I like to go camping and use various gas stoves to do my cooking. I was curious with the current (no pun intended) state of battery technology, how heavy, bulky, and what sort of wiring it would take to cook via battery.
I found an electic skillet designed for RVs online, and its specs are 12v, 12.5amps, 150 watts.
What would be the lightest combination of batteries (motorcycle, car, AAs (NiMH, Lithim, Alkaline)) that would be required to satisfy this, and how should they be wired.
I had read that AA's although they may be rated to ~2000+ mAh, can't consistently put out more than .5 A. So my thoughts were 25 in parallel to get 13 amps, then those 25 in series with another 7 sets of 25 to get up to 12v. In theory that would provide the necessary amps and volts, for as much as 5 hours, but I'm sure there's more to it than that, and I'm not sure if a 12v motorcycle battery would be far smaller and lighter and still satisfy the requirement. And all of my calculations might be way off.
