Has anyone given a thought as to relocating their battery to the truck and adding another battery in parallel. I know a lot of people want to run their carPCs with the car off for a short amount of time (i.e. loading the map to something before they depart, or listening to music / watching a video while waiting for someone) Would it be feasible to add a second battery in parallel with the first to allow longer use before being discharged. Would there be any problems with charging or any other associated problems with using two batteries?
Similiarly, does anyone know a laptop that runs off of 12v DC? I know different laptops run off different voltages. If I can find one that I can wire to take 12v DC, then I can use the internal battery from the laptop to power the laptop when my car is off.
When you did it, did you have any problems with the setup?
I'm thinking of using two battery relocation kits, putting them in the trunk, and wiring it up with 0 gauge wire. (just to be on the safe side)
My reason is that I'm going to do the battery relocate anyways to get more room in the front and I want to have a video recording system with several cameras that I want running 24/7
