SOURCE: solar battery charger

Yes, but the efficiency of solar cells is terrible. Its one thing to use free sunlught to charge the cells, its another to have to pay the electric company to do it. If you can access the batteries in the solar rig easily and they are in the correct voltage range, I think you would be better off getting a battery tender (trickle charger). Just let the van sit outside until the batteries are fully charged, then connect the battery tender to keep it fully charged.

Testimonial: "This in fact is what I ended up doing, Sears had its model on sale for $20. Car's outside so I needed to hide the charger; it's in engine compartment"

If the car has a cig lighter, you may be able to use a trickle charger plugged into the lighter socket.
Or you may be able to connect jumper cables to the starter from under the car.

How do I charge a battery in the car


It is usual to clip the red and black cables from the charger to the battery terminals leaving the vehicle connected to preserve the radio settings. If you are trickle charging, less then 5Amps, use the cigar lighter socket to charge through.

The battery on my 1194 S420 needs to be charged. I can't open the truck to get to the battery. What do I do? HELP!


You can buy a trickle charger that will charge the battery through the cigarette lighter socket, but it won't charge the battery quickly. I'm guessing that the "1194" should read 1994. Some newer cars won't work with a cigarette lighter charger.
If you have a manual transmission you can actually push start the car by getting it rolling, putting the ignition in "run", and then popping the clutch. Not something that you can do if you haven't seen it done before, though.
Best wishes and I'll keep my fingers crossed that it works out.

2006 Buick Lucerne/ 10 mo.dead battery told i need to put 1000 ml. a mo. to keep battery????


That is not necessarily correct-if the car sits all the time, parasitic drain on the battery will eventually kill even a new battery. Telling someone that a car has to be driven 1000 miles a month to maintain the battery is not a solution-if you don't drive alot, get a trickle charger ($good one is $30, one that works can be found for $10) that you can plug in and keep hooked up to the battery to keep it fresh. Another way is to get a solar panel charger (1 1/2 watt, about $20 at Harbor Freight) and put the panel on the dashboard, and the other end into the cigarette lighter socket in the dashboard. A third solution is to buy a deep cycle battery (Optima) that can be fully drained hundreds of times yet will recover and work properly-these are expensive ($175), but out perform conventional batteries that die if fully discharged a few times. You could also install a remote starter and periodically start the car, letting it run for 15 minutes-about $200

In my personal opinion, electrical current recharging, unattended for a long period of time, backflowing through a circuit not designed for it with the proper fuses and protection, is asking for trouble. Wouldnt it be better to disconnect the battery, and have it fully charged when you get back? The downside is that you will lose radio code and check engine history, but if the check engine light is not on, you havent lost much.

Battery and cold storage of car for several months


a good battery will hold a charge through the winter if disconected from the vehicle adn left fully charged.
you may want to look into a battery monitoring charger, it is a trickle charger that is designed for long term use, it monitors battery volts and turns on when needed.

also put carpet squares or cardboard under the tires if you are parking on concreet. this will help prevent dry rot and flat spots
