    Works as advertised

    The Wagan Solar Power Battery Charger provides a trickle of energy that will keep your car battery topped-off with enough power to start your car -- as long as you drive it every 24-hours. Depending on what type of problem is causing your battery to drain when the engine is off, you will still have to drive your car regularly to fully re-charge the battery. In my experience, the trouble lights on my dashboard will not turn off, ever. That small amount of energy drain was enough to leave me with a battery too weak to turn the engine over. After a jump-start and a 40-minute drive, I put the Wagan Charger on my dash, parked the car in a position where it would get the maximum amount of sunlight during the day, and plugged the charger into my car's power outlet (the old "cigarette lighter" outlet.) When I went out to start my car the next day, the Charger's red LED light was blinking, and the car started with no problem. I discovered, however, that I needed to take my car for a spin AT LEAST ONCE EVERY 24-HOURS, or the battery would drain away. I skipped one day of driving, and my battery was stone-cold dead the following day.

    Motorcycle charger

    This charger has a long cord about 8-10 feet. I have a trailer I keep my bike in. The panel can be mounted like a slotted key hole but I sat mine on the roof and ran the wire through the side door and inserted in my power outlet. No more removing seat and battery cover to jump it off during bad riding months. My battery would only "click" the starter and two days later it had enough charge to start. Really surprised me as it is not intended to recharge battery just maintain charge. Overall works great. Great price too. Found similar charger on china import website and was same price. Would like to see optional alligator clips for direct battery applications such as lawn mowers, ATV, autos with switched outlets, etc.

    No blocking diode!

    The solar array doesnt have a blocking diode in it... a 4 cent, IN4007 diode would have kept this from draining everyone's batteries by preventing the electricity from flowing backwards through the system at night/low light when the solar array wasnt forcing power through the system... but they couldnt be bothered to do that. So it kills your battery.

    solar...

    a more of a vehicle/car battery maintainer. if you have a plan on storing your vehicle/car or will not use it for a longer period, this one is good. it keeps the battery charged and you will never have to worry restarting the engine. pls note, this will never charge a dead battery.

    Improved solar cell, misleading light

    The solar cells are protected from breaking better then the one I just broke. The blinking light only means "charge" as in the panel is getting sun, it shows nothing about whether or not current is going to your battery, (misleading description). I put in my own circuit to indicate when current is actually going to the battery.
