Does the lighting system connect straight to the battery? I have the Freeloader 40 fold up solar panel and looking for a compatible lighting system.  

Asked by: Solarewbie
Yes, I am pleased to advise the item will support this use.

Would it be possible to use this to charge a small car battery? My thoughts were that is has to put charge into a car battery anyway.

Asked by: AlanW
Yes the panel charges a 12v battery (not supplied) The lights are then powered by the energy generated and stored in the battery.
