"Gen. Malcom has a good point. A sterling engine would probably be the best. Attaching it to rotate a DC motor. Preferably and if possible, get a motor that is made to run on the size batteries you want to charge."

"If you are serious about making (from scratch) a practical steam charger I think a turbine is the way to go, however I have read about converting existing piston devices to steam - either diesel engines or air compressors."

"Steam boilers, even simple one can be very dangerous. be sure to create one with the proper safety gear such as pressure relief valves, automatic oilers, etc. As for charging batteries, you do need to know the correct frequency of the generator,…"

"I would recommend starting off with a bit of research into electro-magnetic induction. Also you need the correct frequency and current to be able to charge the batteries, and not have the batteries be turning your generator, as if it were a…"

"I will go along with the post that implied keeping it simple - with a permanent magnet motor/generator for the electrical generation part of it. This has the advantage of simplicity, and it will charge, even if the batteries are dead. The…"

"Dunno about schematics, but considerations are a flywheel governor or similar to keep the gennie running when under load. Loads change depending on usage/demand, so a governor is required. Second, a steam gennie needs to be WATCHED: water levels in…"
