I listen to internet radio and audiobooks on my cellphone while out fishing. I use a bluetooth headset so that I can keep the cellphone in a watertight container. Running internet + bluetooth will deplete the cellphone battery after about 3-4 hrs so I was hoping to wire a cellphone charger into my FF battery. I mocked something up for ice fishing use, wiring a cigar-lighter receptacle in parallel with the FF and then just plugging a cellphone automobile charger into this to run the cell all day. Worked great - both cell and FF ran all day without a problem. Now I want to repackage all this (gel battery + cellphone + cigar lighter + automobile charger plug + inline fuse) for use on my PA14. I can probably find a waterproof otter box or whatever for an under deck mount, but was just wondering if others have cracked this nut in some more creative manner. Rear hatch waterproof storage box? Cockpit-mounted cellphone charger?
