This solar charger appears to be of very good quality and operates very well, but there is a warning that it must be disconnected before starting the car or serious damage will result. I think this could result in many "accidents" that require replacement of the charger. Obviously this could become expensive. Is there some way to avoid this problem. I'd hate to have every memory lapse cost me $15. I'd be bankrupt very quickly!
Please make my best uses comment read "Keeping a low use battery fully charged."

This is a 24 volt charger. If you use this on a car battery it will dry out the cells. I have been an auto tech with AAA for 9 years, this will absolutely kill your car battery prematurely, and also is very bad for the electronics in your car, they are designed for 12 volts, not 24. Burried in the manual that came with it, it does have 1 sentence stating that a voltage regulator must be used for automotive applications.... Which is $39 at harbor. Do not use this on your car, bad things are guaranteed to happen. I am returning mine in the morning, i sure am glad i attached a volt meter testing it before i hard wired it to my lawnmower battery, also just covering up half the cells will not drop the voltage, with 80% covered i was still reading a high 19 volts.... Still not acceptable

Great tool to keep batteries "Hot"
I use this to keep the tractor ready anytime. When not used for extended periods the battery will drain a bit but the solar charger makes it turn over like a new battery!10/13/2016

12 volt 1.5 watt battery maintainer. When I opened the box, the blue led started blinking. Amazingly in the inside dim light it actually started to produce power. I connected it to an old spare car battery. I placed the solar cell in a basement window. A week later it is keeping the battery at peak voltage. I liked it so much that I went out and got 3 more as gifts to friends.10/4/2016
No dead batteries in the Spring
I use the ones I have on my riding mower and on my emergency generator. No dead batteries when I go to use them. It is especially important on the generator as I hate to pull it when it's cold and raining out. My rider starts right up in the spring after sitting all winter unused. I love my solar chargers.9/30/2016
12 volt solar charger
I rate this 5 stars. I have 2 installed on my motorhome to
Keep the coach and engine batteries charged. Works great.
The only thing I'd like to see improved is the addition of a
Diode to prevent a backfeed of current to the panel.9/22/2016
