. The other solution, would be to buy 2 batteries, but keeping cost down would be ideal. Would this be possible, and if so would it be reasonable, or would I have to leave it on the cables so long that it wouldn't be worth it? Thanks.
