Default RE: Solar Or Wind To Charge Field Box Battery?

Try this to eliminate some of the complexity of the situation. Use a voltage inverter to convert your truck DC into AC current, and then plug a standard battery quick charger in to charge the smaller 12v battery.

I run a setup like this all the time to charge all of my test equipment and gel cells in my work truck. It's next to impossible to take out my test equipment and charge in inside, so I just hook them to an inverter and charge them while I'm on the road.
