A few years back my hubby bought a 1980 Corvette as his newest toy. We live in northern South Dakota, so we have to park the Vette in the garage during the winter months. The first winter we had the car we parked it, and every so often he would go fire it up and let it run a while. When spring came around he couldn’t wait to get out on the road again, but when he went to start the car he found a dead battery. He took out the battery and hooked it to a charger, and waited. A friend of ours also owns a Vette, an ’86 Vette, that gets put away for the winter. We asked what he does to keep his battery from dying. He told us
he has a solar battery charger that he hooks up and trickle charges the battery all winter. Naturally my hubby had to have one. Knowing this was the best thing for our battery life we went to take a look at the set up our friend had in his car.
To make his life easier our friend added a 12 Volt Accessory Outlet to his car. Now he doesn’t have to connect the charger directly to the battery with the battery clips. Instead, he plugs the solar charger into the accessory outlet and it trickle charges the battery from there. We decided to get the same solar charger he had since it seemed to work well. We found the Tracker Solar Battery Charger on this site through the Google shopping results. The price was great and delivery was quick. Now when we park the Vette for the winter we don’t worry about the battery. We park the Vette close to the garage window so the solar charger can get plenty of sunlight. We use the suction cups and put the solar panel right on the windshield. Lucky for us, owning an ’80 Vette, the battery is in the car, behind the driver seat. We use the battery terminal clips and just run the wire right between the seats. It’s that simple. We are sure glad our buddy told us about this charger and how easy it is to use. We’re also very happy with our experience shopping on this website. Thanks!!!
