    Hey guys,

    I recently bought a Keene Mini Max and want to pack it into some remote areas on a backpack. The highbanker has a 12v battery operated pump so I wanted to ask those with experience what they would recommend using to power the highbanker?

    I saw online that amps makes a big different in how long you can run for. But typically the more amps the more weight you will be lugging around.

    Ultimately I would like to run the highbanker for 5-6 hours a day for a whole week. But since I will be out in the middle of nowhere (2.5 hour drive to the nearest refill point) I would like to recharge my battery at camp. Do any of you use generators, or solar panels to refill the charge on your batteries when out in the sticks?

    for my gold screw and blue bowl i use a homemade battery box. it has two 12ah SLA(sealed lead acid) batteries in a plastic ammo can. i charge it with a 50 watt solar panel.

    i would post some pictures but i can't figure out how.
