eric roberts's curator insight, December 11, 2012 12:24 PM

This is one of those stories that makes my blood boil. The number of people, mainly motorcyclists and golfers that just leave their batteries in a cold garage over the winter period. We are always getting people back to us saying that their battery wont take any charge after winter storage . The thing to do is to keep your battery charged over the winter peiod, if the battery is too flat, then it will not recover. The answer is to invest in a "plug and forget" charging system, Optimate and Numax make these devices. All you do is connect them up and the battery will be charged when the charge drops and will be ready to go after the winter perion...Eric Roberts http://www.batteriesontheweb.co.uk/shop/motorcycle-batteries

A small 12 volt solar panel with a couple of deep cycle batteries should take care of your lighting needs.
eric roberts's insight:

As sellers of many AGM Batteries to cutomers who use them for RV vehicles, we can see a great future in using solar panels to charge and store energy for their night time use. These new systems are developing because of the rush in the development of greener technology.
