    I would like to charge a battery as it is drawn upon from a light that:

    v/c: AC85-260v/ .6~1.6A

    W: 160w


    The light will be on for at most 12 hours. I will be using hydro turbines to create electricity.

    Any recommendations?

    Do you want to know how to choose a battery or do you have more general questions about the whole system?

    What is your generator's output range?

    My recommendation would be to use an off the shelf charger. Sunforce makes a very good line and their techs are very helpful.


    And you need to put a lot more effort into your posts if you want help.

    For example what is 160w mean? Is that the wattage of you bulb? Or the total watts consumed?

    If is is the wattage of your bulb then you are going to need a pretty big bank and a turbine to match to do the charging.

    160 is total watts consumed.

    You still haven't explained why you need another thread. Expect this thread to be closed by a moderator.

    It would be much easier to help you figure out what is needed if you would post the voltage of the bulb, the charger output voltage and current etc.
    I see you posted the standard switching input voltage of around 86 to 250 or so ac @ up to 1.6 amps. Just didn't state what the output voltage is. Also need the voltage of the bulb you plan to use. all these have to match their needs. This power supply mentioned may not be adequate to supple enough power at only 1.6 amps from the primary supply.
    There are several ways to achieve your needs if all the data is available.

    Somebody mentions 260v and the thread should be closed? The Moderators should get rid of all the blather instead.
