I would like to be able to charge my batteries while in storage. No power there. I have 2 12 volt batteries hooked together to run my 24 volt trolling motor. It is hooked up to a 2 bank charger that I plug in when at the house. Is there a solar panel system that I can easily plug into the 2 bank charger to charge my batteries while in storage?

Think I finally found what I'm looking for. Called and guy was very helpful. Has anyone used one of these DuraVolt 24 volt solar chargers to charge your trolling motor batteries?

My logic and math may be off but here goes. Let us say a 10 am 2 bank needs 7 hours to get your batteries fully charged. They are both being charged at 10 amps. Your solar puts out 1 amp I'm thinking it would take 70 hours to get a battery up and 140 hours for 2. Trolling motor batteries need to be fully recharged within 24 hours of use or they won't last very long.

Some one please correct me if my logic or math is wrong.
