The AA Solar Battery Charger is suitable for Car and Caravan + many other 12v batteries (Motorhome, Motorbike, Golf Buggy, Electric Fence etc..)
The AA Solar Panel Car Battery Charger is ideal for vehicles that have occasional use, or are used for short journeys as it extends battery life by keeping the battery in a good state of charge.
Modern vehicles have a small but constant battery drain such as alarm systems, and immobilisers. This means that over the course of a week or two with no or little vehicle use the battery can become discharged. A 12V battery that is not correctly maintained above 12.4V can suffer from sulphation. Sulphation is the number one cause of battery failure, something not covered under warranty as it is not a manufacturing defect.
The AA Solar Panel Car Battery Charger plugs directly into the EOBD plug socket inside your vehicle (standard on most cars, petrol from 2001 and diesel from 2004). The solar charger will trickle charge and maintain a 12V vehicle battery while the vehicle is parked by converting light energy during daylight hours into 12 volts DC.
The charger is easy to install and is fitted with a flashing blue LED light to indicate charge. There is built in discharge protection as well as reverse polarity protection and the Solar Charger will not overcharge your battery. The 'THINFILM' technology allows a wider spectrum of natural light to be absorbed, meaning the unit can still generate electricity under cloudy winter conditions. This technology also enables the solar panel to handle the intense heat of the summer sun with little power loss due to the rising temperature.
Direct battery clamp style connector clips with a generous 2.8m connector lead are also included as well as four suction cups to allow easy installation in most vehicles. A seven page user guide and quick start guide are included to give the user easy to follow step-by-step instructions.
