Re: iPad - the charging conundrum
Having just bought a C22 without much in the way of technology on board, no battery, I have just tackled this issue. The yard at the marina here in Arizona has added two deep cell marine batteries and a management/controller system to maintain them while in the slip via the available shore power. They claim this will keep all the necessary lights available, use of knot meter and depth finder and radio for the entire day, plus some, while out on the lake.
Supposedly the management system has also the capability of adding a solar panel to it that would maintain a pretty full charge on both batteries if I was camping out in one of the remote coves on the lake for a weekend and/or longer. We also installed a accessory charger for phones and I-Pads.
I'm waiting on spending the cash on the panel to see what my usage will be for away from the slip on overnighters since I'm not much of a camper especially on a C22.
