Convenient Power That Helps Keep Your Batteries Charged
This Sunforce solar charger 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.
The Power Sports Charger may be attached directly to your battery using either of the accessories included with the charger. Included with the charger are a set of “O” Rings as well as a set of battery clamps. Both are equipped with quick connect technology to allow quick and easy connections.
About Amorphous Solar Power
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 Silicon key points:
- Lightweight, portable, and shade tolerant
- For entry to solar or hands on solar
- Best for smaller output needs, temporary set ups, and areas that do not receive predictable sun conditions

As with everything like this- check the polarity with a meter to make sure it's correct. THE POLARITY OF THIS DOES NOT MATCH THAT OF BATTERY TENDER CABLES. These are actually backwards from what they should be. Battery tender cables have the positive terminal recessed on the battery end (as it should be), so that if it's unplugged and uncovered, it won't short out on the chassis. These have the positive exposed on the battery end, which can fry some stuff, if you're not careful.
Also, i don't think the polarity of the supplied accessory cable will work with accessories such as GPS and cell phone chargers.
I plan on re-splicing the extension cable that came with this, to match the Battery Tender cable that is already installed on my motorcycle.
The polarity issue is why i only gave this 4 stars.
Now THE IMPORTANT STUFF: As others have noted, most "quick connect" plugs commonly used on most trickle/maintenance chargers have SHIELDED the "HOT" lead from the battery. Not so with this device as the "neutral" is shielded and hot exposed. I can see their logic as it would seemingly match, but the manufacturer failed to think this all the way through and at the end, the polarity will be reversed and will drain and perhaps damage your battery.
THE POLARITY ON THE SUPPLIED PLUGS with the Sunforce are "BACKWARDS" But, relax as it is an easy fix and I will explain how I did it: Using a multi-meter to make certain I was getting the polarity matched, I simply the cut wires, thus severing a plug off of one end of the SUPPLIED EXTENSION LEAD. I then swapped the wires, then soldered (or you could twist or use a connector) the wires to the plug back together after having "reversed" or crossed the wires. I used heat shrink wrap to seal the new connections and viola! A quick fix!. Easy and I did not have to "open" the unit thus voiding a warranty.
I wrapped red tape on my new "hot " lead (or use paint, a red magic marker, etc.). Please take your time (even so it is quick fix) and use a meter if you have one to make sure polarity at the plug heads match up then go for it! It seems like an unnecessary step (and it should be) but there are few solar chargers out there as opposed to maintainers. I did not want a maintainer, I needed a charger and this product fit the bill.
The solar panel itself seems sturdy and well made. I would love to give this product a 5 star, but the Chinese to English interpreters should have done a better job with their instructions. It is too bad the end user has to figure this out and thankfully I read the advice of other reviewers before install, as I may have ruined a battery as others have.
I hope my review has been helpful to you.
