Thread: Lamping battery - ways to carry

    Lamping battery - ways to carry

    I have a 12v 17amp battery which I carry in a bag on the shoulder, is there another way of carrying it. Years ago I saw an article on a lamper who had fixed his to a plastic frame (not sure what it was called but think firemen carried breathig tanks on it) and it distributed the weight on the back and shoulders.I think this would be the best method, dont want to use a standard rucksack. Anyone what these frames are called?

    By three methods we may learn wisdom:
    First, by reflection, which is noblest;
    Second, by imitation, which is easiest;
    and third by experience, which is the bitterest

    +1 for above, Christ they are expensive but if you do any lamping at all i'd recomend selling your garn for one. I have a deben one and it fits on belt; hardly any weight at all. I used to carry a 17ah nightseacher battery after a nights lamping i was fit for bed with these buggers!!!!!!
