Solar battery charger

Recommended Posts

Just put "solar battery charger" into eBay and there are thousands.

Maybe someone could give a recommendation as the choice is huge.

My concern would be leaving a basic one on for too long and trickle charging the battery to death. I am sure there are smart versions that can be left on without problem.

Whatever type the batteries are I too would recommend a charger with a controller to limit the voltage to prevent overcharging.

Conversely a very small unit may not put in enough charge to balance losses.

While batteries are best stored charged they do like to be used. Running headlights etc for a few hours will cycle them plus give some indication if still holding a reasonable capacity compared to the specification.
