Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for difficult location We have a boat sumppump to keep water out after a rain. Solar panel keeps battery fully charged all time. May 13, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dead after 8 weeks I hooked it up to my Jeep battery and placed it in the windshield like it said to do. I waited several weeks before attempting to start the vehicle. I disconnected the unit, then tried to crank it up. Not only was the battery dead, but the maintainer was no longer working. Admittedly maybe the battery was so far gone the unit couldn't have kept it charged, but still it shouldn't have self-destructed. Home Depot did give me a refund. August 29, 2013
