Interesting how a courtesy light will drain a battery so quickly...

When we go camping we run a couple of fluorescent strip lights, a little 12V TV and the air bed inflator from the car battery. I risked 3 days once without starting the car (a little silly perhaps) but everything was fine. I fitted a suitable battery from a diesel Megane (off the top of my head I can't remember the specs) which improved its cold starting abilities immensly, and i guess the heavier-duty nature of a diesel battery helps when using it as a "liesure battery"

2015 '65 Vauxhall Astra SRi, and a variety of "lovely" buses
