The Sunforce 5-Watt Trickle Charger Twin Pack includes 2 units of the 5-Watt solar battery trickle charger. Each unit is the ideal solution for maintaining 12-Volt batteries for your cars, RVs, tractors, ATVs, electric fences, deer feeders, boats, and more. Just plug these devices into your vehicle's 12 Volt lighter socket and position the panels to pick up the most daylight possible. Or, if you prefer, use the included alligator clips to connect them directly to the battery, so you can keep your lighter socket open for cell phone chargers or other accessories.
Regardless of how you hook up the battery chargers, you'll never get caught off guard without the juice you need to start your car. Made of durable ABS plastic and amorphous solar cells, these units are completely weatherproof, charge in all daylight conditions and have an integrated blocking diode that protects against battery discharge at night. Each panel includes 4 pre-cut holes for easy installation, as well as battery clamps, a CLA adapter, and 10 feet of wire.
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.
This trickle charger 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 or small pumps and motors. The Sunforce 50022 5-Watt Solar Battery Trickle Charger is constructed with durable ABS plastic and features amorphous solar cells and an ultra-bright blue LED charging indicator. Four mounting holes are pre-cut in the frame for easy permanent installation. It is weatherproof and remains effective even on cloudy days. The built-in overcharge/discharge protection prevents overcharging and reverse-current drain. This trickle charger is an ideal choice for automobiles, recreational vehicles, all-terrain vehicles, tractors, boats 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. These solar panels are completely weatherproof, and can be used indoors or outdoors.
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
