The Sunforce 50012 1.8-Watt Solar Battery Maintainer gives you another reason to love the sun--it can help keep your vehicle's battery charged. It provides up to 1.8 watts or 125mA of power to prevent the natural voltage drain of batteries over time. It includes both a lighter socket adapter and alligator clips to give you flexible connection options.
The Sunforce 50012 1.8-Watt Solar Battery Maintainer lets you harness the power of the sun, the most powerful and plentiful source of energy available to us. Unlike nuclear and fossil fuels, solar power is clean and pollution-free, and the equipment requires very little maintenance to operate.
This battery maintainer is designed to stave off the natural voltage drain that 12-Volt batteries undergo over time. It can also maintain the charge of a 12-Volt battery while it is providing energy to small electronics like cell phone chargers. The Sunforce 50012 1.8-Watt Solar Battery Maintainer is constructed with durable ABS plastic and features amorphous solar cells. This unit also includes suction cups for easy in-car installation. Since it is designed for use inside of a vehicle, it is not weatherproof and should be kept dry. This battery maintainer is an ideal choice for automobiles, recreational vehicles, and more.
Solar panels convert sunlight into an electric current, they do not store power. Amorphous solar panels are created by spraying silicon onto glass in very thin layers, and are commonly known as thin film solar panels. This process allows them to be better at generating electricity in all lighting conditions, including cloudy or shady environments. They have a maximum operating temperature range of -40 to 176-degrees Fahrenheit, requiring virtually no maintenance. They can even withstand impacts from one-inch hailstones at 50 miles per hour.
Amorphous solar cells work in all daylight conditions--even on cloudy days. Please note that this amorphous solar panel needs to be inside the dash of a vehicle or by a window indoors as it is not waterproof.

Since using this product I've only had to change my care battery once in almost ten years. Basically it will give you a few extra years and save you the hassle of jumping my car... Read morePublished 12 days ago by Paul S. Fratianni
I put this on that dash of a truck that is hardly used such that it gets a half day of sun. The output was insufficient to maintain the battery charge.Published 1 month ago by badley
Description should be guaranteed not to exceed 1.8w. I was trying to use this to keep a small battery charged to power an arduino and 3 computer fans. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Robert A Weiler
Keeps my truck battery from going dead when I forget to turn off my lights.Published 4 months ago by Raymond A. Bare
It didn't work. I followed the instructions and then when I went to start my truck it was as dead as it could be. I had to buy a new battery.Published 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
