Okay, so I thought this was a pretty simple question. Let me set it up first.

I have a place at the ranch where we hang deer to process. To raise and lower them I use an old winch that is wired to be run from a truck battery. Right now I use a marine battery and a solar panel to keep it charged. Since all of that, I have run power out to this place for lights and a couple of outlets. Now. I want to be able to run that winch from a 110 ac outlet.

What is the easiest way to convert 110 v ac to 12 v dc in order to do this? Google searches have come up with a few $15 or $20 power converters that go from an ac plug to a cigarette lighter. But I've noticed that they all also have amp ratings (ie. 5 amps, 6 amps, 10 amps, etc). I have no idea how many amps that winch pulls when its operating, but i'm thinking it has to be way more than 10 amps. Any suggestions?
