New solar powered battery charger from Gunson

Gunson has launched its new solar powered battery charger (part no: 77170), which it says is an effective way to charge and maintain 12 volt batteries and prevent them from being damaged if they completely discharge.

It says the new product will work in all daylight conditions and is fully weather resistant.

Gunson says this solar powered battery charger will trickle charge your vehicle’s battery, helping compensate for electronic drain and natural wastage.

The charging rate in bright conditions is 4.5W, which is ideal to maintain voltage and prevent battery drain in commercial vehicles, cars, motorcycles, caravans and boats.

It features four suction-cup mounts which will position the unit securely on a smooth surface.

The suction-cup mounts can also be positioned on the solar panel side so that the unit can be mounted inside windscreens.  It connects through the vehicle’s 12V accessory socket with the supplied adaptor or direct to the battery with the supplied crocodile clips.
