    [QUOTE=themachinist;58900 I'm still calling BS on the panel taking 2 weeks to charge that battery. I mean what the flip is that panel good for if thats the best it can do. Its made for maintaining batteries not charging them from the dead. So If I got a battery big enough that wouldn't die by morning, the 5watter would be fine??!!?? And I'm sure it would help If I would take the "curly ques" flo.bulbs and use led instead. [/QUOTE]

    Kind of hard to call BS on a point when you have zero idea about that point. Apparently you know even less about light bulbs.

      If you think that nobody has answered your question then you should start thinking about why! It seems that you certainly are good at avoiding the real issue. You just won't think about all the references the experts (not including myself in that) on this site have made about the voltage of your battery..If your battery is under 10V there is a high probability that it is dead then nothing will work. Just for the hell of it, why don't you hook up your (working) battery from your chevy to the inverter and see what happens! The panel you bought was very cheap, do you ever wonder why they were so cheap? Some panels of very low wattage will just create heat inside a battery and not much else.
      Take out your car battery charger and hook it up to your battery, see what happens after 10 hours or so. Zippity Doo Daa Blah! (whatever that means)

        They went dead because you had no charge controller or blocking diode. You connected the battery directly to the solar panels, so your batteries back fed the panels at night and discharged them to ZERO, NOTTA, NOTHING.

              The item the link goes to is a useless toy - a total waste of money except as a trickle charger - should be worth maybe 1$ as a toy.
