  • 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.

  • Clive said:

    I bought one of these and I found it was putting out 24 volts not 12

    If you a measuring this without a load being placed on the panel this is completely normal (as a multimeter for example will give an incorrect reading from the panel if it is not on a load).

  • jackhealey said:

    Your packaging states that the panel LED shows BLUE when charging and RED when discharging power into battery.I have not seen it show RED at all.Does this mean that the battery is NOT charging.

    No, the unit has had a change in manufacturing, it now uses only the Blue LED to show charge status.
