I thought that, must have a window somewhere.

Wouldn't work for me as mine is totally enclosed.

Yup plug in trickle charger would be better I think - my old man uses one on his Focus RS Sunday car & has always used it on his kit cars etc

Better to get a plug in version then...Very little current consumption and surely better for a car kept indoors
Only if the garage has power. Presumably why these solar ones were developed.

Which, thinking about it, why don't car manufacturers develop a permanent battery charge solar solution to help those standing for long lengths ..............

Can I patent it ? :D

The Nissan Leaf has that as an option, although not with the focus on long length standing obviously.

For anyone looking for a plug-in trickle charger I can really recommend the C-tek range.

Thats what I would get a c-tek charger if it was standing for long periods or had lots of short runs. They are expensive for a charger but I believe you can charge through cigarette lighter on some models

So he can afford a 911 but can't afford an extension lead? :D



Its in a garage block away from the house, the charger is attached to the door then a cable to the battery

I've been seeing these everywhere lately. Nearly every motorshop seem to have them on display by the tills.
