A friend called last night enquiring about a solar powered battery charger for a boat, rv, etc. Has anyone ever used one & do they work? I don't know anything about them and thought I would ask around here. I would think it would be more for maintaining a battery. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.


Reality. What a concept!

if it will be parked and not used for a couple of months then it is helpful, for charging after a trip they are worthless.

they are basically a trickle charger dependent on sunshine, brighter the day the more output but still a trickle charge.

I have a 100 watt solar charger I use on my RV. On a bright sunny day, it charges at about 8.3 amps. That keeps the RV battery fully charged after a night of use. It works OK for boondocking, but as a full time charger, you have to remember partly cloudy days, cloudy days, and nights. .
