What is Amorphous Solar technology?
Amorphous solar panels are created through a deposition process which forms the silicon material directly on the glass. More simply explained the silicon is sprayed on to the glass in very thin layers, commonly known as thin film solar panels. This process allows amorphous solar panels to be better at generating electricity in all lighting conditions.
How long does it take to charge a 12V battery?
Charge time depends on the size of the battery and the amount of sunlight, it typically takes a few days.
Do you have to worry about the Solar Panel over charging the battery?
Yes it is recommended to use a solar charge controller with this solar panel.
Is the Solar Battery Maintainer weather proof?
Yes the 15 Watt Solar Battery Charger is meant for outdoor use and is weather proof.
Should the 15 Watt Solar Battery Charger be disconnected from the vehicle battery before starting the engine?
The 15 Watt Solar Battery charger can remain connected and it will not affect the operation of the vehicle or operation of any of the electrical components. This panel is meant for permanent installation.
Will the 15 Watt Solar Battery Charger keep my vehicle battery charged?
The 15 Watt Solar Battery Charger will eliminate dead batteries caused by natural voltage losses and key-off small instrumentation drains. Electronics such as clocks and vehicle alarms add to the natural drain of the battery, even when the ignition is off. The 15 Watt Solar Battery Charger compensates for those constant losses by replenishing your battery at a maximum rate of 1 Amp per hour in full sunlight.
What types of batteries can I charge with the 15 Watt Solar battery Charger?
You can charge all types of 12 Volt batteries including automotive batteries, deep cycle (traction) batteries, gel-cell batteries, and heavy-duty (stationary) batteries.
Can the 15 Watt Solar Battery Charger drain my battery at night?
No. The 15 Watt Solar Battery Charger Solar panel is equipped with a built-in diode, which prevents any reverse current.
What is the power output of this solar panel?
The rated output is 15 Watts/1Amp.
What is the solar battery charger made of?
The frame is made of durable ABS plastic and the panel is made using amorphous solar technology.
