How do I connect the Ring Solar 12V Trickle Battery Charger
The common way to connect the trickle solar charger is to:
1/ place the solar panel inside the cabin where it catches the maximum sunlight - ideally nearest to the front windscreen;
2/ feed the cable through the driver or passenger door opening towards the bonnet - there is usually a decent way to do this along the bottom side of the windscreen, which then leaves around 10cms of wire exposed between door opening and bonnet;
3/ the cable is attached to the battery using the crocodile clips provided.
If the vehicle maintains a 'live' 12V DC ports, or 'cigarette lighter' socket, you can use the adaptor for that, which keeps everything neatly in the cabin.
For vehicles that shut off the 12V DC internal 'cigarette lighter' port when the ignition is off, you cannot use that adaptor to charge the vehicle battery. However, even if the front port is shut off, some vehicles have a permanently 'on' 12V DC port in the rear cabin or rear luggage area, which can be used.
We do not recommend fitting a permanent cable adaptor in vehicle engine bays due to the various moving parts, however there is one available for purchase if you find it more convenient.
