    if you use a full size car battery you should be able to do lots of hives, just put it on a little pull wagon or garden cart, if you get a deep cycle battery like the ones used for the electric trolling motors for small boats they are designed to go from full charge to almost dead and then get recharged without damaging the battery, and if you want to get real fancy you can get a solar charger( they are cheap now a days) for the battery and hook it up to the cart and as your vaporizing the battery will recharge..I use a lawn tractor battery( $29.99 from tractor supply) that I used for testing my vaporizers and got many tests out of it , I will just carry it to the hive as I only have one hive so far, when I start vaporizing... ...

    thats basically a small battery in a fancy package, a full size deep cycle battery will outlast that much longer, but moving it around is more cumbersome...hence a little lawn cart that holds all the vaporizing supplies you can just pull around to all the hives...

    PIA when you have to go to several yards. I like mine, have 3 of them and seldom run out of juice.

    My box says Burgess Propane Powered Insect Fogger, doesn't give a size, mine has a detachable yellow jar, the spot it screws in perfectly fits a standard mason jar, so I made a mason jar of everclear with oxalic acid. Item #16443652N

    and I recommend that because its easier to store and keep the liquid from evaporating, etc., if it is in a mason jar.
