Solar Dash Charging System

The Solar Dash Charging System is a portable 20-watt solar panel that keeps batteries charged and counteracts the effects of parasitic loads on a battery.

When a vehicle isn’t running, some essential electrical components may still be draining the battery as a parasitic load. Trucks left sitting for a month or more can have a discharged battery when a driver tries to start it up again. This can result in battery replacement and extra work for drivers and technicians.

The Solar Dash is small enough to fit on a vehicle dashboard and plugs into any 12-volt power port. When left in the sun, the panel will recharge batteries daily and keep the vehicle in working condition. Also, because the Solar Dash is portable and easily connected and disconnected, it can be used on any vehicle that needs it’s batteries to be maintained during non-operation.
