forget the heater, they draw too much power. coffee pots, hot plates all a big no no. if you plan on using batteries you have to charge them properly. a car charger wont do it and will ruin the batteries. deep cycle batteries get charged in stages, mine require to be brought up to 15.4 volts for 2 hours then floated at 14.4 the rest of the day, every day. handy bobs blog is a pretty good read on living of solar or batteries.
