Solar Panel Car Battery Charger

I didn’t realize plugging a charger into a car’s cigarette lighter could actually charge the car’s battery – usually it just sends electricity out, right? Nonetheless, the 1.8 Watt Solar Panel fits conveniently on any car’s dash, plugs into any standard cigarette lighter, absorbs the sunlight’s and charges your car’s battery…maybe.

Costs $20 and is available here and via Book of Joe.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

    Well, I'm so delighted that I have located this post because I have been trying to find some good info about this for nearly 3 hours. You helped me a lot without a doubt

    Lithium Ion batteries have a slightly higher voltage range and generate more heat. My suggestion is to purchase NiMH rechargeables Рthey are safer in a camera designed for regular AA batteries. You can purchase 4 AA NiMH 2500MAh Energizer batteries and a wall charger for $17-18 at Wal-Mart. buy it from laptop parts.

      That would be fine, Bruster.

      However I’m more concerned about what might happen to it when starting the car. If it was permanently attached it might be on the receiving end of some big spikes. Normally the lighter socket is disconnected when starting the car.
