Won't work with alfa 147 2001 version via cigar socket
The cigar lighter socket on my car does not supply power and cannot receive power through to the battery when the engine is not running, I do run devices off the cigar socket, some times an inverter, this only works when the engine is running.
I bought this to charge the battery of my ride on lawn mower that we have in France. It worked wonderfully while we were there. We returned to France four weeks later, it had stopped working and the battery was dead flat. I give it 1 star because I can't give it any less
I'm using this solar panel to charge batteries of USB devices, just plug in a car cigarette power splitter with USB port, then you can charge your Bluetooth headphones and mp3 player
I used this on our Cadet Squadron bus to help it over long periods of inactivity, I coupled it through inline fuses via a relay which cut it out the moment anyone turned the ignition on. (the panel may be damaged by using the starter whilst it is connected, see) It is permanently on the dashboard and has been absolutely reliable & successful. Great product and thus mounted is idiot proof!
Had one of these chargers for a while now and have found that it keeps the battery on my car topped up. Had no trouble starting the motor at all. Excellent value at ???10.
This is a good piece of kit, I had to park up one of my cars for 8 months, so I fitted one of these, and the battery stays topped up, and the car starts instantly when required, worth the money......
absolutely useless, batteries actually went flat in the peak of sunny weather here on 3 different cars I have, I bought 2. idon't know about what's going on with the positive feedback it received here .
This is a great item produces a lot of power for such a small panel even in overcast conditions, keeps battery charged even if not used for long periods found it appears to even extend the life of the car battery if used constantly Can be used to charge lots of different things to , if you buy a car 12volt socket plug and a power drop lead with different ends ask about it in the store best money i ever spent
I read the other reviews a couple of weeks ago before I bought mine. They are mostly spot-on. I did hope that this would work via my cigarette lighter but was not surprised when it didn't. However I can sit the panel on the dash and I run the wire around / under the passenger door and then under the bonnet of my Alfa 159. Only a couple of inches of wire are visible outside the car?�?�?? and the battery is topped up. I would recommend the solar panel to other people who have a car where the battery is exhausted by the drain from the alarm etc. over a period of a couple of weeks or more.
so far so good seems to work even under the living room light

i have one of your solar powered battery trickle chargers which I use when I leave my car for up to two months. I have recently purchased a new car which has stop/start technology and has an AGM battery. Can I still use the charger with this battery. If not do you have an alternative product?
Is this unit water proof ?

Can leaving the solar charger connected for a few months harm the battery?
Can I extent the leads to this unit
Having read the reviews for this product, I noticed a couple said that it did not work via the cigarette lighter socket, is this a common problem? Would like to know before purchasing one.
Could I connect two in series to enable me to charge a 24volt battery?
Alastair Ross said:
Can this be used to charge a sealed lead acid battery?
dave presley said:
Can i attach this and leave the unit charging constantly when hooked up to cigar connection? Will it need ignition for that?
This will depend on the car, if the car has an active cigarette socket connection irrespective of ignition it will trickle charge constantly when connected in this manner. However, if the car requires ignition then this unit will connection directly to the battery instead of via the socket in order to trickle charge correctly.
just purchased 12volt solar charger and it says if led light flashes blues its charging the one i purchased does not flash it stays constant blue is this stil charging thanks anthony
Do you have available the mating connectors so that I can extend the cable run(other than the crock clips and cigar lighter plug)?
