futureechos Posted January 3 Share Posted January 3 Noticed a couple of slow (low battery power) starts on the car when left for a couple of weeks. I do have a couple of things in the Cigarette lighter (MagSafe Phone Charger) which has an LED which is likely to drain a tiny amount over time.. to combat this I was wondering if a Small Solar charge would add a small amount of charge over time to counter a tiny drain. I'd like to leave a panel on rear shelf and plug it into the cigarette socket by handbrake and kind of forget about it, perhaps unplug when starting engine. I don't want to faff each time I get in the car so disconnecting from battery each time is not what I am after. So any experience of these Solar chargers? I don't want a mains trickle charge to be honest, I think it's excessive as I drive usually 2-3 times every week and only leave for 1-2 weeks every so often when it might need a tiny top up. Spend approx £40? Appreciate Sunlight and UK not a good combo in the winter. Loads on amazon etc (random example): https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sunway-Solar-Maintainer-Motorcycle-Snowmobile/dp/B06WP95W51/ref=sr_1_5?crid=1W4VE7WIARF8F&keywords=solar+battery+charger+12v+car+lighter&qid=1672765505&quartzVehicle=29-10519&replacementKeywords=solar+battery+12v+car+lighter&sprefix=solar+battery+charger+12v+car+lighter%2Caps%2C100&sr=8-5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
