This unit provides a constance 0.5 amp charge. I have a few concerns. I hooked up a high quality voltmeter to it and the charge read somewhere between 16 volts and 18 volts (off the scale on my volt meter). Under a load (once connected to the battery) it may read a lower voltage but I have not measured it under load.
In any event, it charges the battery over a period of about four days and keeps it charged.
A real plus to this unit is that it is accompanied by an excellent array of leads. It has an extension cord that is about 8 feet long. There are four types of leads enclosed with the package.
The first are bare wires (+ and - (red & black)) that, on the other end, plug into the unit or the extension cord.
The second are a set of alligator clips (+ and - (red & black)) that, on the other end, plug into the unit or the extension cord.
The third is a male cigar lighter adapter that plugs into the unit or the extension cord.
The fourt is a female cigar lighter adapter that plugs into the unit or the extension cord.
All of the connections and leads are of good to high quality.
With these attachments, you have the versatility you need to hook it up to any vehicle or 12v battery.
This is well worth the $100 (approximate cost plus shipping).
Other than that, the only problem is upon receiving it, it had two large cracks across the glass. It still works, but is no longer weatherproof. You cannot see these until you open and remove the panel from its blister pack. Mine was shipped from Vermont to Chicago via UPS. Even though the box had "FRAGILE" printed on it, they didn't take good care shipping it. In the future I'll look for this sort of product in an outdoors recreation store in the area.
However, like another reviewer noted, my panel arrived damaged. Not just a couple of cracks, but shattered. The box was marked fragile, but was not packed accordingly. No styrofoam peanuts, no plastic cushion bags, just some wadded up paper to take up the extra space in the shipping box. The shipping box didn't even look very beat up. I called customer service and was very pleased with their prompt replacement. However, the replacement unit arrived in the same shape. Shattered. I returned both of them and got my money refunded. I purchased a similar Sunsei unit at a local store and have been pleased with it.
Amazon, either you have a bunch of broken product on your shelves, or you need to change how you ship fragile items. Or both.
i also like the fact that the charge is very sensitive even in a room with very little light, in other words dosent take no light as being a good answer, i highly recommend it for anyone that loves being outdoors

I bought two of these and they work great. They can be "daisy chained" which is ultra nice.
