Everyone pushes solar, and this is good, IF I am not
moving, but moving makes is pretty complicated. I am lucky, I had the foresight
to make an extension cord for the 12 Volt Solar Charging pad and I can run the
wire from the pad to the room, I suppose I always need about 6 meters or yards,
I do not have, but I can rig that.
I do suppose this pad wil charge the battery, and
continue to charge the battery.
