How Do You Use A Solar Battery Car Charger?

Simply place it on the dashboard of your automobile and plug it into the cigarette lighter. It will then utilize sunlight to generate the power you need for your vehicle. To ensure the charge is present, the Solar Car Battery Charger has an L.E.D. light that indicates when it is on. It's that simple.

Check out our products above to find the solar car charger that fits your needs.

Charge Controllers

Why use a charge controller? We recommend that you use a solar charge controller on any photovoltaic system when the total watt output of your panels is 5 watts or higher. In simple terms, these units act as an on/off switch for your solar panel. This prevents the panels from overcharging your battery or batteries when they reach full charge. The controller measures the voltage in the battery and shuts off when fully charged, and turns back on when the battery voltage drops. This allows your panel to act as a smart battery charger, giving you worry free solar battery charging.

Helpful Hints

Controllers are typically rated in amps, with the ratings meaning how high an amp current it can safely pass. Solar panels are rated in watts. A typical 15 watt solar panel will produce about 1 amp-hour per hour of solar power. Keep in mind that when testing your solar charge controller, that it will NOT allow power to pass when not connected to a battery. Please read our Solar Tutorial, or use our Solar Calculator for futher info. If you get stuck, or need more info, give our friendly tech guys a call.

The pages listed above are designed to give a better understanding of the particular uses that the panels are most often used in.  There are other more unique applications that are not shown and may be perfectly fine for use with one of the panels listed there.  If you can't find your specific application, please give our tech team a call at 541-474-4421, or chat with them live during business hours.  On the Other hand, if you simply want to browse our complete collection of solar products, you can find them here.
