This charger is connected to a 6 V. sealed lead/acid battery for a deer cam in northern Michigan. The problem is, when a lot of flash pictures are taken, even this battery cannot keep up with the power demand over time. Since we cannot make it up for weeks at a time, the deer camera became unreliable. Purchasing this solar panel, mounting it to a tree near by and connecting it to our battery, this charger keep the charge up while we are gone. Testing it, in full mid-day sun, this solar panel's output is 10 volts and just over 100 ma. In shade and other times of the day, output drops to the mid 6 volt range. This unit is diode protected, so the panel itself will not discharge the battery on its own. In all, I'm pleased with the purchase and it appears to have solved our battery power maintainence problem.
