Rated 4 out of 5 by from ok here's a fair and honest review this is not a charger so don't buy it thinking it will charge a car battery, because it won't. what it will do is keep your battery topped up. on a sunny day i tested mine with a maplins multi-meter and it kicks out about 127mah at about 17volts, which isn't much, but as the name says it's a 12V 2.4W Battery Trickle Charger (the volts go down when you attach it to a battery, it comes with suction pads which after wetting stick on a window for days before needing to be reapplied, i use mine to boost my solar array (especially when we have overcast days) would i recommend it ? well if you can get it while it's on offer yes ,then combine two and you have 4.8 watts

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought two of these one for a car and one for my motorbike, and they work perfectly. my motorbike is unused for six months and was sick of buying batteries as i dont have electric to the garage, so I put this on and combined it with the Maplins solar regulator ,Code: N94NG. I recommend you use a regulator so as to not overcharge the battery, I just put the solar panel aginst the Garage window and the car one on the dash when not using it and they work faultlessly, wish I had these years ago. Just buy one you wont regret it. Mark

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight free energy I now have two of these, I use them to keep my motorcycle batteries in tip top condition. Saves me time when accessing the battery. Immobilisers and alarms constantly discharge the battery and when there is more than one bike (it is difficult to ride more than one at a time) batteries will lose charge. These are cheap, reasonably robust and not too big for a small workshop. Would be a great buy to keep a Classic car battery topped up too.

When the battery is fully charged does the charging stop, can the battery be over charged, is it an intelligent charger?

Asked by: MIke
I'm afraid not , If unattended You should never leave a battery on charge unattended for such a length of time. If you are worried about overcharging use a charge regulator, it would also be prudent to check the battery solar cell wiring and regulator at regular intervals. On the below link is a charge regulator : https://www.maplin.co.uk/p/12v-30a-solar-charge-regulator-n28kr

Can I leave this solar panel trickle charger connected to my Boat Battery when the engine is running, if not how do I isolate the panel without having 2 x live crocodile clips in hanging in the battery box?

Asked by: Blue Fin
The panel MUST be disconnected from the battery when the engine is running. Unfortunately we are unable to advise on any kind of specific wiring or project design. If you are unsure of how to accomplish this it would be advisable to contract the services of an qualified electrical installer.

Is it possible to overcharge battery if no regulator used? Or do damage of any sort? The recommended regulator is described as switching off when battery full (fine), and switching on when battery is empty (too late surely!). Is that really how it works?

Asked by: Realmccoy
No a regulator would allow the trickle charging of the a battery as it dips below full. You wouldn't normally need a regulator until you go over around 13w to 15w.

Do you just plug this into the cigarette lighter socket and put it in your window and it trickle charges your batteries or do you have to use the crocodile clips to connect direct to the battery to trickle charge? I thought cigarette lighter sockets draw.

Asked by: Sandy
It will depend on the design of the car, if the cigarette socket remains active when the car is off, then you can use that socket for charging. However some cars isolate the socket to prevent external devices draining the battery, in which case you would need to connect directly to the battery.
