Electrical

I have no real idea where this topic belongs and no specific knowledge but hoping knowledgeable members will chime in . i see where refurbished Nissan Leaf battery packs may soon be available in the U S of A for approximately $2,850.00 . My thought/question is would this be a potential power source for extended electric only camping trips ? Seems like if the battery could drive a car for 75 milesish that it could possible power a small fiberglass trailer fridge, heater , lights for a few days ? Lee

The Nissan Leaf batteries are really not practical for a Scamp 16. They weigh several hundred pounds. Since that article was written, LIFEPO4 cells and LIFEPO4 12 volt drop in batteries have come way down in price.

A 100 amp hour LIFEPO4 12 volt drop in battery which incorporates a BMS (EDIT) weighs 25 lbs. and can be charged with an economical charger. Typical brands are BattleBorn, Renogy and Lion Energy. OR you build your own. One or two of these batteries is more than sufficient for a few days camping, powering LED lights, a compressor fridge and a propane furnace fan.

This channel on youtube provides extensive information, bench tests and reviews:
