It should do fine. $28 bucks for a battery and a charger isn't bad at all. Granted, it does not say what the output of the charger is so it may not work as an adapter but all you need to do is connect the charger after every cook and you should always have enough power.
I was using a 4 AH gel battery, it was just half size of this one.
This must be a lead battery
But now I am using LI metal battery. The size is 4 pieces of #5 cell battery.
Much smaller and lighter
