Solar charger

Hi guys - have a 5w solar panel to keep the battery topped up, want to fit it in the Civic and Accord for when they are laying around. Where can I attatch the wires on the inside so it connects to the battery even when the keys are not in? I can't connect to the cigarette lighter as it's only live when the ignition is on. Any ideas? I don't want to drill holes etc...

Thanks in advance. :unsure:

is 5w really enough to give the battery any charge at all ?

Some of those solar chargers used to plug into the cigarette lighter and charged the battery that way. Not sure about the latest ones.
