Default Recommendation on solar batter chargers

What are your recommendations for solar battery chargers to keep your boat batteries charged?


Thanks!

I use a Noco solar charger to keep a trolling battery hot on my pond boat, the "Flat Bottom Girl". It works well. Model is the NOCO Battery Life BLSOLAR2 2.5 Watt Solar Battery Charger and Maintainer, got it from Amazon.

I got curious and checked the output in full sun and on a cloudy day. Was getting about 2.2 watts in full sun, and about 1.5 on a very cloudy day. Basically, as long as the sun is casting a shadow you will get some juice.

Got a solar panel on my deer stand. Battery stays up year around.
