Interested in feedback…would you build and use this no electronic solar tracker if we published the plans? : overlanding
This is my ideal overlanding. I like a challenge and I like the risk. I find it more rewarding when I do a track like this!

I bought this lead acid battery/jump starter/tire pump from Costco. I also have a GoLabs i200 coming in today.

I have a small Rig with a RRT that sleeps 3 and a mattress topper in the back of my Crosstrek that sleeps 2. I would like to have two battery power sources, since I have 2 “rooms” for people in my little rig.

I already have a Noco GB20 Lithium-Ion battery jump starter that works really well for my vehicles and a cigarette lighter powered air compressor to inflate tires. But it’s small and compact, just the way I like, but the jump starter doesn’t truly work as a battery source beyond charging a phone. Even then, I don’t want to be draining my primary emergency kit for little things like that.

That’s where the CAT comes in. It was cheap, can be a backup emergency kit since the battery has a MUCH larger capacity than the Noco and still isn’t terrible large. My only concern is that it has a lead acid battery.

The GoLabs i200 has a new fancy LiFePO4 battery that can be recharged like 4x as much as a Lithium-Ion before losing capacity. I’m assuming a lead acid is much much worse in that department. Is this CAT device worth keeping if it’s going to be used a lot as an electronic device charger, or should I return it and find another power source with a more modern battery?
