Dunno how good the solar chargers are just looking to top my batteries up when away fishing / wild camping over a few days as my current batteries only last me 2 days.
Maybe another couple of batteries would be a better solution??
I think you have a 20 tohatsu which has an alternator which will charge at around 14volts put a volt meter in line you can then monitor your battery, cost for that £10 off eBay granted you don't run the engine all the time but that will bang more juice in than a solar panel, as said solar not going to help you need to look at a charging kit (second rectifier & fused loom) for my Suzuki was £106 tohatsu will be cheaper possibly,that would keep you going for your wild camping for a few days a second battery possible but it's getting more complicated and more risk with a spare floating about to be honest 20A battery and charge from engine will be all you need don't forget running to and from you will be charging.
