Togo 12 Volt Batteries - Tips

Hello Chris, Life without electricity 1. Lights here is easy.
2. Cooking is easy.
3. Fan is difficult
4. 12 Volts converted to power for computer seems easy, how long it will last is the question. I need to make a 12 Volt Charger. What Togo probably wants or needs is a freezer to keep foods in extreme heat from spoiling, and to sell, I do not need this. I have found two sized of 12 Volt Motorcycle Batteries, made in China The have 6 cell, I believe normal lead, and you need to add acid he say, the man from Nigeria The one is about 3 x 3 x 4 inches high and sells for 2500 CFA or 5 US Dollars. The other one is about 3 x 6 x 4 inches high and sells for 3000 CFA or 6 US Dollars. I can buy 12 Volt Light Bulbs for motorcycles real easy, and socketc, etc, so lights is easy. Charger. I cannot find a way to charge this battery. I have the small pad solar charger that came with the wood cooker and I think would charge this battery. BEST SOLUTION IS: A 220 to 12 Volt Charger like a person would use for a car, nobody seems to know anything about them here, I have to believe somewhere in Lome, or Accra the sell them. Everyone pushes solar, and this is good, IF I am not moving, but moving makes is pretty complicated. I am lucky, I had the foresight to make an extension cord for the 12 Volt Solar Charging pad and I can run the wire from the pad to the room, I suppose I always need about 6 meters or yards, I do not have, but I can rig that. I do suppose this pad wil charge the battery, and continue to charge the battery. I now need a 12 volt fan, how much in the USA for a 12 Volt Fan? Andy in Atakpame, Togo Thank you,
