A: You can trickle charge all types of 12V batteries including automotive batteries, deep cycle (traction) batteries, gel-cell batteries, and heavy-duty (stationary) batteries. Q3: Can the SolarCharger 170 drain my battery at night? A: No. All Sunsei™ solar panels are equipped with a built-in diode, which prevents any reverse current.

Q5: Can I start my vehicle with the SolarCharger 170 connected to the cigarette lighter socket or battery? A: Yes. The SolarCharger 170 can remain connected while the vehicle is operating. As a safety precaution while driving, store the panel in a secure place. Q6: Can the SolarCharger 170 be left outdoors? A: Yes.

Q7: Will the SolarCharger 170 always charge the battery through the cigarette lighter socket? A: In some car models, the cigarette lighter socket is inactive while the vehicle is off. Please consult your car owner's manual. In the event that your car presents this limitation, use the battery clamps wire provided with the unit in order to connect it directly to your battery. Q8: When I push the test button, the blue LED does not light up on the SolarCharger 170. A: If the LED is not lit when pressing the test button, it may mean that you are not exposing the unit to enough daylight. Please position the solar panel to maximize its exposure to the sun.Learn More
