Will this product charge in artificial light?

Floresent
Asked by: PB
It is possible, but you would need to verify if the level of artificial light is appropriate by measuring the output voltage of the panel on the specific site.

will it overcharge the battery ?

Does it know when your battery is charged and shut itself off and on ?
Asked by: Wattsup
The 1.8W Solar battery maintainer is designed with enough power to offset natural battery drain, but not enough to overcharge a 12V battery if full.

Bought it to keep my 12V car battery that I use for an electric trolling motor charged. Worked fine to keep the battery topped up UNTIL it rained, and the solar panel sat in water for a week. Not waterproof.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1.8 Solar Battery Maintainer A very good battery maintainer for my boat. Does a nice job keeping my boat battery fully charged up and ready for fishing. Seems very sturdy and attaches easily to my boat windshield, and plugs easily into the cigarette lighter socket for trickle charging the battery. The solar panel isn't waterproof, so have wrapped my unit in clear poly wrap...sealing the edges with tape to keep moisture away from damaging the solar panel when using outdoors. Don't forget to unplug the unit while operating the motor to prevent over charging damage to the solar panel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.
