Onboard Electricity System

Using electric power at sea differs from using it at home.

Onboard battery system is the main source of electricity on a boat.

When moored in a marina, sailors can connect to the shore power system to get AC 220/240 V. Electric generator, although noisy and diesel-hungry, can provide you with the same power during sailing.

A 12 V ‘car lighter’ adapter can be used to charge mobile phones, tablets and laptops. Make sure to bring solar chargers and power banks as well.
